Orioles-Diamondbacks series preview: We still miss Adam Jones

The Orioles will get to see an old friend and his .500 team in this series.

The way the most recent baseball offseason shook out, two recent longtime Orioles signed out in the NL West. We already had our reunion with Manny Machado a month ago when the O’s play the Padres. The series out in Arizona starting tonight represents another big reunion, with Adam Jones on the Diamondbacks.

I still miss Jones. I know why he’s not on the team this year...

Orioles minor league recap 7/22: DJ Stewart and Ryan Mountcastle keep on hitting

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports

It was a bright day for Orioles prospects up and down the farm system.

Norfolk Coffee 4, Lehigh Valley IronPigs (Phillies) 3

After Saturday’s 12-11 slugfest, this one was a tamer affair, even though the Tides racked up nine hits. DJ Stewart supplied most of the lumber with a two-run blast in the third. Austin Hays was 1-for-4, including a double, and Ryan Mountcastle went 3-for-3 to bring up his average to .304. Jace Peterson singled twice to extend an...

Evaluating the trade market for Orioles infielder Jonathan Villar

Photo by Mitchell Layton/Getty Images

The 2019 trade deadline is approaching.

Jonathan Villar is no stranger to the trade market. The 28-year-old has been dealt three times in his professional career: from the Phillies to the Astros as part of the Roy Oswalt trade in 2010, from the Astros to the Brewers in November of 2015, and finally from the Brewers to the Orioles last summer in a swap that landed Jonathan Schoop in Milwaukee. With a little more than a week left until this summer’s...

Monday Bird Droppings: Where the Orioles face Adam Jones tonight

The face of the franchise for the past decade is now playing against them. I know. It’s weird.

Good morning, Camden Chatters.

You know, there are times when I think I’ve gotten used to this whole rebuilding process going on in Baltimore. I’ve accepted that the major league team isn’t going to be good for a while, and that they’ll be shuttling players in and out as they...

Those brave Orioles fans who braved near-100 degree heat were treated to Asher Wojciechowski no-hitting Boston through six innings.

Imagine if someone had come up to you before the start of Sunday’s game between the Orioles and the Red Sox to tell you that one team would be no-hitting the other into the seventh inning. You know what you would...

Sunday afternoon Orioles game thread: vs. Red Sox, 1:05

It’s hot out there. The Red Sox scored 17 runs off the Orioles last night and they face Asher Wojciechowski today.

The Orioles are coming off a night where they got obliterated by the Red Sox. Asher Wojciechowski is pitching. It’s expected to be so hot that the traditional post-game kids run the bases has already been cancelled. To those choosing to attend today’s game, we salute you from our air conditioned locations.

The afternoon’s game will see...

Orioles designate out-of-options Keon Broxton for assignment

The Orioles announced on Sunday that they’ve designated outfielder Keon Broxton for assignment. Right-handed reliever Branden Kline is up from Triple-A Norfolk to take Broxton’s place on the active roster. So continues a lost season for the 29-year-old Broxton, who enters DFA limbo for the second time in three months. A former third-round draft choice of the Diamondbacks, Broxton was most famous for his time in Milwaukee, where he totaled 796 plate appearances between 2016 and 2018,...

Orioles minor league recap 7/21: Adley Rutschman debuts! And homers!

It’s all happening!

Normally we start these minor league recaps with Triple-A Norfolk and work our way down the organizational ladder. But today, I’m starting all the way at the bottom with the Gulf Coast League Orioles. Because, ladies and gentlemen, Adley Rutschman took the field for the first time as a professional.

The Birds’ No. 1 prospect,...

Sunday Bird Droppings: Where it’s Hall of Fame Day

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

The Orioles are well represented in today’s HOF ceremony, Tato is getting the job done with the bat, and more in today’s Bird Droppings.

Happy Sunday, Camden Chatters! I hope you are staying cool during this heat wave. I originally had tickets to today’s game, but had to trade them in. I was willing to withstand the Red Sox fans, a likely loss, and seeing Andrew Cashner shut down the team he was a member of a week ago. But heat index up to 111? I’m...

Orioles allow five home runs, get crushed 17-6 by Red Sox

How bad did things get? O’s utility man Stevie Wilkerson had to throw two innings.

Welp, that was kind of a bummer. The Orioles pitching staff got beat up on Saturday night as the Red Sox evened the weekend series at one game apiece with a 17-6 win at Camden Yards.

Tom Eshelman is probably a lovely man, who cares for his family and contributes to his community. But he had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day as the Orioles starter in this...

Saturday night Orioles game thread: vs Red Sox, 7:05

The Orioles look to clinch a series win over the division rival Red Sox.

These Orioles are tough to watch sometimes, but they have been pretty fun over the last two games. Another win tonight will make it three victories in a row and will clinch a series win over the division rival Red Sox. The members of the fan base that are rooting for the O’s to “earn” the top pick in the 2020 draft may be disappointed by this development, but let us have this...

Watch: Orioles' No. 1 pick Adley Rutschman launches HR in minors debut

Just over a month after being drafted with the No. 1 pick by the Baltimore Orioles, catcher Adley Rutschman quickly showed on Saturday why he is already among the best prospects in baseball. In his first minor league game, Rutschman launched a home run that soared over the wall and left no one in attendance questioning the catcher’s massive power even at an early stage of his career. Already ranked as the fifth-best prospect in MLB by Baseball America, Rutschman quickly left an impression...

Orioles minor league recap 7/20: Hays continues his hot-hitting ways in Norfolk

Austin Hays helped the Tides score nine runs, while the Baysox and Shorebirds scored big in their victories too.

Norfolk Tides 9, Lehigh Valley IronPigs 7

The Tides overcame some adversity to out-slug the IronPigs by a score of 9-7 on Friday night. Starter Luis Ysla gave up seven runs on 10 hits and one walk in only three innings. His ERA ballooned to 6.25 in the process. But Sean Gilmartin and Taylor Scott pitched a combined six scoreless innings...

Saturday’s Bird Droppings: Where it’s Pedro Severino’s birthday

The O’s are playing some good baseball, and one of their catchers is another year older.

Good morning, Birdland!

OK, I will admit that I had a lot of fun watching the Orioles beat the Red Sox 11-2 last night. They hit a few massive home runs, Richie Martin put on a one-man show, John Means looked like an all-star again, the bullpen was impressive and, best of all, the Red Sox were terrible.

Another win today would make it three...

Orioles offensive outburst leads to 11-2 win over Red Sox

Santander went deep, Martin did it all and Means was steady on the mound.

Might the Orioles actually be able to play a significant spoiler role in this year’s pennant race? It’s a tad early to tell, but as long as they beat the Red Sox with some regularity, I think we can all be happy. They did their part on Friday with an 11-2 victory over the visiting Red Sox.

It’s like the old saying goes, if you can’t stand the heat then don’t pitch in a Major...

Jace Peterson re-signs in Baltimore mere days after opting out of Orioles contract

The Orioles’ top affiliate announced on Friday that Jace Peterson is back in the organization on a minors deal. He had recently opted out of his prior minor league pact. While he went searching for a better opportunity elsewhere, the 29-year-old Peterson obviously was unable to find one. He hasn’t yet received a chance to appear at the MLB level this year in Baltimore. Over 360 plate appearances this season at Triple-A, he’s slashing a productive .309/.394/.505 with nine long balls...

Friday Night Orioles Victory GIF Party: O’s bash Red Sox, 11-2

It is Friday night. The Orioles pounded the heck out of the Red Sox. You know what must be done.

It is Friday night.

The Orioles have crushed the Red Sox by an 11-2 score. All-Star John Means gave up just two runs on four hits in six innings. The O’s offense exploded for 14 hits, with every batter in the starting lineup collecting a hit. Anthony Santander put the O’s ahead for good with a three-run home run, and later, Richie Martin got a Little League...
