Baltimore Orioles catcher Matt Wieters has been ejected from Tuesday night's game against the Toronto Blue Jays for arguing with home plate umpire Doug Eddings.
Wieters received his first career ejection for arguing balls and strikes with Eddings during Toronto's three-run fifth inning, removing his mask and yelling at Eddings after Rajai Davis grounded an RBI single to center, putting the Blue Jays up 8-1.
Ronny Paulino replaced Wieters, who was hit by a pitch and grounded out in his two plate appearances.
Baltimore's first round pick in 2007, Wieters came in hitting .233 with eight homers and 22 RBIs, but is stuck in a 7-for-59 slump in his past 17 games.

The baseball season is now officially 25% over, and if you stop and take a look at the the standings of all the teams in both leagues, one team glares out so stunningly, that you find yourself squinting and staring at the listings a second time; The Baltimore Orioles! I knew that they had been doing fairly well, but not this good!
Baltimore Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis was held out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays with soreness in his right wrist.
It's the first game he's missed this season.
Markakis was injured on a swing in the ninth-inning of Tuesday's loss at Toronto. X-rays taken after the game were negative, but Markakis is scheduled to see a hand specialist...
Adam Jones is ecstatic about one particular baseball transaction during the last week.
No, its not his six-year, 85.5 million extension with the Baltimore Orioles.
It was the Detroit Tigers decision to call up outfielder Quintin Berry, Jones best friend since they were 5 years old and attending Webster Elementary School in San Diego. The two are so close that Jones is the godfather...
It looks like after the loss on Monday night, the Orioles decided to make some moves. As I thought, the Orioles would demote Tommy Hunter today; however, they also sent Xavier Avery back to Triple-A after scuffling pretty badly as of late.
Endy Chavez is back from the disabled list.
Although Avery did well his first week up in Baltimore and his sample size doesn't indicate...
He's the closest thing the Baltimore Orioles have had to an Iron Man since Cal Ripken Jr. retired. Nick Markakis missed his first game of the season Wednesday and just his sixth in the past three-plus seasons with a right wrist injury. Markakis was hurt on a swing in the ninth inning Tuesday, and he will be examined by a specialist Thursday. X-rays taken Wednesday were negative...
Folks, are we worried about the Baltimore Orioles now? Tonight, they lost their fifth game in a row, as the Toronto Blue Jays defeated them, 4-1. Once again, the Orioles lose a series, and this time they were swept. The Jays treated the Orioles like a mule, and they once again brought the pain, as they scored all their runs off solo homers. Jason Hammel became the latest Baltimore...
Want to know something that is scarier than any horror movie currently in theaters? The 2012 American League East. As of May 27th, all teams had winning percentages of .500 or above, as well as positive, double-digit run differentials. What’s even scarier is that the Baltimore Orioles (the long-time cellar dwellers) are still leading the division. Everybody acknowledged that they...
For the Orioles, it has been an amazing start to the season. However, have the real Birds – at least, from what we have known the last 14 years – finally shown up?
The first six weeks were something to behold, as they looked like contenders and took the baseball world by storm; however, in the last eight days, the Orioles have gone 2-6, and the starting pitching – which had...
ST. PETERSBURG -- The battle for bragging rights in the AL East suddenly doesn't look like all that much to brag about.
It was only a week ago that the Baltimore Orioles and Tampa Bay Rays were setting the pace atop the division, picking up steam heading toward their three-game series starting Friday night at Tropicana Field.
But right now, the impending showdown for supremacy...

On Tuesday night, the Orioles dropped their fourth game in a row as they lost to the Toronto Blue Jays, 8-6.
With the loss, Baltimore has lost three straight series; however, they are still tied for first place in the American League East with the Tampa Bay Rays at 29-21. Once again, the Orioles got a shaky start from a pitcher – this time, Jake Arrieta – and much like Tommy...
As I’m writing this, the Dodgers and Orioles are both in first place, with neither team expected to make a major splash in the off-season (though our very own Thomas Wayne did predict a major improvement for the O’s this season.
The Orioles currently sit at 29-19 (though they’re losing to the Blue Jays as I write). The bats have been there, with 5 regulars posting OPS+’s...
