Saturday Bird Droppings: Still bummed by the Holliday decision

Good Morning, Birdland

Mike Elias and the Orioles’ front office have determined that Jackson Holliday still has a few things to learn in Triple-A Norfolk. Therefore, the decision was made on Friday to re-assign the top prospect to minor league camp, ending his hopes of making the Opening Day roster in 2024

If we step back for a moment, it is not a totally surprising call. Holliday just turned 20 this past offseason, and he has only 18 games of Triple-A experience under his belt. He’s already way ahead of schedule, and if we travel back to the start of camp, this always seemed to be the most likely outcome.
