Baltimore Orioles MLB News - Orioles Baseball Blog http://baltimore.bloglockers.com/orioles Baltimore Orioles Wed, 25 Sep 2013 12:36:57 +0000 http://wordpress.org/?v=2.7 en hourly 1 Manny Machado is done for the season for the Baltimore Orioles http://baltimore.bloglockers.com/orioles/2013/09/25/manny-machado-is-done-for-the-season-for-the-baltimore-orioles/ http://baltimore.bloglockers.com/orioles/2013/09/25/manny-machado-is-done-for-the-season-for-the-baltimore-orioles/#comments Wed, 25 Sep 2013 12:36:57 +0000 joelapinski http://baltimore.bloglockers.com/orioles/?p=1122 21-year old righty swinging 3B Manny Machado will miss the rest of the 2013 season after tearing a ligament in his knee in Tampa last Monday Night.  The good news is that his injury won’t require surgery and he should be running again in six to eight weeks.  Machado played in 156 games for the Orioles this year and he was 189 of 667 (.283 avg, .746 OPS) with 88 runs scored, 51 doubles, 14 homers, 71 RBIs and 6 stolen bases.  He has now played in 207 games in his first two years with the O’s and he is 239 of 858 (.279 avg, .744 OPS) with 112 runs scored, 21 homers, 97 RBIs and 8 stolen bases.  The Orioles and Machado really dodged a bullet here as this injury did not look good when it happened.

Matt Wieters might never be the player the Baltimore Orioles thought he was going to be http://baltimore.bloglockers.com/orioles/2013/09/25/matt-wieters-might-never-be-the-player-the-baltimore-orioles-thought-he-was-going-to-be/ http://baltimore.bloglockers.com/orioles/2013/09/25/matt-wieters-might-never-be-the-player-the-baltimore-orioles-thought-he-was-going-to-be/#comments Wed, 25 Sep 2013 12:32:33 +0000 joelapinski http://baltimore.bloglockers.com/orioles/?p=1120 27-year old switch-hitting catcher Matt Wieters was supposed to be the best catcher in all of baseball for a long time, or at least that’s what the Orioles thought they had in him.  He has turned into a solid catcher, but he’s nowhere near being the best catcher in baseball.  He has played in 145 games for the Orioles so far this year and he is 120 of 514 (.233 avg, .698 OPS) with 58 runs scored, 21 homers, 76 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.  Wieters is #3 on the Orioles in RBIs with 76 of them so far this year.  He is also #4 in homers (21) and #7 in runs scored (58) on the Orioles so far this year.  Wieters has now played in 654 games in his first five years with the Orioles and he is 595 of 2,340 (.254 avg, .738 OPS) with 269 runs scored, 86 homers, 325 RBIs and 6 stolen bases.  Wieters has won 2 Gold Gloves and he has been an A.L. All-Star two times so far for the Orioles.

Chris Tillman is turning into the ace of the rotation for the Baltimore Orioles in 2013 http://baltimore.bloglockers.com/orioles/2013/09/13/chris-tillman-is-turning-into-the-ace-of-the-rotation-for-the-baltimore-orioles-in-2013/ http://baltimore.bloglockers.com/orioles/2013/09/13/chris-tillman-is-turning-into-the-ace-of-the-rotation-for-the-baltimore-orioles-in-2013/#comments Fri, 13 Sep 2013 14:55:55 +0000 joelapinski http://baltimore.bloglockers.com/orioles/?p=1113 25-year old righty starting pitcher Chris Tillman has really stepped up his game in 2013, as he is becoming the Orioles’ ace of the rotation.  Tillman has pitched in 29 games (all starts) for the O’s so far this year and he is 16-5 with a 3.66 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP.  Tillman has given up 158 hits and 62 walks while whiffing 153 batters in his first 179 1/3 innings this year, which has been impressive.  He even made his first All-Star team this year.  Tillman has now pitched in 80 games (all starts) in his first five years in the majors and he is 32-23 with a 4.30 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP.

UPDATE:  (9/5/2013) - The Orioles have outrighted Taylor Teagarden to AAA.
