Weekly Wrap: A week to remember

What a week.

After the media and fans spent most of the offseason speculating about how inactive the Orioles were, they had so much to talk about with the addition of two new pitchers this week.

Suk-min Yoon was introduced to the media Tuesday. While Yoon was a likely starter for the Orioles, news broke just a few hours after Yoon was announced that has potential to send him to the bullpen.

This was the first spring training week in which all players were present, giving Buck Showalter early looks at players, including Manny Machado, who is recovering from knee surgery.
