Baltimore Orioles news, rumors and injuries
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 14:46:58 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Reimold ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has just one extra-base hit since June 13, and he wasn't much of a FantasyScore consideration at this point.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 14:41:13 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Schoop ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) went 9-for-34 with two doubles and four home runs during a 10-game minor league rehab assignment. It will be Schoop's first major league start since April 17, but he'll be worth immediate FantasyScore consideration due to his potential.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 11:24:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gausman ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) tossed 6 1/3 scoreless innings in his most recent start against the Texas Rangers Thursday, July 2, and the team had considered sending him to Class AAA Norfolk in order to keep him in the routine of pitching on regular rest. Instead, he will remain with the parent club and will face Minnesota on his normal pitching day.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 11:20:47 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is 2-7 with a 6.79 ERA this season and has posted only three quality starts in 11 appearances, so his demotion to the bullpen is no surprise. Manager Buck Showalter said that he would be the team's first choice to fill a rotation spot if the need arises but as long as he's in the bullpen, Norris has no value in FantasyScore.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 10:06:15 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Snider ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is hitting better against lefties than righties this season and is just 2-for-11 in his career against Samardzija. Look elsewhere for outfield options today in FantasyScore.
Fri, 03 Jul 2015 14:12:50 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Wieters ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has a respectable .210 ISO, .356 wOBA and .823 OPS against left-handed pitchers for his career, so he stands as an excellent FantasyScore player Friday.
Fri, 03 Jul 2015 12:30:14 -0700
Fantasy Tip: With Kevin Gausman ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) and Wei-Yin Chen ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) back in the rotation and pitching well, Norris ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) could be on the outside looking in. The club could still pitch Norris on Monday, or he could serve as a long reliever. Stay away from Norris until his status is determined.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 19:24:57 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The scoreless streak is the longest in the majors this season, and Gallardo ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) has now allowed two runs or less in eight straight starts. Modest strikeout totals and poor run support limit his upside a bit, but as long as he is blanking opponents, he makes a solid No. 2 pitcher at FantasyScore.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 14:06:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Lough ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) should be an afterthought on FantasyScore, especially at the tail end of B'more's lineup. Plus, Gallardo only allowed two earned runs in 33 1/3 innings over his last five starts. Stay away from Lough tonight.
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 19:06:54 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Machado ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) went 21-for-51 (.412) with three homers, 11 RBIs and nine runs scored during the streak. He is batting .303 with 16 homers and 44 RBIs through 78 games this season.
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 18:50:04 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Chen ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has the highest strikeout rate of his career, at 7.86 batters per nine innings. Chen will make for a strong option in his next start Monday, July 6, against the Minnesota Twins.
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 15:19:47 -0700
Fantasy Tip: This is a huge blow to Young's ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) already diminished fantasy stock. He is only worth holding in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, although even there, he is nothing more than a desperation stash. The move helps Nolan Reimold's ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) value, as he projects to receive the majority of starts against left-handed pitchers going forward.
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 12:37:23 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Joseph ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) hit just .196 (9-for-46) with a home run and three RBI in June, but a struggling Martinez could be just what he needs to get on track. For what it's worth, Joseph has also hit much better at home this year. Consider him a sleeper catching play tonight.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 21:12:52 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Machado ($6,000; or 12.0% of cap) has hit .412 (21-for-51) with nine runs scored, three homers and 11 RBIs during his 12-game run.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 21:12:09 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Davis ($4,500; or 9.0% of cap) has hit safely in 10 straight games, hitting .351 (13-for-37) with four homers, 10 RBIs and eight runs scored. He is an obvious must-start in FantasyScore while running hot.
