Dylan Bundy is pitching really well so far in June for the Baltimore Orioles

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Saturday 25 June 2016 at 2:25 pm

23-year old righty reliever Dylan Bundy came into this season as the Baltimore Orioles‘ #1 prospect according to Baseball America.  But, due to his injuries in the past, he was out of options heading into spring training, so the Orioles couldn’t (and still can’t) send Bundy to the minors without exposing him to waivers.  So they have moved him to the bullpen (he has been a starter his whole professional career) to keep him healthy and monitor his workload in 2016.  He has pitched in 19 games (0 starts) for the Orioles so far this year and he is 2-1 with a 3.90 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP.  He has given up 38 hits and 9 walks while whiffing 19 batters in his first 30 innings pitched so far this year!  Bundy has pitched in 4 games (0 starts) so far in June and he is 1-0 with a 2.00 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP.  The Orioles hope that Bundy is finally starting to adjust to his new role working out of the pen.  He has now pitched in 21 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Orioles and he is 2-1 with a 3.69 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP.

Mychal Givens is rolling for the Baltimore Orioles

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Thursday 9 June 2016 at 2:57 pm

26-year old righty reliever Mychal Givens has been downright nasty for the Baltimore Orioles so far this year.  He has pitched in 23 games (0 starts) for the Orioles so far this year and he is 5-0 with a 1.91 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP.  He has given up 26 hits and 13 walks while whiffing 40 batters in his first 28 1/3 innings for the Orioles so far this year.  He has now pitched in 45 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Orioles and he is 7-0 with a 1.85 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP.  He has given up only 46 hits and 19 walks while whiffing 70 batters in the first 58 1/3 innings of his Major League career.  The smartest move Givens ever made was giving up playing the infield and converting to a pitcher in the minors.  He has awesome stuff!

Brad Brach has pitched well since coming to the Baltimore Orioles

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Wednesday 25 May 2016 at 9:49 am

30-year old righty reliever Brad Brach has pitched great since arriving with the Baltimore Orioles.  He has pitched in 20 games (0 starts) for the Orioles so far this year and he is 4-0 with 1 save, a 1.08 ERA and a 0.88 WHIP.  He has given up 15 hits and 7 walks while whiffing 26 batters in his first 25 innings for the Orioles so far this year.  Brach has now pitched in 128 games (0 starts) in his first three years with the Orioles and he is 16-4 with 2 saves, a 2.65 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP.  Brach has been quite a find for the Orioles and I see no reason to think he can’t keep up the good work moving forward.

The Baltimore Orioles have three starting pitchers that are looking good so far this year

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Saturday 14 May 2016 at 12:07 pm

The Baltimore Orioles are getting good work out of three of their starting pitchers right now.  28-year old righty Chris Tillman has been rock solid for the Orioles all season long so far in 2016.  Tillman has pitched in 8 games (all starts) for the Orioles so far this year and he is 5-1 with a 2.58 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP.  He has given up 35 hits and 18 walks while whiffing 47 batters in his first 45 1/3 innings this year for the Orioles, as he has seemed to have rebounded nicely from his rough 2015 season.  26-year old righty Tyler Wilson moved into the starting rotation when Yovani Gallardo was placed on the D.L. due to a shoulder issue.  Wilson has pitched in 7 games (4 starts) for the Orioles so far this year and he is 2-1 with a 2.93 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP.  He has given up 26 hits and 7 walks while whiffing 15 batters in his first 30 2/3 innings pitched in 2016.  No reason to take him out of the rotation any time soon with the way he is pitching right now.  25-year old righty starting pitcher Kevin Gausman started the 2016 season on the D.L., but he has been making up for lost time since he has been activated.  He has pitched in 4 games (all starts) for the Orioles so far this year and he is 0-1 with a 2.16 ERA and a 0.80 WHIP.  He has given up 15 hits and he has walked 5 batters while whiffing 23 of them in his first 25 innings so far this year.  Gausman seems to finally be putting everything together for the Orioles.  The Orioles need these three guys to keep rolling!

Chris Tillman is looking good this year for the Baltimore Orioles

28-year old righty starting pitcher Chris Tillman is looking pretty solid so far this year for the Baltimore Orioles.  He has pitched in 6 games (all starts) for the Orioles so far this year and he is 3-1 with a 2.81 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP.  He has given up 24 hits and 12 walks while whiffing 33 batters in his first 32 innings so far this year, which are pretty impressive numbers.  The Orioles hope that Tillman keeps pitching well, as he was not good at all in 2015.  He pitched in 31 games (all starts) for the Orioles in 2015 and he was 11-11 with a 4.99 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP.

Mychal Givens is an impressive reliever for the Baltimore Orioles

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Monday 25 April 2016 at 8:23 am

25-year old righty reliever Mychal Givens of the Baltimore Orioles has only been a pitcher since 2013, but you would never know that by watching him pitch.  He was actually a middle infielder in his first three years in the minors for the Orioles.  Givens brings big time heat to the plate.  He has pitched in 9 games (0 starts) for the Orioles so far this year and he is 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP.  In his first two years with the Orioles, Givens has now pitched in 31 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Orioles and he is 3-0 with a 2.08 ERA and a 1.03 WHIP.  He has only given up 30 hits and 10 walks while whiffing a very impressive 54 batters in his first 39 innings in the show!  If he pitched for another team, he would be pitching later in ballgames, but with Darren O’Day, Brad Brach and Zach Britton handling the end of teams, Givens will have to settle for middle relief in 2016.

Dylan Bundy is looking pretty good so far for the Baltimore Orioles in 2016

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Tuesday 19 April 2016 at 5:56 am

23-year old righty starting pitcher Dylan Bundy came into this season as the Baltimore Orioles‘ #1 prospect according to Baseball America.  He was out of options this year, so it forced the Orioles to keep him or expose him to waivers.  In an effort to keep him healthy, the Orioles are using him out of the bullpen this year.  He has pitched in 3 games (0 starts) for the Orioles so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 2.08 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP.  He has given up 5 hits and 1 walk in his first 4 1/3 innings this year, but he has yet to whiff any batters.  He has now pitched in 5 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Orioles and he is 0-0 with a 1.50 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP.  Bundy will likely be a starter down the road for the Orioles, but they are likely going to treat him with kid gloves in 2016.

Chris Tillman is looking sharp so far this year for the Baltimore Orioles

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Monday 11 April 2016 at 6:58 am

27-year old righty Chris Tillman appears to be back on the right track in 2016.  He pitched in 31 games (all starts) for the Baltimore Orioles last year and he was 11-11 with a 4.99 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP.  But, he has started 2 games so far this year and he is 1-0 with a 1.29 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP.  He has only given up 4 hits and 2 walks while whiffing 10 batters in his first seven innings this year, which are pretty impressive numbers.  The Orioles need Tillman to start pitching deeper in games, and that will likely happen as the year goes on.  The more important thing is for Tillman to be effective.
