Since Mike Elias took over as the Orioles’ head of baseball operations eight months ago, he’s hired a new manager, Brandon Hyde, brought in Sig Mejdal to head up the analytics department, conducted an amateur draft and signed players in the international market.

The July 31 trade deadline is coming in less than three weeks.
That’s an action-packed eight months, but is it enough to genuinely evaluate Elias’ tenure.
