The team’s 31 quality starts this season are tied for fourth in the American League and fifth in the majors. But the starters have received 137 runs of support, the fewest in the majors.

Overall, Orioles pitchers have received 226 runs of support this season, the fewest in the AL and second-fewest in the majors behind the Marlins (223).

The Orioles released right-hander Perci Garner, according to Baseball America’s transactions. Garner, signed to a minor league contract on Dec. 1, was down at extended spring training.
