Luke Scott has been solid for the Baltimore Orioles this season

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by chinmusic on Wednesday 30 September 2009 at 7:46 pm

31-year old lefty swinging OF/DH Luke Scott has been solid again this season for the Orioles. He has played in 126 games for the Orioles this year and he is 115 for 441 (.261 avg, .838 OPS) with 61 runs scored, 25 homers and 77 RBIs. Scott was acquired a couple of years ago from the Houston Astros in the Miguel Tejada trade and he has been a solid player since coming over.

Chris Tillman is giving the Baltimore Orioles a glimpse of the future

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Friday 25 September 2009 at 7:07 pm

21-year old righty starting pitcher Chris Tillman was the Orioles’ #2 prospect heading into this season according to Baseball America. Tillman was part of the amazing haul for Erik Bedard when the O’s traded him to Seattle. Tillman started the year in AAA and he started 18 games there in which he was 8-6 with a 2.70 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP. The Orioles then decided to bring him up along with some other young pitchers when they fell too far behind in the playoff race to really compete for a spot in them. Tillman has started 11 games for the Orioles this season and he is 2-4 with a 4.71 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP. Tillman has allowed 71 hits in 63 innings for the Orioles but this was a learning experience for him. With the stuff Tillman has he should win a spot in the 2010 rotation next spring.

The Baltimore Orioles are excited about a couple of young players

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by chinmusic on Tuesday 22 September 2009 at 5:12 pm

23-year old switch hitting catcher Matt Wieters and 25-year old righty swinging OF Nolan Reimold appear to be in the majors to stay. Wieters was the Orioles’ #1 rated prospect heading into this season according to Baseball America. He has played in 84 games for the Orioles and he is 86 for 305 (.282 avg, .729 OPS) with 30 runs scored, 7 homers and 36 RBIs. You have to think that Wieters will hit better next season as he adjusts to the majors. Nolan Reimold was the Orioles’ #5 rated prospect heading into this season according to Baseball America. Reimold has played in 104 games for the O’s this season and he is 100 for 358 (.279 avg, .821 OPS) with 49 runs scored, 15 homers, 45 RBIs and 8 stolen bases. Reimold has huge power potential and he will likely go to spring training as the starting LF. The Orioles were smart to call up the kids and at least give O’s fans a glimpse of a bright future ahead.

Felix Pie is stepping up for the Baltimore Orioles

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by chinmusic on Wednesday 16 September 2009 at 4:30 pm

24-year old lefty swinging outfielder Felix Pie is starting to play up to his ability. Adam Jones was injured recently and the O’s decided to give Pie a chance to prove himself and he’s running with it. Pie has played in 92 games for the Orioles this season and he is 57 for 216 (.264 avg, .768 OPS) with 36 runs scored, 8 homers and 25 RBIs. He is finally showing off his all-around game and the Orioles might give him a bigger role next season if he finishes this year strong.

This could be it for Melvin Mora with the Baltimore Orioles

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Wednesday 16 September 2009 at 4:26 pm

Get a good look at 37-year old righty swinging Melvin Mora as the Orioles will likely let him go in the off-season. He ran his mouth a little too much about playing time while he was not playing well. Mora has played in 111 games this season for the Orioles and he is 106 for 402 (.264 avg, .681 OPS) with 39 runs scored, 7 homers, 42 RBIs and 3 steals. Mora was excellent for the Orioles last season as he hit .285 (.825 OPS) with 77 runs scored, 23 homers and 104 RBIs. The Orioles will likely be moving in a new direction starting next season and going with youth which should be enough to push Mora out the door.

The Baltimore Orioles shut down Brian Matusz

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Monday 14 September 2009 at 5:32 pm

The Orioles have shut down 22-year old lefty starting pitcher Brian Matusz. Matusz started 8 games for the Orioles this season and he was 5-2 with a 4.63 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP. He pitched well enough to at least have his name penciled in for the 2010 Orioles rotation heading into spring training. I agree with shutting him down but not with who they are replacing him with. 35-year old lefty Mark Hendrickson will finish the season in the Orioles rotation. In 7 starts for the Orioles this season Hendrickson is 1-4 with a 6.35 ERA and a 1.94 WHIP. He might have finally found his niche this season working out of the bullpen. Hendrickson has worked 42 games out of the bullpen this season and he was 4-0 with 1 save, a 3.44 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP. The Orioles should have just left Hendrickson in the bullpen.

The Baltimore Orioles acquire Sean Henn

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General by chinmusic on Monday 14 September 2009 at 5:28 pm

The Orioles have acquired 28-year old lefty reliever Sean Henn from the Twins for cash. Henn pitched in 14 games (0 starts) this season for the Twins and he was 0-3 with a 7.15 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP. In 56 games (5 starts) in his major league career to date, Henn is 2-9 with a 7.44 ERA and a 1.98 WHIP. Hopefully the Orioles didn’t send the Twins more than $50 bucks or they got ripped off.

The Baltimore Orioles trade Freddy Guzman to the Yankees

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General by chinmusic on Tuesday 1 September 2009 at 11:45 am

The Orioles have traded 28-year old switch hitting outfielder Freddy Guzman to the Yankees for either a player to be named later or cash. Guzman played in 20 games in AAA-ball for the Orioles since signing as a free agent and he was 14 for 73 (.192 avg, .474 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 3 RBIs and 13 stolen bases. The Orioles won’t miss Guzman at all and they might have got something from him which means this trade was a win for them.
