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


Jake Arrieta Theoretically supposed to pitch from the pen, but forced to start when Matusz decided to display a real nose for the ball. Ended up pitching a gem. Way to rebound, Jake.

Wei-Yin Chen Yea, he gave up 4 runs to Pittsburgh, but followed up with 7 shutout innings in Atlanta yesterday afternoon. He's now 7-2 with a 3.36 ERA.

Jason Hammel Knee soreness? Maybe. Healthy enough for a one-hitter and a few good bunts, however. Nicely done.

Tommy Hunter Got massive run support and still made things interesting.


Brian Matusz Buck probably should have pulled him after 5. Looked decent until that 6th inning got the best of him.

Luis Ayala Throwing a ton of strikes and getting rewarded with 3 IP, 2 hits, and 5 Ks. Can't ask for much more.


Dana Eveland Hanging around as the long man in the bullpen and performing that duty relatively well.

Kevin Gregg Hmmph.

Jim Johnson Two appearances, two saves. No big deal.


Darren O'Day Not much to see here.

Troy Patton Continues to pitch admirably out of the pen with another 2.2 innings of scoreless relief.


Pedro Strop Nothing to report.


Robert Andino Playing time may suffer with the return of Roberts to the lineup. Although, he's not doing much to help himself.

Wilson Betemit Had one of his better weeks as an O (6 for 15 at the plate with 2 doubles, a home run, and 2 BBs)


Endy Chavez Back to the DL. While Endy isn't that good, it should be noted that with his absence, the O's have just one natural outfielder on the roster (Jones).

Chris Davis Got to play a little OF with the O's playing at an NL park. Has seen time at RF, 1B, 3B, DH, and P this season. Oh, he had a couple of homers this week too.


Ryan Flaherty Really just a defensive replacement this week.

J.J. Hardy Rebounded from 3 for 29 with an 8 for 26 week.


Nick Johnson Continues to get zero playing time.

Adam Jones Hit .429 (with a homer) and had as many walks as strikeouts.


Ronny Paulino Played in only one game.

Steve Pearce Outstanding week as the semi-regular LF. Went 8 for 21 with a homer and seven RBI (including a career-high 5 in one game). Also added 2 walks.

Mark Reynolds Seems to be seeing the ball much better. Nine for 21 with 3 doubles, 2 homers, 7 RBI, and 2 walks. OBP is up to .363 for the year.

Brian Roberts Kicked off his 2012 season with a .318 (7 for 22), 4 RBI effort. Glad to have you back, B-Rob.


Steve Tolleson Returned to Norfolk with Roberts activated from the DL, but turned around and came right back with Chavez out.


Matt Wieters Four for 18 this week, but did have 5 RBI and 4 BBs.
