Steve Pearce hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the seventh to help the Orioles beat the Astros 4-3 on Monday.
Pearce has just nine hits this month, but at least three of them have been homers, and since one was a grand slam, he has driven in 10 runs. There's still plenty of room for him to reemerge as a full-time player for the Orioles if he can get hot. Really, though, he's struggled just to tread water all season. May 25 - 4:40 PM

Steven Pearce hit a grand slam in the first inning of Thursday's 5-4 win over Mariners.

Pearce hit the four-bagger off of J.A. Happ with two outs in the first inning. It was Pearce's fourth homer of the season and pushed his RBI count to 15. While he does have a little sneaky pop in his bat, it's not enough to overcome a .198/.275/.341 batting line. Continue to disregard him for fantasy purposes.

Steve Pearce is starting at second base in Friday's game versus the Rays.

Pearce has never played an inning at the position in the minors or majors. Jimmy Paredes has plenty of experience at second base but is bizarrely in the designated hitter spot Friday instead of Pearce. Pearce has been a big disappointment with the bat this season, hitting just .196/.288/.314 over his first 15 games.
May 1 - 3:38 PM

Steve Pearce is not in the Orioles' lineup Sunday.

Apr 15 - 3:08 PM

Steve Pearce homered for the second time in as many nights, propelling the Orioles to a 6-5 win over the Rays on Tuesday.

Pearce swatted a Nathan Karns pitch over the left field wall for a two-run home run to give the O's a 6-0 lead, and it proved to be the game-winning run. Pearce also singled and scored in the game. There was some question as to how legitimate his breakout 2014 season was, but with two homers in his first two games Pearce may be proving that last year was anything but a fluke.
Apr 7 - 11:22 PM

Steve Pearce hit a solo homer, drew a walk, and scored two runs in a win over the Rays on Monday.

Pearce was one of the biggest surprises in baseball last season, hitting .293 with 21 homers and a .930 OPS over 102 games. He still has his share of doubters, which makes sense given his track record, but he's already doing all he can to silence his critics.
Apr 6 - 6:29 PM

Steve Pearce went 2-for-3 with a homer and two RBI against the Pirates on Sunday.

Pearce is 8-for-20 with a couple of homers. It's uncertain where exactly he'll get the bulk of his playing time early on, but he should be a fixture in the middle of the Baltimore lineup. We don't expect him to hit like he did last year and remain a force in mixed leagues,
