Orioles prospects 6/24: Zach Britton’s rehab is still OK

Orioles prospects 6/24: Zach Britton’s rehab is still OK

Zach Britton continued his road back to the big leagues with another inning in Delmarva. Shout out also to Bowie’s Cedric Mullins, who was 4-5 with a home run. Gwinnett (Braves) 5, Norfolk Tides 3 The Tides had to string together a bullpen game. Well, it could have gone worse. All five of Gwinnett’s runs scored across three different home runs. Former Oriole Xavier Avery hit two home runs against his former organization. Tides batters had eight hits in the game, but only one of them went for extra bases, so that’s a hard way to win a baseball game. Erie (Tigers) 7, Bowie Baysox 3 A...

Dylan Bundy pitches Orioles to 8-3 win over Rays, ending 5-run streak at 20.

The Orioles had all parts of their game working today as they finally shut the door on allowing at least five runs per game. Last night the Orioles put themselves in the record books by allowing at least five runs for the 20th straight game, a weird and bad statistic that tied them with the 1924 Phillies for most of all time. An additional five runs allowed today would have put them in sole possession of this dubious record, but thanks to a strong start from Dylan Bundy that won’t be the case. Bundy pitched a strong seven innings and an eight-run game from the offense sealed the win. I...

Baltimore Orioles avoid breaking record they didn’t want

At least the Baltimore Orioles have company at the bottom. The O’s avoided extending their miserable stretch of terrible pitching Saturday afternoon by beating the Tampa Bay Rays, 7-3. While giving up three runs on seven hits and five walks isn’t exactly a great day from the mound, Baltimore finally kept an opponent under five […] The post Baltimore Orioles avoid breaking record they didn’t want appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Orioles prospects 6/23: Rain and walkoffs all around

Orioles prospects 6/23: Rain and walkoffs all around

One game was rained out and another was shortened, but the Orioles affiliates still found time for some interesting contests, with low minors sleeper prospects having good nights. Gwinnett (Braves) 4, Norfolk Tides 3 (6 innings, rain) The most exciting thing in this box score when I looked at it is that Chance Sisco participated in throwing out two runners. Hooray! Well, one of them appears to have been an ill-advised steal of home, but he also threw out a guy trying to steal third base. Any time there’s not like four stolen bases against Sisco is good. As for the rest, meh. The Tides...

Orioles lose to Rays, 15-5; Jimenez allows nine earned runs in start

Almost everything that could’ve went wrong for the Orioles on Friday night did. It was Tampa Bay’s night at Tropicana Field. As the final score indicates, it wasn’t exactly a great night for the Orioles in Tampa Bay. In fact, statistically speaking, it was one of the worst games of the season for Buck Showalter’s group. Below, the details of a tough AL East loss for the Birds. The recap Whatever rhythm Ubaldo Jimenez found in last weekend’s start against the Cardinals was not evident on this night to say the least. Early on, the trouble with control reared its ugly head and...

Orioles Futile Record-Tying GIF Angst Outlet

Orioles pitchers were once again pretty bad for the 20th game in a row and now they’ve tied the MLB record. You know what must be done. It is Friday night. The Orioles have tied an MLB record set in 1924 by allowing 5+ runs for the 20th consecutive game. As a matter of fact, they had managed to tie that record before the second inning of this game was over. Ubaldo Jimenez was bad. Alec Asher was bad. At different times, other Orioles were also bad. They will have a chance to get that record all for themselves in Saturday’s game. This game was just about the farthest thing from a...

Friday night Orioles game thread: at Rays, 7:10

Can the Orioles make it 20 games in a row giving up 5+ runs? We’ll find out as Ubaldo Jimenez pitches on Friday night in the Trop. Oh yes - it’s Ubaldo. This could be fate. This is it. The Orioles have a chance to make MLB history tonight. All they have to do is give up five or more runs. That would mark the 20th consecutive game of their doing so, which would tie the MLB record set in 1924 by the Philadelphia Athletic.s That would truly be an impressive level of failure. It’s almost like it’s fated in the cards or written in the stars, you know? Here’s the Orioles reaching for a...

Series Preview: Orioles (35-37) @ Rays (39-36)

After dropping three of four to the defending American League champion Cleveland Indians at Camden Yards, the Orioles will look to avoid falling into sole last place in the division over a three-game set in Tampa. The O’s kick off a six-game road trip starting this weekend at “The Trop.” For the Orioles, a lengthy stint on tour is just about the worst thing that they could have asked for due to their well-documented struggles away from the Yard this season.

Game Preview: Tampa Bay Rays vs Baltimore Orioles

Tonight, the Tampa Bay Rays will welcome a division rival to the Trop as they’ll take on the Baltimore Orioles to kickoff a three game series. The Rays are coming off a series victory over the Cincinnati Reds, taking the final two games of the three game set and they enjoyed an off day on Thursday. Heading into play tonight, the Rays are 39-36, sitting two and a half games back of the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees, who are tied for the division lead. The Rays have a half game lead over the Minnesota Twins for the second wild card spot. The Baltimore Orioles meanwhile, have had a...

Orioles-Rays series preview: AL East teams hovering around .500

Orioles-Rays series preview: AL East teams hovering around .500

The Orioles and Rays are still very much in postseason contention. This weekend’s series could help one of the two teams inch closer to the top of the division. The AL East is still very much up for grabs, good news for fans watching the recent slump in Baltimore. The baseball has been at times ugly but meaningful, more than some teams in the National League can say at this point in the summer. Every game seems to hold a good bit of weight right now, and the upcoming series against the Tampa Bay Rays should be no different. Below, the breakdown of the three-game series as the Orioles head...

Dan Duquette Seems to Have No Plans to Sell or Rebuild

With the Orioles continuing to wallow in mediocrity (or worse), falling to 35-37 from their season high-water mark of 22-10 (that’s 13-27 over their last 40 games), many fans and pundits have started to seriously consider the prospect of the team being sellers at the trade deadline, and starting at least a re-tooling for 2018, if not a full-scale rebuild for 2019 and beyond. Throw in the contract status of such key pieces as Manny Machado, Adam Jones, Zach Britton, and even Dan Duquette and Buck Showalter, and it’s clear […] The post Dan Duquette Seems to Have No Plans to Sell or...

What’s in a name for Oriole Trey Mancini?

What’s in a name for Oriole Trey Mancini?

Call him Boom Boom, Henry or the Pink Panther, this Mancini has been one of the Orioles’ brightest stars this year     After such a memorable start to his MLB career in late September last year, Trey Mancini looked to have a good shot at a roster spot in 2017. He played in only five games, but slugged three home runs in 15 plate appearances for an OPS of 1.471. This was a super-small sample size, but a hopeful one nonetheless – especially for a team not very deep in major-league ready prospects. In a 2017 year when there hasn’t been much to celebrate, but a mess of things to cry...

Orioles prospects 6/22: Good news from pitchers, including Zach Britton

Five starters, five very good performances throughout the Orioles minor-league system. In particular, a pair of 2016 MLB Draft selections had encouraging outings on Thursday. Norfolk Tides 11, Durham Bulls 3 Tyler Wilson got the nod for the Tides on Thursday, working into the seventh inning and allowing just two runs. He only struck out two, but scattered four hits and earned a win over 104 pitches. Pedro Alvarez led Norfolk with three hits and four RBI, a night that included him hitting his 15th HR of the year. He might only own a .221 average, but there’s still power in his swing. Chris...

Friday’s O’s Links: MLB Record, Here We Come!

The O’s were 10-2 against Cleveland in 2015-16, but the Tribe got some revenge this week. On top of taking three of four, they helped the Birds continue their now AL-record streak of allowing five-plus runs in 19 consecutive games. They can tie the all-time MLB record tonight (held by the 1924 Philadelphia Phillies) in Tampa. Mark Viviano tried to bring some levity to the depressing situation: Fake banner unfurled: @Orioles streak allowing 5 runs or more reaches 19 (AL record, 1 shy of @MLB record by 1923 Phillies). pic.twitter.com/kTx0GVSgdW […] The post Friday’s O’s Links: MLB...

Orioles fall to Indians 6-3, sit one game from history

The Orioles and Indians both had bad starting pitchers tonight, but the Orioles were worse at hitting. Does it feel like at this point the main reason that we are all tuning in to Orioles baseball is to see if they give up five runs? It kind of feels that way to me. Well, those of you who are hoping for the Orioles to break the record are in luck as the Orioles again game up five runs, this time in a 6-3 loss to the Indians. They are now just one game from tying the 1924 Phillies for allowing at least five runs in 20 consecutive games. Early on it looked like the Orioles might pile on the...

The *New* Oriole Way: Good Enough is Good Enough

It’s a bit mind-blowing that not long ago the Orioles sat atop the AL East with one of the best records in baseball. Now they sit one game below .500 sporting a pedestrian (35-36) record, tied for last place. If you stop and think about it, you have to wonder how they were ever 10 games over .500. Chris Davis struggled until he swung-and-missed himself onto the DL. If not for the Boston Red Sox Manny Machado might be near the Mendoza line. “Ace” Chris Tillman was on the shelf.

Maybe the projections finally got it right about the Orioles this time

Maybe the projections finally got it right about the Orioles this time

The Orioles have been beating PECOTA projections since 2012, but a bullpen full of injuries and disappointment has put them right on track in 2017. The Orioles under Buck Showalter have long been making preseason PECOTA projections look as clueless as the Orioles lineup against a rookie junk pitcher. PECOTA has been off by more than 10 wins when predicting the Orioles’ final record in four out of the last five years. In three of those years, they’ve underestimated the Fightin’ Bucks by at least 15 games. PECOTA may not hate the O’s specifically, but their algorithm certainly...

Thursday Thoughts: Machado Seems More Comfortable Hitting Second

This is a weekly column that dives into some random thoughts about the Orioles/MLB. I used to do eight as a nod to Cal Ripken Jr. This year, I’ll be cutting it down to four or five, so consider it the Earl Weaver–Brooks Robinson era of Thursday Thoughts. – A.S. 1. I was extremely surprised that the Orioles set a new record for futility this past week. In all my years of watching this team, there have been some very poor pitching staffs. Yet none of them have given up […] The post Thursday Thoughts: Machado Seems More Comfortable Hitting Second appeared first on Baltimore Orioles News...
