Baltimore Orioles facing roster decisions

With Jonathan Schoop and Kevin Gausman set to return to the active roster at some point this week, the Baltimore Orioles are staring down the barrel of a few tough roster decisions. To make room for these two, the Orioles will likely have to designate two players for assignment.

Baltimore Orioles can afford to be patient with Jonathan Schoop

When Jonathan Schoop, currently rehabbing for Double-A Bowie, returns to the lineup, the Baltimore Orioles will finally have their full projected Opening Day lineup available, provided the nagging shoulder injury that has kept Adam Jones out of the lineup the past two days does not persist.

Baltimore Orioles: Roster shakeup coming soon?

The Baltimore Orioles have won ten of their past 12 games to move within 1.5 games of the first place Tampa Bay Rays.

The Potential New J.D. Martinez

As far as health is concerned, the Orioles have had something of a middle-infield catastrophe, with injuries to J.J. Hardy, Ryan Flaherty, and Jonathan Schoop. Injuries sometimes force teams to do creative things, and what we saw Buck Showalter do was push Steve Pearce to second base on the fly. Pearce had never played the […]

Jonathan Schoop: Patience at the Plate Key to Hot Start

Chase Utley, Not Ryan Howard, the Best Target for Orioles

As I wrote last week, the Orioles are reportedly keeping a close eye on the Phillies’ first baseman/future designated hitter Ryan Howard. I do feel confident in saying that Howard would be a potentially beneficial trade target for the Orioles, but I believe there is a player on the Phillies roster that represents an even greater value for the Orioles. That player is Chase Utley...

Fantasy Baseball - Finding Production at the Bottom of the Order

In fantasy baseball, the 3,4,5 hitters of a teams lineup are the focus of fantasy drafts.  That is where the majority of home runs and runs batted in are generated.  Then focus shifts to the top of the order, and the speed guys who get on base, can steal second and rack up runs.  The bottom of the order is typically overlooked, but there are some decent players who fill out a...
