Birds Chatter: Spring Training Preview

Tony Pente and Terry Ford preview Orioles 2019 Spring Training

In this month’s show, Tony Pente and Terry Ford go over the players who will be competing for jobs in 2019 with the Orioles. In the first segment, they discuss starters and relievers though this was shot before the Orioles signed Nate Karns. Karns, who missed all of 2018, has the inside track to the 4th starter’s job if he can stay healthy and can regain the form that once made him a decent back of the rotation option.

In the second segment, they discuss the infielders and outfielders, including the interesting shortstop battle. In the last segment, they discuss some prospects you may see in Baltimore in 2019.
