The Baltimore Orioles have signed 34-year old lefty reliever Tom Gorzelanny to a minor league deal.  He pitched in 7 games (0 starts) earlier this year for the Indians and he was 1-0 with a 21.00 ERA and a 3.00 WHIP.  He gave up 4 hits (1 homer) and 5 walks while whiffing 4 batters in his three innings with the Indians this year.  Gorzelanny has now pitched in 314 games (121 starts) in his first 12 years in the show and he is 50-53 with 2 saves, a 4.40 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP.  This was a depth signing and little more for the Orioles.

21-year old righty starting pitcher Hunter Harvey came into this season as the Baltimore Orioles‘ #2 prospect according to Baseball America.  But he needs Tommy John surgery that will knock him out for the rest of the 2016 season and most of the 2017 season.  Harvey has pitched in 5 games (all starts) in Rookie+A-ball for the Orioles this year and he was 0-1 with a 2.13 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP.  He gave up 12 hits and 6 walks while whiffing 18 batters in his 12 2/3 innings in the minors this year.  Harvey has now pitched in 30 games (all starts) in his first three years in the minors and he is 7-7 with a 2.79 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP.

The Baltimore Orioles have placed 28-year old lefty swinging outfielder Hyun Soo Kim on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 11th, due to a strained hamstring.  Kim has played in 46 games for the Orioles so far this year and he is 50 for 152 (.329 avg, .864 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 3 homers, 11 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  The Orioles have called up 30-year old lefty swinging outfielder Julio Borbon to replace Kim on the active roster.  Borbon has played in 83 games in AA-ball for the Orioles so far this year and he is 90 for 311 (.289 avg, .726 OPS) with 48 runs scored, 5 homers, 20 RBIs and 20 stolen bases.  He last played in the show back in 2013 with the Rangers and Cubs.  He has played in 288 games in his first four years in the show and he is 215 of 789 (.272 avg, .666 OPS) with 111 runs scored, 8 homers, 76 RBIs and 47 stolen bases.

The Baltimore Orioles have designated 29-year old lefty swinging outfielder Henry Urrutia for assignment.  Urrutia played in 80 games in AA+AAA-ball for the Orioles this year and he was 82 of 293 (.280 avg, .711 OPS) with 36 runs scored, 3 homers, 34 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  He played in 34 games in his two years with the Orioles and he was 25 of 92 (.272 avg, .624 OPS) with 8 runs scored, 1 homer and 8 RBIs.  Urrutia should have an easy time finding a new team.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Tuesday 12 July 2016 at 6:08 pm

26-year old righty reliever Richard Rodriguez of the Baltimore Orioles is pitching really well in the minors this year.  He has pitched in 30 games (1 start) in AAA-ball so far this year for the Orioles and he is 5-1 with 2 saves, a 2.13 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP.  Rodriguez has given up 44 hits and 16 walks while whiffing 44 batters in his 50 2/3 innings so far this year, so he has been really impressive.  Rodriguez has now pitched in 158 games (13 starts) in his first seven years in the minors and he is 22-10 with 3 saves, a 3.18 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP.  He could get his first shot at the show for the Orioles later this year, if he keeps pitching well in AAA.

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Saturday 9 July 2016 at 12:57 pm

The Baltimore Orioles have called up 23-year old righty reliever Jason Garcia.  Garcia has pitched in 15 games (all starts) in AAA-ball for the Orioles so far this year and he is 4-7 with a 4.79 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP.  Garcia pitched in 21 games (0 starts) in his first taste of the majors for the Orioles last year and he was 1-0 with a 4.25 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP.

UPDATE:  (7/11/2016) – Jason Garcia has been sent to AAA.  He didn’t pitch for the Orioles this time around.

The Baltimore Orioles call up Mike Wright

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Friday 8 July 2016 at 3:13 pm

The Baltimore Orioles have called up 26-year old righty starting pitcher Mike Wright.  Wright pitched in 13 games (12 starts) earlier this year for the Orioles and he was 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 for the Orioles.  He has also pitched in 3 games (all starts) in AAA-ball for the Orioles this year and he was 1-0 with a 0.87 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP.  Wright has good stuff and he will be used out of the pen this time around, which might suit his skill set better than starting.

UPDATE:  (7/9/2016) – The Orioles have sent Mike Wright to back to AAA.  In last night’s 6-2 loss to the Angels, Wright worked 4 2/3 innings in which he gave up 3 hits, 4 runs (2 earned) and 2 walks while whiffing 2 batters.  He will likely be back up after the All-Star Break for the Orioles.

The Baltimore Orioles have sent 27-year old righty swinging outfielder Dariel Alvarez to AAA and they have sent 23-year old lefty reliever Jayson Aquino to AA.  Alvarez played in 1 game for the Orioles this year and he was 0 for 1 with a walk.  He has now played in 13 games in his first two years with the Orioles and he is 7 for 29 (.241 avg, .692 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 1 homer and 1 RBI.  Aquino has pitched in 1 game out of the pen for the Orioles this year (his Major League debut) and he got both of the batters out that he pitched to.  I could see both Alvarez and Aquino back with the Orioles at some point this year.
