ORIOLES RUMORS & GOSSIP

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...

Doing the Little Things Helping the Orioles Win

The Baltimore Orioles have won two games in a row and inched their way back to one game below .500. The last two victories, however, have not come easy. On Thursday, the Orioles took a 5-4 win from the Seattle Mariners with an eighth inning run. Last night’s 8-5 win over the Miami Marlins was more difficult than the final score would indicate, as the Orioles dug their way out of...

Tyler Wilson and T.J. McFarland could shore up Orioles’ Bullpen

A strength of the Baltimore Orioles the past three winning seasons has been the team’s bullpen. The Orioles have defied the Pythagorean odds and the regression models, especially in one-run and extra-inning games, thanks to an uncanny ability to hold late leads and keep runs off the scoreboard once the starter leaves the game. In the team’s playoff seasons of 2012 and 2014, the...

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 […]

Orioles’ Miguel Gonzalez is Just a Gamer

You could forgive Miguel Gonzalez if he was ready to throw in the towel on last night’s start against the Seattle Mariners after the third inning. After three innings, the Baltimore Orioles’ right-hander had already allowed four runs on two home runs, including a big three-run blast off the bat of former Oriole Nelson Cruz. With the Orioles already down 4-1, and Gonzalez clearly...

Dylan Bundy is down in Double-A Bowie trying to find his footing after undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2013. The 22-year-old broke into the big leagues at 19 in 2012, but has struggled to regain his top-prospect form since.His last start on Friday is startling in the box score (2+ IP, 6 R, 8 H, 2 SO). Numbers, however, do not tell the whole story, as the Baltimore Orioles were...

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 […]
