The Baltimore Orioles have outrighted 33-year old righty swinging infielder Paul Janish to AAA.  Janish played in 14 games for the Orioles this year and he was 6 for 31 (.194 avg, .512 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 0 homers and 0 RBIs.  Janish has now played in 28 games in his first two years with the O’s and he is 16 of 66 (.242 avg, .585 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 0 homers and 3 RBIs.  The Orioles have called up 29-year old righty reliever Oliver Drake to replace Janish on the active roster.  Drake has pitched in 27 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the Orioles so far this year and he was 0-1 with 10 saves, a 2.02 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP.  Drake got his first taste of the show last year for the Orioles, working in 13 games (0 starts) in which he was 0-0 with a 2.87 ERA and a 1.60 WHIP.

The Baltimore Orioles have activated 33-year old righty swinging SS J.J. Hardy from the 15-day disabled list.  Hardy has played in 22 games for the O’s so far this year and he is 19 of 78 (.244 avg, .701 OPS) with 11 runs scored, 2 homers and 8 RBIs.  Hardy played in 3 games in AA-ball on his rehab assignment and he was 4 for 11 (.364 avg, .780 OPS) with 1 run scored.  Getting Hardy back will shift Manny Machado back to 3B.  To make room on the active roster for Hardy, the Orioles have sent 27-year old lefty reliever T.J. McFarland back to AAA.  McFarland has pitched in 13 games (0 starts) for the Orioles so far this year and he is 1-2 with a 5.14 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 118 games (2 starts) in his first four years with the Orioles and he is 11-7 with a 4.02 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP.  McFarland will probably work his way back to Baltimore later this year.

The Baltimore Orioles have sent 26-year old righty starting pitcher Mike Wright to AAA.  Wright pitched in 13 games (12 starts) for the Orioles so far this year and he is 3-4 with a 6.12 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP.  He gave up 73 hits (12 homers) and 24 walks while whiffing 46 batters in his first 64 2/3 innings this year for the Orioles, as he has gotten hit hard.  The Orioles should consider trying Wright in the bullpen, where his stuff could play out well.  The Orioles will activate Yovani Gallardo off the D.L. to take Wright’s place in the starting rotation.
