Week 21 Birds Up, O's Down (26 August - 1 September)

Feldman deserves to smile after posting his best start as an Oriole - Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

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

Rotation
Wei-Yin Chen Downnew_medium Ouch.  Bad week.
Scott Feldman Upnew_medium Tossed probably his best start as an Oriole (7 innings, 1 ER, 1 BB, and 5 Ks), but still took the loss.
Miguel Gonzalez Downnew_medium Got some extra rest so that he could start the first game of the Yankees series.  Oops...that one backfired.
Bud Norris Upnew_medium Dropped two consecutive solid road starts.  Yesterday's outing was the best of the two:  1 ER, 1 BB, 8 Ks.
Chris Tillman Upnew_medium Staff ace.
Bullpen
Zach Britton http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png DNP
Kevin Gausman Upnew_medium Recalled to add some bullpen depth and contributed three solid (and scoreless) innings.
Tommy Hunter http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Pitching almost every game, it would seem.  Generally achieving success, although he did pick up a loss in a close game last week.
Jim Johnson http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Two straight saves.  New streak!
Brian Matusz http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Not really doing much to support his "I want to be a starter" campaign.
T.J. McFarland http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png You can basically put the same comment here every week.
Darren O'Day http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Kind of bad in pressure situations this year, eh?
Troy Patton Downnew_medium Quite possibly his worst week of the season.  Needs to shape up if the O's want to continue fighting for a playoff spot.
Francisco Rodriguez http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Not the best numbers, but he did see over 4 innings worth of time.
Catchers
Steve Clevenger http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Could make his O's debut this week.
Chris Snyder http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png DNP
Matt Wieters http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Pretty sour month of August, but he's hit well in September over his short career.  That trend is off to a good start considering yesterday's game.
Infielders
Wilson Betemit http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Still hitless this year
Alexi Casilla http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Not much to say here, although he did take three walks.
Chris Davis Downnew_medium Just 5 hits over the week has his average below .300
J.J. Hardy Downnew_medium Like Davis, Hardy also added just 5 hits.
Manny Machado Upnew_medium Solid week for Manny included 9 hits (2 doubles, 1 homer).
Brian Roberts Downnew_medium Five hits.  (Although he had three walks, as well).
Danny Valencia Upnew_medium Pretty scorching .571 week for Valencia.
Outfielders
Adam Jones Downnew_medium Hmm....five hits.  I'm sensing a trend.
Nick Markakis Downnew_medium Yep, you guessed it:  5 hits.  OPS down to a very, very dismal .688
Nate McLouth Downnew_medium Five Three hits.  If not for the homers, the O's might not have scored at all this week.
Michael Morse Upnew_medium Had as many hits as McLouth in about a quarter of the ABs.  Now it's time to see some power.
