Baltimore Orioles news, rumors and injuries
Mon, 31 Aug 2015 13:19:25 -0700
Baltimore Orioles C Steve Clevenger is batting sixth as the designated hitter against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer Monday, Aug. 31. C Caleb Joseph is starting behind the plate and batting eight, and C Matt Wieters is starting at first base and batting fifth Monday.
Fantasy Tip: Rarely do you see a team find room for three catchers in their starting lineup, but all three are risky FantasyScore plays Monday. Archer ($9,200, 18.4% of cap) is a tough draw, and with 13 games on the schedule, Wieters ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) might be the only lean of the trio. You should likely look elsewhere in daily contests.

Fantasy Tip: Holland ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) has been solid since making his injury-delayed debut this year, and he has allowed two runs or less in three of his four starts. He is worth considering as a value play at FantasyScore.

Baltimore Orioles 1B Chris Davis will bat cleanup and play first base against Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland Sunday, Aug. 30. INF/OF Steve Pearce, who started at first base Saturday, Aug. 29, will play left field and bat second Sunday, with OF Gerardo Parra receiving the day off.
Fantasy Tip: Davis ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) is just 3-for-27 over the last seven days and is hitless in seven career at-bats against Holland, so using him in FantasyScore this afternoon would not be recommended. Pearce ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is 5-for-18 with a pair of home runs during the same stretch and can be viewed as a source of productive cap relief.

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters will bat fifth and start behind the plate against Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland Sunday, Aug. 30. C Caleb Joseph, who caught Saturday, Aug. 29, will bat sixth and serve as the designated hitter.
Fantasy Tip: Wieters ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is just 3-for-18 over the past week and although he has homered twice in his career versus Holland, those are his only hits in 15 lifetime at-bats against the southpaw. Joseph ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) hasn't done much better over the last seven days, with a .200 mark in 20 at-bats. Better low-cost catching options are available today in FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Flaherty ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) should return to the lineup in the next game or two. Janish is not a great starting option in any fantasy league.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 15:21:23 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Alvarez went hitless in his first game with the team and should not be a fantasy option until he plays a few more games with the Orioles.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 15:20:45 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Wieters ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Joseph ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is hitting .262 with four home runs and 15 RBI this month and could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore.

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones (head, neck, wrists) was back in the starting lineup against the Texas Rangers Friday, Aug. 28, after crashing into the outfield wall during the game against the Kansas City Royals Thursday, Aug. 27. Jones was examined by Rangers team doctor Keith Meister prior to the game and he passed all of the exams, including a concussion test, according to manager Buck Showalter.
Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners can go back to considering Jones ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) as an option for future lineups, provided that he makes it through Friday's game without experiencing any problems.

Updating previous reports, Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter said OF Adam Jones (head, neck, wrists) would be evaluated in Texas Friday, Aug. 28, although he reportedly feels better after crashing into the outfield wall Thursday, Aug. 27, during the first inning of a game against the Kansas City Royals. "I don't think there's any head trauma, concussion-wise," Showalter said.
Fantasy Tip: Although Jones ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) is a solid contributor in FantasyScore most nights, owners should avoid using him in his first game back. Don't be surprised if he is held out of Friday's game against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) has struggled of late, having allowed 14 runs over 22 innings in four outings this month. He is scheduled to make his next start against the Tampa Bay Rays Tuesday, Sept. 1.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 16:30:56 -0700
Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones (head, neck, wrists) said he hopes to be able to play Friday, Aug. 28, after leaving the game early Thursday, Aug. 27, because of concussion-like symptoms and neck stiffness. Jones also underwent X-rays on both of his wrists, but those came back negative.
Fantasy Tip: There is a good chance that Jones ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) will sit out a least one game because of his injuries, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. Jones is a solid starting option most nights on FantasyScore when he is healthy.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:13:34 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Owners should look for an update on Jones' ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) status after the game to see how long he may be sidelined. Jones has played well this season and should be a starting option on FantasyScore when healthy.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 11:52:37 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The move opens playing time for Henry Urrutia ($3,400, 6.8% of cap), Steve Pearce ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) and Jimmy Paredes ($3,300, 6.6% of cap). The three project to split starts in left field and at-bats as the designated hitter. Their value in seasonal leagues is limited, but there is some FantasyScore upside in favorable matchups. Reimold can be dropped in all seasonal formats.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 07:26:11 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Alvarez has a .275-16-75 line in 512 at-bats at Norfolk. He's an AL-only add.
Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:39:36 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Paredes ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) owns a .181/.213/.236 slash line over 75 plate appearances since the All-Star break, as he has really fallen on hard times after a hot start to the season. Facing Cueto ($9,700, 19.4% of cap), Paredes is an extremely risky play at FantasyScore, and you should be able to find better value Wednesday.
