A Look at the Orioles Potential 2010 Starting Line Up

Posted on January 28, 2010 by Ryan Heller

The Baltimore Orioles lineup going to look better rounded and more productive for the upcoming season. Let’s take a look at how the Orioles starting lineup will look for the season that is ahead of them.

Nick Markakis And Adam Jones Hope To Get The Orioles Line Up Back On Track.

Nick Markakis And Adam Jones Hope To Get The Orioles Line Up Back On Track.

At first base you will mostly see Garrett Atkins with that job, and he will also be a good utility guy.

At second base you will see the most loved player Brian Roberts who brings a lot of production for the Orioles and their lineup.

At shortstop you will have a gold glove caliber player Cesar Izturis, who is coming back for his second season with the Orioles, he should be more of a help for the Orioles this time around, as he has a season under his belt and he is more comfortable with the way the Orioles do things.

At third base (a position that he a has never played) the Orioles will welcome back All-Star player Miguel Tejada, his first go around with the Orioles he showed that he is a power hitter and has great fielding ability with a strong arm. Tejada is coming to the Orioles for his second time and he is going to be playing at a position he has never played before, he should be able to learn the position rather easy, as he is a ball player and will try anything to get in the lineup and shine no matter what position or spot in the lineup.

At catcher Matt Wieters will be more helpful this season, as he got his feet wet in the majors last season. This season Wieters should be more relaxed and ready to prove why he was the number one prospect.

In left field Nolan Reimold will be back for his second season in the majors, he showed a lot of promise last season with his ability to hit and field.

In center field Adam Jones, who won the gold glove for his play in the outfield last season. You will see a break out year from Jones this season, as he has proved that he is improving each time he bats or takes the field.

In right field Nick Markakis another one of the Orioles most prized hitters and has knack for making great plays in the outfield.

With a line up like this the Orioles should be able to do a lot of damage to the elite teams in the Major Leagues.
