Welington Castillo to Play in WBC

Orioles short on catching?


Catchers needed for Spring Training, Castillo gone for thee weeks

New Orioles catcher Welington Castillo has decided to represent the Dominican Republic along with new teammate Manny Machado. With Austin Wynns hurt in the Series Del Caribe, the Orioles appear to be short on spring training catchers.

Broadcaster and former Oriole great Mike Bordick told us last evening that he and many other Orioles employees and players would love to have Matt Wieters back on a one year deal.

Concerns about Wieter’s hand injury being more serious than Scott Boras had let on still cloud the issue.

Boras says multiple teams are putting in their final offers for the former Oriole.

Michael Williams has been an Orioles fan since the sixties when his family moved from Reading Pa to York Pa. Also, the Phillies and 1964. His Grandfather got the Chef Boyardee box seats and Mike was hooked. Brooks Robinson calls him not a fan, but a friend. He has been a member of the Orioles Hangout since early in the New Millennium and Managing Editor since 2011. Or so it seems. He lives in Harrisburg PA, down by the river. Not currently in a van.
