Birds Up, O's Down for May 9-15


Jake Arrieta

Two starts this week with a nearly identical line.  Allowed just 2 ER in 6 innings during both outings to boost his record to a team-best 5-1.  Really bringing the gas now....hit 97 on the gun several times.

Brad Bergesen Absolutely brilliant in his one start this week.  Pitched a CG shutout against Tampa, allowing just 4 hits.

Zach Britton

If you thought Bergesen's start was good, look to Britton for one even better.  Pitched a "CG" shutout against Seattle, allowing just 3 hits while striking out 5 and walking none.  Offense failed him that day, but they did manage to win in extras as to not waste a brilliant effort.

Justin Duchscherer

Pitching simulated games these days.


Jeremy Guthrie

Guts quality start, O's lose.....take 907234092721.  Allowed just 3 runs over a complete 8 innings in Tampa this week, but still took the loss.  Record has now dropped to 1-6.  Per Britt's twitter, the Orioles have not scored a run for Guthrie while he's in the game in his last 5 starts.

Brian Matusz

Rehabbing in Frederick!


Chris Tillman

Avoids another Mr. Yuck with a solid start vs. Seattle this week.  This is Seattle, of course, so you can't get too excited, but 3 hits and run allowed over 6 innings is definitely a step in the right direction.





Jeremy Accardo

Still picked up a win after nearly giving up the game to Seattle.  Pitched two innings a coughed up a run, but staved off further damage and the O's ended up winning.  Now has 12 BBs and 10 Ks.

Jason Berken

Seems to be allowing runners to score in most outings these days.

Mike Gonzalez

Receiving an up arrow seemed to go straight to his head.  Followed up a solid week with a blown save (where he allowed 3 hits and 2 runs in less than an inning) and a poor outing yesterday.


Kevin Gregg

Blew one save this week, but followed up with two decent outings (picked up a save in one of the two).

Jim Johnson

Nearly lost the game after Zach Britton's gem, but the offense came through.  Solid throughout the rest of the week, however.

Clay Rapada

In for just one batter this week and did not get that guy out.

Koji Uehara

Three solid appearances this week.


Robert Andino

Role significantly diminished with Hardy's return.  Went 2 for 5 this week including a 2 for 2 in the Orioles'  2-1 extra innings victory.

Jake Fox

Did in fact hit a home run this week, although not much else.

Vladimir Guerrero

Just doing his thing.  Average is up to .285 and the OPS to .727.

J.J. Hardy

Came back this week with a bang.  Ten hits this week including 2 home runs (one being a grand slam) and 7 RBI.  Also playing some stellar defense.


Cesar Izturis

If you blinked during either of the two games in which he saw "action," you probably didn't  see him at all.  Not that those of us who didn't blink saw him either...

Adam Jones

Just on fire this week, as if to say "thanks for trading me, Seattle."


Derrek Lee

Had a hit in almost every game this week, but it would appear as though he'd like to fight Reynolds for K-master of the Orioles.

Nick Markakis

Trending up.  Played in 5 games this week and had 2 or more hits in 3 of them.  Added a home run and stolen base this week as well.


Felix Pie

Couple of hits and an RBI in a handful of ABs this week.

Mark Reynolds

We were promised bombs and finally got one.  K Tracker: 40

Brian Roberts

Hit better in the Tampa series, but that isn't saying much.  Hopefully he starts to turn this around.

Luke Scott

Suffering from a torn (or partially torn) labrum, otherwise known as the dreaded fabrum bear.  Hitting has seemed to reflect that injury, as he didn't do much of it this week.

Matt Wieters

Can't help but find it funny that people still try to run on him.  How many times do we have to tell you....there are no freakin' weapons of mass destruction he's got a cannon.  Oh, that and he hit the ball like a champ this week.
