O’s lefty Alex Wells moved to Double-A and met the challenge

When left-hander Alex Wells had solid stats last year at Single-A Frederick but was not as dominant as he was the previous season at Single-A Delmarva, you had to wonder if some of his doubters would be proven right. The lefty without the big fastball would have it tougher as he moved up the Orioles’ minor league ladder. Surely hitters would figure him out with ... read more

A look at Wojciechowski’s swing-and-miss stuff

Yes, it’s a small sample size, but yes, it sure has been impressive. The topic is Asher Wojciechowski’s swing-and-miss stuff, seen yesterday and also right before the All-Star break in Toronto. At Rogers Centre on July 7, Wojciechowski had a nasty slider going in the early innings, and Blue Jays batters could not make consistent contact against it. In the second and third innings that ... read more

Asher Wojciechowski with a gem as O’s win and take series

The day after the Boston Red Sox scored 17 runs, Orioles right-hander Asher Wojciechowski showed us that even baseball’s highest-scoring team can be pitched to. Wojciechowski had a no-hitter through six innings on a steamy afternoon and spun 7 1/3 scoreless innings as the Orioles blanked the Red Sox 5-0 at Camden Yards. The Orioles ended a 10-series winless stretch against Boston that dated to ... read more

Right-hander Branden Kline on his return to the Orioles

Needing a fresh arm after position player Stevie Wilkerson had to pitch the last two innings last night, the Orioles today recalled pitcher Branden Kline from Triple-A Norfolk as outfielder Keon Broxton was designated for assignment. Kline is back to try and unlock the key to major league success. In three previous stints in the bigs this year, he is 1-4 with a 6.75 ERA ... read more

Can well-traveled Wojciechowski slow the Boston bats?

The Orioles enjoyed blowout wins Wednesday and Friday when their pitching staff gave up two runs each night. But in allowing 17 runs last night, they absorbed a 17-6 blowout loss to Boston. It was the 19th time that the Orioles have allowed 10 runs or more, tied for the major league lead with Seattle. According to STATS, they’ve allowed 12 runs or more 12 ... read more
