The Orioles weren’t expecting much out of 30-year old lefty swinging outfielder Corey Patterson when they signed him to a minor league deal. But he has really helped them this year. Patterson has played in 73 games for the O’s this year and he is 71 of 267 (.266 avg, .722 OPS) with 38 runs scored, 7 homers, 27 RBIs and 19 stolen bases. Patterson is a good defensive player and he can handle any spot in the outfield. His speed has been a huge asset to the Orioles this season and he has revived his major league career after stumbling badly in 2009.
