Week 12 Birds Up, O's Down (17 - 23 June)

Tea slugs the first of two homers - USA TODAY Sports

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

Rotation
Jake Arrieta Downnew_medium Got one start in place of a sick Hammel and didn't make it through 5 innings. Ended up right back on the bus to Norfolk.
Zach Britton http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png After a number of decent starts at AAA, Britton got the call to replace Kevin Gausman in the rotation. He actually held his own through 5+ innings, although he walked 3 and struck out just 1. He did, however, earn another start and is the likely guy for tonight's game.
Freddy Garcia Downnew_medium Pretty sure this experiment is over. Clear that the O's could use some help in the rotation.
Miguel Gonzalez Upnew_medium Quality start, O's lose. MiGo has turned in a QS in all four June starts so far, but the O's couldn't win this one. Three ER on three hits over 7.1 innings.
Jason Hammel http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png A decent effort of 4 ER on 4 hits though 6 innings. Seven strikeouts (to one walk) was a positive sign, but the two homers allowed wasn't.
Chris Tillman http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Shortest start in the month of June still resulted in a win. Tillman went 5 innings, allowing 3 ER on 7 hits. Like most Tillman starts, it was inefficient, but it was clear that he didn't have his best stuff from the beginning.
Bullpen
Tommy Hunter Downnew_medium TGB
Jim Johnson http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png It's usually a sign of a bad week when your closer gets just 1 inning of work.
Brian Matusz Downnew_medium He's been pretty terrible for the entire month of June.
T.J. McFarland Downnew_medium Not one of his best outings. Got an extended outing thanks to a poor Garcia start, but he immediately allowed inherited runners to score before giving up a number of additional runs himself.
Darren O'Day Downnew_medium Allowed his first runs since the beginning of May. Can't honestly say he looked as sharp as he normally does.
Troy Patton Upnew_medium Only member of the bullpen to pitch more than 1 inning and not allow any runs. On a solid run after a couple of abysmal weeks.
Pedro Strop Downnew_medium One has to imagine he's pitching his way off of the big club.
Catchers
Taylor Teagarden Upnew_medium Two hits this week and both were homers. Tea for two! He even threw out a would-be base stealer for good measure.
Matt Wieters Downnew_medium Watching him swing the bat is getting maddeningly frustrating.
Infielders
Alexi Casilla http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Saw action simply as a defensive replacement.
Chris Davis Upnew_medium Continued his insane run with an additional 4 homers (only had 8 hits this week) and 10 RBI. Six of his 8 hits went for extra bases.
Ryan Flaherty Upnew_medium He actually was really good at the plate this week. He's got a 5 game hitting streak going and blasted three homers.
J.J. Hardy Upnew_medium Hardy had a solid week as well, going 7-23 (.307) with 2 homers.
Travis Ishikawa Downnew_medium Likely just here to spell Davis at first from time to time, but it's hard to imagine him hanging around once Betemit/Roberts returns.
Manny Machado http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Pretty average week for him at the plate, although he took his first walk since the beginning of June. Commited his 5th error on the year and now has as many errors as homers.
Danny Valencia http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png 0-3
Outfielders
Chris Dickerson http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Two hits on the week and both came in the same game.
Adam Jones Downnew_medium Okay in the Detroit series, but only 2 hits and 4 Ks against Toronto.
Nick Markakis Downnew_medium Although he picked up two doubles in yesterday's game, Nick struggled through the week, picking up just 5 hits in 22 ABs (good for a .227 BA).
Nate McLouth Upnew_medium Struggled a bit in early June, but had a resurgence last week with a 9-26 performance at the plate.
Disabled List
Wilson Betemit No further updates.
Wei-Yin Chen He should be starting a rehab assignment this weekend, which would be huge for a rotation starting AAA guys and Freddy Garcia with regularity.
Steve Johnson Started throwing again.
Nolan Reimold Continuing his rehab assignment
Brian Roberts Good news! Expected to start a rehab assignment tomorrow!
