Adam Jones hit a leadoff home run in a loss to the Twins on Thursday.

Jones jumped on the first pitch of the game from Twins starter Kyle Gibson, roping it just over the wall in left center. Jones also had a double in the game, finishing 2-for-4. The 30-year-old now has 19 homers after a slow start, batting .269/.317/.455 with 59 RBI and 63 runs scored.

Ubaldo Jimenez struck out eight while allowing just one run Thursday against the Twins.

Jimenez gave up five hits and walked three, but he managed to limit the damage for most of the evening. Unfortunately for Jimenez, the O's bullpen couldn't keep his lead, saddling him with a no-decision. It was nonetheless a promising turn for the 32-year-old, who had been kept on the sidelines -- and rumored to be offered in trade negotiations -- since the All-Star break. If Jimenez is given another start, it will likely come Wednesday against the Rangers.

Orioles sent OF Henry Urrutia outright to Double-A Bowie.

Urrutia was designated for assignment by the Orioles on July 19 and passed through waivers unclaimed. He is batting .280/.339/.372 this year in the minors.

Dylan Bundy gave up three runs while garnering eight strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings and took a loss to the Rockies on Wednesday.

He allowed only two base hits but both of them were home runs. Bundy was making his third consecutive start after making 21 relief appearances earlier this season. He has a solid 3.46 ERA with 49 strikeouts in 52 innings. A few years ago he was the top pitching prospect in baseball. After several injury-ravaged seasons, Bundy is now healthy and pitching effectively in the majors at the age of 23. He is an attractive commodity in keeper and dynasty leagues.

Manny Machado cracked a solo home run for his only hit and the Orioles' only run of the night on Wednesday.

Machado is having a fantastic season. Now slashing .311/.369/.552 with 21 longballs, 68 runs and 57 RBI. The only thing he doesn't do is run -- he hasn't stolen a base all year after swiping 20 last year.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said that Vance Worley will probably be skipped over in the rotation against the Blue Jays this weekend.

Per Showalter, Worley should be available out of the bullpen for the key weekend series between the two AL East contenders. Worley should feel comfortable enough there -- the 29-year-old right-hander has actually mostly pitched out of the pen this season, with 22 relief appearances compared to just four starts. Depending on how the Orioles want to play this, he could return to a starting role next week.

Chris Tillman took just his third loss of the year after giving up six runs in five innings Tuesday against the Rockies.

It breaks up a string of four straight outings of exactly seven innings and one run allowed. Tillman has a tough matchup in Toronto against the Blue Jays next time out. Mixed leaguers might want to avoid that one.

Adam Jones homered and walked twice Tuesday against the Rockies.

Jones had been struggling out of the leadoff spot this month, hitting .256/.279/.317 with one homer and three walks in 82 at-bats. He's still not a great fit at all up there, but tonight's game will ensure that he keeps the spot a little while longer.
Jul 26 - 10:12 PM

Chris Davis went 0-for-3 with a walk on Tuesday to drop his OPS back under .800.

Davis was up to .876 after homering five times in seven games from June 25-July 2, but he's just 6-for-58 with one homer in his last 16 games. He's still on pace for 38 homers and 101 RBI this year, but he's not justifying his $23 million salary at the moment.
Jul 26 - 10:11 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez will make a spot start for the Orioles on Thursday against the Twins.

Jimenez hasn't pitched since July 8 and he's sitting on a 7.38 ERA. He is obviously a poor fantasy streaming option, even against the light-hitting Minnesota lineup.
Jul 26 - 10:09 PM

Orioles designated OF Julio Borbon for assignment.

Borbon was 2-for-9 in his short stay at the major league level. He will probably clear waivers.
Jul 26 - 5:43 PM

Hunter Harvey underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery on Tuesday.

The procedure went according to plan. Harvey will be sidelined for the next 12-18 months.
Jul 26 - 4:31 PM

Orioles activated OF Hyun Soo Kim from the 15-day disabled list.

Kim is starting in left field and batting second Tuesday night against the Rockies after missing the last 15 days with a strained right hamstring. He returns to an impressive .329/.410/.454 batting line.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Kim slots into a very favorable slot in the order between Jones, Machado, Davis and Trumbo, giving him very nice upside at an affordable price tag across the industry. He's the owner of a .399 wOBA, .135 ISO and 35.0 hard%, not to mention that he has one of the higher average exit velocities on the year at 92.5 MPH. That mark puts him above guys like Edwin Encarnacion, Michael Saunders, Buster Posey and Albert Pujols.

Orioles activated RHP Ubaldo Jimenez from the paternity leave list.

Jimenez was away from the O's for three days as his wife gave birth. He could start Thursday against the Twins, but if that doesn't happen it's back to long relief.
Jul 26 - 4:05 PM

Orioles optioned OF Dariel Alvarez to Triple-A Norfolk.

The move is expected to clear the way for Hyun Soo Kim to return from the disabled list. Alvarez is 1-for-3 with a double in two games with the Orioles this season and should be back later this summer.
