Leftovers for breakfast

The Orioles get Austin Hays back on the roster yesterday and lose Anthony Santander a few hours later. Two players just trying to make it through a season healthy. Neither injury is regarded as serious. Hays had a mild right hamstring strain, Santander sprained his left ankle. Hays knew he’d go on the injured list, but wouldn’t miss much time.

Santander leaves tonight’s game with injury (O’s win 7-5)

The wealth of outfielders on the Orioles roster took an unfortunate and potentially serious hit tonight in the first inning. It barely had time to evolve.

Orioles prepared to try again in Miami

The Orioles return from their first break this week to open a two-game series in Miami, where they’ve gone 2-13. It was a little complicated last summer. A rash of positive COVID-19 tests on the Marlins forced them to stay in Philadelphia, where they had opened their season. The Orioles remained in their Miami hotel, with no opponent, until flying back home with confirmation of ... read more

Revisiting decision to option Kremer and logic behind it

The Orioles toyed with the idea of going with a six-man rotation, settled on the more traditional five and are downsizing to four. It’s still April, only 16 games into the season. The roster will undergo plenty of changes and various circumstances are going to force the adjustments, whether due to injuries, postponements or quirky off-days stuffed into one week. Dean Kremer was optioned late ... read more

Means shines again on road in Orioles’ 1-0 10-inning loss (updated)

There’s nothing wrong with the mound at Camden Yards, the home clubhouse or the ballpark atmosphere. The routine at home isn’t disruptive. John Means just happens to pitch better on the road this month, for reasons that can’t be explained beyond the ridiculously small sample size. In Means’ lone outing in Baltimore, he faced the Mariners in the first game of a doubleheader and allowed ... read more
