Baltimore Orioles news, rumors and injuries
Tue, 26 May 2015 20:46:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Wieters ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) likely will need several rehab games before he is able to return to the Orioles. Owners on FantasyScore should see how he plays in a few games when he returns before considering him an option in their lineups.

Fantasy Tip: Paredes ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has been a nice surprise for fantasy owners early in the season. He is hitting .315 with 16 RBI so far this month. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using Paredes against most matchups.

Baltimore Orioles OF Steve Pearce is starting at second base and hitting fifth in the batting order against Houston Astros SP Scott Feldman Tuesday, May 26. 2B Everth Cabrera is starting on the bench.
Fantasy Tip: Pearce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is hitting just .188 (9-for-48) with three home runs and 10 RBI in May, but righties have an .883 OPS against Feldman in 2015. After Pearce went deep last night, he might be worth it as a sleeper pick at FantasyScore tonight.

Fantasy Tip: Snider ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is likely out because the Astros have righthander Scott Feldman on the mound. Lough ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has two hits in five at-bats in the past week, so he may be worth a low-cost flier.

Fantasy Tip: Hardy ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) missed some time recently due to other injuries, so his owners can breathe again. Let him work out the kinks in his back for a game or so before you move him into your lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has no RBIs or runs scored during the five-game slump, and while it is likely just a rough patch, he should be avoided at FantasyScore until his bat comes to life.

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.
Mon, 25 May 2015 13:29:56 -0700
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.
Mon, 25 May 2015 08:38:54 -0700
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.
Mon, 25 May 2015 08:34:22 -0700
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.
Mon, 25 May 2015 08:26:40 -0700
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.
Sun, 24 May 2015 08:29:32 -0700
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.
Sun, 24 May 2015 08:25:29 -0700
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.
Sun, 24 May 2015 08:21:09 -0700
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.
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.
