Duquette is doing the right thing. Starting pitching is Baltimore's biggest need. The outfield is covered. I think second base will be weak, but that is beyond improving at this point in the off-season. I think a Kelly Johnson signing or even an Omar Infante signing would have been smart, but that's in the past. The Orioles have four major league starters (three and a half?) and no real depth behind that. I don't really consider Kevin Gausman
depth, because he is currently working on his own timeline, not the team's timeline, if that makes any sense. He should be called up when he is ready, not when the team needs him. Freddy Garcia, or Jair Jurrjens, for example, get called up when the team needs them, not if they're pitching to a 2.50 ERA in AAA. Back to the point, the Orioles will never survive in the major league east with five major league starters, let alone four. Real depth needs to be acquired, and a bonified starter. Designated hitter is also very weak. Reimold? Pearce? Urrutia? Young? C'mon, no Kendry Morales, but please get somebody that can be reasonably paired with Delmon Young/Steve Pearce.
