What the heck are the Orioles doing messing around with Tony Kemp?

A regular feature since Mike Elias has been the Orioles general manager is a roster move that shakes up the assumed picture within days of Opening Day. It’s happened the past three years before this and he’s done it again two days before Opening Day 2024. The Orioles on Tuesday afternoon announced the signing of veteran infielder Tony Kemp to a major league contract ahead of the start of this season.

Kemp, 32, languished as a free agent for much of the offseason before signing a deal with the Reds after spring training had already begun. Cincinnati chose to release Kemp a week ago, putting him back out there for anyone to sign.
