Week 14 Birds Up, O's Down (July 2 - 8)

Small request: pitch every game like that last start. Thanks. (Photo by Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images)

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

Rotation

Jake Arrieta Jake has now failed to get through the fourth inning in back-to-back starts. In that stretch, he's allowed 11 earned runs. Now finds himself at AAA for the time being.

Wei-Yin Chen Took a perfect game a pretty long way in Seattle, but then got rocked for 5 earned in 4 innings against Anaheim.

Miguel Gonzalez
Very solid in his first start as an Oriole. Pitched 7 innings and allowed just one earned run to help the O's win their only game of the series.

Jason Hammel Yeah, he gave up 7 earned runs over 13.1 innings, but pitched well enough in both of his starts to earn the win. Unfortunately, he got no backing from the offense and got tagged with losses in both outings.

Chris Tillman
Wait....are we absolutely SURE this was Chris Tillman who pitched that game? Possibly an actor taking his place?
Bullpen

Luis Ayala Definitely his worst week as an Oriole. Earned runs allowed in both outings. Stolen base allowed to Albert Pujols was sort of amusing too.

Dana Eveland One scoreless inning.

Kevin Gregg Two scoreless innings.

Jim Johnson Tacked on three more saves in less than 3 innings of work.

Matt Lindstrom Nothing much to see here.

Darren O'Day Allowed a home run, but the O's won anyways.

Troy Patton ERA was nearing the 3.00 mark when he was tagged for 2 solo home runs against Seattle.

Pedro Strop Had one hiccup (blown save vs. Seattle), but has since made two scoreless appearances.
Lineup

Robert Andino Went 6 for 26 (.231), but did have a home run in a close game against Seattle.

Xavier Avery Five for eighteen with a double and three walks isn't such a bad week at the plate. Also picked up a stolen base.

Wilson Betemit I make him the BUOD player of the week and he responds with a 2 for 23 week. Lucky 13, I guess.

Chris Davis Currently battling a neck injury, but still managed a .263 week at the plate. Also had a homer and 5 RBI.

Ryan Flaherty ESPN now lists Flaherty as OF.....in any case, he went 3 for 6 with a homer, which is great considering he never plays.

J.J. Hardy Yikes......just 2 for 27 this week, although he did take 3 walks.

Adam Jones Continuing the theme of no offense, Jones went just 4 for 28. Added his 20th homer of the year.

Joe Mahoney Pretty sure the O's just called him up so I had to make a whole new table for BUODs.

Ronny Paulino He doesn't really play much....although he doesn't hit when he does actually play.

Steve Pearce Pretty limited as far as playing time is concerned, but when he got to hit, he was 3 for 9 with a homer, 3 RBI, and a BB.

Mark Reynolds Got hit on the hand with a pitch, so maybe that affected his play at the plate afterwards. Then again, he wasn't hitting even before that.....

Jim Thome First full week as an Oriole ends at 5 for 18 with three walks. That's fine and all, but you'd love to see some more power....

Steve Tolleson This guy again?

Matt Wieters Pretty "eh" as far as the average is concerned (.231), but a homer, 6 RBI, and 2 walks are nice
