Orioles | Bud Norris return delayed

Mon, 25 May 2015 13:32:57 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Bud Norris (illness) has had his return to the team pushed back due to bronchitis. He will not start as originally planned on Thursday, May 28, and Norris will go to Class AA Bowie for rehab.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has struggled as it is, but the team would rather he feel 100 percent than still pitch sick. Keep an eye on his progress.

Orioles | J.J. Hardy injured

Mon, 25 May 2015 13:29:56 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy (back) left the game against the Houston Astros on Monday, May 25, with back tightness.

Fantasy Tip: Hardy ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) may need a few days to let the tightness dissipate or this could be a recurring problem. For now, shelve Hardy until more news is announced. Everth Cabrera ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) will see any time at shortstop, most likely.

Orioles | Travis Snider will not start

Mon, 25 May 2015 08:38:54 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Travis Snider is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. OF Alejandro De Aza will take his place in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Snider ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. De Aza ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has been on a bit of a cold steak at the plate this month and has four hits in his last seven games. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using De Aza as a cheaper option, but there are likely better options available.

Orioles | Everth Cabrera starting at 2B

Mon, 25 May 2015 08:34:22 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS Everth Cabrera will be the starting second baseman for the team Monday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) recently returned from the disabled list and is back in the starting lineup. Cabrera could be a risky option on FantasyScore since he is still coming back from his injury and is batting only .212 so far this season.

Orioles | Chris Davis sitting out

Mon, 25 May 2015 08:26:40 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 1B Chris Davis is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. INF Steve Pearce will start at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is not in the lineup for the first time since opening day. Pearce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has only five hits in his last nine games and is batting .188 for the season. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use.

Orioles | Ryan Lavarnway in at catcher

Sun, 24 May 2015 08:29:32 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Ryan Lavarnway will start at catcher and bat seventh in the order Sunday, May 24, against the Miami Marlins. C Caleb Joseph will be available off the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Lavarnway ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has just one multi-hit game and one run scored on the season. FantasyScore owners need to look elsewhere.

Orioles | Everth Cabrera in for J.J. Hardy

Sun, 24 May 2015 08:25:29 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SS Everth Cabrera will start at shortstop and bat sixth in the order Sunday, May 24, against the Miami Marlins. SS J.J. Hardy will go to the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is a switch-hitter who slightly favors right-handed pitchers. Cabrera shouldn't be highly owned against Marlins righty Tom Koehler, making him a deep flier in GPP tournaments.

Orioles | David Lough batting second

Sun, 24 May 2015 08:21:09 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF David Lough will start in left field and bat second in the order Sunday, May 24, against the Miami Marlins and RHP Tom Koehler.

Fantasy Tip: Lough ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting just .231 for the season, even with a .313 BABIP. FantasyScore owners shouldn't be considering Lough for any type of lineup.

Orioles | Mike Wright solid again

Sun, 24 May 2015 05:29:40 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Mike Wright allowed three hits but zero runs through seven scoreless innings Saturday, May 23, against the Miami Marlins. Wright is yet to allow a run through the first 14 innings of his starting career. It is the longest streak by an Orioles pitcher since David Ford started with 15 scoreless innings in 1978, according to STATS.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is next scheduled for Friday, May 29, against the Tampa Bay Rays. Wright should be highly used in GPP tournaments with a favorable opponent.

Orioles | Bud Norris hits setback

Sat, 23 May 2015 14:50:29 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Bud Norris (illness) gave up nine earned runs and 12 hits in his rehab start at AAA Rochester on Friday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) hadn't pitched since May 10, and manager Buck Showalter had hoped to have him back sometime this week. It looks like that may not happen now. With a 9.88 ERA in six starts this spring, you have to wonder if the Orioles pull the plug.

Orioles | Steve Pearce out Saturday

Sat, 23 May 2015 13:13:54 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 2B Steve Pearce is out of the lineup Saturday, May 23, against the Miami Marlins. OF Jimmy Paredes will start at second base and hit second in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Paredes ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has gone without a hit in only one of his last 19 games. Paredes is a switch-hitter who is hitting .361 against right-handed pitchers this season. The Orioles will go up against Marlins RHP Dan Haren Saturday, making Paredes a very safe option with a high upside as he bats out of the two-hole.

Orioles | BAL agrees to terms with Ariel Miranda

Sat, 23 May 2015 12:18:09 -0700

The Baltimore Orioles have agreed to terms with Cuban P Ariel Miranda, pending a physical. Financial terms of the deal have not been released.

Fantasy Tip: Miranda is not expected to make an impact at the major league level anytime soon but fantasy owners in keeper and dynasty leagues may want to keep tabs on him.

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.
