A few questions for O’s fans

Why not 10? No reason. Or maybe a shortened spring training, so a shortened amount of questions. No, not really. Just no reason.

Major League Baseball will not start as planned on March 26. The Orioles were scheduled to open at home with a three-game series with the Yankees followed by a three-game series with Boston. I won’t be covering the team during a scheduled first road series in St. Louis. I have never been to St. Louis and was looking forward to it. Maybe I still get to go there later if and when a new schedule comes out.

While you wait to get a few questions from me, here are a few quick notes on spring training 2020.

Davis-Elbow-Bump-Ruiz-Black-Sidebar.jpg* Among players that had more than two or three at-bats, Chris Davis was the leading hitter at .467 (7-for-15). Rio Ruiz was next at .440 (11-for-25).

* Anthony Santander led the club with four doubles.

* Davis and Pat Valaika led in home runs with three each.

* Davis led the club with nine walks, leading to a .615 on-base percentage. No one else had more than five and that was Mason Williams.

* Among pitchers with a spring ERA of 0.00, Branden Kline led in innings with 5 2/3, followed by Dean Kremer with 5 1/3.

* Tom Eshelman led the club with 10 spring training innings followed by Keegan Akin (9 2/3) and Bruce Zimmermann (7 2/3).

Now, a few questions:

* So when do you predict the season will start and how many games will be played?

* What will be the opening day roster size whenever that day is?

* What was the best thing to happen in O’s spring training?

* What happened during spring that proved concerning?

* What non-roster players (not currently on the 40-man) could make the opening day roster?
