Brian Ward, catcher

When the Orioles acquired Taylor Teagarden in a Dec. 1 trade with the Texas Rangers, they filled the backup catcher spot behind All-Star starter Matt Wieters. Ward was in big league camp primarily to help catch the numerous pitchers the Orioles have in Sarasota, and veteran Ronny Paulino's recent arrival made Ward's presence unnecessary.
