2012 was undoubtedly an exceptional year for the Orioles bull pen. Unforunately, 2013 is a different story. 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...
Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter was a harbinger of encouraging injury news during his pregame conference Tuesday, as he noted that infielder Brian Roberts' recovery from surgery for a ruptured right hamstring tendon is progressing according to plan.
He’s on schedule...I know him. He wants it to happen tomorrow. I don’t think it’s if, but when [he returns this...
We all know by now that the Baltimore Orioles got killed by the Washington Nationals last night, 9-3.
After a lengthy rain delay, the game featured two starters that were in Double-A only about two weeks ago. One guy – Kevin Gausman – was making his second start in the majors for Baltimore; meanwhile, Nathan Karn for Washington was making his major league debut.
In his second career start on Tuesday, Baltimore Orioles rookie Kevin Gausman was met with an offensive barrage by the Washington Nationals, led by Adam LaRoche.Gausman would surrender a total of three home runs in his outing, accounting for each of the seven runs that he allowed. The first was a three-run home run to Adam LaRoche in the first inning, followed by a pair in the fourth...
Jason Hammel held the Nationals to two runs in his longest start
of the season and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Washington
Nationals 6-2 Monday., http://juicedsportsblog.com/sports-news/news/hammel-gets-best-of-nats-as-os-win
Nate Karns had to deal with an hour and 21 minute rain delay before making his MLB debut on Tuesday evening, and he’d have to face the Orioles recently called up top pitching prospect Kevin Gausman in front of a near-capacity Nationals Park crowd.
Karns got things started well in his MLB debut as he retired the first three batters he saw in the first inning. He got two batters...

Mixed-league roto owners, looking for a waiver-wire pitcher before Wednesday's full slate of games?
Here's my free-agent choice (citing most 12-team leagues) for one day of fantasy stardom:
Chris Tillman (vs. Nationals)
1. Of his last seven outings, spanning 44.2 innings, Tillman has the following tallies: Four wins, a 2.64 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 3513 K-BB rate.
We all know that Jason Hammel has struggled this season on the mound despite a 6-2 record.
For much of the first two months of the season, the tall righty has been unable to go deep into games. More often than not, the bullpen, along with the offense has to bail him out.
On Monday, the Hammel that we as fans saw for much of the first half in 2012 re-emerged in Washington...
Another weekly look at who’s hot and who’s not in minor league baseball to help your fantasy team. This week’s edition includes a top-flight pitching prospect making his major league debut, another pitcher this week to 'dash-n-stash' and if you missed out on Profar - there's a new middle infield prospect on the way.

Nationals 9, Orioles 3: Nats explode for 9 runs, but is it enough to make Davey Johnson shave? Nate Karns good enough to earn a second next Sunday. Adam LaRoche blasts two home runs, 4 RBI, so of course J.J. Hardy was voted player of the game by fans on MASN in a landslide.
