    Jason Hammel required arthroscopic surgery last month to removed a piece of loose cartilage from his right knee, but he’s inching closer to rejoining the Orioles’ rotation. According to Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com, Hammel threw 58 pitches earlier today in his second simulated game. He’s currently on track to make a minor league rehab start…

    The Orioles celebrated a walkoff victory over the Tigers on Saturday, but they’re struggling to cling to an American League Wild Card spot and could be without one of their best starters for a while. Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun writes that Jason Hammel has cartilage “floating” in his right knee that gives him pain…

    We learned earlier this week that the Orioles are “going hard” after Brewers’ right-hander Zack Greinke, but it appears Dan Duquette has some other targets in mind as he attempts to upgrade the starting rotation. According to Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com, the Orioles have called the Astros to inquire about the availability of Wandy Rodriguez.…

  6. Orioles “going hard” after Brewers ace Zack Greinke

    Zack Greinke

    There will be no shortage of teams interested in Zack Greinke if the Brewers make him available before the July 31 trade deadline and Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Orioles are already “going hard” after the former Cy Young winner. Connolly spoke to a an unnamed MLB executive from a non-Baltimore…

  7. 2012 midseason awards: AL Cy Young

    Chris Sale

    The AL Cy Young balloting turned into a rout last year, as Justin Verlander lapped the field on his way to taking league MVP honors. At the midway point, this year’s Cy is still very much in doubt. Here’s the league top 10 in ERA: Jered Weaver (LAA): 9-1, 2.13 ERA, 68/21 K/BB in 88…

  8. Yu Darvish, David Freese lead “Final Vote” balloting

    Jul 4, 2012, 1:16 PM EDT

    Yu Darvish

    With one day remaining in the “Final Vote” contest for All-Star spots Rangers starter Yu Darvish leads the AL balloting and Cardinals third baseman David Freese leads the NL balloting. Braves third baseman Chipper Jones had been leading in the NL, but yesterday he was removed from the “Final Vote” ballot after being named the…

  9. Chipper Jones is leading the NL Final Vote thing; Bryce Harper third

    Chipper Jones AP

    Major League Baseball announced the in-progress Final Vote totals a little while ago and the fans are going with history over the future: Chipper Jones leads the thing with David Freese second and Bryce Harper third. Can’t really blame this on homer ballot box-stuffing given that, as so many of you remind me when I…

    final vote

    Major League Baseball revealed its 2012 All-Star rosters Sunday on TBS. But not everything is set for next Tuesday night’s game in Kansas City. Over the next week, online ballots can be cast to send one additional player from each league to participate in this year’s Midsummer Classic. MLB calls it the “Final Vote,” and…

    Jeremy Guthrie has been a mess for the Rockies with a 7.02 ERA and league-high 15 homers allowed in 13 starts after they acquired him from the Orioles in February, and Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that they’re “aggressively trying to trade” the veteran right-hander. According to Renck the Blue Jays are among…

  12. Jason Hammel thinks the Blue Jays were stealing signs

    sign stealers

    Jason Hammel came into yesterday’s game with a 2.78 ERA and just three homers allowed in nine starts this season, but the Orioles right-hander served up four homers to the Blue Jays and afterward got about as close to accusing them of stealing signs as he could possibly get without actually doing it. Here’s what…

  13. Jeremy Guthrie makes rehab start, on track to return Tuesday

    Jeremy Guthrie Getty

    According to Troy Renck of the Denver Post, Jeremy Guthrie is poised to return from the disabled list after tossing four scoreless innings this afternoon in a minor league rehab start with High-A Modesto. Guthrie, who landed on the disabled list two weeks ago after spraining his right shoulder in a bicycle accident, allowed only…

    From MLB.com’s Britt Ghiroli comes word that the Orioles have scratched Jason Hammel from his scheduled Thursday start against the Rangers with what is being termed “right knee soreness.” An MRI taken Wednesday on Hammel’s knee revealed only inflammation and fluid buildup — with no structural damage. So the Orioles are confident that he’ll be…

    Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish gestures to fans during their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    Rangers 4, Blue Jays 1: I think it’s safe to say that, after a couple of rocky starts to begin the year, Yu Darvish is starting to get comfortable. He struck out nine Blue Jays while giving up a single run in seven innings. The homer was by the incredibly hot Edwin Encarnacion, who has…

  16. Freak bicycle accident sends Jeremy Guthrie to the disabled list

    Jeremy Guthrie was originally scheduled to start tonight against the Mets, but he’s now headed to the 15-day disabled list after spraining his right shoulder in a freak bicycle accident yesterday. Guthrie, an avid cyclist, told Troy Renck of the Denver Post that the injury occurred when the chain on his bicycle broke and sent…

    Royals celebration

    Royals 8, Indians 2: I keep hitting refresh on the scoreboard but nothing changes so, apparently, this is correct and the Royals actually won a game.  Billy Butler hit two homers as Kansas City beat up on Ubaldo Jimenez. Mets 5, Marlins 1: David Wright hit a two-run homer, giving him 735 RBI in his…

    Minnesota Twins v New York Yankees

    Yankees 7, Twins 6: Curtis Granderson hit three bombs and went 5 for 5. If you just followed this game on Twitter, though, you’d think the storyline of the game was Phil Hughes stinking. The Yankees fans I follow are a surprisingly neurotic bunch despite following the most dominant team in American sports history. But…

    Seattle Mariners v Texas Rangers

    Rangers 11, Mariners 5: According to Google Translate, a literal translation of “run support” in Japanese is サポートを実行する.  I have no idea if that covers the actual concept of run support, but I bet after last night Yu Darvish knows. He started out his major league debut by giving up four runs in the first inning…

  20. Jason Hammel loses no-hitter vs. Twins in eighth inning

    Apr 8, 2012, 3:16 PM EDT

    hammel getty

    Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel has a 4.99 career ERA and 1.47 career WHIP in the major leagues. But he’s putting on a clinic right now in Baltimore against an anemic Twins offense. Hammel has thrown seven no-hit innings and is only up to 77 total pitches as the O’s prepare to bat in the bottom…

  21. This doesn’t bode well: Jake Arrieta is Baltimore’s Opening Day starter

    Apr 2, 2012, 6:55 PM EDT

    Jake Arrieta

    “This is Birdland” - the Orioles’ 2012 slogan. Jake Arrieta had a 5.05 ERA in 22 starts before requiring elbow surgery and missing the final two months of last season. This spring, he has a 6.14 ERA in his four starts. Incredibly, it was a good enough showing to earn him the Opening Day assignment against…

    Matt Wieters, Adam Jones

    After sitting out the chase for Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder, the Orioles are staring down a fifth straight last-place finish and a seventh consecutive 90-loss season. Such is life in the AL East. Rotation Jason Hammel – R Zach Britton – L Jake Arrieta – R Wei-Yin Chen – L Tommy Hunter – R…

  23. Rockies add an underrated arm in Jeremy Guthrie

    Feb 6, 2012, 6:06 PM EDT

    Jeremy Guthrie

    There’s nothing sexy about a 47-65 career record. Jeremy Guthrie has led the AL in losses twice and in homers allowed once. He’s never won even a dozen games or struck out more than 130 batters in a season. Still, the Rockies should be very happy to have him, especially for the modest price of…

  24. Tweet of the Day: Cut by Orioles, Clay Rapada needs work

    Feb 6, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Texas Rangers pitcher Rapada throws against the Minnesota Twins during their American League baseball game in Minneapolis

    Baltimore trimmed reliever Clay Rapada from the 40-man roster this morning to make room for Jason Hammel and Matt Lindstrom, so the 30-year-old left-hander is now looking for work via Twitter: anybody need a lefty… lefty are 6-67 last two years… #justsayin — Clayton Rapada (@pada5something) February 6, 2012 Rapada correctly notes that left-handed hitters…

  25. The Orioles trade Jeremy Guthrie to the Rockies

    Feb 6, 2012, 9:36 AM EDT

    Baltimore Orioles v Texas Rangers

    Ken Rosenthal reports that the Orioles and Rockies have agreed to a trade:  Jeremy Guthrie goes to Colorado in exchange for right-handers Jason Hammel and Matt Lindstrom. Guthrie has been the subject of trade rumors since — I think — the William McKinley administration.  He’s been with the O’s for five seasons. In two of…
