Baltimore Orioles news, rumors and injuries
Mon, 03 Aug 2015 22:21:17 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Davis ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has posted eight home runs with 22 RBIs over his past 13 games. He needs to be part of your FantasyScore plans while he is hitting for regular power.
Mon, 03 Aug 2015 22:20:34 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Joseph ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is a slam-dunk play in FantasyScore until he cools off, as you simply can't get this type of production at catcher at this price anywhere else.

Fantasy Tip: Tillman ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) probably will not be able to make his next scheduled start, but it does not appear like he is dealing with a serious injury. Owners on FantasyScore should monitor his situation to see when he will be able to pitch again.

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick is not in the starting lineup against the Baltimore Orioles Monday, Aug. 3. OF Sam Fuld is starting in right field and batting seventh against Orioles SP Tyler Wilson Monday.
Fantasy Tip: With Coco Crisp ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) back in the mix, Reddick ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) could receive fewer at-bats going forward, especially if he continues to struggle at the dish. Over his past 40 games, Reddick has just 16 runs, three home runs, 19 RBI and a .243/.260/.357 slash line. His seasonal value could continue to fade. Fuld ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is hitting .210 with a .294 on-base percentage this season over 232 plate appearances, so you should likely aim higher at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson projects as a risky play in daily contests, and he is just filling in for Chris Tillman (ankle) who is nursing a minor knee injury. It will be just the second career start for Wilson, and it is a road outing, so the fantasy upside isn't high, especially in the strikeout department. Over 16 starts with Norfolk, Wilson posted an underwhelming 5.7 K/9.
Sun, 02 Aug 2015 08:39:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Reimold ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is hitting .300 against southpaws this season, and he's a strong option against Norris, who's making his Tigers debut.
Sat, 01 Aug 2015 19:19:28 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Parra ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is enjoying the best offensive season of his career, and there is no reason he can't continue to be a useful, mid-priced option at FantasyScore now that he is part of a Baltimore offense ranked sixth in runs scored.
Sat, 01 Aug 2015 19:07:18 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Joseph ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) isn't a regular starter now that Matt Wieters ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is back in action, but Joseph has recorded at least two RBI in five of his last 10 games. He can make a solid source of cap relief at FantasyScore when he is in the lineup.
Sat, 01 Aug 2015 12:19:11 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Wieters ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is making his third career appearance at first base and first start at the position this season. Expect him to see additional playing time there as a result of Chris Parmalee being designated for assignment recently. Joseph ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is batting .211 with one home run and five RBIs since the All-Star break.
Sat, 01 Aug 2015 12:12:41 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Parra ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is making his first appearance with the team since being acquired from the Milwaukee Brewers in a trade. He is 8-for-14 (.571) with two doubles and two RBIs in his career against Sanchez, making this a rather favorable matchup for him.
Sat, 01 Aug 2015 10:09:13 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Norris went 2-9 with a 7.06 ERA in 18 games (11 starts) this year, after winning 15 games last season as a key component of Baltimore's starting rotation. Drop him in all fantasy formats.

Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman (ankle) is still experiencing a sore left ankle that is being called a sprain, and he's taking it day-to-day. Tillman is unsure if he will make his next start Monday, Aug. 3. If he doesn't, he could start a day or two after.
Fantasy Tip: With the way Tillman ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) has pitched lately, he should be owned in all leagues. At FantasyScore, he'll carry a bit more risk in his next start coming off his tweaked ankle, but he could still be plenty profitable in the right matchup.
Fri, 31 Jul 2015 09:43:12 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The Orioles would have a seriously retooled and even more dangerous lineup with the additions of Parra and Cespedes. Cespedes' ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) fantasy value would probably receive a slight boost with a move to Baltimore. Jimmy Paredes would likely see his value take the biggest hit if Cespedes came over.
Fri, 31 Jul 2015 09:22:11 -0700
San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton is of interest to the Baltimore Orioles, but the Orioles are hesitant to part with SP Kevin Gausman, RP Mychal Givens or 2B Jonathan Schoop in any deal for a veteran bat.
Fantasy Tip: A move to Baltimore would surely make Upton ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) more valuable to his fantasy owners, although he oddly has better hitting splits at pitcher-friendly Petco Park in 2015.
Fri, 31 Jul 2015 09:12:35 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The move to Baltimore definitely won't hurt Parra's ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) fantasy value. He'll likely be hitting atop the Baltimore order, too, which might allow Manny Machado to enter a more friendly run-producing spot in the lineup. The trade will hurt the playing time of Travis Snider and Nolan Reimold.
