Prospect Report: CF Dariel Alvarez - Three Run Special

Happy birthday to 'Razor' Ramon Hernandez, who played 3 somewhat underrated seasons with the O's before being shipped off to Cincinnati for Brandon Waring, Justin Turner, and Ryan Freel. Also celebrating a birthday today is David Wells. His 1 season with the O's (1996) was spectacular statistically, but he did compile nearly 3 bWAR thanks to over 220 IP.
