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

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

Rotation
Wei-Yin Chen http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png 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.
Bullpen
Tommy Hunter http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png 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 http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png You know your pen isn't faring well when even O'Day gets rattled.
Troy Patton http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Yet another reliever to to falter at some point over the week.
Francisco Rodriguez http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png 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.
Catchers
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.
Infielders
Alexi Casilla http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png 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 http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png 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.
Outfielders
Adam Jones http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png 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.
