Week 7 Birds Up, O's Down (May 14 - 21)

Adam Jones, son.
Adam Jones, son.

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


Jake Arrieta Sparkling start on Friday in Washington. Allowed just 6 hits and 1 run while striking out 9 (in 7 innings).

Wei-Yin Chen Fairly solid start against the Yankees in game 2 of the series, but got absolutely shelled by the Nationals over the weekend. Lasted just 4.1 innings and allowed 6 runs, including a home run to Stephen Strasburg.

Jason Hammel Seems possible that the knee injury is still bother him. In both starts this week, failed to get beyond the 5th inning. Allowed 4 ER in each and didn't seem to have solid control.

Tommy Hunter Like Chen, started the week with a solid start before getting pounded in the second outing.

Brian Matusz Not the prettiest of starts, but it got the job done.

Luis Ayala Blew a lead in New York and coughed up a few hits with inherited runners in what turned out to be a pretty close game against Washington.


Dana Eveland Reasonable in the long relief role.

Kevin Gregg Actually seemed like he was heading in the right direction before yesterday's outing.

Jim Johnson Allowed a ninth inning homer to Ryan Zimmerman on Saturday against the Nationals, but still perfect in save opportunities.

Darren O'Day Over 4 innings of relief and allowed just 1 hit.


Troy Patton Somewhat inconsistent, but generally gets the job done. ER from last night's game came on a somewhat uncharacteristic defense fail from Wieters.

Pedro Strop Continues to pitch very well in the setup/fill-in closer role.

Xavier Avery Still searching for his first home run, but got on base in every game he played in over the past week.

Robert Andino Stuck in a bit of a slump and saw his average drop from .285 to .263


Wilson Betemit Like Andino, watched his BA drop a handful of points, but added a clutch home run in game one of the KC series.

Chris Davis Nine for twenty with a homer over the past 7 days. That'll do.


Luis Exposito Not likely to get much in the way of playing time, but hopefully he can add a hit or two when he does actually play.


Ryan Flaherty Saw extremely limited playing time over the past week. Did not reach base.


Bill Hall Didn't hit much, but got on base in 3 of his 4 games this past week via the walk.

J.J. Hardy Pretty solid clip for the week and had an extra base hit of all three varieties.


Nick Johnson Not awful for a bench player, but probably needs to hit more in order to stick around.

Adam Jones Currently knocking the crap out of the ball. Hope this continues.

Nick Markakis Hit multiple home the same week! No, really!

Steve Tolleson Two for six with a double in two games. Not much to see here.

Matt Wieters Slumping pretty hard as well as making some unusual defensive errors. Although, as O'sfan21 pointed out, his OPS just now dipped below .800 for the season
