Orioles activated RHP Tyler Wilson from the 15-day disabled list, optioned him to Triple-A Norfolk.

Wilson has been dealing with a strained left oblique since early August. He'll continue to provide rotation depth in the minor leagues and could join the bullpen at some point in September.
Sep 5 - 9:00 AM

Orioles purchased the contract of OF Nolan Reimold from Triple-A Norfolk.

The 31-year-old has appeared in 39 games for the O's this season, slashing .227/.306/.340 with a pair of homers and eight RBI. He'll provide extra depth on the bench over the final month of the season.
Sep 5 - 8:52 AM

Chris Davis mashed another pair of home runs on Friday as the Orioles thrashed the Blue Jays 10-2 in Toronto.

Davis got the O's on the board with a solo blast off Drew Hutchison in the second inning, and added on a two-run shot in the sixth. The 29-year-old slugger has been absolutely locked in at the plate, clobbering five home runs in his last three games, including two consecutive multi-homer games. With his 2-for-5 effort, Davis is now slashing .253/.338/.545 with 40 home runs and 100 RBI. It's the second time in his career that he has crossed each of those milestones.
Sep 4 - 10:46 PM

Despite matching his season-high by issuing six walks, Ubaldo Jimenez picked up his 10th victory of the season on Friday, limiting the Blue Jays to two runs (one earned) on four hits over 5 2/3 innings.

Jimenez struck out four on the evening. The 31-year-old hurler had been extremely inconsistent this season, compiling a 4.24 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 138/56 K/BB ratio across 153 innings. He'll look for improved command when he takes the hill against the Yankees in New York on Wednesday.
Sep 4 - 10:40 PM

Orioles placed RHP Miguel Gonzalez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 31, with right shoulder and elbow inflammation.

The move was made so that Jorge Rondon could be added to the roster, as he was sent down fewer than 10 days ago. Gonzalez hopes to return before the end of the season, but it's not a given. Mike Wright is taking his spot in the rotation.
Sep 4 - 3:45 PM

Orioles recalled RHP Jorge Rondon from Triple-A Norfolk.

Rondon holds an 11.88 ERA over his five appearances in the majors this season. He'll be used in the middle innings.
Sep 4 - 3:43 PM

Orioles recalled OF Junior Lake from Triple-A Norfolk.

Lake went 2-for-14 at the plate last month for the O's. He'll see the occasional start in the outfield.
Sep 4 - 3:42 PM

Orioles activated RHP Mike Wright from the 15-day disabled list.

Wright has been sidelined since July 31 with a right calf strain. While he just threw 65 pitches in a minor league rehab appearance on Tuesday, he's a candidate to start against the Blue Jays on Saturday. The 25-year-old has a 4.99 ERA and 19/11 K/BB ratio in 30 2/3 innings over six starts and one relief appearance this season.
Sep 3 - 5:49 PM

Jorge Rondon has been placed on the Orioles' taxi squad.

Rondon is expected to be officially activated when Miguel Gonzalez (shoulder, elbow) is placed on the disabled lit. The 27-year-old was just sent down on August 27, so he's not eligible to return within 10 days unless there's an injury.
Sep 3 - 5:33 PM

Miguel Gonzalez (elbow, shoulder) is expected to be placed on the disabled list Friday.

Gonzalez felt discomfort in both his shoulder and elbow following his most recent start on Sunday, but tests revealed only inflammation. Still, he's going to get an extended rest. The 31-year-old has struggled to the tune of a 7.46 ERA over his last seven starts, so that's probably a good thing.
Sep 3 - 5:30 PM

Orioles optioned OF Dariel Alvarez to Class-A Frederick.

Alvarez won't be able to go on the team's road trip to Toronto this upcoming weekend, so the team sent him out in favor of another warm body. Alvarez should be back with the O's before long.
Sep 2 - 11:13 PM

Kevin Gausman lasted only 2 1/3 innings, allowing four runs (three earned), but got a no-decision as the Orioles won in 11 innings against the Rays on Wednesday.

Gausman served up all four runs in the third inning on a pair of home runs and a single. He allowed a swath of base runners on eight hits and two walks while striking out only one batter. It's the right-hander's shortest outing since moving into the rotation mid-season. Gausman now has a mediocre 4.59 ERA with a 1.25 WHIP and a 70/20 K/BB ratio over 82 1/3 innings. He'll look for better results at Yankee Stadium next week.
Sep 2 - 10:59 PM

Jonathan Schoop hit a game-tying two-run home run in the ninth inning, allowing the Orioles to eventually walk off winners in 11 innings against the Rays on Wednesday.

Schoop hammered a Brad Boxberger pitch out to left field to knot the game up at six apiece. The second baseman finished 1-for-4 on the night. He's batting .290/.317/.507 with 11 home runs and 32 RBI, proving he can be plenty productive when healthy.
Sep 2 - 10:53 PM

Chris Davis blasted a walk-off home run in the 11th inning to send the Rays home losers on Wednesday.

Teammate Jonathan Schoop played the hero in the ninth inning, hitting a game-tying two-run home run. Davis completed the comeback, belting a Matt Andriese offering over the fence in right-center in the 11th inning. It was his second homer of the game, as he also went yard in the third inning with a man aboard. Davis, with 38 home runs, is one behind Nelson Cruz for the major league lead. He has also knocked in 97 runs while batting .253/.339/.538.
Sep 2 - 10:51 PM

Dariel Alvarez won't play in the Orioles' weekend series against the Blue Jays due to visa issues.

Alvarez has not gotten his U.S. work visa finalized, so if he were to accompany the O's north of the border he wouldn't be allowed back into the country following the series. The team will likely instead option him to the minors for the series and recall a position player in his absence. Alvarez, 26, should see some time in the Orioles' outfield down the stretch.
