Buck Showalter is such a resourceful manager that he’s often take it for granted. After Jim Johnson was traded, he surely heard, “Oh Buck, don’t worry, you’ll figure it out.”
Jim Johnson is gone. Francisco Rodriguez is, too. Troy Patton will be missing for the season’s first month.
Buck Showalter didn’t know anything about Josh Stinson when he was picked up the Orioles. By the end of the season, he really liked him.
BALTIMORE – The Orioles have 11 pitchers in their bullpen now. Three of them, Jason Hammel, Steve Johnson and Josh Stinson weren’t there 10 days ago.
