Baltimore Orioles may have help waiting in the wings

It’s been an up-and-down season for the Baltimore Orioles. There’s no denying that fact. At 58-56, the team has struggled to break loose from the clutches of the .500 level. Thanks to a myriad of factors — inconsistent offensive production, spotty starting pitching, injuries, and just plain old bad luck — the Orioles are nowhere close to duplicating 2014’s 96-win season...

Baltimore Orioles: The status of the starting rotation

The month of May was not kind to the Baltimore Orioles. They went 13-16, and were just 10-10 during a 20-game stretch that included 17 home games.

Rookie pitcher Mike Wright was one of the lone bright spots for the team during May, as he went 2-1 with an...

Orioles’ development of Wright and Wilson looks good

Normally, starting two rookie pitchers with a combined total of two Major League starts in a double header is a recipe for two tallies in the loss column.
