Trey Mancini bashed his 14th home run of the season Sunday in the Orioles’ victory over the Rays.

He ended Jake Odorizzi’s outing by belting a one-out solo shot in the sixth inning. That would be his only hit of the afternoon. The 25-year-old has caught fire recently, hitting an absurd .474 during his five-game hitting streak. If he had enough at-bats to qualify, Mancini's .321 average would be fourth-highest in the American League.

Jonathan Schoop provided a pair of hits Sunday in the Orioles’ win over Tampa Bay.

Schoop singled to center field in the first before smacking a 378-foot homer off Chase Whitley to knot the game at five in the eighth inning. He was also hit twice, including once with the bases-loaded in the ninth inning. The 25-year-old has been a beast offensively, delivering 15 homers with a .295 average over 268 at-bats this season.

Chris Tillman didn’t have it Sunday against the Rays, relinquishing eight hits and five runs (four earned) over 4 1/3 lackluster innings in a no-decision.

He registered five strikeouts while yielding a pair of free passes. Things were going alright for Tillman until Evan Longoria burned him for a three-run bomb in the fifth inning. Tillman also committed a throwing error that led to a run in the fourth. The right-hander has produced a hideous 8.39 ERA this year and hasn’t won since his season debut on May 7. He’ll get another stab at the Rays next Friday at Camden Yards.

Zach Britton (forearm) is aiming to rejoin the Orioles' bullpen on July 5.

Britton has tossed three scoreless innings so far on his rehab assignment with Low-A Delmarva. He'll move up to Double-A Bowie to pitch Monday and Thursday, then go to High-A Frederick and finally to Triple-A Norfolk. Assuming he continues to progress without any setbacks, Britton will be activated on July 5, five games before the All-Star break.

Orioles recalled RHP Stefan Crichton from Triple-A Norfolk.

Crichton has been up and down between the majors and minors many times this season, ultimately posting an 8.49 ERA over seven relief appearances so far with the big club. He'll be used in low-leverage situations.
Jun 25 - 8:34 AM

Orioles optioned RHP Miguel Castro to Double-A Bowie.

Castro holds a 4.09 ERA over eight relief appearances in the majors this season. Stefan Crichton is replacing him in the bullpen.

Trey Mancini went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's 8-3 win over the Rays.

All the 25-year-old seems to do is hit, smashing his 13th homer of the year -- a two-run blast -- off Rays reliever Jumbo Diaz in the seventh inning. He's now hitting an impressive .370 (30-for-81) with six homers in June, basically forcing O's manager Buck Showalter to pencil him into the lineup every day. Overall, Mancini is hitting .322/.368/.580 in 60 games.
Jun 24 - 7:35 PM

Mark Trumbo went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in a win over the Rays on Saturday.

The game was the fifth in his last eight contests in which Trumbo has registered multiple hits. He also walked in the game, giving him 26 walks in 74 games after walking a career-high 51 times last year. That increased ability to get on base -- his current .322 OBP would be the best mark of his career -- has allowed him to score 47 runs to date, among the most in the American League. The 31-year-old is hitting .262/.322/.405 with 10 homers and 35 RBI as well.
Jun 24 - 7:33 PM

Welington Castillo hit a two-run home run, his eighth of the year, in Saturday's win over the Rays.

Castillo took Rays rookie Jacob Faria deep for the two-run shot in the second inning. He's well on his way to his fourth consecutive season with double-digit homers, and he's now got four homers since returning from the disabled list on June 10. The 30-year-old backstop is hitting a healthy .284/.316/.462 in 43 games this year.
Jun 24 - 7:29 PM

Dylan Bundy struck out eight while allowing three runs over seven innings in Saturday's win over the Rays.

Bundy has had highs and lows this season, and Saturday's start was no different. The good -- three earned runs, eight strikeouts over seven innings -- outweighted the not-so-good -- two homers allowed, and four walks as well -- to improve his record to 8-6 through 16 starts. He's got a 3.73 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in those 16 outings. He'll have a chance to make it two in a row against the Rays when the two clubs face off again Friday.
Jun 24 - 7:28 PM

Trey Mancini went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI as the Orioles were crushed by the Rays on Friday night.

Mancini got the O's on the board with a run-scoring single in the second inning, then capped off their scoring with an RBI double in the sixth. He has been a tremendous bright spot in the middle of the O's lineup this season, slashing a robust .317/.358/.564 with 12 homers and 40 RBI.
Jun 23 - 10:39 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez was destroyed in Friday's loss to the Rays, giving up nine runs on seven hits over 2 1/3 innings.

Jimenez also issued four walks while striking out just one. The Rays jumped on him right out of the gate, scoring four times in the first, once in the second and adding four more while chasing him in the third. How this guy continues to get chances in the Orioles' rotation is beyond me. He owns a horrifying 7.26 ERA and 1.61 WHIP on the season. Perhaps this start will be the final straw that leads to Jimenez getting designated for assignment.
Jun 23 - 10:36 PM

Orioles activated RHP Darren O'Day from the 10-day disabled list.

O'Day has been out for over two weeks with a strained shoulder, but he made it through a few throwing sessions of late with no issues. He'll return to a setup role.
Jun 23 - 3:00 PM

Seth Smith hit his eighth home run of the season in Thursday's loss to the Indians.

It looked like it might be the Orioles' night after Smith led off the bottom of the first inning with a solo shot off Indians starter Mike Clevinger, but that was the last time the O's would lead in the game. Smith finished 1-for-4 with the homer, his eighth of the season. In his first season in Baltimore, the 34-year-old is hitting a productive .272/.347/.473 while batting primarily leadoff for the Birds.
Jun 23 - 12:04 AM

Wade Miley allowed eight hits and four runs over five innings in a loss to the Indians on Thursday.

Miley walked two and struck out just three in the outing. After a strong turn on June 1, the southpaw's ERA sat at 2.82; now, less than a month later, it's 4.48. The real Miley is somewhere between his stellar first two months and his miserable month of June to date, but it's not a particularly useful one for our purposes. The 30-year-old will look to right the ship against the Blue Jays when the two meet Wednesday.
