How To Fix The Orioles' Biggest Flaw

The Orioles have a huge problem. Actually, they’ve got a number of them. I mean, it isn’t good that none of Rickard, Kim or Trumbo can play passable defense in the outfield and therefore the Orioles have two competent defensive outfielders. It is worrisome that the Orioles have no infield depth to speak of, and JJ Hardy will be out for the next six weeks. It’s problematic that...

Can Rickard get rolling again? - School of Roch

The Orioles won't face another left-handed starter until the Athletics give Rich Hill the ball in Friday's series opener. That's one whole day. A predictable lineup tonight would include Rule 5 pick Joey Rickard in left field, Mark Trumbo in right and Pedro Alvarez serving as the designated hitter. It's ... Read More

Manny Machado at short and Jonathan Schoop at second has familiar look - Steve Melewski

When Manny Machado took his position at shortstop last night, not only was he replacing J.J. Hardy, but he was once again forming a double-play combination with his good friend, second baseman Jonathan Schoop. The two have played a few major league games together as a DP combo, but also ...

Zach Britton on today's bullpen session - School of Roch

Orioles closer Zach Britton threw on flat ground again today, simulating his delivery and far exceeding soft-toss velocity. He headed to the bullpen, attracting a crowd, and threw five pitches off the front of the mound and five on top of it. It's doubtful that Britton is available tonight while ... Read More

Why Brad Brach Might Be Even Better

Heading into the 2016 season, the Orioles projected to have a very strong bullpen. Any group of relievers will benefit from the presence of Zach Britton and Darren O'Day, sure, but the O's figured to have a nice mix of  talented young players and veterans. Things don't always go according to plan, but they have so far for the O's bullpen. Excluding Brian Matusz, who has yet to...

Orioles’ Hardy Shelved with Foot Fracture

For the next six-to-eight weeks, the Baltimore Orioles will be without two-time All-Star shortstop J.J. Hardy, who suffered a hairline fracture in his left foot after fouling a ball off of it during the fourth inning of Sunday’s game. X-rays that followed Hardy’s departure from the game sparked serious concerns for the Orioles, enough to prompt further testing. The injury was...

JJ Hardy reportedly out 6-8 weeks with fractured left foot

After a 2015 campaign in which they fell short of the postseason, the Baltimore Orioles are looking to return to contention out in the AL East. While they’ve gotten off to a respectable 14-10 start to the 2016 season, it may become more of an uphill climb from here. According to a report by Roch Kubatko of MASN on Monday, two-time All-Star shortstop J.J. Hardy has been diagnosed...

Joe Durham was a Negro League All-Star Before he made History with the Baltimore Orioles

Joe Durham was a bona fide All-Star well before he made history as the first African-American player to hit a home run for the Baltimore Orioles. Playing in 1952 for the Chicago American Giants in the Negro Leagues, Durham was selected to the East-West All-Star Game at Comiskey Park. For a rookie in the league, it was a thrill to be on such a prominent stage amongst the veterans...

Machado and Trumbo carrying the Orioles offense early on

  The Baltimore Orioles expected this type of production from Manny Machado. I’m not sure they expected the exact same from Mark Trumbo. Machado came in as the #3 pick in the 2010 draft and when he made his debut in 2012 he was looked at as the next superstar (along with Mike Trout and Bryce Harper). He had an excellent season in 2013, as he led the league with 51 doubles, but...
