The 2022 Orioles’ current Spring Training roster is attached. The first full-squad workout will be held on Monday, March 14. Games are scheduled to begin Friday, March 18, against the Toronto Blue Jays at Ed Smith Stadium.

Tony’s Take: No huge surprises in this group with Adley Rutschman headlining this group. The 24-year old catcher will be the opening day catcher unless the Orioles choose to do some clock manipulations which is doubtful at Rutschman’s age.

Outside of Rutschman, pitcher Grayson Rodriguez (#2) and Kyle Stowers (#7) are the two other top ten prospects officially invited to spring training. They both have a great opportunity to make their major league debuts in 2022.
