When healthy, Jason Hammel was the Orioles’ clear ace in 2012. The 29-year-old added a power sinker to his classic fastball-curveball-slider arsenal. The addition became a career year — Hammel recorded a 3.43 ERA and a 3.29 FIP. The Orioles’ ability to withstand getting just 20 starts from Hammel...

In part eight of my (hopefully) 52 part series, Better Know a 2012 Oriole, I take a look at Tommy Hunter... the fightin' sudden power reliever!
"'Quick; who was second on the Orioles in innings pitched this year (pretend you haven't seen the title)?
Right, Tommy Hunter with 133.2 IP. Sometimes you just need a guy to take the ball, I guess.."
"Given Robert Andino's down 2012, I suggested the Orioles might want to look elsewhere for a starting second baseman for 2013 if they wanted to be competitive again. When the O's picked up Alexi Casilla, the writing was kind of on the wall Andino wasn't going to be getting a starting job with the team next season. And now, as it turns it, he won't be getting...
In a minor trade today, the Baltimore Orioles traded utility infielder Robert Andino to the Seattle Mariners for backup outfielder Trayvon Robinson. I guess the O’s decided that if Jon Papelbon is choking it up in the NL nowadays, Andino’s services are no longer needed. (Zing!)
On a more serious note, the trade makes sense for both squads. For Seattle, Robert Andno adds infield...
Red Sox fans can breathe a sigh of relief as Robert Andino, the Orioles' version of Aaron Boone, has been dealt to Seattle for Trayvon Robinson.

Worth mentioning: Andino isn't actually a Red Sox killer -- he has a .620 OPS against the team and shouldn't have even had that...
M’s land versatile infielder
Looking to build some infield depth, the Seattle Mariners have acquired Robert Andino from the Baltimore Orioles for outfielder Trayvon Robinson.
With a surplus of outfielders, and a lack of depth in the middle infield, this is a trade purely for depths sake. In his career, Andino has played second, third, shortstop, left and centerfield.
Looking to add depth to the infield, the Seattle Mariners acquired versatile Robert Andino from the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday in exchange for reserve outfielder Trayvon Robinson.
The trade instantly gives the Mariners an experienced infielder who can play second base, third base and shortstop. Andino is likely to fill the role held this past season by Japanese infielder Munenori...
