Jeremy Guthrie Skipped his normal turn in the rotation due to shoulder stiffness.

Tommy Hunter His ERA with the Orioles is over 6 and he's striking out just 2 per 9 innings.  Did have one good start this week, but quickly followed it up by getting hammered in Anaheim.

Brian Matusz As Eat More Esskay pointed out, Brian entered yesterday's game with an 8.63 ERA and still managed to leave the game with a higher ERA than he started.

Jo-Jo Reyes 5 innings pitched.  5 earned runs.  Orioles lose.

Alfredo Simon Approximately 5 innings pitched.  5 earned runs.  Orioles lose again.

Brad Bergesen Nearly 5 innings of relief with just 1 earned run.  That'll play.

Jason Berken Suffering from some sort of elbow injury, although it doesn't appear to be anything serious.


Willie Eyre Allowed his first two runs as an Oriole on Friday, but recovered with a scoreless inning on Sunday.

Mike Gonzalez Has pitched well of late.  This week:  2 innings pitched, no runs, 3 strikeouts.

Kevin Gregg The usual.


Chris Jakubauskas Allowed his first run in the month of August, but pitched alright beyond that.

Jim Johnson Three huge scoreless innings in relief on Saturday, but the Orioles lost the game anyways.


Troy Patton Got dinged a bit by Oakland, but recovered with 2 less eventful innings.


Robert Andino Had a hit in every game he played in over the week.  Has good career numbers against Minnesota, so might be looking at a better week.


Josh Bell Back to Norfolk because he can't play defense and really can't hit.

Blake Davis Played absolutely brutal defense at 3B in yesterday's game.

Vladimir Guerrero Just ask AMD how great Vlad and his batting average are for the team.  He'll fight you!


J.J. Hardy Didn't homer this week, but continues to hit the ball well.

Adam Jones His one XBH this week left the park.  Hit the ball pretty well, but his defense left something to be desired.....

Nick Markakis Solid week at the plate has his OBP up to .342 and the OPS to .750.


Felix Pie Watching him out in LF yesterday was pathetic.

Nolan Reimold Lollygagged at the plate and in the field.  Really wish we had a better option.


Mark Reynolds Took his talents to 1B and actually played some halfway decent defense.  Now the team has an even bigger hole at 3B (if you could even imagine that given Reynolds' awful, awful defense at that position).  Might have to sit after an injury sustained in a collision at 1B.  146 soul-killing strikeouts.

Craig Tatum Really can't hit.

Matt Wieters Looked much better at the plate during the Angels series.
