Orioles | Hyun-soo Kim hits first big-league homer

Sun, 29 May 2016 14:04:09 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Hyun-soo Kim drew his fifth straight start in left field on Sunday, May 29, and delivered a tiebreaking solo shot in the seventh inning off Cleveland Indians RP Jeff Manship.

Fantasy Tip: Given the recent struggles of early-season surprise Joey Rickard and Kim's continued excellence in spot duty prior to this week, it seemed only a matter of time before Kim saw increased playing time. The 28-year-old Korean is batting .383 and, at least at the moment, appears to be manager Buck Showalter's top choice to hit in between Adam Jones and Manny Machado. That's prime real estate for any hitter and a spot that should lead to many run-scoring opportunities, meaning owners probably need to pick him up off the wire immediately.

Orioles | Mark Trumbo continues to haunt Cleveland

Sun, 29 May 2016 13:50:04 -0700

Baltimore Orioles DH Mark Trumbo wrapped up a stellar series against the Cleveland Indians on Sunday, May 29, going 1-for-4 with a base-clearing three-run double. The 30-year-old slugger finished the three-game road set 6-for-12 with three doubles, a homer and five RBI.

Fantasy Tip: On an offense stocked with quality bats, Trumbo has been arguably the best of the bunch so far in 2016. He is tied for the major-league lead with 15 home runs and tied for fourth in the American League with 37 RBI. Keep him active in all leagues as the Orioles begin a four-game home set with the Boston Red Sox on Monday in what should be a series filled with offensive fireworks.

Orioles | Pedro Alvarez, Joey Rickard resting Sunday

Sun, 29 May 2016 07:44:31 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B Pedro Alvarez and OF Joey Rickard are not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Michael Clevinger Sunday, May 29. OF Nolan Reimold will bat eighth and play right field, with INF Ryan Flaherty batting ninth and playing the hot corner.

Fantasy Tip: Flaherty and Reimold have combined to go 2-for-22 (.091) over the past week. Neither player is a recommended fantasy option this afternoon.

Orioles | Several BAL regulars return to action

Sat, 28 May 2016 10:57:06 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters, 3B Pedro Alvarez and OF Joey Rickard are back in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar Saturday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters is batting .389 (7-for-18) with two doubles, a home run and three RBI over the past week and makes a solid catching option in all fantasy formats. Alvarez and Rickard have combined to go 4-for-32 at the plate over the same time period, so they should be avoided for now.

Orioles | Adam Jones delivers from leadoff spot

Fri, 27 May 2016 19:59:14 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones hit leadoff for the first time this year and went 3-for-5 with a run scored in a 6-4 win over the Cleveland Indians Friday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: A permanent move to the top of the lineup would hurt Jones' RBI potential, but if it can help boost his slumping bat, it would be worth it. Don't cut him loose just yet, but don't hesitate to bench him for a better option either.

Orioles | Four hits for Manny Machado

Fri, 27 May 2016 19:46:50 -0700

Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado went 4-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI and two runs scored in a 6-4 win over the Cleveland Indians Friday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: After a mini slump, Machado has reached base 14 times in his last four games. He looks like a can't-miss DFS play again.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez facing Orioles Tuesday

Fri, 27 May 2016 14:15:40 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will be activated from the disabled list to start against the Baltimore Orioles Tuesday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez returned a 3.85 ERA, a 1.29 WHIP and a 7.2 K/9 during his rookie season, and he is a viable own in the majority of seasonal leagues, if not all. However, he should be viewed with some risk for his first start Tuesday, and it isn't out of the question to let him prove himself on the mound before starting him in shallow setups.

Orioles | Matt Wieters resting Friday

Fri, 27 May 2016 13:40:47 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 27. C Caleb Joseph is catching and is hitting ninth against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph will leave the yard every now and then, but he's hitting only .190 (11-for-58) on the year with no homers or RBI. It's safe to say he's one to avoid in daily setups tonight.

Orioles | Adam Jones, Hyun-soo Kim setting the table

Fri, 27 May 2016 13:36:23 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OFs Adam Jones and Hyun-soo Kim are hitting first and second, respectively, in the lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer Friday, May 27. OF Joey Rickard remains out of the lineup, and OF Nolan Reimold is starting in right field and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: It's looking like Kim, who is hitting an impressive .444 (16-for-36) will start to see more playing time over the Rule 5 pick Rickard. He's worth speculating on in deep mixed and AL-only leagues if that continues. Jones loses some fantasy luster atop the order in daily games without as many chances to drive in runs.

Orioles | Mark Trumbo hits 14th homer

Thu, 26 May 2016 21:23:37 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Mark Trumbo hit his 14th home run of the season Thursday, May 26, which ties him for most in the American League with Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano and Chicago White Sox 3B Todd Frazier.

Fantasy Tip: Trumbo is revitalized with his move to Baltimore, and fantasy owners that took a chance on him in the middle rounds are being handsomely rewarded. He should be a lock for 30-plus home runs unless he's injured along the way. He's a must-start in all formats.

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.
