Wei-Yin Chen Upnew_medium Giving up lots of hits, but has pitched more than well enough to win in his last two starts. Allowed 4 ER in 13.2 IP.
Scott Feldman Pretty brilliant earlier in the week vs. Kansas City, but came back to earth on Saturday night vs. Boston. Six ER over 13 IP and a 1:1 K/BB ratio.
Miguel Gonzalez Downnew_medium Easily his worst start of the season. Season 6 ER in just 4.2 IP.
Jason Hammel Downnew_medium Allowed 3 ER in both of his starts this week, which isn't horrible, but he's allowing far too many base runners. The O's have lost 9 of his last 10 starts.
Chris Tillman Upnew_medium Still #stafface-ing around.
Jairo Asencio Downnew_medium Welp, didn't last long with the big club.
Tommy Hunter A week of scoreless appearances is just what Hunter needed after allowed ER in his previous 3 efforts.
Jim Johnson Not much needed from your closer when you aren't winning lots of games.
Brian Matusz Upnew_medium Scoreless in his last 10 appearances.
T.J. McFarland Just your standard mop-up guy.
Darren O'Day Like JJ, he didn't get much of a chance to pitch with the O's not winning either series.
Troy Patton Wasn't great on Saturday night, but nobody on the pitching staff was.
Francisco Rodriguez Welcome to Baltimore.
Taylor Teagarden Not much going on here.
Matt Wieters Pretty average week at the plate, but did it look to anyone else that he dropped two opportunities to throw out base-stealers on Saturday? Or was that just me?
Alexi Casilla Hardly even saw the lineup this week.
Chris Davis Downnew_medium The post-ASG slump has hit Crush Davis pretty hard. Just a .192 week - no homers. Looking pretty lost at the plate right now.
Ryan Flaherty See Casilla, Alexi
J.J. Hardy Downnew_medium Post-ASG slump also appears to have hit Hardy. He was slightly better than Davis, however, as he had .222 week with 2 homers.
Manny Machado Downnew_medium Two of his three hits went for home runs.
Brian Roberts Is it sad he was the only infielder on the team to hit above .250 this week?
Danny Valencia Downnew_medium Demoted to AAA
L.J. Hoes Recalled to the big club. Can he stick?
Adam Jones Upnew_medium One of the few in the lineup to hit successfully post-ASG. He included at least one of each variety hit within his 9 total (1 2B, 1 3B, 2 HR).
Nick Markakis This one is tough. Nicky had 11 hits in 28 ABs (a .393 BA) and 3 walks, but did not have a single XBH.
Nate McLouth Upnew_medium Pretty consistent week included 4 XBH (7 hits overall) and 3 walks.
Henry Urrutia Upnew_medium He's been pretty good since his call-up. Can he continue?
