Manny Machado went 4-for-6 with a homer and four total RBI to lead the Orioles over the Nationals 10-8 on Wednesday.

Machado's two-run bomb in the first inning set the tone for the high-scoring night. He then added run-scoring singles in the second and eighth innings. The four hits raised his batting average to .306 in 494 at-bats. The home run was his 29th. Machado has scored 87 runs and driven in 78. He has yet to steal a base after swiping 20 last year, but that's kind of a side concern at this point for his fantasy owners.

Wade Miley earned a win against the Nationals by holding them to two runs over five innings on Wednesday.

He gave up seven hits, including a solo homer by Danny Espinosa. His six strikeouts helped quell some threats. It was a short outing but the Orioles will take it. Miley has not been good this year. Tonight's pleasant outing improves his record to 8-10 with an unsightly 5.51 ERA. His owners must soon decide if they are brave enough (or desperate enough) to use him in a two-start week against the Blue Jays and Yankees beginning on Monday.

Joey Rickard (thumb) will be reexamined on September 2.

Rickard's right thumb remains encased in a splint after he tore a ligament in it after running into a wall in late July. Manager Buck Showalter said that the hope here is that Rickard will be able to move rapidly in his rehab assuming everything checks out fine on September 2. The O's have maintained for some time that they believe that Rickard will be able to play again before the end of the season.

Orioles recalled RHP Mike Wright from Triple-A Norfolk.

Wright has registered a 5.97 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, and 48/26 K/BB ratio in 69 1/3 innings (12 starts, two relief appearances) this season for Baltimore. He is not fantasy relevant, no matter what role he fills.

Orioles placed RHP Chris Tillman on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 21, with right shoulder inflammation.

He is eligible to return from the disabled list September 5 and the O's are hoping he will be ready on that date. Tillman missed a start one week ago after complaining of shoulder discomfort and then got lit up for six earned runs over just two innings Saturday versus the Astros. That blunder aside, he has been the Orioles' most reliable pitcher in 2016 by far. Ubaldo Jimenez and his 6.94 ERA will start in Tillman's place Thursday versus the Nationals.

Ubaldo Jimenez will make a spot start for the Orioles on Thursday versus the Nationals.

He'll be filling in for Chris Tillman, who is headed to the 15-day disabled list with shoulder discomfort. Jimenez owns a 6.94 ERA and 1.91 WHIP in 18 starts and four relief appearances this season with Baltimore and shouldn't be trusted as a fantasy option against Washington.

Kevin Gausman twirled six shutout innings in Tuesday's 8-1 victory over the Nationals.

It wasn't all that pretty, as Gausman recorded only two strikeouts and needed 110 pitches to get through his six frames. However, five of the six hits he gave up were singles and he managed to keep the Nats off the scoreboard in his best start in a month. Gausman will carry a 3.92 ERA into the Bronx this weekend.

Chris Davis singled and smacked a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

He singled and scored in the Orioles' three-run third inning and then added an insurance run with a long homer in the eighth off of Yusmeiro Petit. The dinger was Crush's 30th of the season, giving him at least 30 bombs in four out of the last five campaigns. Six of those homers have come over his last seven games.
Aug 23 - 11:15 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Tuesday that Chris Tillman (shoulder) is likely headed to the 15-day disabled list.

Tillman has been bothered by shoulder discomfort for over a week and had a bad day of side work on Tuesday. He definitely won't be making his next scheduled start Thursday against the Nationals. Look for something more official out of Baltimore on Wednesday.
Aug 23 - 10:42 PM

Chris Tillman (shoulder) is now questionable for his Thursday start against the Nationals.

Tillman has been bothered by shoulder discomfort for the last few weeks and apparently had a bad between-starts workout on Tuesday afternoon. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he'll make a decision about the scheduled Thursday start on Wednesday. There probably won't be an update before then.
Aug 23 - 4:32 PM

Dylan Bundy held the Nationals to two runs over six innings of work in Monday's 4-3 win.

Bundy was a little wild, issuing a career-high four walks. He also served up a solo home run. However, the young right-hander surrendered just three hits on the night, throwing a career-high 94 pitches along the way. Bundy hasn't gotten many strikeouts of late but now boasts a 3.56 ERA since moving into the Orioles' rotation. He'll take on the Yankees in the Bronx this weekend.
Aug 22 - 10:27 PM

Zach Britton tossed a perfect ninth inning to record his 38th save of the season in Monday's win over the Nationals.

Tasked with protecting a one-run lead, Britton did it with ease with a groundout and a couple strikeouts. The dominant closer is now a perfect 38-for-38 in save opportunities this season. He still hasn't given up a run since April and has allowed just three hits over his last 15 appearances.
Aug 22 - 10:14 PM

Jonathan Schoop smacked a solo home run in Monday's victory over the Nationals.

Schoop's dinger to lead off the third inning was the Orioles' first hit of the game. They tacked on three more runs in the fourth, with Mark Trumbo joining Schoop in going deep. Schoop now has a career-high 20 home runs, giving the O's five players that have reached the 20-homer mark. Pedro Alvarez (19) will join the group at some point.
Aug 22 - 10:10 PM

Orioles optioned C Caleb Joseph to Triple-A Norfolk.

The move clears the way for Matt Wieters' return. Joseph should be back in September.
Aug 22 - 4:17 PM

Orioles activated C Matt Wieters from the paternity leave list.

Wieters was excused from the club on Saturday to welcome a child into the world. The impending free agent catcher is batting .240/.294/.381 with 10 home runs and 45 RBI in 340 plate appearances this season for the Orioles while earning a $15.8 million salary.
