Baltimore Orioles: impact of Matt Wieters’ return

The Baltimore Orioles may have something to look forward to in the coming week as their starting catcher Matt Wieters plans to return June 4th against the Cleveland Indians. Being two games behind first place of the American League East division, the O’s are looking for a spark that can put them past the leading New York Yankees. Can the 29-year-old Wieters be a key factor for...

Orioles’ development of Wright and Wilson looks good

Normally, starting two rookie pitchers with a combined total of two Major League starts in a double header is a recipe for two tallies in the loss column. That would be the case for most teams, but after years of struggling to develop Major League ready starting pitching, the Baltimore Orioles appear to finally have developed a pair of starters who can be competent pieces in a big...

Has Matt Wieters lived up to expectations?

Tonight marks six years since the major league debut of Baltimore Orioles catcher Matt Wieters. Wieters fielded a bunt and recorded an out on the very first pitch of that game, and when he stepped to the plate for the first time, was welcomed by a standing ovation and enormous applause from the Baltimore crowd. Matt Wieters came into his career with near-messianic expectations, at...

Mike Wright battles for win

Baltimore Orioles’ rookie right-hander Mike Wright entered the nightcap of yesterday’s twinbill with the Chicago White Sox with a 0.00 ERA and 14.1 straight scoreless innings to start his career. That flawless earned run average lasted all of one batter. Adam Eaton took Wright deep leading off the game, and the scoreless streak was over. Wright did not make a terrible pitch to...

Tyler Wilson’s first start is a good one

Tyler Wilson has been on quite the up-and-down journey the past ten days. Wilson, the Baltimore Orioles’ rookie right-handed pitcher, was initially called up last week and made his debut on May 20 against the Seattle Mariners. He got in one more game in the opener of the Orioles’ weekend series in Miami against the Marlins. With bullpen innings piling up for the big club, Wilson...

J.J. Hardy and Steve Pearce Have Major Handshake Issues

It’s been a rough first 44 games for the Orioles’ J.J. Hardy and Steve Pearce. Combined, both players combine for a WAR of just 0.2 (via FanGraphs) and seven home runs, which probably isn’t what Orioles were hoping for when Nelson Cruz packed up his boomstick and jetted over to Seattle. However, what’s even more concerning is that the duo’s struggles have apparently followed...

Ubaldo Jimenez Dials up the Past

I understand the phrase “playing with house money.” I’ve used it myself a fair amount of times. So as I’m about to suggest the Baltimore Orioles are playing with house money regarding the current Ubaldo Jimenez, I stop. Quite literally they are playing with their own. They have been since February 2014 when they signed him to a four-year contract totaling $50 million. ...

Baltimore Orioles: Matusz suspension presents dilemma for MLB

This past weekend was not a pleasant one for the Baltimore Orioles as they lost two of three to the lowly Marlins. Watching the Orioles trying to score runs was painful, as they put up a goose egg in a 13-inning game Saturday. However, the Orioles pitching staff was in the spotlight during that particular game when relief pitcher Brian Matusz was ejected in the extra inning affair...

Vol 7: AL East Weekly Wrap-Up

Mike Wright had a great week for the Baltimore Orioles I think that through the first few series of all these AL East teams being outside of the division, we can clearly see that the AL East might end up being the worst division at seasons end. All teams in this division outside of the Tampa Bay Rays don’t pitch very well, all teams can hit outside of Tampa, and 3/5 times have...

Orioles Pitcher Brian Matusz Ejected For Foreign Substance On Arm (Video)

Baltimore Orioles pitcher Brian Matusz ran into a little trouble during extra innings of Saturday’s game against the Miami Marlins. It wasn’t because of poor performance, but rather for the possible performance enhancer on his right forearm. Marlins manager Dan Jennings, who earned his first career win Saturday night, didn’t waste any time violating one of the unwritten...

Brian Matusz ejected for having foreign substance on arm

For the second time in three days, an MLB pitcher was ejected for having a foreign substance on his arm. On Saturday, the lucky (or unlucky, I guess) recipient of an ejection was Baltimore Orioles reliever Brian Matusz, following in the footsteps of Brewers reliever Will Smith, ejected on Thursday from the Brewers-Braves game. Matusz retired two batters in the 12th inning of...

The Potential New J.D. Martinez

As far as health is concerned, the Orioles have had something of a middle-infield catastrophe, with injuries to J.J. Hardy, Ryan Flaherty, and Jonathan Schoop. Injuries sometimes force teams to do creative things, and what we saw Buck Showalter do was push Steve Pearce to second base on the fly. Pearce had never played the […]

Adam Jones Is Up to Something

Monday afternoon, I participated in an Orioles-centric podcast, where one of the things I was supposed to talk about was Manny Machado. I wrote about Machado a couple of weeks ago, and more specifically, I wrote about him suddenly exercising a lot more patience at the plate. From what we understand about plate-discipline statistics, they […]

Orioles workers who lost wages during protest will be paid

In late April, Baltimore Orioles employees lost wages for an entire week. Two games were justifiably canceled and one was played in front of an empty Camden Yards stadium, while three others were moved to Tampa Bay where the Orioles acted as the home team. The cancelations were a direct result of civil unrest in Baltimore, from those protesting the death of Freddy Gray at the...
