2012 Fantasy Baseball: Baltimore Orioles Fantasy Outlook

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

What do the birds have this year in fantasy?

Baltimore will have an uphill climb from the basement of the AL East in 2012. When you play in the same division as New York, Boston and Tampa, the chances of them finishing in the top three of that division are slim at best.

The Orioles don’t have many appealing fantasy options in 2012. SS J.J. Hardy hit 30 HR last season but has seen his share of time dealing with injuries. None of them are serious, but they are the day-to-day types that cost him an average of 50 games a season.

Fielder to the Nats?

Prince Fielder looks like he could be coming close to signing with either the Washington Nationals or the new Miami Marlins. If Fielder does leave Milwaukee, Matt Gamel would be expected to take over at first base. Gamel’s not much of an intriguing option though, as he’s only a career .222 hitter in only 85 games. If Fielder signs with the Nats, look for him to play first base with Michael Morse covering left field and Adam Laroche sliding over to the bench or being traded once spring training begins. (more…)
