Fantasy Impact:

Orioles general manager Mike Elias said Mateo would see "quite a bit more" time in center this spring given the glut of elite young infielders coming up through the team's system for 2024, including No.1 prospect, and shortstop, Jackson Holliday. Mateo started hot in 2023 but ended up hitting just .217 with seven home runs, albeit with 32 stolen bases, across 116 games played.
