Pedro Strop has continued to miss the strike zone in important situations and when he does throw strikes they go into the stands. To Pedro’s defense, his exceptional fastball misleads his experience pitching.  Strop wasn’t always a bull pen guy, he grew up playing shortstop...

The last two years couldn’t have been more different for both of them.  They are the yin to each other’s yang...

Strop; Orioles Defeat Blue Jays, 6-5

Over the weekend, the Orioles placed reliever Pedro Strop on the disabled list (15 days) due to a lower back strain. In turn, the Orioles have recalled Steve Johnson.
