Kevin Gausman worked seven innings of one-run ball in his final start of the season Sunday against the Rays.

But the Orioles' offense managed zero runs against Blake Snell and the Tampa Bay bullpen in the eventual 6-0 loss. Gausman struck out nine and did not issue a walk, though Curt Casali popped him for a go-ahead solo shot in the bottom of the fifth. Gausman, 26, finishes the 2017 season with an 11-12 record, 4.68 ERA, 1.49 WHIP, and 179/71 K/BB ratio in 34 starts covering 186 2/3 innings.

Adam Jones (legs) remained out of the Orioles' lineup Sunday.

He wound up sitting out the final four games of the season and six of the last 14 due to what the O's have simply referred to as general leg soreness. Austin Hays is covering center field again.

J.J. Hardy went 2-for-4 and scored a run in a loss to the Rays on Saturday.

He doubled and scored in the ninth inning as the Orioles' rally fell one run short. The 35-year-old shortstop can still play excellent defense but he really struggled at the plate this year. He has a .219 batting average with four homers and 24 RBI in 72 games. He hasn't had a good fantasy season since 2013.
Sep 30 - 9:43 PM

Pedro Alvarez went 2-for-4 and drove in two runs against the Rays on Saturday.

He plated two runs with a single in the eighth inning. The 30-year-old spent almost the whole season in the minors, where he batted .239 with 26 homers and 89 RBI at Triple-A Norfolk. He got called up on September 1st and has a .313 batting average with one homer in 34 plate appearances.
Sep 30 - 9:39 PM

Miguel Castro surrendered three runs in 3 1/3 innings and took a loss to the Rays on Saturday.

It was the first start of his career and it didn't go very well. He struck out three batters, issued one walk and gave up six hits. All three runs scored on a Brad Miller home run in the fourth inning. The 22-year-old has a 3.53 ERA with 38 strikeouts in 66 1/3 innings for the season.
Sep 30 - 9:34 PM

Tim Beckham admitted after Friday's game that his hamstring is still bothering him and that he probably shouldn't be playing on it.

Beckham rejoined the lineup after missing nearly a week, but his hamstring injury continued to bother him throughout Friday's game. As this point, expect him to be held out of the lineup for the final two games over the weekend.
Sep 29 - 10:48 PM

Tim Beckham went 0-for-4 and struck out twice as the Orioles were shut out by the Rays on Friday.

As a team, the Orioles tallied just four hits on the evening against Jake Odorizzi and a host of Rays' relievers. It was Beckham's first start in nearly a week due to a strained right hamstring. He's hitting .278/.328/.454 with 22 homers and 62 RBI on the season.
Sep 29 - 10:20 PM

Wade Miley struggled in Friday's loss to the Rays, allowing four runs on five hits in his four-plus innings of work.

On the plus side, the left-hander fanned six on the night, though he also struggled with his command and issued five free passes. Evan Longoria's solo homer leading off the fifth inning was the final nail in the coffin. Miley finishes the season with a disappointing 8-15 record, 5.61 ERA, 1.73 WHIP and 142/93 K/BB ratio in his 157 1/3 innings.
Sep 29 - 10:19 PM

Adam Jones (legs) remained out of the Orioles' lineup Friday.

Jones hasn't played since Sunday because of general leg soreness. At this point, it looks like he might only make a token appearance or two in the final weekend. Austin Hays is again in center field.
Sep 29 - 4:21 PM

Tim Beckham (hamstring) is back in the Orioles' lineup Friday.

It will be his first start since last Saturday, as he's been battling a strained right hamstring. Beckham is shortstop and hitting leadoff.
Sep 29 - 4:19 PM

Miguel Castro will start for the Orioles on Saturday in Tampa Bay.

Castro was a top prospect as a starter a few years ago, but this will be his first start at any level since 2015. He did pitch six relief innings in a game last month and threw 2 1/3 innings on September 22 in his last appearance, but obviously he'll be pretty limited from a workload perspective.
Sep 29 - 3:49 PM

Trey Mancini went 2-for-4 and scored a run against the Pirates in Wednesday's loss.

He poked an infield single in the second inning, advanced to third on a Chance Sisco double and then scored on a J.J. Hardy ground-out. The outfielder has delivered an unexpectedly-good rookie season, slashing .294/.337/.493 with 24 home runs and 78 RBI in 144 games.
Sep 27 - 10:03 PM

Anthony Santander went 3-for-4 and drove in a run during Wednesday's loss to the Pirates.

The outfielder doubled twice in the ballgame, including one in the second inning that plated Chance Sisco to give the Orioles a short-lived 3-1 lead. The 22-year-old was plucked from the Indians in the Rule 5 draft last winter and spent almost all of this season on the disabled list with a forearm strain. He played last year at high Single-A ball where he hit .290 with 20 homers and 95 RBI.
Sep 27 - 9:58 PM

Gabriel Ynoa allowed four runs in three innings and was charged with a loss to the Pirates on Wednesday.

The longball was his undoing as he served up taters to Gregory Polanco and Josh Bell in the brief start. He registered three strikeouts, one walk and five base hits while falling to 2-3 with a 4.15 ERA in 9 games (four starts). He has 26 strikeouts and eight walks in 34 2/3 innings. The 24-year-old rookie spent most of the season at Triple-A Norfolk where he had a 5.25 ERA in 21 starts.
Sep 27 - 9:52 PM

Kevin Gausman is expected to start on Sunday against the Rays.

Gausman would get the start in place of Jeremy Hellickson (back). The right-hander has posted an 11-11 record so far in 2017 with 170 strikeouts in 179 innings along with a 4.80 ERA.
