Hyun Soo Kim went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two RBI in Thursday's loss to the Mariners.

Kim cracked a solo home run off Mariners starter Taijuan Walker to lead off the seventh inning. One inning later, he notched an RBI single. The 28-year-old rookie has been used as a part-time piece this season and is hitting a crisp .344/.433/.484 with eight doubles, three homers and 11 RBI across 122 at-bats.

Chris Tillman struggled in Thursday's loss to the Mariners, surrendering four runs on six hits over 4 2/3 innings.

In general, this was just a drag of a start for Tillman. He walked three and struck out three on the evening, with Seth Smith accounting for half of the damage on his line with a two-run homer in the fifth inning. Tillman still holds a serviceable 3.71 ERA and 1.25 WHIP, but has allowed at least four runs in each of his last three starts. He will try to put an end to that trend in his final start before the All-Star Break, a road date with the Dodgers.

Ubaldo Jimenez will start Sunday's game against the Mariners.

Jimenez is slowly winning back Buck Showalter's trust after being dropped from the rotation earlier this month. He scattered three hits and one run over five solid innings in his last outing Tuesday against San Diego. Since rejoining the rotation on June 22, Jimenez has lowered his ERA from 7.34 to 6.63.

Orioles optioned RHP Oliver Drake to Triple-A Norfolk.

Drake has had back-to-back rough outings, allowing six runs in only 2 1/3 innings against the Padres earlier this week. The 29-year-old should have more chances in Baltimore as the year rolls on.
Jun 30 - 9:45 PM

Orioles optioned C Francisco Pena to Triple-A Norfolk.

He's no longer needed now that backup catcher Caleb Joseph is back after missing a month with a groin injury. Pena hit .219 with one homer and three RBI during his nine-game stint with Baltimore. He'll be called up again the next time an Orioles catcher gets hurt.
Jun 30 - 9:41 PM

Orioles activated C Caleb Joseph from the 15-day disabled list.

The Orioles made room for Joseph by optioning Francisco Pena to Triple-A Norfolk. Joseph needed a month to recover from a testicular injury that required surgery. He'll return to his usual backup role behind starting catcher Matt Wieters.
Jun 30 - 9:38 PM

Orioles activated RHP Vance Worley from the 15-day disabled list.

A strained groin sidelined him for about two weeks. The 28-year-old has enjoyed a successful year out of the bullpen, providing a 2.66 ERA over 40 2/3 innings. He'll continue to work as the Orioles' primary long reliever.
Jun 30 - 9:33 PM

Orioles purchased the contract of RHP Chaz Roe from Triple-A Norfolk.

Roe was called up to replace T.J. McFarland, who is headed to the disabled list with left knee inflammation. The 29-year-old has recorded a stellar 2.39 ERA in 33 outings for Norfolk this season. Roe made 36 appearances out of the Baltimore pen last year while posting a 4.14 ERA in 41 1/3 innings.
Jun 30 - 9:12 PM

Orioles placed LHP T.J. McFarland on the 15-day disabled list with left knee inflammation.

McFarland had been pitching through the injury but the Orioles decided giving him an extended rest was the best course of action. Chaz Roe has been called up to take McFarland's spot in the Orioles' bullpen. McFarland carries a disappointing 5.63 ERA over 15 outings this year.
Jun 30 - 9:07 PM

Mark Trumbo homered, doubled and knocked in four runs in the Orioles' 12-6 win over the Padres on Wednesday.

Trumbo leads the majors with 23 homers and is fourth with 60 RBI. Not bad for a guy who was acquired for next to nothing from the Mariners over the winter.
Jun 29 - 7:41 PM

Yovani Gallardo yielded three runs and three hits in six innings Wednesday against the Padres.

The Orioles have won all three of Gallardo's starts since he came off the disabled list, but he hasn't inspired all that much confidence yet with his 4.40 ERA, 14/9 K/BB ratio and three homers allowed in those outings. He's remains a long shot to turn into an asset in fantasy leagues.
Jun 29 - 7:39 PM

Jonathan Schoop doubled twice, walked and scored three times Wednesday against the Padres.

Not only is Schoop hitting, but he even has seven walks this month. He had five in the first two months combined. With the Orioles offense red-hot, Schoop has scored 18 runs in his last 11 games.
Jun 29 - 7:34 PM

Caleb Joseph (groin) could be cleared to join the Orioles after a rehab game Wednesday with High-A Frederick.

Joseph began a rehab assignment two weeks ago and returned to the plate on Monday. If all goes well, he'll rejoin the Orioles on Thursday in Seattle. Joseph has been on the disabled list since May 31 with a testicular injury that required surgery.
Jun 29 - 2:25 PM

Vance Worley (groin) is traveling to Seattle to join the Orioles.

Worley has been out for two weeks with a right groin strain, but he's on track to be activated for the series opener against the Mariners on Thursday. The 28-year-old owns a 2.66 ERA with a 33/13 K/BB ratio covering 40 2/3 innings this season.
Jun 29 - 2:22 PM

Matt Wieters is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Padres.

He'll get some rest with the day game. Francisco Pena will start behind the dish and catch Yovani Gallardo.
