Orioles | Delmon Young designated for assignment

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 15:19:47 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Delmon Young was designated for assignment Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: This is a huge blow to Young's ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) already diminished fantasy stock. He is only worth holding in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, although even there, he is nothing more than a desperation stash. The move helps Nolan Reimold's ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) value, as he projects to receive the majority of starts against left-handed pitchers going forward.

Orioles | Matt Wieters out Wednesday

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 12:37:23 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 1. C Caleb Joseph is behind the plate and is hitting eighth against Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) hit just .196 (9-for-46) with a home run and three RBI in June, but a struggling Martinez could be just what he needs to get on track. For what it's worth, Joseph has also hit much better at home this year. Consider him a sleeper catching play tonight.

Orioles | Manny Machado homers, extends streak

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 21:12:52 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Tuesday, June 30, against the Texas Rangers to push his hitting streak to 12 games.

Fantasy Tip: Machado ($6,000; or 12.0% of cap) has hit .412 (21-for-51) with nine runs scored, three homers and 11 RBIs during his 12-game run.

Orioles | Chris Davis pair of homers

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 21:12:09 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Chris Davis went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and four RBIs Tuesday, June 30, against the Texas Rangers. Davis has nine career multi-homer games, including two this season.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($4,500; or 9.0% of cap) has hit safely in 10 straight games, hitting .351 (13-for-37) with four homers, 10 RBIs and eight runs scored. He is an obvious must-start in FantasyScore while running hot.

Orioles | Jonathan Schoop staying in minors

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 13:42:36 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 2B Jonathan Schoop (knee) will rehab with Class A Frederick this week.

Fantasy Tip: Schoop ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is nearing the end of his rehab window, and he could come off the DL to join the Orioles later this week. Expect him to see plenty of starts at second base when he's back, hurting the fantasy value of Ryan Flaherty ($1,800, 3.6% of cap). Schoop is more attractive to owners in deep mixed and AL-only leagues and has more offensive upside than Flaherty.

Orioles | Travis Snider starting Tuesday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 13:08:57 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Travis Snider is starting in left field and hitting eighth against Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Snider ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is actually hitting better against lefties (.313) than righties (.259) this year, but he has all three of his home runs against right-handers, and Lewis has struggled in his career against the O's. Camden Yards is a hitter's park, too, making Snider an intriguing sleeper play on FantasyScore.

Orioles | Bud Norris ties career worst

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 21:34:46 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Bud Norris was golfed around for five runs and nine hits over six innings Monday, June 29, against the Texas Rangers, and he matched a career worst by serving up four home runs.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,800; or 7.6% of cap) cannot be trusted in FantasyScore. He has slipped to 2-7 with a 6.79 ERA, and he could be in danger of losing his spot in the rotation.

Orioles | Bad news on Dylan Bundy

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 17:50:58 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Dylan Bundy (shoulder) remains shut down indefinitely, and he might not pitch again this season. The team might aim for a return in the fall instructional league instead. Manager Buck Showalter said Monday, June 29, that surgery has not been discussed, and there aren't any plans for Bundy to have a platelet-rich plasma injection, but everything is subject to change.

Fantasy Tip: Bundy was considered one of the top pitching prospects in baseball, but his shoulder injury has certainly taken away from some of his luster. At this point the only fantasy players bothering with Bundy should be those in long-term keeper formats.

Orioles | Jonathan Schoop could return soon

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 17:50:09 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 2B Jonathan Schoop (knee) worked out Monday, June 29, with vice president of baseball operations Brady Anderson. Schoop might continue his rehab assignment with Class A Frederick rather than Triple-A Norfolk. "I know every day that passes we feel better about Jon's recovery, so he's getting something from it. He's already had, I think Brady said, 60 plate appearances," manager Buck Showalter said.

Fantasy Tip: Schoop ($2,100; or 4.2% of cap) appears to be closing in on a return at or before the July 4 holiday. Before trusting him in FantasyScore, have him play a game or two with the big club without any setbacks.

Orioles | Kevin Gausman starting Thursday

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:57:53 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman will start against the Texas Rangers Thursday, July 2. He is expected to be optioned to the minor leagues after the start so he can remain on a five-day start schedule through the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Gausman ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) projects as a high-risk, high-reward start Thursday. He allowed just two runs on four hits to the high-scoring Toronto Blue Jays in his first start of the season, though, so there is upside. Seasonal owners in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues should grab Gausman with the hope he enters the rotation full time later this season.

Orioles | Jimmy Paredes sitting out vs. Rangers

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 12:57:10 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 2B Jimmy Paredes is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 29. 2B Steve Pearce draws into the lineup at first base, and he is batting seventh against Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Paredes ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is heating back up, as he is riding a 19-for-44 stretch with 10 runs, three home runs, 10 RBI and a 1.163 OPS over his past 12 games. Pearce ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is beginning to turn the corner offensively, too, with a .357/.400/.500 slash line over his past 11 games, but he is still a huge risk for FantasyScore players.

Orioles | Delmon Young draws in vs. southpaw

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 12:49:22 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Delmon Young is playing right field and batting fifth against Texas Rangers OF Wandy Rodriguez Monday, June 29.

Fantasy Tip: While Young's ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) .309 batting average against lefties is enticing for FantasyScore players, he has just one extra-base hit and a .327 slugging percentage against them. Still, Young is worth considering as a low-priced flier Monday, especially if you're looking to tee up a few other Orioles.

Orioles | Nolan Reimold batting second

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 12:45:54 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Nolan Reimold is playing left field and batting second against Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez Monday, June 29.

Fantasy Tip: Reimold ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is a sneaky source of cap relief for FantasyScore players Monday. He has a plus-spot in the lineup, and he owns a .353/.421/.824 slash line against southpaws this season, albeit in only 19 plate appearances.

Orioles | Matt Wieters sitting vs. Texas

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 12:41:02 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 29. C Caleb Joseph is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) can be avoided in all formats Monday. He has nine runs, three home runs, 10 RBI and a .288/.316/.596 slash line over 16 games since returning from injury, and he projects to be a near-elite catcher in all fantasy formats going forward. Joseph ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has just one multi-hit game over his past 20 starts, and FantasyScore players should likely aim higher Monday.

Orioles | Adam Jones starting in center field

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 12:37:14 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones (shoulder) is starting in center field and batting third against Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez Monday, June 29.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) returned for Game 1 of the doubleheader Sunday, June 28, but sat out the night cap. He has the handedness advantage against Rodriguez, but might not be the safest FantasyScore option given the nature of his injury. View Jones as a high-risk, high-reward play Monday.
