Jeff Salazar is off to a good start in AAA-ball for the Baltimore Orioles

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Thursday 29 April 2010 at 8:52 pm

29-year old lefty swinging outfielder Jeff Salazar is off to a good start in AAA for the Orioles. He has played in 18 games this season in AAA and he is 18 of 64 (.281 avg, .881 OPS) with 10 runs scored, 4 homers, 13 RBIs and 4 stolen bases. Salazar has some major league experience but he doesn’t project out to be a starter in the show. But, if he keeps playing well and the Orioles have a need for a backup outfielder then I don’t see any reason that they wouldn’t call him up.

The Baltimore Orioles DFA Wilfrido Perez

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General by chinmusic on Thursday 29 April 2010 at 7:33 pm

The Baltimore Orioles have designated 21-year old righty reliever Wilfrido Perez for assignment. Perez has not pitched this season in the minors for the Orioles. He has not pitched since 2008 due to injury. Perez pitched in 40 games (0 starts) in his first three years in the minors and he is 8-5 with 3 saves, a 3.29 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. The Orioles won’t miss Perez at all either now or down the road.

Will the Baltimore Orioles be calling up Jake Arrieta soon?

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Monday 26 April 2010 at 2:44 pm

The Orioles’ #4 rated prospect coming into this season according to Baseball America is 24-year old righty starting pitcher Jake Arrieta. The Orioles won’t need a 5th starter until next Saturday and Arrieta might get the call. He has started 4 games in AAA-ball this season and he is 2-0 with a 0.36 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP. He has only allowed 13 hits in 25 innings in the minors so far this season and he has 23 whiffs as he is doing a outstanding job of missing bats but that is nothing new to him. Arrieta has now started 52 games (3 years) in his minor league career and he is 19-16 with a 2.93 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP. He has whiffed 291 batters in 288 2/3 innings in his minor league career and he has only allowed 235 hits. The Orioles need to start looking to the future and I think that they should call up Arrieta to start next Saturday and see what the kid has. They have nothing to lose in giving him a chance right now.

You can’t blame Ty Wigginton for the Baltimore Orioles’ slow start

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by chinmusic on Friday 23 April 2010 at 3:13 pm

The Baltimore Orioles are a pathetic 2-14 on the season which already has them 10 games behind the Tampa Bay Rays in the A.L. East. You can’t blame Ty Wigginton for the team’s record however as he has been ripping the ball since replacing the injured Brian Roberts at 2B. Wigginton has played in 13 games for the O’s this season and he is 11 for 41 (.268 avg, 1.009 OPS) with 8 runs scored, 5 homers and 11 RBIs. The Orioles will need to find playing time for Wigginton even when Roberts returns to action if he keeps swinging the bat like he is right now as he has been carrying the offense lately.

The Baltimore Orioles claim Pedro Viola off waivers

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General by chinmusic on Thursday 22 April 2010 at 5:33 pm

The Orioles have claimed 26-year old lefty reliever Pedro Viola off waivers from the Reds. Viola pitched in 1 game in AAA so far this season working one scoreless inning in which he didn’t allow any baserunners. Viola got his first taste of the majors last season with the Reds and he was 0-0 with a 5.14 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP. I like this pickup for the Orioles as you can never have too many lefty arms in the organization and Viola could help them at some point in 2010.

The Baltimore Orioles sign Corey Patterson to a minor league deal

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Tuesday 20 April 2010 at 10:50 pm

The Orioles have inked 30-year old lefty swinging outfielder Corey Patterson to a minor league deal. Patterson played in 16 games for the Nationals & Brewers last season and he was 3 for 29 (.103 avg, .207 OPS) with 2 stolen bases. He has now played in 1,007 games in his major league career and he is 879 for 3,495 (.252 avg, .694 OPS) with 479 runs scored, 104 homers, 363 RBIs and 184 stolen bases. Patterson will have to play well in the minors before the Orioles even think of giving him another chance at the show in 2010.

The Baltimore Orioles demote Brad Bergeson to AAA

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Pitching BP by chinmusic on Tuesday 20 April 2010 at 12:02 pm

The Orioles have demoted 24-year old righty starter Brad Bergeson to AAA and he certainly deserved to go. Bergeson has started 3 games this season for the Orioles and he is 0-2 with a 12.19 ERA and a 2.61 WHIP. He gave up 21 hits (4 homers) and he walked 6 batters in only 10 1/3 innings for the O’s which is stunning. 26-year old righty Jason Berken will likely come out of the pen to replace Bergeson in the starting rotation. Berken has pitched in 4 games (0 starts) for the O’s so far this season and he is 0-0 with a 1.50 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP. He has only given up 9 hits while walking 2 batters in 12 innings pitched. Berken struggled last season as a starter in his rookie season for the O’s who hope that he has learned from his mistakes.

The Baltimore Orioles are off to a terrible start to the 2010 season

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Weekly Results by chinmusic on Monday 19 April 2010 at 3:39 pm

The Orioles are in last place in the A.L. East coming into this week with a 2-11 record which has them 8 games behind the Tampa Bay Rays. The Orioles have been outscored 66-42 this season as they are neither hitting or pitching well this year. The Orioles are on the road this week against the Mariners (three games) and the Red Sox (3 games this weekend). They need to get things going soon or some heads are gonna start rolling in Baltimore.

Brian Matusz is off to a good start for the Baltimore Orioles

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Monday 19 April 2010 at 3:36 pm

23-year old lefty starting pitcher Brian Matusz is off to a good start for the Orioles. He has started 3 games for the Orioles so far this season and he is 2-0 with a 4.34 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. He has only given up 16 hits in 18 2/3 innings this season while whiffing 23 batters showing just how good his stuff has been. The fact that Matusz has the only two wins the Orioles have this season shows that the team and bullpen come to play when the kid is on the mound.

The Baltimore Orioles place Felix Pie on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by chinmusic on Saturday 17 April 2010 at 10:27 pm

The Orioles have placed outfielder Felix Pie on the 15-day disabled list with a upper back muscle strain. Pie has played in 8 games for the Orioles this season and he is 8 for 20 (.400 avg, 1.105 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 1 homer and 1 RBI. The O’s have recalled 28-year old righty swinging Luis Montanez to replace Pie on the active roster. Montanez played in 7 games in AAA-ball this season and he was 7 for 27 (.259 avg, .704 OPS) with 4 runs scored and 5 RBIs. He went 0 for 1 in his Orioles’ debut yesterday.

UPDATE: (4/20/2010) - Felix Pie’s injury is much more severe than originally thought and he could be out the next 3 months.
