Orioles | J.J. Hardy still in walking boot

Thu, 26 May 2016 15:54:56 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (foot) is still in a walking boot and will remain in extended spring training in Sarasota, Fla. He will be reassessed this weekend, manager Buck Showalter said Thursday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Since the beginning of 2014, Hardy has an underwhelming .247/.285/.351 slash line with just 19 home runs through 1,092 plate appearances. There isn't a lot of fantasy value here outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues.

Orioles | Hyun-soo Kim starting again

Thu, 26 May 2016 14:35:55 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Hyun-soo Kim is starting in left field for the second straight day and is hitting eighth against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Thursday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Kim could start seeing more playing time in the outfield if he continues to hit. In limited at-bats this year, he is hitting .438 (14-for-32) with no home runs and two RBI. While the power isn't there, take note if he starts seeing more starts against right-handers, as he could become a useful option in deep mixed leagues for depth.

Orioles | Tyler Wilson takes third loss

Wed, 25 May 2016 23:12:45 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Tyler Wilson dropped to 2-3 after losing his start Wednesday, May 25, versus the Houston Astros. He went six innings, yielding four runs (three earned) on six hits, including two homers. He also walked none and struck out four.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson surprisingly has been pretty consistent after an unimpressive rookie showing last season, as he's allowed exactly two or three runs in five of his six starts since joining the rotation. At the same time, he doesn't really offer much, having just 22 strikeouts in 42 2/3 total innings, which doesn't really help his owners. Thus, he's more suited for deep AL-only leagues.

Orioles | Joey Rickard with day off

Wed, 25 May 2016 15:40:35 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Joey Rickard is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 25. OF Hyun-soo Kim is starting in left field and is hitting ninth against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh. Also, 2B Jonathan Schoop moves up to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Don't let Kim's small sample size (.379 in 29 at-bats) fool you into thinking he's a sneaky daily pick Wednesday night. Hitting at the bottom of the order severely limits his upside. Schoop, on the other hand, has picked it up in May (.333-4-14) and could be an excellent value selection in DFS.

Orioles | Chris Tillman has been very efficient

Wed, 25 May 2016 11:50:42 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman had his seventh straight quality start against the Houston Astros Tuesday, May 24, giving up two runs and three hits in seven innings. He has allowed 10 runs over 46 1/3 innings in his streak of quality starts, and his ERA remains at 2.61. He had won each of his last five starts before Tuesday, and opponents were hitting just .191 against him in his last six starts.

Fantasy Tip: After a rough 2015 season, Tillman has really turned things around this year with a 6-1 record, 2.61 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and a career-high 8.9 strikeouts per nine innings. It's time he deserved a look in mixed leagues after his strong start.

Orioles | Yovani Gallardo to throw sim game

Tue, 24 May 2016 15:40:36 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a two-inning simulated game Saturday, May 28, and he'll likely move to three or four innings in a second simulated game before embarking on a rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: The O's are taking it slow with Gallardo, who is on the DL for the first time in his career. He is likely on the waiver wire in most mixed leagues after posting a 7.00 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in his four starts this year. Declining velocity and strikeout rates leave very little upside for the veteran right-hander even when fully healthy.

Orioles | Yovani Gallardo to be evaluated Monday

Sun, 22 May 2016 18:53:21 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Sunday, May 22, his first since landing on the disabled list, and he will be evaluated Monday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Feel free to keep an eye on Gallardo as he works his way back, but he isn't a player you need to stash.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez sitting out

Sun, 22 May 2016 11:47:56 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angeles of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver Sunday, May 22. 2B Ryan Flaherty will start at third base and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Flaherty has gone 8-for-36 this month but does not have any RBI during that span. Owners should be able to find better options for their lineups in daily fantasy leagues.

Orioles | Matt Wieters will not start

Sun, 22 May 2016 11:10:27 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angeles of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver Sunday, May 22. C Caleb Joseph will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph has gone hitless in his last seven at-bats, so owners should look for other players to use in their starting lineups.

Orioles | Brad Brach picks up victory

Sun, 22 May 2016 00:23:21 -0700

Baltimore Orioles RP Brad Brach earned his fourth win of the season Saturday, May 21, as he pitched 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief in a 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: If your league allows you to play middle relievers, Brach is a definite option for you. Because of his position on the roster, where he serves as sort of a setup guy, Brach often gets in line for the win or an occasional strong performance. Brach has little fantasy value outside of those leagues that allow relievers like him, but keep Brach in mind otherwise.

Orioles | Matt Wieters hits game-winning homer

Sun, 22 May 2016 00:22:23 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters celebrated his 30th birthday Saturday, May 21, when he hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning to give his team a 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters lifted his line to .283/.330/.455, and these averages certainly suggest a hitter who should be considered for fantasy purposes. He may occasionally lose a start at catcher to Caleb Joseph, but Wieters certainly is in no danger of losing playing time soon.

Orioles | Nolan Reimold takes a seat

Sat, 21 May 2016 15:58:19 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Nolan Reimold is out of the lineup Saturday, May 21, with 1B Pedro Alvarez hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez is hitting .167 this month and has just two homers and nine RBI on the season. He's not a real good option in DFS against Matt Shoemaker.

Orioles | Mark Trumbo homers Friday

Sat, 21 May 2016 05:36:50 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Mark Trumbo went 1-for-5 with one home run and two RBI against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Friday, May 20. He has 13 home runs on the season, which leads the team.

Fantasy Tip: Trumbo has slowed down a bit this month but is still hitting .265 with seven home runs and 12 RBI during the month. Trumbo should be an attractive option in most mixed leagues as well as daily fantasy leagues.

Orioles | Joey Rickard, Manny Machado go deep

Sat, 21 May 2016 05:25:07 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Joey Rickard and 3B Manny Machado hit consecutive home runs in the first inning against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Friday, May 20. Rickard went 2-for-5 with two RBI during the game, while Machado went 2-for-4 with one RBI and three runs scored.

Fantasy Tip: Rickard is hitting .250 so far in May but has only four RBI during that span. He is an everyday player for the Orioles and is a starting option in deeper mixed leagues. Machado has only four hits in his last seven games but should be a starting option since he is hitting over .300 this season.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez sitting vs. southpaw

Fri, 20 May 2016 15:18:09 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim left-handed SP Hector Santiago Friday, May 20. SS Paul Janish is starting at the hot corner and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Expect to see Alvarez rested most days when the O's face a left-handed hurler. Janish has a career .215 average with seven home runs in eight big league seasons, so there's no incentive for you to click on him in daily formats this evening.
