Fist bumps for Nick Markakis on a 10-22 week
Thearon W. Henderson
Zach Britton Upnew_medium Ended up with a no-decision, but he was outstanding in his recent start vs. Chicago. Best start of the year by far and the first time this season he's exceeded six innings.
Scott Feldman Upnew_medium Welp, passed his first O's test. Plus, he was born in Hawaii, so that's also nice.
Miguel Gonzalez Upnew_medium Walked pretty much everyone under the sun, but still managed to turn in a quality start. Of course, if he wasn't issuing free passes left and right, he probably could have made it further than 6 innings.
Jason Hammel Got two starts this week and pitched to varying degrees of success. During the first start, he seemed under control, but got torched by the long ball late. Stretched the success later in his second start, although inefficiency cost him a chance to pitch deeper into the game.
Chris Tillman Downnew_medium He never was very good against the Yankees....
Kevin Gausman Holding his own out of the pen, but I want to see him in the rotation!
Tommy Hunter Downnew_medium When Tommy Goes Boom, the O's lose.
Jim Johnson Downnew_medium Sure feels like he's blown a lot of saves lately....
Brian Matusz Surprising to see him get just one inning in a week.
T.J. McFarland Really not much to see here.
Darren O'Day Upnew_medium Gave up a few homers last week, but immediately went back to being the O's most consistent relief option.
Troy Patton Pretty limited action for both lefties in the pen.
Taylor Teagarden Downnew_medium Actually got into two games this week, but went just 1-5.
Matt Wieters Downnew_medium Pretty miserable week at the plate for O's catchers.
Alexi Casilla Had nearly as many hits as Matt Wieters this week - in just 3 ABs.
Chris Davis Downnew_medium Just three hits, although two were homers.
Ryan Flaherty Faded back to further obscurity with Roberts back in the lineup.
J.J. Hardy Downnew_medium Pretty miserable week at the plate for the O's infield....Hardy was 1-22.
Manny Machado Downnew_medium Hit another double, but was otherwise 4-24
Brian Roberts Downnew_medium As I was saying, miserable week for the infield: Roberts added a 2-19 effort.
Danny Valencia 0-3 before getting sent back to AAA
Chris Dickerson Downnew_medium 0-7 in extremely limited playing time
Adam Jones Did have the game-winning homer yesterday, but one had to assume BABIP was going to catch up to him.
Nick Markakis Upnew_medium Only Oriole with double-digit hits this week, although just 1 went for extra bases.
Nate McLouth Also saw some limited playing time with Reimold back and had four hits (3 doubles).
Nolan Reimold 3-11, but he's seeing his first MLB pitching in quite some time, so we'll wait another week or so to judge fully.
Disabled List
Wilson Betemit Continuing "baseball activities," but there's no timetable for his return.
Wei-Yin Chen Will be activated from the DL to start either Tuesday or Wednesday
Steve Clevenger Welcome to Baltimore?
