Orioles reassign Holliday among today's roster cuts

SARASOTA, Fla. – Jackson Holliday will begin the 2024 season at Triple-A Norfolk.

The Orioles announced this afternoon that prospects Holliday, Coby Mayo and Connor Norby were reassigned to minor league camp and outfielders Heston Kjerstad and Kyle Stowers were optioned.

Right-hander Albert Suárez and catcher David Bañuelos also were reassigned. But Holliday is the big news.

Baseball’s No. 1 prospect batted .311/.354/.600 in 15 games, with three doubles, two triples, two home runs and six RBIs. He was vying for playing time at second base, with Gunnar Henderson entrenched at shortstop.

Today’s move with Holliday could signal that the team is keeping Ryan McKenna as a fifth outfielder or carrying second baseman Kolten Wong, whose opt-out date is today.

Tyler Nevin also remains in camp and can play the corner infield and outfield.

Colton Cowser apparently has made the club as the fourth outfielder.

Mayo and Norby had impressive camps but were ticketed for Norfolk. Stowers led the club with seven home runs and 14 RBIs and made a strong push for inclusion on the roster.

This story will be updated.
