The 2023 season did not end the way that the Baltimore Orioles hoped. Despite being among the absolute best teams in all of baseball in the regular season, they were unable to stop the all-of-a-sudden red hot hitting Texas Rangers in route to getting swept out of the ALDS.
In many ways, what the Orioles accomplished this season was remarkable. They won 101 games despite having fairly questionable starting pitching depth and one of the younger lineups in all of baseball. That they were able to be the top seed in the AL despite all of that points to how much talent is in the organization. While it hurts right now, the future is clearly very bright in Baltimore.
However, that doesn't mean that changes do not need to be made. The Orioles definitely could use some upgrades on their pitching staff as well as maybe at a couple positions in the field. Before we can even begin to process who those upgrades may be this offseason, it is important to look at who could be heading out of town this offseason
Here's a look at 5 Orioles players that won't be back in 2024
Unlike a lot of teams across MLB, Baltimore's roster decisions appear to be fairly straightforward going into the offseason. They don't have any players that they need to make hard decisions about whether or not to extend the qualifying offer to nor do they really have guys that are heading into their later arbitration years that could get notably nontendered. What they do have, though, are some guys that are about to hit free agency that shouldn't be back in 2024.
Lets take a look at some of the Orioles players that aren't likely to be back next season.
