Tuesday Bird Droppings: Orioles camp is in its final sprint

Good morning, Camden Chatters.

Spring training is nearing its end. After the Orioles’ second and final off day of the spring yesterday, they’ve got just seven games remaining over the next six days (including a Saturday split-squad) before packing their bags and leaving Sarasota. Even with Opening Day so tantalizing close — only nine days away now! — the O’s still have a whopping 47 players remaining at camp.

That’s a ton of roster left to cut down and very little time to do it. I can’t recall another spring in which the O’s had so many players hanging around this late into Grapefruit League play.
