Week 15 Birds Up, O's Down (July 8-14)

Rob Carr

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

Pitchers


Jairo Asencio

Downnew_medium

Got his first O's callup, and didn't fare so well. The double in his first appearance was followed by 2 Ks, but his outing Saturday was, well, yeesh.

Wei-Yin Chen

Upnew_medium

Picked up right where he left off. Chen went 7.0 IP, allowed just 1 run on 3 hits, and gave O's fans a reason to hope in the second half of the season.

Scott Feldman

Icon_dash_medium

As good as he was Sunday (7.1 IP, 3 ER, 7 K.1BB), that's how bad he was Monday (5.1 IP, 7 ER with 2 HBP).

Miguel Gonzalez

Upnew_medium

One great start this week, with 6.2 IP and just 1 ER allowed against the heavy hitters for Texas.

Jason Hammel

Downnew_medium

He was horrendous on Saturday (6.0 IP with 6 ER ad 10 hits). Zach Britton's clunker of a start in AAA on Sunday may have bought him some time, but the clock has to be ticking.

Tommy Hunter

Icon_dash_medium

Good against Texas (just 1 hit in 30 IP over two games), not so good against Toronto (3 R, 6 H, 0 K in 2.0 IP over 2 games).

Jim Johnson

Upnew_medium

His innings aren't as clean as we'd like, but a 1-pitch save Saturday, a relatively easy save Sunday and a third while working around 3 hits in Texas is pretty good work.

Brian Matusz

Upnew_medium

Looked good in 2 games against Texas, not so good in his lone appearance against Toronto.

T.J. McFarland

Upnew_medium

Two appearances, 2.0 IP, just 1 hit. Seems to be finding his way after a detour in June.

Darren O'Day

Upnew_medium

Two good appearances balance out the one in Texas that wasn't.

Troy Patton

Downnew_medium

Didn't get the job down in his first two appearances this week. Saturday's clean inning against Toronto was needed.

Chris Tillman

Upnew_medium

He's an All-Star, and won a start he probably shouldn't have on Friday. The 5K/1BB split was nice to see. But those pitch counts, Chris...

Josh Stinson

Bus_medium

He got called up, he got sent down, and never appeared in a game. Hope you enjoyed the per diem, Josh.

Zach Britton

Bus_medium

Sent down after a start Tuesday, in which he gave up 5 ER in 5.0 IP. He followed that up by getting shelled in AAA on Sunday.

Kevin Gausman

Bus_medium

Appeared in one game, went 1.2 IP and gave up 2 ER on 2 H and 2 BB with 0 K. Not gonna cut it, Donut Boy. Back to AAA with you.

Catchers


Taylor Teagarden

Icon_dash_medium

Didn't appear in a game, since Matt Wieters will be getting four days off this week.

Matt Wieters

Downnew_medium

Another week, another sub-.300 OBP. The home run was nice, but a .227 BA for the week is becoming far too common.

Infielders


Alexi Casilla

Downnew_medium

Went 0-2 in his only action this week.

Chris Davis

Upnew_medium

Let's see, he homered in four straight games. Yeah, that's an up arrow. Even with the CS on Saturday.

Ryan Flaherty

Icon_dash_medium

Appeared in two games, with 1 AB in each. Went 1-for-2.

J.J. Hardy

Icon_dash_medium

Went 5-for-20 going into Sunday's game, but drove in 5 runs. He's keeping that .250 BA with pop streak going.

Manny Machado

Upnew_medium

Hit 8 for 26 going into Sunday, with a triple and HR, but some bad, bad strikeouts. Still, he's an All-Star at age 21. How cool is that?

Brian Roberts

Icon_dash_medium

He's basically JJ Hardy, as he also had 5 RBI and a HR around a .250 AVG for the week. Is he a lead-off hitter or a #9 hitter, a 2B or a DH? So many questions...

Outfielders


Chris Dickerson

Downnew_medium

Want to know why Dickerson isn't playing? Go back and watch his ABs this week. On Sunday, he struck out twice on fastballs above the neck. He's just lost at the plate right now.

Adam Jones

Upnew_medium

A marked improvement at the plate this week, with multiple walks (he even had 2 in 1 game on Saturday!). And that throw...

Nick Markakis

Downnew_medium

Horrible week at the plate with a 4-for-23 ending Saturday.

Nate McLouth

Downnew_medium

Pretty bad week for The

Highlander. Just 5-for-23 ending Saturday.

Nolan Reimold

Downnew_medium

Sub-.200 AVG, sub-.200 OBP. Expect Henry Urrutia here about 5 minutes after the All-Star Break ends.

Disabled List


Wilson Betemit

Red-cross-icon_medium

Roch Kubatko says he’s not even close to coming back.

Steve Pearce

Red-cross-icon_medium

Buck Showalter says Pearce is down to just "one sore wrist" and may start a rehab assignment soon.

Steve Johnson

Red-cross-icon_medium

He’s started throwing and may

be ready for a rehab assignment as soon as this week.
