Baltimore Orioles news, rumors and injuries
Tue, 26 Jul 2016 13:08:13 -0700
Baltimore Orioles OF Hyun-soo Kim (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, July 26. He will start in right field and is batting second against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis Tuesday.
Fantasy Tip: Kim returns after missing the last few weeks because of his hamstring injury. He should be considered a risky option since he is coming off injury but is an attractive option for some owners since he is hitting .329 this season.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has tailed off a bit in the month of July, entering with just one homer and four RBIs. However, he had his first multi-RBI game since June 25, and fantasy owners hope it is a sign of things to come.

Fantasy Tip: Give Wieters at least one more game to shake off the rust and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks before trusting him in fantasy again.

Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo allowed two runs and five hits over 6 2/3 innings in a no-decision Monday, July 25, against the Colorado Rockies. He also issued two walks with six strikeouts and a wild pitch, throwing 60 of his 108 pitches for strikes.
Fantasy Tip: Gallardo was much better in this one against a strong Colorado offensive unit. He hasn't showed any ill-effects of the shoulder injury which forced him to the shoulder for a good chunk of the season, and has re-emerged as a must-start in AL-only fantasy leagues and deeper mixed formats and DFS play.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners in AL-only leagues will want to avoid Kim until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game or two before trusting him again.

Fantasy Tip: Kim has proven to be an excellent hitter against right-handed pitchers with a .355/.428/.489 slash line, and he's a viable option in deep mixed and AL-only leagues because of it. Additionally, in formats where you can easily pull him out of the lineup against lefties and plug him in against righties, Kim is valuable.

Baltimore Orioles 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Jorge De La Rosa Monday, July 25. OF Dariel Alvarez draws into the lineup in right field and is hitting ninth.
Fantasy Tip: Alvarez probably won't see enough playing time to be viable outside of deep AL-only leagues, and he has just seven hits in 29 career at-bats the last two years. He's a desperation source of salary cap relief in DFS this evening.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters hasn't registered an extra-base hit in July and owns a disastrous .319 OPS. In single-catcher leagues, you need better production than that. Wieters has plenty of upside, but he isn't a must-own backstop at this point, either.

Fantasy Tip: Schoop got off to a bit of a slow start in the run-producing department immediately after the All-Star break, but he has four RBI over his last three games. He is also tied for fifth among all second basemen with his 17 homers this season and ranks fourth among them in RBI (58). He has been a solid four-category contributor for the bulk of the season and can be considered a must-start in leagues of all sizes.

Fantasy Tip: O'Day likely will not receive many save opportunities with Zach Britton in the bullpen but should still be a decent option in deeper mixed leagues because of his holds.

Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy and C Matt Wieters (foot) remain out of the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber Sunday, July 24. INF Ryan Flaherty will bat seventh and play shortstop and C Caleb Joseph will start behind the plate and bat eighth. In addition, OF Julio Borbon is back in left field and will hit ninth.
Fantasy Tip: Flaherty is 5-for-11 versus Kluber in his career, while Joseph is 7-for-19 over the past week following a slow start at the plate this year. Both players are worth considering as inexpensive fliers in daily fantasy games.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters was slumping prior to the injury, but he is worth waiting on in deeper mixed and AL-only formats.

Fantasy Tip: Gausman has been better than his 2-7 record indicates, and you could do worse if you need a starter in AL-only leagues.
Sat, 23 Jul 2016 19:36:59 -0700
Fantasy Tip: After a bit if a slow start out of the All-Star break, Trumbo has homered in back-to-back games. With his power stroke back, don't hesitate to use him in DFS formats.
Sat, 23 Jul 2016 06:04:21 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The Orioles have been looking for pitching help leading up to the trade deadline and may be able to acquire Cashner. He would join the starting lineup if he is traded to the Orioles and would be a starting option in mixed leagues.
