24-year old righty swinging 1B/DH Trey Mancini came into this season as the Baltimore Orioles‘ #8 prospect according to Baseball America and he is showing why since they called him up!  Mancini has played in 4 games for the Orioles in his first taste of the show so far this year and he is a very impressive 5 for 11 (.455 avg, 1.864 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 3 homers and 5 RBI.  Mancini also played in 142 games earlier this year in AA+AAA-ball for the Orioles in which he was 154 of 546 (.282 avg, .815 OPS) with 78 runs scored, 20 homers, 68 RBI and 2 stolen bases.  The Orioles hope that Mancini can keep up the good work the rest of the way in 2016!

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by joelapinski on Monday 8 August 2016 at 8:41 am

24-year old righty swinging 3B Manny Machado had a game for the ages yesterday against the Chicago White Sox!  Machado hit a homer in each of the first three innings of the game yesterday (James Shields in the first two innings and Matt Albers in the 3rd inning).  Machado finished up the game going 3 for 5 with 3 runs scored, 3 homers and 7 RBIs in a 10-2 Orioles’ win.  That was the first time a hitter whacked a homer in each of the first three innings of game since July 2nd, 1930 when White Sox’ outfielder Carl Reynolds did it against the New York Yankees!

Machado has now played in 105 games for the Baltimore Orioles so far this year and he is 131 of 427 (.307 avg, .923 OPS) with 76 runs scored, 32 doubles, 25 homers and 67 RBIs.  Machado is leading the Orioles in both doubles and runs scored.  He is also second on the team in both homers and RBIs right now.  Machado has now played in 556 games in his first five years with the Orioles and he is 642 of 2,245 (.286 avg, .813 OPS) with 328 runs scored, 93 homers, 282 RBIs and 30 stolen bases.  Despite only being in his fifth year with the Orioles, Machado is already tied for #32 in franchise history with his 93 homers!  He is also #30 in batting average (.286), #16 in SLG (.477), #30 in OPS (.813) and he is tied for #49 in doubles (135) in Orioles’ history!  And he’s just getting started!

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by joelapinski on Friday 17 June 2016 at 10:13 am

30-year old righty swinging OF/1B/DH Mark Trumbo is crushing the ball so far this year for the Baltimore Orioles.  Trumbo has now played in 65 games for the Orioles so far this year and he is 73 of 258 (.283 avg, .898 OPS) with 38 runs scored, 20 homers, 49 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Trumbo leads the Major Leagues right now with his 20 homers!  He is #1 on the Orioles in both homers and RBIs.  He is also #3 on the team in runs scored right now!  As long as Trumbo stays healthy, he should eclipse his career highs of 85 runs scored, 34 homers and 100 RBIs all achieved in 2013 with the Los Angeles Angels.

The Baltimore Orioles are getting solid production from a couple surprising players

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by joelapinski on Friday 20 May 2016 at 9:54 am

32-year old righty swinging outfielder Nolan Reimold and 28-year old lefty swinging outfielder Hyun Soo Kim have been playing well for the Baltimore Orioles so far this year.  Reimold has played in 23 games for the Orioles so far this year and he is 18 of 55 (.327 avg, .918 OPS) with 9 runs scored, 3 homers, 6 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  He has now played in 370 games in his first seven years with the Orioles and he is 296 of 1,161 (.255 avg, .769 OPS) with 158 runs scored, 50 homers, 152 RBIs and 17 stolen bases.  Reimold has always been a pretty solid player for the Orioles, but he has had issues staying healthy in his time with them.  Hyun Soo Kim signed a 2-year, $7 million dollar deal over the winter for the Baltimore Orioles and it came with the right for him to reject any demotion.  So when he had a rough spring training, they asked him to go the the minors and he refused.  So the Orioles added him to the roster instead of eating his $7 million bucks.  Kim has played in 12 games for the Orioles so far this year and he is 11 of 29 (.379 avg, .868 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 0 homers and 2 RBIs.  He also has walked twice as many times (4) than he has whiffed (2) so far this year for the Orioles, so he is showing a good eye at the plate when he plays.  I don’t see Kim’s playing time increasing any time soon unless the Orioles have a rash of injuries to outfielders.

Joey Rickard continues to shine for the Baltimore Orioles

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by joelapinski on Tuesday 19 April 2016 at 6:05 am

24-year old righty swinging outfielder Joey Rickard is already becoming a fan favorite for the Baltimore Orioles.  It’s not hard to see why if you have seen him play.  He is a full bore, get dirty type of player, which makes sense as he was a Rule 5 Draft pick from the division rival Tampa Bay Rays.  Rickard has played in 11 games for the Orioles so far this year and he is 14 of 46 (.304 avg, .777 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 1 homer and 4 RBIs.  He played in 117 games in A+AA+AAA-ball for the Rays last year and he was 127 of 396 (.321 avg, .874 OPS) with 62 runs scored, 2 homers, 55 RBIs and 23 stolen bases.  Give a lot of credit to the Orioles’ scouting staff for finding Rickard.
