Orioles put 44 players on initial camp roster; Mancini placed on injured list

The Orioles released the names of their initial 44 players on the 60-man summer camp roster on Sunday.

They added right-handed pitcher Cesar Valdez, who was in minor league camp and used as a fill-in during early spring games to the list. The 35-year-old Valdez struck out nine while walking none and gave up two hits in five innings.

Trey Mancini, who is recovering from colon cancer surgery and will not play in 2020, was placed on the 60-day injured list. The Orioles’ 40-man roster is now at 38.

Among the players who were on the 50-man roster when transactions were frozen in late March but not on this roster are: left-hander Bruce Zimmermann, right-hander Evan Phillips. catcher Taylor Davis, infielder Richard Urena, and outfielders Yusniel Diaz and Mason Williams.

David Hess, who was sent to Triple-A Norfolk after the end of camp, was added to the camp roster.

Phillips was rehabbing a sore right elbow when spring training ended. Among those left off the list are: left-handed pitcher Keegan Akin, right-handed pitcher Dean Kremer and infielder/outfielder Ryan Mountcastle, who are expected to see major league action in 2020. Outfielder Cedric Mullins, who was sent down to Norfolk along with Hess and Mountcastle, is also not on the list.
