Revisiting my six ‘reasonable moves’ for the Orioles — and adding another for good measure

Sign Jon Jay

Now that Cashner and Tillman are in the fold, this is my new rallying cry. I doubt it will happen now, because it hasn’t happened yet. And the Orioles have added left-handed hitting outfielders who can play all three outfield positions in Colby Rasmus and Alex Presley, both of whom signed minor league deals. Despite still being on the market, you’d think Jay will still command a multi-year deal, and the Orioles are more comfortable with one-year deals because they don’t want to block developing outfielders such as Austin Hays, Cedric Mullins and DJ Stewart. But we’re talking a two-year deal here for a guy who brings good defense and on-base skills and should be under-market by now. The diversity of offensive skills and winning pedigree that Jay brings is worth a second year, in my opinion. I’ve never been too concerned about having too much talent on a roster.
