#TBT: Henry Urrutia smacks walk-off homer for first career longball

2016 spring training will be a big one for outfielder Henry Urrutia, who will try to show that he deserves a spot on the Orioles 25-man roster. While O's fans have only seen Urrutia in two short stints in the big leagues - one in 2013 and one in 2015 - he has made an impact. Last season, he hit .265 (9-for-34) in 10 games ... read more

#TBT: Jonathan Schoop clobbers 484-foot homer

At just 24, Jonathan Schoop has proven to be a strong defensive asset in the middle of the infield. He has also showcased his power. Despite being limited to 86 games in 2015, the second baseman still belted 15 homers for the Birds. And were any of his home runs more impressive than his mammoth bomb off Johnny Cueto at Kauffman Stadium? Schoop got all ... read more

Out of the Park: Welcome back, Crush!

Obviously, the big news this week was first baseman Chris Davis re-signing with the Orioles.
