Orioles | Everth Cabrera back from DL

Fri, 22 May 2015 14:59:16 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 2B Everth Cabrera (foot) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Friday, May 22, and the Orioles optioned 2B Rey Navarro to Class AAA Norfolk in a corresponding move. Cabrera had a slash line of .208/.240/.250 with a double, RBI and three runs in six games with Norfolk. Before going on the DL, Cabrera was hitless in his last 17 at-bats and was 5-for-37 in 11 games.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) could be in a platoon with Steve Pearce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) at second base until Jonathan Schoop returns from the DL. Cabrera can also fill in at shortstop when J.J. Hardy needs a breather. Cabrera, however, is a low-end second base play until we see him break out of his offensive funk, and limited playing time doesn't help his cause.

Orioles | Matt Wieters to rehab next Tuesday

Fri, 22 May 2015 14:51:50 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters (hamstring, elbow) will work out with the team this weekend while making throws and catching bullpens and will then head out on a rehab assignment with Class AA Bowie Tuesday, May 26. He thinks it's still realistic for him to come off the disabled list June 4, when eligible. His arm continues to get stronger, but he hasn't caught in consecutive games yet. He will play every other day at Bowie, and he's been swinging daily without pain.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) shouldn't be affected as much swinging the bat when he's back in the majors, and he could immediately become one of the better FantasyScore catchers when he's starting on a regular basis. Caleb Joseph ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has held down the fort nicely (.260-3-14), but he'll likely go back to a backup role when Wieters is ready.

Orioles | Travis Snider, Alejandro De Aza playing

Fri, 22 May 2015 14:47:04 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OFs Travis Snider and Alejandro De Aza are both in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Henderson Alvarez Friday, May 22. Snider is starting in left field and hitting fifth in the batting order, while De Aza is in right field and hitting seventh. OF Delmon Young is not starting against a right-hander.

Fantasy Tip: Snider ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) and De Aza ($2,900) have both been inconsistent offensive weapons at FantasyScore with uneven playing time in 2015. Both lefty bats have been underwhelming against right-handed pitchers, but all four of their home runs have come against that side. Playing in a pitcher-friendly venue tonight, neither should be considered anything more than dice rolls at FantasyScore.

Orioles | Jimmy Paredes playing 2B

Fri, 22 May 2015 14:40:42 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Jimmy Paredes is receiving the start at second base against Miami Marlins SP Henderson Alvarez in a National League park Friday, May 22, and he'll remain in the two-hole in the batting order. As a result, OF Steve Pearce is not in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Paredes ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been one of the O's most reliable hitters this year (.342-6-23) in 111 at-bats. Even though he'll be taking hacks in a pitcher's park, he's facing a hurler that's only striking out 3.6 hitters per nine innings in 2015. Also, Paredes has dominated righties this year, going 32-for-92 (.348) against them with all six of his home runs. He remains a strong FantasyScore pick.

Marlins | Christian Yelich sitting vs. Orioles

Fri, 22 May 2015 12:47:05 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich is not in the starting lineup against the Baltimore Orioles Friday, May 22. OF Ichiro Suzuki is batting seventh and playing left field Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been an utter disappointment to date, and through 99 plate appearances, he has just three extra-base hits and a .236 slugging percentage. While there is plenty of upside for Yelich, desperate fantasy owners in shallow formats should at least explore alternative options. Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) offers little upside in all fantasy formats, and he should be viewed as nothing more than a source of cap relief by FantasyScore players.

Orioles | Steve Pearce back in homer column

Thu, 21 May 2015 16:33:31 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Steve Pearce hit his first career grand slam in a winning effort Thursday, May 21. It was his fourth home run of the season and second since April 7. He finished the game 1-for-3 with a run, four RBI and a walk, and his average currently sits at .198 on the year.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is unlikely to reach the 20-homer mark again in 2015. He won't help in the average department, either, and he's no longer an everyday player with the emergence of Jimmy Paredes at DH. Pearce is strictly a matchup play at FantasyScore, and a midrange one at that.

Orioles | Caleb Joseph resting Thursday

Thu, 21 May 2015 09:03:21 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Caleb Joseph is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 21. C Ryan Lavarnway is starting and hitting ninth in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP J.A. Happ.

Fantasy Tip: Lavarnway ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .136 (3-for-22) and should be ignored at FantasyScore.

Orioles | Everth Cabrera ready to return

Thu, 21 May 2015 08:36:04 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 2B Everth Cabrera (foot) is expected to return from his disabled list stint Friday, May 22, according to manager Buck Showalter.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) wasn't making a significant impact before the injury, especially where his biggest value lies in the stolen base department. He stands to see plenty of at-bats at second base, and he'll maintain fleeting value in AL-only and deep mixed leagues until Jonathan Shoop returns from his knee injury. FantasyScore players should view Cabrera as a desperation flier until he proves otherwise.

Orioles | Alejandro De Aza starting vs. Seattle

Thu, 21 May 2015 08:02:43 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Alejandro De Aza is batting eighth and playing left field against the Seattle Mariners Thursday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: De Aza ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Thursday. However, it is worth noting he had a three-hit game in his last start Tuesday, May 19.

Orioles | Bud Norris likely for May 28

Wed, 20 May 2015 19:18:08 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Bud Norris (illness) will start Friday, May 22, for Class AAA Norfolk (Va.). Norris is eligible to come off the disabled list Tuesday, May 26, but it seems more likely he'll be activated prior to the Orioles' doubleheader Thursday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) had an ERA of 9.88 prior to landing on the DL. Until some positive results are seen, Norris won't be a FantasyScore option, and he should be dropped in all season-long leagues.

Orioles | Adam Jones boosts batting average

Wed, 20 May 2015 19:13:35 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones collected three more hits Wednesday, May 20, against the Seattle Mariners. Jones owns a batting average of .343 for the season.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) regularly leads off for the Orioles, leading to his 20 runs scored. Jones also has 25 RBI and six home runs on the season. Jones should be regarded as one of the top outfield options on FantasyScore.

Orioles | Wei-Yin Chen takes loss

Wed, 20 May 2015 19:07:59 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen suffered his third loss of the season Wednesday, May 20, against the Seattle Mariners. Chen allowed four runs and eight hits over seven innings. It was the first time in eight starts this season Chen allowed more than three runs.

Fantasy Tip: Chen ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has been benefiting from an opponent BABIP of just .222 through 42 and two-third innings. Chen's 4.57 xFIP signals more regression on the way and FantasyScore owners will need to proceed with severe caution when considering using Chen in lineups.

Orioles | Dylan Bundy could skip Class AAA

Wed, 20 May 2015 17:14:46 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Dylan Bundy does not have to pitch for Class AAA Norfolk (Va.) in order to join the Orioles, according to manager Buck Showalter. Bundy could be an option for the team in June if he pitches well in the minor leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Bundy is playing his first full season since undergoing surgery, so his performance in the minors will determine if he will pitch for the Orioles this season. Owners should monitor the situation to see if Bundy will be an option down the road.

Orioles | Bud Norris improving

Wed, 20 May 2015 13:54:56 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Bud Norris (illness) threw Wednesday, May 20, and said he felt good.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) will make a rehab start with Class AAA Norfolk (Va.) Friday, May 22, and the plan is for him to rejoin the Orioles' rotation after that. He has allowed at least three runs in each start this season and is currently sporting a 9.88 ERA. Until he strings a few solid starts together, there is no reason to depend on him in any fantasy format.

Orioles | Matt Wieters dealing with hamstring injury

Wed, 20 May 2015 13:37:27 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters (elbow, hamstring) experienced hamstring tightness, but he is still expected to catch Thursday, May 21. He is currently on a rehab assignment with Class AA Bowie (Md.).

Fantasy Tip: Wieters ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is expected to join the Orioles sometime in early June, and he will be a boost to lineups in the real and fake game. Continue to stash him in all formats and check back for updates on his progress. Upon his return, FantasyScore players could have a nice bargain on their hands from the beginning, although, it wouldn't be out of the question for him to struggle through an adjustment period at the dish initially.
