Miguel Gonzalez lasted 5 1/3 innings, allowing three runs in a loss to the Athletics on Tuesday.

Gonzalez traded zeroes with opposing starter Chris Bassitt for the first four innings, but relented an RBI single to Billy Burns in the fifth. In the sixth, Brett Lawrie hit an RBI triple, and he'd later score on a home run. He gave up five hits overall with three walks and five strikeouts. Gonzalez now has a 4.32 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP, and an 86/36 K/BB ratio over 114 2/3 innings. He'll take on the Mariners in Seattle next.
Aug 5 - 1:04 AM

Orioles recalled LHP T.J. McFarland from Triple-A Norfolk.

He'll serve as a long reliever for the O's. McFarland holds a 2.70 ERA and 2.03 WHIP over 12 relief appearances this season.
Aug 4 - 6:35 PM

Orioles optioned RHP Tyler Wilson to Triple-A Norfolk.

Wilson was terrific in a spot start Monday, holding the A's to two runs over 7 2/3 innings. Chris Tillman (ankle) is due back later this week, though, so the O's no longer had a need for Wilson. He'll be back in September, if not sooner.
Aug 4 - 6:34 PM

Caleb Joseph hit an RBI double and a two-run home run in four at-bats on Monday, helping the Orioles to a 9-2 win against the Athletics.

Joseph made it a 6-0 game with a two-run home run off of Jesse Chavez in the fourth inning. He tacked on an RBI double in the fifth inning to make it 8-1. Splitting time with Matt Wieters behind the plate, Joseph is hitting .250/.325/.429 with nine home runs and 37 RBI.
Aug 4 - 1:02 AM

Chris Davis went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run in Monday's win versus the Athletics.

Davis gave the Orioles a 3-0 lead in the first inning when he took Jesse Chavez yard with a pair of ducks on the pond. He's homered in back-to-back games, and eight times in his last 13 games. Davis now owns a .245/.325/.508 batting line with 27 home runs and 75 RBI.
Aug 4 - 1:00 AM

Tyler Wilson held the Athletics to two runs in 7 2/3 innings, earning a win in a spot start on Monday.

Wilson scattered six hits and a pair of walks with three strikeouts. He allowed a run in the fourth inning on an RBI single to Ike Davis, and the other on an RBI double from Stephen Vogt in the eighth. The right-hander has been effective in 24 2/3 innings in the majors this year, sporting a 2.19 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and a 7/5 K/BB ratio.
Aug 4 - 12:56 AM

Chris Tillman (ankle) threw on flat ground from 90 feet Monday and is hoping to throw a bullpen session Wednesday.

Tillman had to be scratched from Monday's scheduled start due to a sprained right ankle, but he should be ready to rejoin the rotation later this week. The right-hander has been on a roll of late with a 1.09 ERA over his last six starts.
Aug 3 - 7:21 PM

Chris Davis went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run in Sunday's 6-1 loss to the Tigers.

Davis provided the only blemish on the afternoon for the Tigers' young lefty Daniel Norris, homering in the fourth inning. The 1B/OF has matched last year's home run total at 26, and has also knocked in 72 runs while hitting .245/.327/.504.
Aug 2 - 5:18 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez served up six runs in 4 2/3 innings, losing to the Tigers on Sunday.

J.D. Martinez put Jimenez behind the eight-ball early, driving a three-run home run in the first inning. The Tigers then rallied for three runs on four two-out hits in the fifth, chasing the right-hander from the game. Overall, he allowed six hits and a walk while striking out only two. Jimenez has been hot-and-cold as of late, currently owning a 4.04 ERA with a 1.34 WHIP and a 110/39 K/BB ratio over 118 innings. He'll attempt to rebound in a road start versus the Angels.
Aug 2 - 5:16 PM

Orioles optioned RHP Jorge Rondon to Triple-A Norfolk.

Rondon was just with the club for two games to provide emergency depth in the bullpen. He did a terrific job on Sunday, hurling 3 1/3 scoreless innings against the Tigers, allowing three hits and striking out one. He should get another chance with the big league club soon.
Aug 2 - 5:13 PM

Orioles recalled RHP Tyler Wilson from Triple-A Norfolk.

He'll draw a spot start for the Orioles on Monday against the Athletics in Oakland. The 25-year-old hurler has appeared in five games for the O's this season, compiling a 2.12 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 4/3 K/BB ratio in 17 innings. He doesn't make for a very attractive streaming option in mixed leagues.
Aug 2 - 4:37 PM

Steve Pearce (oblique) hopes to throw and swing a bat this week.

Pearce to this point has been limited to rest and treatment since straining his left oblique two weeks ago, but he said he was finally pain-free on Saturday. He might need a couple rehab games but doesn't appear too far off from a return if he can avoid a setback.
Aug 2 - 9:22 AM

Kevin Gausman evened his record at 2-2 Saturday in a win over the Tigers.

He limited Detroit to four hits and two runs over seven solid innings. Gausman struck out six without allowing a walk. The 24-year-old hadn't won a decision since April 7. He'll look for win No. 3 next time out against the Angels.
Aug 1 - 10:01 PM

Manny Machado homered for the second game in a row Saturday in a win over the Tigers.

He's hit .381 with four RBI over his five-game hitting streak. Among big league third basemen, Machado is fourth in slugging percentage (.525) and second in OPS (.890). The 23-year-old has emerged as a legitimate MVP candidate and is a big reason why the Orioles are only a half-game behind Minnesota in the AL Wild Card Race.
Aug 1 - 9:56 PM

Chris Tillman (ankle) is not expected to make his scheduled start Monday against the Athletics.

His sprained ankle is feeling better but he's not ready to pitch yet. The Orioles are optimistic Tillman won't require a trip to the disabled list. It's unclear who would start in his place, though Tyler Wilson could be a possibility. Tillman hurled a gem in his last outing, scattering four hits over 8 2/3 shutout innings Wednesday in a win against the Braves.
