More Orioles observations in early days of exhibition games

SARASOTA, Fla. – The Orioles are playing their fifth exhibition game this afternoon, hosting the Tigers with Grayson Rodriguez making his first start.Among my camp observations prior to the opener were Jackson Holliday prepping to play second base, teammates being excited to have Dillon Tate back, Cedric Mullins resembling the pre-injury version of himself, players being angry about the Division Series sweep but moving past it, no one worrying about Gunnar Henderson’s oblique or John Means being a month behind, no one showing panic over Kyle Bradish’s elbow injury, Yennier Cano’s...

Cole Irvin Shows Off Increased Velo in Spring Debut

Last week we learned that, unfortunately, both Kyle Bradish and John Means would both be on the shelf to start the 2024 campaign (at the very least). Nobody in Birdland was excited about the prospect of Cole Irvin once again possibly being a member of the rotation. The 30-year-old southpaw began 2023 as a member […] The post Cole Irvin Shows Off Increased Velo in Spring Debut appeared first on Eutaw Street Report.

Wednesday Bird Droppings: Cobbling together the bullpen

Wednesday Bird Droppings: Cobbling together the bullpen

Mike Lang / USA TODAY NETWORK Kjerstad has Opening Day hopes, Mullins is healthy, and Irvin is trim. Good morning, Birdland! There remains time for the Orioles to address the gaps in their pitching staff. With the injuries to Kyle Bradish and John Means, some roles are being reassigned. In all likelihood, it will force Tyler Wells and Cole Irvin into rotation work early in the season. That, in turn, will weaken a bullpen that already felt an arm thin after DL Hall was dealt to acquire Corbin Burnes. For now, it seems like Mike Elias prefers to dig through the scrap heap...

In O's 2024 rotation, Cole Irvin and Tyler Wells, come on down

The first day of O’s spring training led to some shuffling of the Baltimore pitching staff. It was quite the day as we found out right-hander Kyle Bradish would begin the year on the injured list and likely be joined at that point by lefty John Means.So, Tyler Wells and Cole Irvin, come on down.Two pitchers we figured to have bullpen roles on Opening Day, now likely need to move to the rotation.This is not bad news for the Orioles, as Wells was one of the American League’s best pitchers in the first half of 2023 and Irvin had an ERA of 3.22 from June 10 on last year. The ability to hold...

Photo by Mike Carlson/MLB Photos via The O’s haven’t had announced any new injuries since the first day of camp. Let’s keep it that way for the rest of spring, please. Good morning, Camden Chatters. I’m happy to report that yesterday was a completely uneventful day at Orioles spring training. To our knowledge, no new injuries or any other calamities occurred at camp. It was just a perfect, utterly boring day of baseball players working out and absolutely nothing interesting happening. After day one of camp brought the discouraging news of Kyle Bradish’s UCL...

Daniel Johnson reunited with Kyle Bradish in Orioles camp

SARASOTA, Fla. – Daniel Johnson remembers Kyle Bradish being really good at New Mexico State.Bradish was a freshman pitcher in 2016 who hadn’t seen anyone quite like the junior outfielder and future friend.Johnson is in Orioles’ camp as a non-roster invite and the only outfielder on the original list submitted by the Orioles. Bradish, of course, is the 2023 ace and fourth-place finisher in American League Cy Young voting who’s beginning this season on the injured list.  Their paths split as professionals, but they’re back inside the same clubhouse in spring training. One of them...

Saturday Bird Droppings: Picking up the pieces

Mike Lang / USA TODAY NETWORK At least there’s Corbin Burnes, the youthful talent in Birdland, and a podcast! Good Morning, Birdland! Well, what was supposed to be an exciting week turned into a huge bummer pretty quickly. Kyle Bradish is definitely starting the year on the IL, and John Means admitted on Friday that he’s likely to do the same. The difference is that Means expects to be back in April while Bradish will need a bit longer. The lack of specifics on the righty is alarming, although unsurprising. Mark laid out the current state of the Orioles rotation...

Corbin Burnes trending back towards his Cy Young-winning season is more important than ever. | Photo by Stacy Revere/ Thursday’s news about Kyle Bradish and John Means was a big shakeup to the expected picture When the Orioles acquired Corbin Burnes from the Brewers earlier this month, visions of an amazing starting rotation going from Burnes at the top all the way down to Dean Kremer at the bottom danced through the heads of most everyone in Birdland.

For now, we have to put on hold any talk that this might be among the best O’s rotations ever.
