Baltimore Orioles news, rumors and injuries
Wed, 27 May 2015 18:11:04 -0700
Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez allowed a season-high 10 hits Wednesday, May 27, against the Houston Astros. Jimenez allowed one walk and four runs over seven innings, managing to strikeout five hitters.
Fantasy Tip: Jimenez ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has allowed at least six hits in five consecutive starts. The strikeouts have been there for Jimenez, but he poses a lot of risk on FantasyScore, while allowing so many base runners.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has homered in two of his last three games. AL-only or deep, mixed league owners should be looking at Pearce once again. FantasyScore owners can give some consideration to Pearce against left-handed pitchers.

Fantasy Tip: Paredes ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) stole just his third base of the season. Paredes has back-to-back multi-hit games and four of them in his last six games. Although his price has been on the rise, Paredes continues to be an excellent FantasyScore option.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) ended a 13-game homer-less drought, and he had hit just three doubles in that stretch. Davis continues to strikeout at a high rate, and he's a boom or bust FantasyScore option. Owners should be staying away, as the booms have been few and far between.

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters (elbow) said he felt really good after going 2-for-4 in his first rehab game with Class AA Bowie Tuesday, May 26. Wieters also threw out a runner in the game. He'll catch again for Bowie Thursday, May 28, and Saturday, May 30, before the team decides where he'll continue his rehab. Barring a setback, Wieters is expected to return to the Orioles sometime late next week. However, it'll be a while before he'll be ready to catch on back-to-back days.
Fantasy Tip: Wieters ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) could be an immediate boost to fantasy teams, especially since his injury doesn't affect his hitting much at all. He could also be a great value play upon his return at FantasyScore. Caleb Joseph ($3,900, 7.8% of cap), who has filled in nicely with Wieters out, could continue to be serviceable in your daily lineups on the days when Wieters is resting.

Baltimore Orioles SP Dylan Bundy's (shoulder) MRI exam confirmed the initial diagnosis of right shoulder tendonitis, according to executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette. The MRI showed some inflammation but no structural damage, and Bundy has been prescribed rest and anti-inflammatory medication. He last pitched May 21 as the team continues to monitor his innings. Bundy is 0-3 with a 3.68 ERA and 25 strikeouts in 22 innings at Class AA Bowie this year.
Fantasy Tip: Bundy is one of the team's top pitching prospects, but he's been set back by various injuries in his young professional career. With the O's being cautious with Bundy's workload this season, it's unlikely that he'll have a major impact at the major league level until 2016. He might be worth stashing in deeper keeper or dynasty formats.

Fantasy Tip: As is the case with any injuries, you may want to see how Flaherty ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) does before you activate him fully.
Wed, 27 May 2015 13:09:11 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Young ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) looks like he is out for a regular night off. Remove him from your lineup for tonight. Pearce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has two homers and a .211 average in the past week, which is a mixed bag of results. He may be priced a bit too high.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) won't be available at FantasyScore tomorrow for the second game. Wilson will be as cheap as pitchers come tomorrow against the Chicago White Sox, but you should look to avoid him. Wilson was 2-4 with a 3.29 ERA and 32 strikeouts in 41 innings (eight starts) for Class AAA Norfolk this year.

Fantasy Tip: With De Aza out of the picture, it opens up more playing time for Travis Snider ($2,900, 5.8% of cap), David Lough ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) and Steve Pearce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) in left field. It could become a platoon situation between Snider and Pearce, however. Stay tuned. All three outfielders are strictly matchup plays at FantasyScore for the time being.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) likely will need several rehab games before he is able to return to the Orioles. Owners on FantasyScore should see how he plays in a few games when he returns before considering him an option in their lineups.
Tue, 26 May 2015 20:39:26 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Paredes ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has been a nice surprise for fantasy owners early in the season. He is hitting .315 with 16 RBI so far this month. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using Paredes against most matchups.

Baltimore Orioles OF Steve Pearce is starting at second base and hitting fifth in the batting order against Houston Astros SP Scott Feldman Tuesday, May 26. 2B Everth Cabrera is starting on the bench.
Fantasy Tip: Pearce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is hitting just .188 (9-for-48) with three home runs and 10 RBI in May, but righties have an .883 OPS against Feldman in 2015. After Pearce went deep last night, he might be worth it as a sleeper pick at FantasyScore tonight.
Tue, 26 May 2015 12:18:10 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Snider ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is likely out because the Astros have righthander Scott Feldman on the mound. Lough ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has two hits in five at-bats in the past week, so he may be worth a low-cost flier.
Tue, 26 May 2015 11:51:18 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hardy ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) missed some time recently due to other injuries, so his owners can breathe again. Let him work out the kinks in his back for a game or so before you move him into your lineup.
