28-year old righty starting pitcher Chris Tillman has been by far the best starting pitcher on the Baltimore Orioles so far in 2016.  He has pitched in 25 games (all starts) for the Orioles so far this year and he is 15-4 with a 3.46 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP.  Tillman has given up 130 hits and 53 walks while whiffing 126 batters in his first 151 innings for the Orioles so far this year.  He has now pitched in 174 games (all starts) in his first 8 years with the Orioles and he is 71-46 with a 4.09 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP.  Tillman was an All-Star for the Orioles in 2013, when he won a career high 16 wins.  He is likely going to set a new career high in wins in the very near future….as long as he can stay healthy!

Dylan Bundy is stepping up for the Baltimore Orioles

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Tuesday 9 August 2016 at 10:11 am

23-year old righty Dylan Bundy came into this season as the Baltimore Orioles‘ #1 prospect according to Baseball America.  The Orioles treated Bundy with kid gloves as a reliever earlier this year to protect him, as he has suffered a lot of injuries in the minors.  By watching his workload early in the year, it has enabled them to move Bundy into the starting rotation and he is look good so far in that role.  In his first five starts for the Orioles this year, Bundy is 3-2 with a 3.00 ERA and a 0.83 WHIP.  He has given up 17 hits (6 homers) and 6 walks while whiffing 33 batters in his first 27 innings as a starting pitcher.  He has given up a lot of bombs, but he has limited the damage by throwing strikes.  Bundy has now pitched in 27 games (5 starts) overall this year for the Orioles and he is 5-3 with a 3.05 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP.  The Orioles need Bundy to keep pitching well as they have had issues in the starting rotation all year long!

28-year old righty reliever/starter Vance Worley is the Swiss Army Knife for the Baltimore Orioles‘ pitching staff.  Worley pitched in 23 games (4 starts) so far this year and he is 2-1 with a 2.89 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP.  He has given up 58 hits and 23 walks while whiffing 42 batters in his first 62 1/3 innings so far this year for the O’s.  In his four starts this year for the Orioles, Worley is 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP.  In his 19 games pitching out of the pen, Worley is 1-0 with a 2.01 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP.  The Orioles need Worley to keep up the good work moving forward, as he has been a lifesaver so this year for the Orioles’ pitching staff.

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.
