Orioles prospect Lucas Humpal talks impressive year at Delmarva

This week, we talked with Delmarva Shorebirds pitcher Lucas Humpal about his first full season in the Orioles system.

This week, Orioles prospect Lucas Humpal took a few minutes to chat with us about his 2017 season, one that has been quietly building toward a very respectable campaign once it’s all wrapped up.

On the year, Humpal has made 23 starts and tossed 140 innings, keeping his ERA at a very steady 3.92. In those innings, he’s allowed 138 hits but has walked just 30 batters, a...

Dillon Atkinson: Since break, Mancini and Machado have flipped offensive production - Orioles Buzz

Prior to the All-Star break, Orioles left fielder Trey Mancini looked like he was Rookie of the Year-worthy, if not for Yankees' Aaron Judge posting Most Valuable Player caliber numbers. The 25-year-old rookie posted a .312/.354/.538 slash line with 14 homers and a 133 wRC+. Orioles superstar Manny Machado was ... Read More

The Orioles starting rotation that could have been

It is no secret that the Orioles starting rotation is bad. They could have had a better one, if not for a series of moves over the last several seasons.

The Orioles starting rotation has been terrible in 2017. They are sporting a 5.63 ERA, which does not include last night’s game. That remains the worst ERA in the American League and the second worst in baseball, behind only the Cincinnati Reds.

The starting rotation has been the Orioles’ Achilles heel for the past several seasons. In...

Orioles prospects 8/22: A night full of highlights

Chance Sisco, DJ Stewart and Cedric Mullins all go deep. Hunter Harvey throws three scoreless. Pitching was in short supply Tuesday night.

All five O’s main minor league teams were at home Tuesday night, as was the big club. Across the Mid-Atlantic region, lots to take in for fans of the orange and black. And as far as trends, pitching for the home teams was a struggle most everywhere.

Wednesday Bird Droppings: Where the Orioles still can't win two in a row

In a surprising development, it's hard to win when your starting rotation is bad. In today's links, Buck's standing by the veterans, the Boogs Powell meetup, and more.

Hello, friends.

Another day has dawned with the Orioles in fourth place in the American League East. They are now 11.5 games behind the division-leading Red Sox, a fact I mentioned mostly for completion's sake rather than any expectation that they are going to still do something about that.

More significantly, the Orioles are...

Bundy rested and Orioles expect him to be ready - School of Roch

Dylan Bundy is preparing today for his 24th start of the season, ranking him third on the club behind Kevin Gausman (27) and Wade Miley (26). It hasn't been a level playing field for Bundy, whose gone extended stretches between outings. Manager Buck Showalter wants to provide extra rest for ... Read More

Oakland Tops the Orioles 6-4 in Disappointing Loss

Trailing 5-0 early Baltimore made it a game, but Ubaldo Jimenez’s shaky start and missed chances to score late spell doom    

Despite the ups and downs of a long season, with 37 games to go on the schedule, Baltimore (61-64) entered Tuesday 3.5 games behind the second Wild Card leading Minnesota Twins. Channeling Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber – “So you’re telling me there’s a chance? Yeeeaaaa!”

Tuesday night Orioles game thread: vs. Athletics, 7:05

The Orioles haven’t won two games in a row since concluding a sweep on August 2. Maybe Ubaldo Jimenez can help them change that against the Athletics tonight.

At this point, there’s not much that’s new to say about the 2017 Orioles on a daily basis. Who they are today is still who they were yesterday and who they were last month and the month before that too. Only a lengthy winning streak that they may not be capable of pulling off could change that in any meaningful way.

Still, here...

Don’t expect the Orioles to make major additions in the offseason

A very similar-looking team will be donning the black and orange next summer

The 2017 Baltimore Orioles are a team with some evident flaws. But when the club refused to sell their stars at the non-waiver trade deadline at the end of July, it became quite clear that they were preparing to re-tool for 2018. Several big contracts will be coming off the books this winter, allowing the O’s to dive into the free agent and trade markets full bore, right? Nah, probably not.

Orioles prospects 8/21: Alex Wells is marvelous again

Four Orioles affiliates were in action on Monday night. Three of them lost and only one scored more than two runs. On the bright side, Alex Wells was good again.

Charlotte (White Sox) 4, Norfolk Tides 2

Despite out-hitting the Knights by a 10-4 margin, the Tides were losers in the game. They went 3-13 with RISP and still managed to score only two runs, and they left 11 men on base. Sometimes that's just the way it goes.

Starting pitcher Jayson Aquino ran into trouble in the fifth inning,...

No eclipse today, unless the Orioles win and pass some people in the standings. In today's links, the O's get another Player of the Week, the Boogs meet, and more.

Hello, friends.

Another day has dawned with the Orioles in third place in the American League East. They're now 10.5 games behind the division-leading Red Sox. More importantly, though, they are 3.5 games behind both the Twins for the second wild card spot, with a total of five teams still to pass.
