Week 13 Birds Up, O's Down (24 - 30 June)

Ryan Flaherty must have been worried about Roberts returning to action. - Jonathan Ernst

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

Rotation
Zach Britton http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Overall, his numbers are okay, but the 1:1 K/BB ratio is living on the edge. His inability to get through at least 6 innings is frustrating as well. He did, however, post a 3.38/3.72 ERA/FIP for the week, which isn't bad. Three to four ER in one usually means you left your team in a decent spot to win the game.
Miguel Gonzalez Upnew_medium Had a rough first two innings, but really settled down and was money for the remaining four innings. Has allowed 3 ER in each of his last three starts.
Jason Hammel Upnew_medium Seems like we're starting to see a bit more of the Hammel we saw last year, which is great. Wednesday's start was among his best in the first half of the season (4 hits, 2 ER, 2 BB, 5 K over 7 innings).
T.J. McFarland http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png You can make the case for whatever arrow you want here. Going with even since the whole point of him "starting" was due to the Yankees current struggles against LHP and having a rested Gausman in the pen behind him. Gave up 3 ER in 2.2 innings, but he wasn't going past 3-4 innings anyway. Expectations were low to begin with.
Chris Tillman Upnew_medium #stafface
Bullpen
Kevin Gausman Upnew_medium Came in to relief TJ McFarland and was awesome. Four IP, 3 hits, and 4 Ks.
Tommy Hunter Upnew_medium Back to solid relief after a week of homers. Saw almost 5 innings of action and allowed just 1 hit, striking out 5.
Jim Johnson Downnew_medium Blown save added to Johnson's struggles this week. He actually came out with more saves than blown saves, but by no means was this a good week for JJ.
Jair Jurrjens http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Pitched a couple of innings from the bullpen before getting DFA'd to allow B-Rob back on the roster.
Brian Matusz http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Pretty clear that Buck and Co. also recognized his struggles this month and went back to pitching him in limited situations.
Darren O'Day Downnew_medium Allowed homers in back to back appearances for the first time this season.
Troy Patton http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Pretty limited action for both lefties in the pen.
Pedro Strop Downnew_medium Still not good.
Catchers
Taylor Teagarden http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Did not receive an AB this week.
Matt Wieters Upnew_medium A bit saddening that a 6-22 (.273) week is actually a good week for him. His week included two doubles, a homer, and 3 BB.
Infielders
Alexi Casilla Upnew_medium Pretty limited playing time, but he had a huge home run against the Indians that ultimately capped the win.
Chris Davis Upnew_medium "Only" a .250 BA for the week, but 4 of his 6 hits were homers and he totaled 10 RBI.
Ryan Flaherty Upnew_medium Flahrt can hit! Deal with it! Wait.....what? When did this happen?
J.J. Hardy http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Pretty average week. Only 1 XBH.
Travis Ishikawa http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png DFA'd
Manny Machado Upnew_medium Still on record doubles pace. #doublesmachine
Brian Roberts Upnew_medium Gets the up arrow this week simply for playing in a full game and not, to my knowledge, getting hurt.
Danny Valencia Downnew_medium He had a pretty good start, but he's cooled off rapidly.
Outfielders
Chris Dickerson Upnew_medium Didn't get much playing time, but made the most of it, including a 2-4 night against his former team.
Adam Jones Downnew_medium Struggled through the week and did not record an XBH.
Nick Markakis Downnew_medium Both Markakis and Jones posted 6 hits in almost 30 ABs, although Nicky had a homer and a solid defensive play with the bases loaded.
Nate McLouth http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Yes, he too had 6 hits in 27 ABs, but he had two homers plus an OF assist.
Disabled List
Wilson Betemit No updates.
Wei-Yin Chen Pitched a rehab start with AA Bowie and appears on track to return this week.
Steve Johnson He's resumed throwing and could be in line for rehab soon enough.
Steve Pearce Still out with a wrist injury. Has yet to resume baseball activity.
Nolan Reimold He's expected to be activated today or tomorrow. Good news? Who gets sent down?
