In a few weeks, we’ll be running a two-team mock expansion draft here at MLBTR. Currently, we’re creating 15-player protected lists for each of the existing 30 teams. You can catch up on the rules for player eligibility here.
Free agent Jose Iglesias has a club option for 2021, but we won’t force the Orioles to use a protected spot on him. We will make them include Chris Davis and Alex Cobb, players with full or partial no-trade rights. After those two, I’ll lock in seven more players:

Dwight Smith Jr.
With that, we turn it over to the MLBTR readership! In the poll below, please select exactly six players you think the Orioles should protect in our upcoming mock expansion draft. Click here to view the results.
