Pain-free again, Davis ready to punish baseballs

It probably says something about the Orioles' stubborn reliance on power that even prodigious home run hitter Chris Davis conceded recently that there is more to winning than seeing who can hit a baseball the farthest. Obviously, the Orioles do that better than anyone, but several years at or near...

New infielder Chris Johnson hopes to re-energize his career with Orioles

Veteran corner infielder Chris Johnson had other opportunities when he chose to sign with the Orioles, but it wasn't hard to see where he would get the most playing time in spring training.

Orioles sign Chris Johnson to minor-league deal

Orioles sign Chris Johnson to minor-league deal

The third baseman may see time in Triple-A, where his dad is the manager. The Orioles have reached a minor-league deal with infielder Chris Johnson, according to a team announcement. Johnson, 32, spent last season with the Marlins, hitting just .222/.281/.329 with five homers in 113 games while seeing time at first base, third base and left field. His market was weakened by the lack of teams looking for third base help this winter, though Miami retained some interest if an injury occurred during spring training. Baltimore is obviously set at the corners with Manny Machado and Chris Davis,...

With Chris Carter signing for cheap, should Orioles have signed him instead of Mark Trumbo?

With Chris Carter signing for cheap, should Orioles have signed him instead of Mark Trumbo?

Chris Carter hit 41 home runs last year, is only 30 years old, and just signed with the Yankees for only $3.5 million. Sometimes the signings that the Orioles don’t make are as interesting as the ones they do make, if only for purposes of comparison. Earlier in the offseason, before re-signing Mark Trumbo, the Orioles were linked here and there to slugger/strikeout king Chris Carter. On Tuesday afternoon, Carter signed a one year, $3.5 million contract with the Yankees. Carter led the National League with 41 home runs last season. Despite that, he was non-tendered by the Brewers, who...

Chris Davis says he’s healthy now, so bring on another Orioles home run crown

Chris Davis says he’s healthy now, so bring on another Orioles home run crown

Even though he was hurt for a lot of 2016, Davis still hit 38 home runs. So how many can he hit when healthy? How strong does a person have to be to hit 38 home runs in a season, while playing most of the year with a dislocated thumb in the top hand on his bat? As strong as Chris Davis, who performed that very feat during the 2016 season. Davis revealed the nature of the injury for the first time in his media availability during Saturday’s Orioles FanFest. That Davis was hurt is not news on its own. A mystery hand injury was alluded to vaguely and repeatedly by the cadre of Orioles beat...

Davis and O'Day in good health - School of Roch

Orioles first baseman Chris Davis said he started to swing a bat about a month ago and hasn't experienced any discomfort in his left hand. It's a sizeable piece of good news in the offseason. Davis dislocated his left thumb early in the 2016 season and continued to play through...
