25-year old righty swinging rookie outfielder Joey Rickard was a Rule 5 Draft pick from the Tampa Bay Rays last winter. Then he had a good spring and wound up winning the starting LF job. He started out like a ball of fire and he had a good first month of his career in April. But, in May, pitchers seemed to have figured him out a bit. He played in 26 games in May for the Orioles and he was 18 of 84 (.214 avg, .622 OPS) with 11 runs scored, 2 homers, 4 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. Rickard has now played in 50 games overall this year for the Orioles and he is 44 of 177 (.249 avg, .664 OPS) with 23 runs scored, 4 homers, 11 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. If Rickard doesn’t start hitting better soon, he’s going to start losing P.T. to fellow rookie outfielder Hyun Soo Kim.
