Orioles GM Dan Duquette Is Aiming To Build A Deep Pitching Staff

General Manager of the Baltimore Orioles Dan Duquette joined Ed, Rob and Ken to talk about the Orioles’ hot start to the season and the changes to the pitching staff.

Duquette started by talking about all the moves the Orioles have made recently acquiring pitchers. He said, “well we’ve been trying to build our pitching staff and the depth of our pitching staff. I kind of look at building a pitching staff like building a bookcase, you need the top starter on the front side and a top closer on the backside.”

As for Alec Asher who could make his Orioles debut soon, Duquette said, “I think he has a little less than one year experience he came up last year at the end of the season with Philadelphia and he put together five strong performances…we liked him when he was at Texas he was a key part of that Cole Hamels trade.”

Duquette also went on to talk about Chris Tillman and when he may possibly return to the team, and how important fast starts are for baseball teams but especially for the O’s facing a lot of AL East opponents early.
