Who's hot and who's not for the Baltimore Orioles:

Rotation

Jake Arrieta
Most recent start was an improvement (no walks, 3 ER over 7 innings), but still allowed 2 home runs.

Brad Bergesen
Torched for 6 runs (4 earned) by Boston, but followed up with a nice start against Anaheim, allowing 2 runs on 6 hits.

Jeremy Guthrie Two starts, 14 innings pitched, 5 earned runs, and only one win to show for it.  Pitched better than his line suggests in yesterday's game, as he wasn't getting many of the calls Tyler Chatwood received.

Alfredo Simon He's been the Orioles' best starter over the past two weeks.  No, seriously!  Gave up just 2 earned runs this week, but still took the loss thanks to a completely anemic showing from the offense.
Bullpen

Jason Berken
Appeared in three games, but only pitched 1 inning.  In two of three outs, he was brought in, gave up a hit, and was removed.

Mike Gonzalez
Wonder if any teams out there want some left-handed relief help....

Kevin Gregg
Every appearance is an adventure.

Mark Hendrickson
Did not record an out.

Chris Jakubauskas
Liked it much better when he would start, pitch 5 innings and give up 3 runs.

Jim Johnson
Solid as always.  Three innings, one hit, no runs.

Troy Patton
Curious as to why he didn't get more looks considering the other guys the O's have been trotting out there.

Koji Uehara
One inning, no runs.  Will he still be here following the deadline?

Mark Worrell Currently sporting an ERA of 36.00......need I say more?
Lineup

Robert Andino Three singles this week in eleven ABs

Matt Angle Did not have a hit in his short stay.  Returned to the minors after Luke came off of the disabled list.

Josh Bell
Nugget has two hits so far in his return to the bigs.

Blake Davis
When is Brian Roberts supposed to return?

J.J. Hardy Over halfway (14) to his career best in home runs (26 with Milwaukee).

Adam Jones Hit the ball very well for the second week in a row.  Added three home runs and 6 RBI.

Derrek Lee Added a triple and a home run this week, but little else.

Nick Markakis Struggled early in the week, but finished with a bang.

Felix Pie OPS is drifting down toward .500, but will probably get additional playing time with Luke Scott likely out for the season.

Nolan Reimold Getting some more playing time and needs to show he can play (otherwise he'll end up stapled to the bench again).

Mark Reynolds Fighting off Josh Bell for starts at 3B saying that he needs to be in the field to maintain the flow of the game.  This comes as a surprise to anyone who has watched him try to play defense.  In other news, finally getting some swings in the cleanup spot.  K Tracker: 110

Craig Tatum Grabbing some hits, throwing some runners out.

Matt Wieters Thought a lot of his swings over the weekend were pretty lazy.  Had a nice start to the week, but tailed off.  Maybe it was the heat.
