When you think of a club becoming a selling team, you have to look at its star players. For the Baltimore Orioles, two names come to mind and have come to mind for the entirety of the season.
Anthony Santander and Trey Mancini have been on everyone’s radars since the start of the 2022 season, but for different reasons. Mancini, due to contract issues and with Santander’s flash to fame, teams want to cash in on that to get the current impact.
5 players who could be available if the Baltimore Orioles decide to sell
Trey Mancini, 1B/OF/DH
Teams of interest: Seattle, NYM, SD, Brewers
He’s versatile, a clubhouse leader, and puts the team on his back. What more could someone want from a regular everyday ball player? This is Trey Mancini, and the Baltimore Orioles could very quickly lose him. Extention talks have been a constant nightmare, and all that does is elude to his departure. In a perfect world, he stays, but in a selling world, he might just leave.
Anthony Santander, RF/LF/DH
Teams of interest: LAD, SD, ???
At 27 years old and two years left on his deal, Tony Taters is a hot commodity for anyone looking for a power-hitting outfielder. The challenging part with Santander is how he has never really been seen as the face of the franchise or part of the rebuild. As much as Charm City loves their Tony, he might be the best-selling piece the O’s have regardless of whether they sell.
