Date:

Steve Pearce hit his 13th homer Wednesday and has six extra-base hits in his last four games.

Pearce had a putrid July and was being turned back into a bench player before Manny Machado got hurt. Given a reprieve, he suddenly found his stroke again Sunday, collecting as many extra-base hits these last four days as he had total the previous month and a half. The Orioles will find room for him as long as he hits, so those desperate for power in mixed leagues might want to give him another look.
Aug 20 - 11:05 PM

Steve Pearce doubled and smacked a solo homer in Sunday's win over the Indians.

He scored a pair of runs on the day. Pearce has predictably faded since his monster June but still sports a .284/.352/.502 for the season. His 12 home runs this year triple his previous career high.
Aug 17 - 4:35 PM

Steve Pearce fanned all four times up Friday versus the Mariners.

Pearce is in his first minislump in a while, going 1-for-16 with eight strikeouts in his last four games. He was so good for the Orioles for two months that he figures to get a little rope. However, if he doesn't pick it up these next few days, the team might go hunting for another left field/DH option before the deadline.
Jul 26 - 1:40 AM

Steve Pearce singled and hit a solo home run in four at-bats as the Orioles defeated the Nationals on Thursday.

Pearce hasn't logged a hit since Sunday, as he only had one at-bat when the O's were in Washington playing without the DH and was held hitless on Wednesday at home. The homer got the scoring started in the bottom of the first. In only 198 plate appearances, Pearce has 11 home runs, 31 RBI, and a .322/.379/.583 slash line.
Jul 10 - 9:55 PM

Steve Pearce is not in Monday's lineup against the Nationals.

He'll take a seat with the DH unavailable under NL rules. Chris Davis will start at first base while Nelson Cruz will play left field.
Jul 7 - 4:02 PM

Steve Pearce had another big game, going 4-for-5 with two doubles, two RBI, and two stolen bases in Thursday's win over the Rangers.

Pearce has been unstoppable this season. He singled in the Orioles' first run in the third inning, doubled in another run in the fifth, and stole two bags on the evening just for good measure. Pearce, 31, is slashing .338/.397/.618 with 10 home runs, 29 RBI, and four stolen bases.
Jul 3 - 11:32 PM

Steve Pearce went 1-for-3 with a sacrifice fly and a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

Pearce blasted a pair of homers on Monday and kept the power display going on Tuesday, going deep in the first inning against Nick Martinez. The 31-year-old has been a surprise contributor to the Orioles, as he carries an elite .327/.382/.607 slash line with 10 home runs and 27 RBI in only 165 plate appearances.
Jul 1 - 10:10 PM

Steve Pearce hit a pair of two-run homers to lead the Orioles past the Rangers 7-1 on Monday.

Pearce, who has been on waivers as often as anyone in the league the last couple of years, has come up huge for the Orioles, solving their DH problems recently. He is hitting .327 with nine homers, 12 doubles and 25 RBI in 146 at-bats. One imagines he'll falter against righties as time goes on, but he should remain a starter against lefties. Both of his homers tonight came off southpaw Joe Saunders.
Jun 30 - 10:21 PM

Steve Pearce went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the White Sox.

Pearce continues to swing a hot bat. The two-hit night is his ninth multi-hit game in 14 June games, and his sixth in his last seven starts. Pearce also notched his seventh home run, going deep against Jose Quintana in the sixth inning. The 31-year-old first baseman is now slashing .344/.406/.592 with 20 RBI in 138 plate appearances.
Jun 24 - 10:41 PM

Steve Pearce went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and a walk in a 6-1 win over the Yankees on Saturday.

Pearce continues to stay red-hot. He has eight hits in his last 16 at-bats and is hitting .421 (16-for-38) with two home runs, six doubles, and seven RBI since June 6. With a .333/.387/.579 batting line over 37 games, the 31-year-old has been a very pleasant surprise for Baltimore this season.
Jun 21 - 4:17 PM

Steve Pearce went 2-for-5 with two RBI against the Yankees on Friday.

Pearce provided most of the Baltimore offense in Friday's 5-3 loss. He picked up an RBI double in the sixth and tacked on an RBI single in the ninth. The 31-year old first baseman has made the most of his limited at-bats (111 ABs on the season), with five home runs and 17 RBI overall.
Jun 20 - 11:08 PM

Steve Pearce went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Rays.

Pearce also walked twice in the game, reaching in four of his five plate appearances. The 31-year-old walked and scored in the third inning, hit the two-run shot off Brad Boxberger in the seventh and added a double for good measure in the ninth. With little fanfare, Pearce has quietly hit .317/.367/.535 while playing three different positions for the Orioles this season.
Jun 18 - 12:04 AM

Steve Pearce went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Indians.

Pearce had a double among his three hits, and he also stole his first base of the year in the game. In 57 at-bats this year, the 31-year-old is hitting .333/.377/.561. With Chris Davis now back, Pearce could find more at-bats in a corner outfield spot, but he's still mainly a part-time player.
May 25 - 5:41 PM

Steve Pearce homered in a second straight game Friday against the Astros.

Pearce has three homers in four games, which could leave the Orioles with a tough decision with Chris Davis on the verge of returning early next week. The team could keep him for now if Matt Wieters is ready to catch, in which case Caleb Joseph would exit the roster, but one imagines they'll eventually have to pick between Pearce and Delmon Young for one roster spot.
