Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy has been in the national spotlight this offseason, as he was awarded both Gold Glove and Silver Slugger awards. However, the latest place his name has been seen is the rumor mill.
While the rumors are mostly speculative at this point, there have been many concrete changes around the organization this week. Former Braves special assistant Dom Chiti has been hired as the Orioles bullpen coach, and Dave Anderson has been brought on as the O’s minor league infield coordinator.
This week, the postseason awards were announced. Buck Showalter received a third-place vote for AL Manager of the Year, and Chris Davis finished third behind Miguel Cabrera and Mike Trout for American League MVP.
These are just some of the top headlines that you may have missed this week. Be sure to check out MASNsports.com each Friday for the latest Weekly Wrap!
