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

10-20 at the plate.  Not bad for an "old" man!

Wei-Yin Chen Just can't seem to make it through the seventh with any regularity.
Scott Feldman Upnew_medium Pretty rough start to his O's career, but he's allowed just 4 earned runs (2.25 ERA) in his last 12 innings.
Miguel Gonzalez Upnew_medium Had his quality start ruined by a blown save and an extra innings loss.  Steady as she goes after a couple of bad starts.
Bud Norris Downnew_medium Neither his start nor his relief appearance were very fulfilling.  Also suffering from some lower back soreness, but remains on track to make his next start.
Chris Tillman Upnew_medium Solid 6 inning start (lack of strikeouts noted), but foiled in his attempt to pick up a 15th win twice in a row.
Tommy Hunter Rocked early on in the week, but had three excellent appearances since then, including a 3 inning relief stint.
Jim Johnson Downnew_medium Fill in your own negative comment here.
Brian Matusz Downnew_medium Not a very solid week for the bullpen.
T.J. McFarland Downnew_medium Gives up a run and takes a loss during his first appearance in ten days.
Darren O'Day You know your pen isn't faring well when even O'Day gets rattled.
Troy Patton Yet another reliever to to falter at some point over the week.
Francisco Rodriguez Strained his hamstring and is hoping to avoid the disabled list.
Josh Stinson Upnew_medium Oddly enough, he was the only O's reliever to escape the week unscathed.  Naturally, he was sent back to the minors.
Taylor Teagarden Upnew_medium Surprisingly good in two appearances this week.  Nearly doubled his hit output for the season in just one week.
Matt Wieters Downnew_medium Crummy week that included just two hits, although both were homers.
Alexi Casilla 2-4 in one game (not including a pinch running appearance)
Chris Davis Upnew_medium Back to crushing and walking.  Three homers, 5 walks over a .409 week.
Ryan Flaherty Picked up a couple of starts at SS and was solid, if unspectacular.
J.J. Hardy Upnew_medium Back problems forced him out of the lineup, but he's expected to return early this week.
Manny Machado Upnew_medium Solid .300 week, although just 2 extra-base hits.
Brian Roberts Upnew_medium His range in the field has clearly declined, but he went a solid 10-20 at the dish with 6 RBI and 5 walks.  Hard to ask for more out of a guy who hasn't played much in quite some time.
Adam Jones Actually had a bit of a down week compared to his previous few.
Nick Markakis Downnew_medium It has been a month since last had an extra-base hit.
Nate McLouth Downnew_medium .091 at the plate this week.
Steve Pearce Downnew_medium Also .091 at the plate this week.
Henry Urrutia Downnew_medium Struggling, so he was returned to the minors.
