Orioles Believe Pat Connaughton Has MLB Future

The Baltimore Orioles are still hopeful 2014 fourth-round pick Pat Connaughton could make a move to Major League Baseball after spending the last two years with the Portland Trail Blazers in the NBA.

"The Orioles believe he has a good future in baseball," Orioles vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette said, according to the Baltimore Sun's Jon Meoli. "He's a terrific athlete, has a world of talent. A good competitor. So whenever he wants to apply his skills full time, I think he...

Notes on Jimenez, Asher, Verrett and more - School of Roch

Ubaldo Jimenez is tentatively scheduled to make his start Sunday afternoon against the Astros in Houston. Whether he actually takes the mound remains in question.

Buck on the next Ubaldo start: “We’ll see where we are when we get there”

Ubaldo Jimenez is scheduled for his next Orioles start on Sunday, but manager Buck Showalter allowed for other possibilities in his Wednesday pre-game remarks.

The patience of Orioles fans with Ubaldo Jimenez seems to have finally run out after his Tuesday meltdown, in which he was handed leads of 5-0 and 6-2 and not only could he not hold them before getting blasted out of the game, he couldn’t finish more than four innings plus a few batters.

It’s starting to seem like O’s fans...

MLB Draft 2017: Reviewing the Orioles 2013 draft, four years later

The Orioles 2013 draft class looked better before all of Hunter Harvey’s injuries, but with a couple of later-round successes, the draft class isn’t a complete whiff.

Draft time rolling around was a nice diversion back in the bad Orioles years. Those teams were nearly always heading for the toilet even by early June, and so you could look at the draft and imagine the Orioles getting some top talent who proved to be great in the future. That’s how they got Matt Wieters, Brian Matusz,...

Hyun Soo Kim deserves a bigger role on the Orioles

The outfielder has become a forgotten man on a team that can use his skillset.

For the second season in a row, outfielder Hyun Soo Kim has been relegated to bench duty for an Orioles team that desperately needs his on-base ability. Instead of giving Kim a well-earned regular spot in the lineup, manager Buck Showalter has preferred to hand playing time to less proven and less deserving players with questionable skillsets.

Deja vu all over again

Orioles prospects 5/22: More losses for everyone

The Norfolk Tides were off last night, which means they didn’t lose! Everyone else did, though.

Hartford Yard Goats (COL) 7, Bowie Baysox 3

David Hess had a rough start in what has been a rough season for him so far. In just 4 1?3 innings, Hess gave up five runs on nine hits. He only walked one, but that didn’t help him all that much. His season ERA now sits at 5.09. The other two runs in the game were surrendered by Jason Garcia, who is also sporting an ERA just over 5.

On offense,...

Tuesday Bird Droppings: Where you don’t have to watch Ubaldo pitch today

It’s Buck Showalter’s birthday today, so hopefully the Orioles present him with a win. In today’s links, the Jimenez dilemma, a forgotten draft pick resurfaces, and more.

Hello, friends.

Things are feeling awfully grim today after getting the unabridged Ubaldo Jimenez experience - and subsequent Tyler Wilson and Stefan Crichton experiences - in Monday’s ridiculous loss to the Twins. If you missed it, you’re lucky, but make sure to check out Stacey’s rundown of the not-so-lovely...

Orioles Defense: Outfield Gains Countered by Infield

The Orioles have a reputation, particularly in Baltimore, of being a relatively solid defensive team.  True, discussion lingers about woeful corner outfield defense, Jones getting older, and various breakdowns here or there in the infield.  However, the club carries a reputation of being solid when out on the field.  However, most of that reputation appears to have been earned from several seasons ago and carried, by and large, by Manny Machado's inebriatingly awesome feats at third...

Adam Jones on the lost leads and Ubaldo Jimenez on his outing - Steve Melewski

Orioles center fielder Adam Jones said it was a loss. It was a lost game like other losses and the score could have been 5-3 or 7-6, he said. But this was one where the Orioles worked out to a 5-0 lead in the second tonight and watched another lead ... Read More

Orioles embarrassed by Twins, lose 14-7

The pitching was terrible. It was so, so bad.

Tonight the Orioles faced Kyle Gibson, a pitcher who came into the game with an 8.20 ERA. After five innings he departed the game having given up six runs and with an ERA of 8.62. AND HE GOT THE WIN.

How did he get the win, you ask? How on earth was it possible? Well, I have a two-part answer for you. Part one is this: Ubaldo Jimenez. Part two? Tyler Wilson. The two combined to give up 12 runs in just 5 1?3 innings.

When people say that a game...

Adam Jones sets the all-time Oriole Park at Camden Yards home run record

Adam Jones tied the all-time record on Sunday, and now it’s official: No one has ever hit more home runs at Camden Yards than him.

Jones tied the record with his 124th career Camden Yards home run on Sunday...
