The week-long nightmare ended for the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday as they defeated the Tampa Bay Rays by a score of 2-1, thanks mainly to the arm of Brian Matusz. They snapped a painful a painful six-game skid and are once again tied with the Rays for first place in the American League East. We all as fans can finally take a chance to sit back and relax – well, at least until...
HERE WE GO AGAIN
Toronto has once again been accused of stealing their opponent's signs, this time by Orioles pitcher Jason Hammel, who alluded to it after taking the loss on Wednesday.
Bad news for the Baltimore Orioles, as right fielder Nick Markakis will miss 3-4 weeks after breaking the hamate bone in his hand. Roch Kubatko of MASN is reporting that the injury first occured seven or ten days ago on a slide into second base, but the full break occured on Tuesday while swinging.
The Orioles are exploring various internal options to replace Markakis on the roster...
When things have seemed particularly bad with the Birds this week, it has only gotten worse. I could not believe what I saw last night with the Orioles as they lost to the Tampa Bay Rays, 5-0, in a series matchup that is pretty much now a must-win. They are now out of first place, and the Rays are a game up on them in the divisional hunt. It is now six straight losses and counting...
Baltimore Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis is facing his second surgery in the last nine months. Markakis, who injured his wrist on a ninth-inning swing Tuesday, is set to undergo an operation Friday morning to remove a broken hamate bone from his right wrist. The timetable for Markakis' return is two to four weeks. "If you told me before that this is what they...
A huge part of the Baltimore Orioles unforeseen success this season has been keeping their best players healthy: J.J. Hardy, Adam Jones, Matt Wieters and Nick Markakis have all played in at least 46 games. The Orioles found out Thursday this trend will not continue through June. Markakis has been diagnosed with a broken hamate bone (the same injury as Pablo Sandoval earlier this...
Perhaps my favorite part about being a baseball fan is keeping tabs on the Minor Leagues. I am a prospect hugger and I take no shame in saying this. I follow all the big prospect guys on Twitter and I take in as many Penn League games as I can up here in Burlington. One thing I know is that there are plenty of you out there just like me, so this feature is for you.
It is manageable...
I’m not sure if you all caught the game on MASN on Wednesday night, but the cameras panned to Nick Markakis – who was standing on the railing of the dugout – and he had some bandages wrapped around his wrist. That image didn’t look good and you knew immediately that he was going to miss some time.
Wrist injuries are often tricky; therefore, the Orioles have placed Nick...
The Baltimore Orioles have acquired outfielder-first baseman Steve Pearce from the New York Yankees for cash.
The deal was announced Saturday before Baltimore played at Tampa Bay on Saturday night.
The 29-year-old Pearce was hitting .321 with 11 home runs and 30 RBIs for the Yankees' Triple-A team. He played parts of five seasons with Pittsburgh through last year and hit .232...
Three weeks ago, the Baltimore Orioles and Tampa Rays opened a weekend series at Camden Yards as co-AL East leaders.
That scenario will be repeated at Tropicana Field this weekend, although both teams will enter on losing streaks and Baltimore won't have Nick Markakis.
Markakis is headed to the disabled list for the first time for the slumping Orioles and will miss Friday night...
The Orioles have now lost five games in a row, and people are jumping off the bandwagon left and right. General consensus seems to be that the pitching has gone from great to terrible;
Lot of home runs (due...
