#2: Nelson Cruz (2014)

Along with Johnathan Schoop, Cruz is the only other player on this list who has yet to retire. Cruz isn't currently on an MLB roster but he played in 49 games earlier this season with the San Diego Padres at the age of 43. Cruz has been one of the most productive hitters of this generation and he had one very successful season with the Orioles in 2014.

After signing a 1 year deal in the offseason, Cruz led the majors in home runs with 40 and had 108 RBI's with a slash line of .271/.333/.525. He was a key cog on an Orioles team that went to the ALCS for the first time since 1997.

After his highly successful season with the O's, Cruz left for Seattle where he spent 4 seasons with the club. Since then he's played for the Twins, Rays, Nationals, and most recently the Padres. Cruz currently sits at 464 career homeruns over 19 MLB seasons.

#1: Adam Jones (2013)

Adam Jones was a fan favorite in Baltimore and was the obvious leader and captain of many good Orioles teams from 2008-2018. One of his best years came in 2013, when he clubbed 33 home runs with 108 RBI's.

He had a slash line of .285/.318/.493 and was one of the best centerfielders in baseball that season. He would go on to make the All Star game, win a silver slugger and gold glove, and received some MVP votes as well.

Jones was a driving force in the culture change in Baltimore and was vital to the Orioles return to relevancy. He played with the Orioles through the 2018 season, departing in the off-season to Arizona where he spent one year. He also played for 2 seasons in Japan before retiring from professional baseball in 2022. He finished his tremendous career as a 5 time All Star, 4 time Gold Glove winner, and 1 time silver slugger with 282 career home runs.
