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

Rotation

Zach Britton Simply magnificent 8 innings against Chicago yielded a career-high 10 strikeouts. Scattered 7 hits, but only 1 earned run.

Wei-Yin Chen Like Britton, very solid against Chicago. Had some late struggles against New York more recently, but that's not all on him.

Miguel Gonzalez Seven innings, no runs allowed. Awesome.

Joe Saunders
Gets a pass on the first start after taking a no-hitter into the 6th yesterday.

Chris Tillman Absolutely dominated Chicago for 7 innings earlier in the week, but was lifted after 3 innings on Sunday due to elbow troubles. Will get an MRI this week. Ruh-roh.
Bullpen

Luis Ayala Got 3 innings of work and allowed just 1 hit (plus 3 strikeouts).

Kevin Gregg He wasn't good, but let's be honest....did that surprise you?

Tommy Hunter DNP

Jim Johnson Gave up the hit that cost Strop 2 earned runs, but got the saves anyways.

Steve Johnson One scoreless inning.

Brian Matusz Feels strange putting him in the "bullpen" section. In any case, homer allowed to Curtis Granderson was the only blemish on his 4 innings of relief.

Darren O'Day Three innings of scoreless (and hitless) relief.

Zach Phillips DNP

Pedro Strop Some uncharacteristic struggles for Strop this week.

Randy Wolf Joined the team and immediately jumped in as long relief for the injured Tillman. Over 3+ innings, allowed a run and got a win.
Lineup

Robert Andino Nothing exciting, but a fairly solid near-.300 week. Added a double, an RBI, and three walks.

Xavier Avery DNP

Wilson Betemit Activated from the DL and got just one AB.

Chris Davis Kinda funny that the Opening Day starter on what was considered a sub-par lineup isn't even playing daily for a team pushing toward the playoffs.

Ryan Flaherty Never got to the plate, but did get on the field.

Lew Ford Hit two homers right at the beginning of the week and didn't have a hit afterwards. The homers, however, were rather big (especially the first one). Added 2 BBs.

J.J. Hardy Hit just .212 for the week, although did have some extra base hits. Error with the bases loaded contributed to the O's losing a winnable game against New York.

Adam Jones Not one of his better weeks at the plate, but congrats on 100 homers!

Manny Machado Has cooled off after the big start, but still showing he can produce some hits at the bottom of the lineup.

Nick Markakis Hasn't hit a homer recently, but had another impressive week at the top of the Oriole lineup. Got his average over .300 with an 11-29 week, including 3 doubles, 7 RBI, and 5 walks.

Nate McLouth Pretty decent week at the plate.

Omar Quintanilla Has seemingly faded into anonymity.

Mark Reynolds Boom.

Taylor Teagarden Had his best game as an Oriole this week. Guy hardly hits, but when he does, they go for extra bases.

Steve Tolleson DNP

Matt Wieters Kind of up and down, but he hit in every game he played in last week (plus a homer).
