He immediately showed the contents of the manila envelope to Orioles head athletic trainer Richie Bancells before informing manager Buck Showalter. "I'm like, Richie, can you believe this?' Then I told Buck about it," Matusz said recently, chuckling...

Orioles to carry Matusz as reliever

Brian Matusz has made the Orioles roster for Opening Day. The 26-year-old lefty was told by manager Buck Showalter that he would start the season in the bullpen for the Orioles. Matusz entered spring competing for a rotation spot with Jake Arrieta. The Orioles opted to go with Arrieta for the final rotation spot after he out pitched Matusz this spring. Last season Matusz appeared...

O's Matusz injures nose in bunting drill

Matusz Turning the Corner?

Brian Matusz has been on a roller coaster since his first day in the big leagues. We have seen the young southpaw go from once highly touted prospect that would soon be the ace of the Orioles pitching staff to injury prone bust and now a bottom end of the rotation guy who could either implode or hurl a gem on any given night.

Rangers smack Matusz, O’s around, dampen enthusiasm from road trip just a bit

Wow. That one word pretty much sums up that past road trip for the Orioles. After taking their fourth consecutive L against division rival New York to start the 6 game trip, the frustration of being able to squeak out wins against lesser competition but never really being able to compete against powerhouses such as Boston and New York began to build in the minds of Orioles faithful...
