Orioles Rumors: 3 Players Not Expected Back Next Season

What a fun year it was for the Baltimore Orioles! They made a real push for a playoff spot after being predicted to be one of the worst clubs in the league. An 83-79 record from a rebuilding team is impressive, and now they will be aiming to improve on that in 2023. However, they will, like all teams, have departures this offseason. Let's look at three of them.

Rougned Odor: Rougned Odor has the opportunity to test the open market, and it seems likely that he will. The nine-year veteran is coming off of a season that saw him have 13 home runs, 53 RBIs, and a .207 batting average. Overall, it was a year of mixed results for him, but given his long MLB resume, he should be able to find a new home.

Jesus Aguilar: Jesus Aguilar joined the Orioles near the end of the season after his tenure with the Miami Marlins came to an end. In 129 games between the two teams, he had 16 home runs, 51 RBIs, and a .235 batting average. He was brought in to try to help the Orioles secure a playoff spot, but, unfortunately, he did not make too much of an impact. Therefore, do not expect Baltimore to bring him back. 

Robinson Chirinos: The Orioles are likely to part ways with 38-year-old Robinson Chirinos. Their catching depth has improved, so expect to see him hit the free-agent market.
