The Orioles Opening Day Roster is Set

"Hello, ladies." - USA TODAY Sports

The final roster decision was a victory for Team Steve, as Pearce made the team.

With the official moves confirming what we figured might happen - Mark Hendrickson, Jair Jurrjens and Conor Jackson re-assigned to AAA Norfolk - the Orioles have set their roster for Opening Day.

Here's the first version of your 2013 Orioles roster - which, knowing Dan Duquette as we do, will not be the only version of the Orioles roster. Indeed, one of the following names will be shuffled off before the fifth game of the season, as things stand right now, when Chris Tillman returns from the disabled list.

Chris Davis
