    Orioles' Terrin Vavra hopeful to be first base option; Heston Kjerstad 'for sure' believes he can reach majors in 2023

    Terrin Vavra believes his skill set makes him unique among members of the Orioles' roster. Aware Baltimore is looking for a left-handed-hitting complement to Ryan Mountcastle at first base, Vavra's focus this offseason has been “being able to play everywhere,” he said at Saturday's happy hour to close the day's Birdland Caravan events. Throughout his rookie season, the 25-year-old did pregame drills at first base but has never appeared there in his professional career. “It's something that the more I take reps over there, the better it gets, the more comfortable I get,” Vavra said.

    Orioles star Adley Rutschman is expected to be one of the best in baseball. The pressure is 'more exciting than anything.'

    Opening beer cans for Orioles fans during Saturday's Birdland Caravan happy hour, Adley Rutschman got hasty, prompting a Checkerspot Brewing Company employee to jokingly remind him to make sure the patrons paid for their drinks. A nearby fan offered a reason the Orioles' catcher should have been able to get away with it. Such a viewpoint is likely common among Baltimore's fanbase after Rutschman's arrival miraculously spurred the Orioles into contention. With Rutschman putting up numbers that eventually resulted in Most Valuable Oriole honors and a runner-up finish in American League Rookie of the Year voting, the Orioles played at an 89-win pace with him on their roster.

    Turning down lease option another case of Orioles disregarding public perception

    The Orioles don't seem to care what you think. On Wednesday, the team — meaning CEO and Chairman John Angelos and whoever he might have asked for input — decided to decline the option in its lease with the Maryland Stadium Authority that would have extended the agreement by five years. A source with knowledge of the situation told The Baltimore Sun the team hopes to have a long-term lease by Major League Baseball's All-Star break in July.
