Found April 22, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Baltimore Orioles haven’t received the production they were hoping for out of their starting pitchers so far this season. As a result, they are reportedly looking for rotation help, and “there’s an increasing feeling around baseball people” that the team could dangle left-handed starting pitcher Zach Britton in a trade, according to Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe. Britton is formerly one of the O’s highly regarding pitching prospects. He showed flashes of his ability while making his major league debut in 2011 – posting a 4.61 ERA over 28 starts. However, he took a step back last year, struggling to the tune of a 5.07 ERA over 12 appearances – including 11 starts. The southpaw has posted a solid ERA (1.98) over three starts for the Orioles’ Triple-A affiliate, but his peripherals haven’t been quite as impressive. Britton’s struck out five batters in 13 2/3 innings while allowing seven walks. The Orioles only have one starting pitcher – Wei-Yin Chen – with an ERA below 4.00. Jason Hammel and Miguel Gonzalez have been passable as rotation arms, but Jake Arrieta (6.63 ERA) and Chris Tillman (7.07 ERA) have been awful to start the season.

Baltimore Orioles Recall Pitcher Alex Burnett

MLB News: The Baltimore Orioles recalled pitcher Alex Burnett Monday from Triple-A Norfolk to fill in as a middle reliever.

About Last Night and Arrieta Demoted

Last night, the Orioles pulled off a walk-off victory as Nick Markakis singled in the winning run to help them win, 2-1. Chris Tillman – who started for Baltimore – pitched very, very well.

Baltimore Orioles Option Pitcher Jake Arrieta

MLB News: The Baltimore Orioles have optioned pitcher Jake Arrieta to Triple-A Norfolk after having struggled this season. And when we say struggled, he posted a 6.63 earned run average and 16 walks in 19 innings. Fantasy Ramifications: He has a solid arm as he also struck out 20 hitters, but until that control is a non-issue, he will always be considered a scrap heap when he is...
