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



Zach Britton Followed up a great start with a much less effective outing. Got the "win," but that doesn't cover the fact he labored through 5 innings while allowing 5 earned runs (and walking 4 batters).


Jeremy Guthrie Not the most solid of outings Saturday in Detroit, but it got the job done. He's been pitching better of late.


Tommy Hunter See above (although Detroit is arguably a more fierce lineup than Boston right now).


Brian Matusz Sigh. ERA up again after his most recent start. But its okay guys! Buck says he's going to go home this offseason and magically figure it all out.

Alfredo Simon Although the team lost the game, Simon pitched a solid 8 innings, allowing 3 earned runs on 6 hits (just 1 walk).

Rick VandenHurk Not making much of a case to be a starter next year.


Jeremy Accardo Pitched just one inning this week.

Brad Bergesen Looking increasingly less effective as the season comes to a close. Has been tagged for multiple earned runs in his last several appearances.


Jason Berken Pitched two solid innings in one appearance.


Willie Eyre Looked solid for a few outings before giving up the winning run on Friday in Detroit.


Kevin Gregg His streak of innings without allowing a run now stands at three.

Chris Jakubauskas He's been much less effective lately as well.

Jim Johnson Mr. Reliable just doing what he does. Three innings....just one hit.


Troy Patton Did not pitch.


Zach Phillips Saw one batter and did not get him out.

Clay Rapada Looked pretty sharp in that suit.....almost like he'd worn it before. Also looks like Buck has finally figured out what situations to use him in.

Jo-Jo Reyes Picked up 3 innings of solid scoreless relief against Boston.

Pedro Strop Allowed his first run as an Oriole, but bounced back.


Ryan Adams DNP. Sports hernia has ended his season.

Robert Andino He isn't the best, but continues to show himself as a suitable fill-in while Brian Roberts is on the shelf.

Matt Angle Getting the up this week for his leadoff homer off of Verlander.


Josh Bell Hardly played.


Chris Davis Continues to show flashes of decency, but still maintaining an a sub-.700 OPS.

Pedro Florimon Cheers for his first career RBI.


Jake Fox Seeing very limited action, but did go 2 for 2 in his one appearance.


Vladimir Guerrero Getting 8 million to hit singles.

J.J. Hardy One homer shy of 30 for the year.

Kyle Hudson Hitless for the week.


Adam Jones A number of hits this week, but the OPS continues to drop towards .750


Nick Markakis OPS at a season-high of .758 (as is the OBP with .351).

Nolan Reimold Solid week at the plate for Moldy. Average still at a meager .246, but OPS closing in on .800

Mark Reynolds Up to 37 home runs and has his OPS back over .800....will he get to 40 bombs this year? Time's running out....

Craig Tatum Maximum Tater: OPS down to a sub-Izturian .475


Matt Wieters Capping off a great end to the season.
