Week 22 Birds Up, O's Down (2 - 8 September)

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

It's Danny Valencia
It's Danny Valencia
Rob Carr
Zach Britton Downnew_medium Couldn't even manage three innings during Wednesday's spot start.
Wei-Yin Chen Upnew_medium Back to Chen-sational after a few poor outings, although he still hasn't figured out how to get deep into ballgames.
Scott Feldman Upnew_medium You want to know who has been good lately?  Scott Feldman's been good.  Two earned runs in his last three starts (21 innings).
Kevin Gausman Downnew_medium Called upon to mop up Britton's poor start, but ended up giving the tied game right back to Cleveland.
Miguel Gonzalez Upnew_medium Couldn't beat the Yankees, but had better luck against the White Sox.  Much better luck.
Jason Hammel He's back, but in the pen for now.
Tommy Hunter Downnew_medium Getting a down arrow this week for Saturday's performance in Chicago.
Jim Johnson Three innings, just one hit allowed.  Only one save though.....
Steve Johnson Wouldn't have even known he was back on the team if I hadn't read the box score closely.
Brian Matusz One inning of scoreless relief.
T.J. McFarland Upnew_medium 3.2 innings without a hit allowed
Bud Norris Downnew_medium Should be on high alert in case somebody wants to put Hammel back in the rotation.
Darren O'Day Two scoreless innings of relief.
Troy Patton Apparently not much use for lefty specialists against Chicago or Cleveland
Francisco Rodriguez 1.2 innings of scoreless relief.
Josh Stinson One inning of scoreless relief.  I think I said that already....
Chris Tillman Downnew_medium Appeared determined to walk every batter possible, although he did limit the damage to just 4 runs.
Steve Clevenger I don't really see the point of having three catchers on the team, even with the expanded rosters.
Chris Snyder Got a start and two ABs before being lifted for Wieters in an extra inning game.  Good call because Wieters ended up with the GW hit.
Matt Wieters Upnew_medium A solid week with two homers and a huge game-winning hit.  I also personally watched him frame a pitch for what appears to be the first time this season.  Naturally, it was called a ball, but steps.
Wilson Betemit Still hitless this year.
Alexi Casilla Received just a handful of PAs on the week
Chris Davis Downnew_medium Yes, he hit another homer, but his approach at the plate recently has been terrible.
Ryan Flaherty Two hits....both doubles
J.J. Hardy Upnew_medium Not much in the power department, but Hardy delivered nine hits.
Manny Machado Downnew_medium Only major contribution to the week was his game-tying homer against Cleveland.
Brian Roberts Downnew_medium Four hits and all four went for extra bases (including two homers).  B-Rob is probably the last guy you'd expect that from.
Jonathan Schoop DNP
Danny Valencia Upnew_medium Limited week, but it was a good one:  5-10 with a homer, 2 doubles, and 2 RBI.
Chris Dickerson Downnew_medium TOOTBLAN
Adam Jones Average-ish average....but three homers!  Topped 100 RBI for the first time in his career.
Nick Markakis Downnew_medium Sigh.
Nate McLouth Upnew_medium Six hits (two homers) is what passes as a good week for Nate.  He threw somebody out at the plate, too!
Michael Morse Downnew_medium Yea, he's totally better than Markakis.
Henry Urrutia 1-2
