Zach Wilt: Breaking down Jonathan Schoop's struggles at the plate - Orioles Buzz

Jonathan Schoop took a huge step forward at the plate for the Orioles last season. The second baseman earned his first trip to the All-Star Game and slashed .293/.338/.503 while totaling a team-high 3.8 fWAR (5.2 on Baseball-Reference.com). Schoop was 25, turning 26 in October, and chatter began about him ... Read More

Orioles-Rays series preview: The road trip ends in Florida

The O’s make their first visit to Tropicana Field this season to face off against the Rays and their unconventional pitching strategy.

Alternate headline: Orioles are so bad that opponent doesn’t bother using starting pitchers against them. More on that later.

After splitting a four game series in Chicago’s south side, the 16-34 O’s will conclude their three-city road trip in Tampa Bay with three games against the Rays. They are 3-5 on the trip (not bad considering their overall...

In Davis/Palmer drama, the Orioles season spirals into a soap opera

The 2018 Orioles were a comedy. They’re now turning into a soap opera.

If you were looking for a distraction to take your attention away from the on-field product being put forth by the 16-34 Orioles, you got your wish. The best pitcher in Orioles history publicly calling out the owner of the largest contract in Orioles history may not be what you had in mind, but it’s what we’re dealing with. And you thought things couldn’t get any worse for the 2018 Orioles!

By now, most O’s fans...

Orioles minors recap 5/25: Another clean sweep on the farm

Four games, four wins. That’s not a bad night of baseball.

Norfolk Tides 5, Charlotte Knights 4 (f/10)

The Knights out-hit Norfolk by a handful of hits, but the Tides weren’t to be stopped, even in extras. D.J. Stewart and Mike Yastrzemski both went deep on Thursday, while Renato Nunez was the only hitter to post a multi-hit game with a pair of singles.

Jhan Marinez got the start and tossed three innings of shutout baseball. He allowed three hits, walked none and struck out three. Both...

Friday Bird Droppings: Where there’s drama with the Orioles

Even when the O’s win big, there seems to be some sort of ugliness going on. The flap between Jim Palmer, Chris Davis, and Scott Coolbaugh reached a fever pitch on Thursday.

Good morning, Camden Chatters.

The four-game series between the Orioles and White Sox was resolved in a manner most befitting the two worst teams in baseball: with each team losing multiple games. They split the series, 2-2, which for the Orioles was their first non-losing series since taking three of four at Yankee...

Baltimore Orioles: prospect watch in the minors

The Baltimore Orioles are clearly having a difficult season, and some major changes may be occurring over the next year in Baltimore. To replace traded players or veterans that sign with other teams between now and the start of next season, the Orioles will likely play a lot more of their young prospects that are the future for the Orioles. If the Orioles trade stars like Manny Machado or Mark Trumbo, they will add even more prospects to their farm system. Here are a few players having great...

Epstein: Machado speculation “in fantasy land at this point”

There’s been plenty of buzz about the Orioles’ poor start to the season and the impending free agency of Manny Machado, with seemingly countless reports connecting Machado to various teams throughout the league. The Cubs have been perhaps the most oft-cited match for Machado, but in a radio appearance on the Mully & Hanley show on 670 The Score, president of baseball operations Theo Epstein scoffed at the very notion that there’s any serious market taking shape for Machado at such an...

Bundy K's 14 in CG gem as O's bats wake up

The Orioles' offense roared to life early, scoring nine runs through three innnings to support Dylan Bundy, who struck out a career-high 14 in his second career complete game. After Baltimore scored four in the first off White Sox starter Lucas Giolito, Trey Mancini and Adam Jones opened the second with back-to-back homers. Bundy held Chicago to two hits, though he allowed a three-run homer to Jose Rondon.

Each MLB team's hottest bat so far

Whether we’re talking about the best team in the league, the worst, or any of the 28 in between, each MLB team has one hitter whose bat has been at least a little hotter than his teammates.Obviously, figuring out who the hottest hitter on some teams has been is a difficult task. The Atlanta Braves have hit very well. Choosing between Freddie Freeman, Ozzie Albies or Nick Markakis was not easy. While the Kansas City Royals have been nowhere near as hot offensively, we had a similar dilemma...

Dylan Bundy twirls complete game gem as Orioles trash White Sox, 9-3

Dylan Bundy set a new career high in strikeouts with 14 as he dominated the White Sox in a complete game. The O’s offense jumped over wild Sox pitchers to power the team to a 9-3 win.

As drama swirled around Chris Davis and what work he is or isn’t doing to try to improve his disastrous season, the Orioles were in dire need of a game where they could knock the stuffing out of somebody to get people talking about anybody else. That is exactly what they got on Thursday afternoon, smoking...

Chris Davis ‘disappointed’ at Orioles legend’s criticisms of him

Chris Davis is pounding his glove after what Baltimore Orioles legend Jim Palmer had to say about him earlier this week.During an on-air segment for MASN Sports on Wednesday, Palmer, who now works as a color commentator for the team, tore into the slumping Davis. In his remarks, Palmer called out Davis for failing to make adjustments at the plate and said that the former MLB home runs leader was “killing this team.” On Thursday, Davis took an opportunity to respond to Palmer’s...

Chance Sisco’s had a weird year thus far

While he’s actually been OK behind the plate, Sisco’s bat has lagged somewhat. It’s all very strange.

Amazingly, despite the best of intentions, I have already entered the part of the year where Orioles games are not being watched in their entirety.

A season ago, I hit the wall around early September, when the Orioles finished the year 7-21. Like the Orioles, I limped down the stretch before shutting it down. Now, all it takes is Alex Cobb serving up one three-run bomb before the gut...

Orioles minor league recap 5/24: Lowther impresses again, Frederick’s offense erupts

All four of the O’s affiliates won! Some did so in ridiculous fashion.

Norfolk Tides 6, Charlotte Knights (White Sox) 3

It was another steady start for Tim Melville. The righty delivered six innings, giving up three runs (two earned) on seven hits, two walks and five strikeouts. He was unable to get the win, however, because he left the game when it was tied 3-3. Joely Rodriguez would be the beneficiary of the Tides late scoring, and he earned it with 2.1 scoreless innings out of the...

With the Orioles a mess at third base, when should it be Ryan Mountcastle time?

With their season continually looking grim, the Orioles would be well served to promote the team’s No. 2 prospect, Ryan Mountcastle.

With the exception of Manny Machado, the Orioles’ infield has provided inadequate offense so far this season. Both injuries and poor play have been factors.

The Orioles recently showed their willingness to make a big change when they demoted catcher Caleb Joseph to the minor leagues. So now it’s time to make another drastic move to help the infield: call...
