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


Jake Arrieta Popped for 4 runs against the Mets (which actually lowered his ERA), but rebounded with a very solid outing against the Nationals. In two starts vs. Washington this season, Arrieta has allowed 11 hits and 2 runs, while striking out 14.


Wei-Yin Chen Was not particularly sharp in Saturday's start vs. Washington. Of course, he was hurt a bit by the defensive combo of Betemit and Reynolds, but still allowed 6 hits and walked two over 5 innings.

Jason Hammel Dazzling start against Washington (5 hits and 1 unearned run) produced a career-high of 10 strikeouts.

Tommy Hunter Wouldn't be a Tommy Hunter start without a home run. Although he might get more starts since the O's recently released Jamie Moyer.

Brian Matusz Continues to struggle with consistency, efficiency.


Luis Ayala Threw a couple of innings.


Dana Eveland Pitched fine in an inning+, but will be placed on paternity leave.

Kevin Gregg Still on the roster.

Jim Johnson Three scoreless innings produced two saves.


Darren O'Day Just 1 IP this week.

Troy Patton Another solid week has his ERA down to 3.18

Pedro Strop Continuing to excel in the setup role.



Robert Andino Saw extremely limited playing time this week.

Wilson Betemit Another solid week, hitting-wise (.462 with a homer). Just keep him away from lefties....and the playing field.

Chris Davis Showing some versatility (well, forced versatility), but stuck in an 0 for 17 slump.


Ryan Flaherty Nothing new.

J.J. Hardy Just 3 for 24 at the plate and did not take a walk.


Nick Johnson Two for seven with two walks, but actually got a little playing time!

Adam Jones At 4 for 23, this was one of Adam's worst weeks at the plate. Line drive off of the foul pole on Saturday night was pretty cool though.


Ronny Paulino Played in only two games.

Steve Pearce Rather ugly 1 for 14 week, including a bases-loaded popup.

Mark Reynolds Kinda bad all around this week.


Brian Roberts Went 4 for 22, but walked 3 times and seems to be back working the counts again.


Steve Tolleson Saw limited action.

Matt Wieters Don't run on Matt Wieters.
