Baltimore Orioles news, rumors and injuries
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 22:31:01 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hardy ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is hitting .314 with seven runs scored, a homer and six RBIs during his 10-game run making him a sound investment in FantasyScore.

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton has been discussed in trade talks with the Baltimore Orioles, according to sources. A potential deal could be expanded to include SPs Andrew Cashner and/or Tyson Ross, too.
Fantasy Tip: Upton ($6,000, 12.0% of cap), strangely enough, has hit better at Petco Park (.297/.354/.558 with 13 home runs) than on the road (.208/.308/.306 with three homers) this year. However, a move to hitter-friendly Camden Yards would do nothing to hurt his fantasy value moving forward. Save your FAAB money if you're in an AL-only league, as many impact players are likely to come over from the National League at the trade deadline.

Fantasy Tip: Reimold ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) went 3-for-3 with two RBI in his last game and is hitting .250 this month but has not recorded any other RBI during that span. Reimold could be a cheaper option for owners looking to spend money at other positions but there likely are better options on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Hardy ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is hot with the stick right now, but he's facing a left-handed pitcher in Atlanta Braves starter Alex Wood tonight. Hardy is hitting just .203 (15-for-74) with none of his six home runs and only five RBI on the season against southpaws.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been struggling most of the year, and there is no reason to use him at FantasyScore until he is healthy and hitting.
Sun, 26 Jul 2015 08:11:35 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Reimold ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is capable, but it is a huge leap of faith to utilize him at FantasyScore. He is nothing more than a desperation flier Sunday.
Sun, 26 Jul 2015 08:04:56 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Joseph ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) owns an uninspiring .642 OPS against southpaws this year, and he has really struggled since the first month of the season. The backstop has a .204/.258/.347 slash line since the beginning of May.
Sun, 26 Jul 2015 07:58:05 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Lough ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) doesn't instill a lot of confidence with a .230/.269/.363 slash line. However, setting the table against a struggling Moore () bumps his value up. Lough stands as an upside source of cap relief for FantasyScore players Sunday.
Sun, 26 Jul 2015 07:30:52 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Guyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has shown more pop against lefties this season, and he also boasts some speed. He checks out as a nice low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Sunday. Just note, Chen ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in any of his last 10 starts.
Sat, 25 Jul 2015 19:26:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Wieters ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is still working his way back into form after having elbow surgery last year. He is hitting just .234 with 12 RBI in 33 games, and he isn't worth using at FantasyScore right now. In the long run, being able to play first base while maintaining catcher eligibility should boost his value a bit in seasonal leagues.
Sat, 25 Jul 2015 19:20:04 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Davis ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is a high-risk, high-reward play at FantasyScore, but he has three homers and seven RBI in his last four games and could be worth taking a chance on at FantasyScore while he is dialed in at the plate.
Sat, 25 Jul 2015 13:18:06 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Lough ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) really doesn't have much to write home about with a .220-4-12 line on the season. But with Manny Machado sliding down to the three-hole, Lough could be auditioning for the leadoff role. Avoid him on FantasyScore for now.
Fri, 24 Jul 2015 20:18:13 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Pearce ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has battled injuries all year and is hitting just .224. It sounds like his latest injury could linger well into August, so it might be time to cut ties with Pearce in seasonal leagues if you haven't already done so.

Fantasy Tip: Entering play Friday, July 24, Davis ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) was batting .241 with 21 home runs and 55 RBIs through 92 games. He remains an excellent source of power for FantasyScore owners who are looking to save a bit of money at the first base position that don't mind a low batting average.
Fri, 24 Jul 2015 17:40:03 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Entering play Friday, July 24, Wieters ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) was batting .260 with three home runs and 12 RBIs through 30 games, while splitting time between designated hitter and catcher. He makes a decent value play in FantasyScore.
