Orioles | Kevin Gausman shuts down Cleveland

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 19:42:28 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman allowed four hits while walking three and striking out seven over seven shutout innings in a win over the Cleveland Indians Saturday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: Gausman has been better than his 2-7 record indicates, and you could do worse if you need a starter in AL-only leagues.

Orioles | Mark Trumbo reaches 30 homers

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 19:36:59 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Mark Trumbo went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in a 5-2 win over the Cleveland Indians Saturday, July 23, and he leads the majors with 30 home runs this season.

Fantasy Tip: After a bit if a slow start out of the All-Star break, Trumbo has homered in back-to-back games. With his power stroke back, don't hesitate to use him in DFS formats.

Orioles | Baltimore interested in Andrew Cashner

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 06:04:21 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner is receiving trade interest from the Baltimore Orioles, according to sources. The Padres are looking for two prospects in a trade for Cashner.

Fantasy Tip: The Orioles have been looking for pitching help leading up to the trade deadline and may be able to acquire Cashner. He would join the starting lineup if he is traded to the Orioles and would be a starting option in mixed leagues.

Orioles | Ubaldo Jimenez available

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 05:14:26 -0700

The Baltimore Orioles are looking to trade SP Ubaldo Jimenez before the trade deadline.

Fantasy Tip: Jimenez has struggled this season and currently has a 7.38 ERA in 18 games. He likely would continue to be a starting pitcher if he is traded but is not a great fantasy option at this point.

Orioles | Baltimore targeting Melvin Upton?

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 22:04:10 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. is a name that the Baltimore Orioles have expressed an interest in potentially trading for. Sources indicate Upton is available to be acquired in the right deal.

Fantasy Tip: Upton, who was acquired in what was essentially a salary dump in 2015 when the Pads dealt for his brother, is in the midst of his best season since he was a member of the Tampa Bay Rays. He's one of just three players with 20 or more steals and double-digit homers, and that's despite playing in a notorious pitcher's park. If he were to join the O's his value would receive an uptick, and he'd become a hot property in AL-only leagues.

Orioles | Dylan Bundy could remain in rotation

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 19:33:58 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Dylan Bundy won for the first time as a starter, allowing one run on five hits while striking out five over five innings against the Cleveland Indians Friday, July 22, and he could remain a starter for the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Bundy has posted solid strikeout numbers out of the bullpen, and he is worth a grabbing in AL-only leagues and deeper mixed formats as he transitions into the rotation.

Orioles | Mark Trumbo goes deep

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 19:28:16 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Mark Trumbo went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run, his first since the All-Star break, in a 5-1 win over the Cleveland Indians Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: It was only a matter of time before Trumbo went deep, and he still leads the majors on homers. He should have a permanent starting spot in all formats.

Orioles | Dariel Alvarez recalled from Class AAA

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:29:47 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Dariel Alvarez was recalled from Class AAA Norfolk Friday, July 22. The transaction corresponds with OF Joey Rickard (thumb) being placed on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez offers limited fantasy upside because he lacks speed and power, but he did hit .280 through 398 plate appearances with Norfolk this year. He could make for a low-priced flier in daily contests, but he's likely not worth adding in seasonal leagues.

Orioles | Joey Rickard placed on the DL

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:16:21 -0700

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Orioles OF Joey Rickard (thumb) was placed on the disabled list with a ligament injury in his right thumb Friday, July 22. The transaction is retroactive to Thursday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: While it might be insignificant, backdating the DL stint could be an indication that Rickard will only require the minimum time on the disabled list. He's a potential stash candidate in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues if you have the luxury, but in shallower formats, you can replace the rookie.

Orioles | Matt Wieters could catch in a pinch

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:01:13 -0700

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters (foot) could catch if needed Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: This should line Wieters up to return soon. He's struggling to string together a solid run and sits with a mediocre 25 runs, nine home runs, 38 RBI and a .250/.306/.403 slash line. There's upside, but currently, Wieters isn't a must-start backstop in single-catcher leagues.

Orioles | Joey Rickard heading to DL?

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 13:43:08 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Joey Rickard (thumb) is awaiting the results of an MRI exam on his thumb, but the team has a player ready in case Rickard requires a stint on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Rickard to miss some time and likely land on the DL. He's having a respectable rookie season and sits with 32 runs, five home runs, 19 RBI and a .268/.319/.377 slash line through 282 plate appearances. He's still best left to cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, though. Stay tuned for an official update on his status.

Orioles | Adam Jones returns vs. Cleveland

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 13:27:09 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones (back) is leading off against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Jones missed the game Thursday, July 21, but because he's right back in the leadoff spot Friday, there's no reason to fret returning him to your seasonal lineups. He is a solid starting outfielder in all fantasy leagues with 57 runs, 17 home runs, 53 RBI with a .262/.307/.441 slash line thus far.

Indians | Rajai Davis sitting out vs. Orioles

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 13:06:36 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Rajai Davis is not in the starting lineup against the Baltimore Orioles Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Davis is in jeopardy of receiving fewer starts going forward, if he hasn't already seen a cut in playing time. He has only started three of seven games since the All-Star break, after all. It could be a prime time to sell high on Davis. He should maintain some value because of his speed, but slotting in as a specialist against lefties is a significant concern.

Orioles | Still no Matt Wieters

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 12:58:43 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters (foot) is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. C Caleb Joseph is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters hasn't played since Monday, July 18, and he's struggled of late with a 1-for-23 run at the plate through his past eight games. Wieters isn't a must-own backstop in single-catcher formats. Joseph owns a .170/.223/.193 slash line this season and offers no fantasy upside in his current form.

Orioles | Vance Worley will start Sunday

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 09:37:47 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Vance Worley will start Sunday, July 24, against the Cleveland Indians. Manager Buck Showalter said he was "pleased" with Worley's spot start Tuesday, July 19, against the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: In that outing, the seven-year veteran allowed three runs over 4 1/3 innings, while throwing a season-high 88 pitches. It doesn't sound like much but in his defense, it was a tough assignment at Yankee Stadium, plus he was making his first start since April 15 after spending the rest of the year providing solid relief work in the bullpen. For the time being, though, he's a matchup-based pitching option, unless he starts to get hot like he did for the Pirates in 2014.
