Orioles optioned RHP Alec Asher to Triple-A Norfolk.

Asher allowed three hits and a walk in two scoreless innings of relief Tuesday versus the Athletics. He was only up in the majors for two days.

Ubaldo Jimenez was touched up for five runs on nine hits and a walk over five frames in Tuesday’s loss to the Athletics.

Jimenez struck out 11 A’s batters in a start in Oakland earlier this month. He whiffed just four in this one and that’s only one more than the number of home runs he surrendered, as Ryon Healy got him twice and Jed Lowrie also took him deep. Jimenez had mostly pitched pretty well the last month or so, but he’s now put up two straight clunkers. He gets the Mariners next.

Manny Machado smacked a two-run homer Tuesday against the Athletics.

The Orioles were unable to solve starter Paul Blackburn, but they perked up a bit after he left with an injury and it started with Machado's blast off of Simon Castro in the sixth inning. It's the third baseman's ninth longball this month.

J.J. Hardy (wrist) finished 1-for-2 with a walk and a run scored Wednesday in his second rehab game with Triple-A Norfolk.

Hardy also made a throwing error in an active but abbreviated night on the farm. He's likely to remain in the minors through the weekend given that he's missed two months with a fractured wrist. Tim Beckham will continue to plant his flag at the shortstop position.

J.J. Hardy (wrist) went 0-for-3 with two walks Monday in his first rehab game with Triple-A Norfolk.

Hardy has been out for two months with a fractured wrist. The veteran shortstop will likely need several more games in the minors and appears on track for a return around the start of September. It's hard to justify putting him back in the lineup with the way Tim Beckham has been playing.
Aug 22 - 9:14 AM

Adam Jones finished 4-for-4 with a pair of solo homers Monday in the Orioles' 7-3 win over the Athletics.

Jones went deep off A's starter Chris Smith in the bottom of the fourth inning and then tagged A's reliever Ryan Dull in the bottom of the fifth. He also peppered in two singles, finishing with three total runs scored in the victory at Camden Yards. The veteran center fielder has nine multi-hit games in August and he's up to 24 homers, 63 RBI, and 69 runs in 117 games this year.

Zach Britton tallied his 11th save of the season on Monday night against the Athletics.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter turned to his closer to secure the final out after Khris Davis reached on a fielding error and Alec Asher issued a two-out walk to Matt Chapman, putting two men on and the tying run in the on-deck circle. Britton, who's been pretty sharp over the last three weeks, needed just four pitches to induce a game-ending groundout from Bruce Maxwell.
Aug 21 - 10:23 PM

Jonathan Schoop belted a three-run homer Monday in the Orioles' defeat of the Athletics.

The three-run shot off A's starter Chris Smith gave Baltimore a 5-1 advantage in the bottom of the fifth inning. Schoop also had a big showing in Sunday's series finale against the Angels and he now boasts a .302/.351/.538 slash line with 27 home runs and 91 RBI over 123 total games this season.
Aug 21 - 10:21 PM

Wade Miley held the Athletics to two earned runs over six-plus innings Monday for his seventh win of the season.

Miley again struggled with free passes, issuing four of them, but he easily out-dueled A's starter Chris Smith and the Orioles' offense backed the 30-year-old left-hander with seven runs of support. Miley yielded five hits and struck out six while working into the top of the seventh inning. He's now 7-10 on the year with a 5.11 ERA, 1.68 WHIP, and 118/76 K/BB ratio in 26 starts covering 132 frames.
Aug 21 - 10:20 PM

Orioles released INF Paul Janish.

Janish is retiring from baseball and will take a coaching position at Rice University starting next season. The 34-year-old hit only .212/.280/.284 over parts of nine seasons in the majors, but he was able to sustain a nice little career on the strength of his glove and versatility.
Aug 21 - 4:48 PM

Chris Tillman yielded four earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Sunday in a no-decision versus the Angels.

Tillman issued six walks and gave up four hits, including two home runs, in the eventual 5-4 loss to the visiting Halos. Tillman is 1-7 with a hideous 7.75 ERA and 1.99 WHIP in 74 1/3 innings this season.
Aug 20 - 5:15 PM

Chris Davis (illness) is back in the Orioles' lineup Sunday.

Davis missed the last two games with an illness, but he's feeling well enough to give it a go Sunday. He's at first base and batting seventh against Parker Bridwell and the Angels.
Aug 20 - 11:30 AM

J.J. Hardy (wrist) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Norfolk on Monday.

He hasn't played in two months due to a fractured wrist, so Hardy figures to need a good number of rehab games. He's also not guaranteed a starting job once he returns with Tim Beckham playing so well.
Aug 20 - 11:23 AM

Orioles recalled RHP Alec Asher from Triple-A Norfolk.

Asher has posted a 5.53 ERA over 21 appearances -- six starts -- for the Orioles this season. He'll give the bullpen some length.
Aug 20 - 11:21 AM

Orioles placed RHP Miguel Castro on the bereavement list.

He can be away for 3-7 days. Castro pitched 4 2/3 scoreless relief innings the last two days. Alec Asher is replacing him in the bullpen.
