Birds Up, O's Down for September 14th - 19th

Who's hot and who's not for your Baltimore Orioles:


Zach Britton Absolutely brilliant start versus the Angels. Over 7 innings, Zach allowed just 1 run on 3 hits while striking out 7 batters. That's the Britton we all remember from earlier in the season!

Jeremy Guthrie Guts got two starts this week and recorded wins in both (he's now on a three-start winning streak). He was somewhat more hittable against Boston than he was in Tampa, but he was (for the most part) effective in both starts.

Tommy Hunter Notched his best start since coming over to the Orioles in the Koji Uehara trade. Went 7 innings and was tagged with 7 hits, but did not allow a run.


Brian Matusz Sigh.

Alfredo Simon Knocked around by the Angels, allowing 6 earned runs over 5 innings (including three home runs).


Rick VandenHurk Did not pitch. Gets the start in tonight's game.

Jeremy Accardo Made it through one clean inning against LA before getting mauled last night in Boston.

Brad Bergesen Struggled in two straight relief appearances.

Jason Berken A bit wild last night, but was fairly effective over two relief appearances.


Willie Eyre Only 1.1 innings of relief, but at least it was scoreless.

Kevin Gregg He's absolutely horrible.

Chris Jakubauskas Blasted for 5 runs in the second game of yesterday's double-header. Just a bad pitching game all around.

Jim Johnson Allowed a run this week, but shook it off and got the save in the first game of the double-header.


Troy Patton Followed up his first win by allowing a run in less than an inning of relief.

Zach Phillips Has yet to allow a run during his short tenure on the Baltimore staff.


Clay Rapada Even creepy teeth allowed a run yesterday.

Jo-Jo Reyes Also pretty horrible. Ex-Blue Jays seem to have a history of not pitching well in Baltimore.

Pedro Strop Also has not allowed a run during his short tenure on the Baltimore staff.


Ryan Adams Getting fewer and fewer appearances as Andino improves.

Robert Andino Nothing special, but he's showing that he can handle the everyday duties at 2B. Just set a career high in home runs (4).


Matt Angle Not hitting much, but stealing bases and taking walks. Needs to improve at the plate, but maybe that will come as he gets more playing time.

Josh Bell Not good at baseball. Continues to litter his limited playing time with a wellspring of strikeouts.


Chris Davis Got his OPS up to a slightly more respectable level this week.

Pedro Florimon 5 ABs and 4 soul-crushing strikeouts.


Jake Fox Hardly played.


Vladimir Guerrero Best hitter on the team! I mean...look at his batting average!

J.J. Hardy Would love to see him top 30 home runs this year.

Kyle Hudson Stinks.


Adam Jones DNP for most of the week due to a thumb injury.

Nick Markakis It is sorta painful to watch him because you KNOW he COULD be good and probably could hit for power if he actually lifted weights every once in a while.

Nolan Reimold Couple of nice games this week. Added three home runs.


Mark Reynolds Closing in on 40 home runs. 182 soul-crushing strikeouts.

Craig Tatum Maximum Tater: can't hit or play much in the way of defense.

Matt Wieters Hitting like a champ.
