Major League Baseball’s Opening Day is almost here, and the AL East — which sent three teams to the playoffs in 2016 — could be hotly contested once again.
How do the Orioles stack up against their division opponents?
In this three-part series, I’ll compare the five AL East teams by ranking them, first through fifth, at every position on the diamond.
We’ll end with the pitching staffs and managers.
The second installment will be outfielders, designated hitters and benches.
Up today is the infield.
An Oriole infielder finishes first just once on today’s list. And it’s probably not who you’d expect.
