Orioles | Pedro Alvarez sitting vs. Oakland

Fri, 06 May 2016 12:38:56 -0700

Baltimore Orioles DH Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 6. OF Nolan Reimold is starting in left field and batting sixth against Oakland Athletics SP Rich Hill Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Reimold is 8-for-24 with a .542 slugging percentage against left-handed hurlers this season, but Hill has performed well of late and limited opponents to a .219/.314/.295 slash line over his past five outings. View Reimold as a risky option in all fantasy formats Friday. Alvarez is quickly losing all his fantasy luster and sits with a .196 batting average and a single home run for the campaign.

Orioles | No Matt Wieters vs. Oakland

Fri, 06 May 2016 12:31:17 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 6. C Caleb Joseph is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Oakland Athletics SP Rich Hill Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph is nothing more than a desperation start in all fantasy formats Friday, as he has posted an underwhelming .189/.268/.216 slash line to start the season. However, Wieters hasn't been significantly better with just five runs, a home run, eight RBI and a .234/.300/.313 line. Wieters should be benched and potentially replaced in shallow mixed leagues.

Athletics | Danny Valencia starting vs. Orioles

Fri, 06 May 2016 12:04:42 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia (hamstring) was activated from the disabled list and is starting at third base and batting seventh against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez Friday, May 6.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia's a low-end starter in deep mixed and AL-only formats, but he does handle the bat well with a .290/.345/.497 slash line dating back to the beginning of last season. If you've got capable options, it isn't out of the question to give him a game or two to shake off the rust before returning him to starting lineups. Chris Coghlan projects to be the biggest victim in terms of playing time with Valencia back in the fold. Limit your exposure to Coghlan to cavernous mixed and AL-only formats.

Orioles | Kevin Gausman impressive Thursday

Thu, 05 May 2016 19:16:46 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman allowed three hits and struck out four batters over eight scoreless innings in a victory over the New York Yankees Thuesday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: Gausman has allowed just three earned runs over 19 innings this season and has a favorable matchup in his next scheduled outing versus the Minnesota Twins Tuesday, May 10. He should be viewed as a solid starting option in all fantasy formats.

Orioles | Zach Britton credited with win

Thu, 05 May 2016 19:11:34 -0700

Baltimore Orioles RP Zach Britton (ankle) struck out three batters in 1 1/3 scoreless innings in a victory over the New York Yankees Wednesday, May 5, with no hits allowed and just one walk. He improved to 2-1 on the season with the win.

Fantasy Tip: It was Britton's first appearance since he injured his left ankle in a game versus the Chicago White Sox Saturday, April 30. He should be viewed as one of the top closers in baseball going forward.

Orioles | Zach Britton close to returning to mound

Thu, 05 May 2016 13:53:28 -0700

Baltimore Orioles RP Zach Britton (ankle) is "very close" to being available to pitch, manager Buck Showalter said Thursday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: Britton could pitch as early as Thursday, and you can expect him back on the bump by the weekend. Unless you're overflowing with quality relievers, you'll want to keep Britton in your starting lineups. Dating back to 2014, Britton has 79 saves with a 1.84 ERA, a 0.93 WHIP and a 9.1 K/9. He is pushing for membership among the elite fantasy closers.

Orioles | Joey Rickard takes a seat

Thu, 05 May 2016 12:37:34 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Joey Rickard is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 5. OF Hyun-soo Kim is starting in left field and is batting sixth against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka.

Fantasy Tip: Kim has been a bench player so far for the O's, but he's excelled in that role (nine hits in 15 at-bats, .600). With that said, there's not a whole lot to like in daily formats for the Korean import facing off against Tanaka. Consider Kim a low-end sleeper selection.

Orioles | GM thinks Adam Jones is still hurt

Thu, 05 May 2016 12:10:33 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones (shoulder) is struggling because he is still hurt, general manager Dan Duquette said Thursday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: Jones missed a stretch of games with a shoulder injury early in the season and is just 14-for-68 (.206 batting average) through the 18 games since. He also has an underwhelming .593 OPS. Given the recent results of the typically reliable Jones, there is likely a lot of truth to Duquette's suggestion. Stay tuned for updates, but as it stands, it isn't out of the question to bench Jones if you have a suitable replacement.

Orioles | Another two-hit game for Manny Machado

Wed, 04 May 2016 21:44:36 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles Wednesday, May 4, against the New York Yankees to push his hitting streak to six games.

Fantasy Tip: Machado is 11-for-24 (.458) during his six-game run, and he five multi-hit games during the span. He continues to mash, and is a must-start in all fantasy formats and a great DFS play as well.

Orioles | Adam Jones slumping hard

Wed, 04 May 2016 21:43:41 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones was hitless in three at-bats with a walk, strikeout and he grounded into a double play Wednesday, May 4, against the New York Yankees to drop his average to .205. "Good hitters with good track records and things that he's done for us, someone will pay," manager Buck Showalter said. "He's a little frustrated by it, but I know Adam. He's gone through some periods like a lot of good hitters do and he'll get it going. He'll get it going."

Fantasy Tip: Jones is slumping hard, but he remains a must-start fantasy option for the reasons Showalter said. Jones will get it going, and that usually comes at the expense of left-handed pitching.

Orioles | Mike Wright used in relief

Wed, 04 May 2016 21:43:08 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Mike Wright threw 13 pitches in relief in the ninth inning Wednesday, May 4, against the New York Yankees. However, he is still expected to start Saturday, May 7, against the Oakland Athletics. Wright's inning of relief amounts to a glorified side session.

Fantasy Tip: Wright is a solid play in some AL-only fantasy leagues and DFS play when the matchup is favorable.

Orioles | Zach Britton tests ankle

Wed, 04 May 2016 12:30:57 -0700

Baltimore Orioles RP Zach Britton (ankle) threw 10 pitches in the bullpen Wednesday, May 4, and felt good. He is unsure when he'll be cleared to pitch.

Fantasy Tip: Britton plans to wear a brace on his ankle when he returns to action, which could be any day now. Keep him in all starting lineups. Darren O'Day recorded the save in Britton's absence last night, but with Britton expected to return soon, O'Day will return to his eighth-inning setup role.

Orioles | Matt Wieters, Pedro Alvarez out

Wed, 04 May 2016 12:05:59 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters and 1B Pedro Alvarez are not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees left-handed SP CC Sabathia Wednesday, May 4. OF Nolan Reimold draws into the lineup in left field and is batting sixth, while C Caleb Joseph is behind the plate and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Reimold is having a fine year so far (.343, three home runs), and he has seven hits in 20 at-bats, including one home run, against southpaws in 2016. He's certainly one to consider as a low-priced flier in daily formats. Joseph is barely over the Mendoza Line and is a desperation DFS pick.

Orioles | Darren O'Day converts save No. 2

Tue, 03 May 2016 21:57:02 -0700

Baltimore Orioles RP Darren O'Day worked around a single allowed in a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday, May 3, against the New York Yankees to pick up his second save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: O'Day will get his chance in the ninth inning with CL Zach Britton on the shelf with an ankle injury. He is a decent short-term fantasy option in AL-only fantasy formats.
