Harvey loses shutout in fifth and Orioles drop Game 1 (updated)

The rotation is motoring through its third turn in 2021. Traveling a road that hasn’t appeared on any map, with the baseball season accelerating from 60 to 162 games. Potholes can look like canyons. The Orioles are packing 14 pitchers for the early portion of their trip as needed protection, uncertain how many innings can be handled by their starters and unwilling to risk injury ... read more

Hyde on Kremer, Sceroler and celebrating Jackie Robinson Day

The 54 pitches thrown by Dean Kremer in Tuesday’s doubleheader may not preclude him from starting again on short rest in Texas. Manager Brandon Hyde is listing Saturday’s starter as TBD, but Kremer is a possibility. Kremer worked three innings in Tuesday’s second game. “We’re considering Dean, as well as some other options,” Hyde said this morning in his Zoom call with the media. “We’re ... read more

Orioles and Mariners Game 1 lineups

The Orioles brought up reliever Cole Sulser from their secondary training site to serve today as the 27th man in the doubleheader against the Mariners at Camden Yards that closes out the first homestand. Sulser was optioned to make room for reliever Shawn Armstrong on the active roster. He threw two scoreless innings with three strikeouts in his only appearance. The switch in opposing starters ... read more

A few Orioles observations before today’s doubleheader

A sample size born 11 games into a baseball season trends much closer to small than substantial. Shouldn’t overreact or make firm judgements. Can’t exert too much energy celebrating the good and burying the bad. This isn’t the National Football League. They’re trying to play 162. Of course, it’s only natural to react to the early successes and failures. We’re only human - born to ... read more

Hyde on Mancini’s day off, Ruiz’s slump and more (game postponed)

For the first time in a young 2021 season, Orioles first baseman Trey Mancini will begin a game sitting on the bench. Mancini is getting a break tonight as the Orioles attempt to resume their series against the Mariners with rain returning to the forecast. Maikel Franco is playing first base rather than starting across the infield. Manager Brandon Hyde used Mancini as the designated ... read more

Orioles and Mariners lineups

Trey Mancini is out of the Orioles lineup tonight, with Maikel Franco, the team leader with 12 RBIs, playing first base. Rio Ruiz is starting at third base. Ryan Mountcastle stays in the sixth slot as the designated hitter. DJ Stewart is in left field. Chance Sisco is catching and Ramón Urías, the hero in the second game of yesterday’s doubleheader with his walk-off single, ... read more

Sanders sees sufficient strides from Mountcastle in left field

Former Orioles manager Johnny Oates always insisted on putting his best defensive outfielder in left at Camden Yards, which is why Brady Anderson did most of his early work in the corner, though the three-time All-Star is mostly identified as playing center in Baltimore. There was the angle, and fans in the first row of seats who easily could reach out and interfere with fly ... read more

Urías’ first career walk-off hit gives Orioles split (updated)

The eight-pitch first inning tonight, the ease in which Dean Kremer handled the Mariners, didn’t establish a tone for his start. Didn’t offer any hints or clues. Just provided a reminder of how good he can be - and where the Orioles want to get him. Kyle Seager’s sacrifice fly and a three-run homer by José Marmolejos in the third set up Kremer for another ... read more
