|Closing in on a career-high for innings pitched in a season (2012 with San Diego Padres - 66.2 innings) and in the midst of his best season to date. He added 3.2 scoreless innings this week to push his ERA back down to 3.00 (3.65 FIP).
|With the extra arms and some losses this week, his action was limited to just two appearances. Scoreless in both with a hit and a walk.
|Chen has a knack for picking up victories even when he's not sharp. Lasted fewer than 6 innings in Toronto on Monday, yet still recorded his 16th win of the year. Allowed 9 hits and 2 earned runs.
|Knocked around somewhat by the Boston Red Sox and only hung in for 5 innings (needed 91 pitches). Allowed 7 hits and 2 earned runs. Earned runs came off of solo shots to David Ortiz and Yoenis Cespedes. Purely opinion, but it looked like his pitches were simply catching too much of the plate.
|First time in seven starts that Migo has gone fewer than 6 innings. Lasted 5.2 innings and allowed 8 hits, 3 earned runs. Seven strikeouts were great, but he, too, allowed 2 home runs.
|Three solid innings and picked up his 9th hold of the season.
|Picked up a spot start on Tuesday because of Friday's doubleheader. Things went....about as expected. Two runs, two hits, but four walks allowed.
|Allowed an earned run while recording his 13th hold of the season. Still being left in to face too many right-handed batters, which makes less sense given the extra arms in the bullpen for September.
|Three scoreless relief innings brings TJ closer to securing a spot on the Orioles playoff roster.
|He's been surprisingly adequate during his September call up stint, but likely will not factor into the Orioles playoff roster.
|Possibly limited slightly by a leg injury, but he still managed to rack up 3 strikeouts in 1.2 innings. He's pitched just 6 innings in the month, but he has 14 strikeouts. That's not a typo.
|Limited the "damage" to just 2 hits, but 5 walks is usually pretty dangerous.
|Down arrow might be slightly harsh, but he allowed an extra innings homer. He's allowed 6 earned runs in September.
|Rattled a bit early, but fought back and recorded the quality start. Seven IP, 5 hits, and 2 ER. Struck out 6 and moves closer to a game 1 start in the ALDS.
|Three hits and a walk in 1.2 innings pitched.
|1-10 this week, bringing him to just 5 for 27 in September (although he does have 2 homers).
|Even worse is Caleb Joseph: 0-13 for the week and 4 for 39 in September.
|Not great this week, but he's pretty solid in September as a whole (and throughout his career).
|Noticing a theme here? Hopefully these bats heat up for the playoffs....
|.866 OPS in 50 ABs for the Orioles.
|One of the few guys in the lineup swinging a hot bat. 6 for 13 with three homers. Pearce has now gone 15-43 in the month of September. Getting some needed rest to heal a wrist injury.
|Limited playing time, but he had as many hits as Flaherty, Hardy, and Johnson combined.
|Yes, he was only 3-14, but he hit his first career home run and that always deserves an up arrow.
|2014's Most Valuable Oriole certainly put up quality numbers this week and is having a pretty solid month overall.
|Alejandro De Aza
|.250 for the week as he continues to make a push for a playoff roster spot.
|Limited his contributions to two multi-hit games, but came up big in both.
|Lough. De Aza. Who will own it?
|Spent most of the week on the bench to rehab a shoulder injury in preparation for the playoffs.
|Got some extra time in the field with Markakis/Pearce resting and got to showcase his apparently good arm. Also hit safely in all four games he saw time in.
