This Baltimore Orioles team is extremely young, but there are still a few milestones that could be hit before the closeout of the 2022 campaign.
Milestones and history are nothing new to the Baltimore Orioles. From Frank, Brooks, Earl, Eddie, Cal, and so many more, the O’s are rich in narrative. Although this team might be one of the youngest on record, they do have a few storylines to keep track of over the 2022 campaign.
For starters, let’s dig into the Baltimore Orioles’ most resident player and one who is climbing the homerun ladder in the O’s history books. Currently, the Orioles’ HR leaders go like this: #5 Adam Jones, #4 Brooks Robinson, #3 Boog Powell, #2 Eddie Murray, and #1 Cal Ripken Jr.
Trey Mancini Home Run Milestone
Current Baltimore Orioles HRs: 110
Projected HRs in 2022: 20, 127 Career
Boom Boom Trey currently is sitting at #25 overall on the Baltimore Orioles Home Run leaderboard, seven behind Matt Wieters and ten behind B.J. Surhoff. If Trey can get to 20 homers on the year, that will take him up to #18 on the list and just passing Orioles great Paul Blair.
Milestones that the Baltimore Orioles players could reach in 2022
In his four full seasons of playing in the big leagues, Mancini has averaged 26 home runs a season. Even though he has been smacking the cover off of the ball, Trey is behind the curve as far as homers go. The jury is still out on whether or not he will be in Charm City next year, but this is quite the feat, considering he has only played four full seasons in the bigs.
