Orioles optioned RHP Logan Ondrusek to Triple-A Norfolk.

Ondrusek's latest stint only lasted one day and he gave up three runs over an inning of work. He'll be back when rosters expand.
Aug 26 - 4:11 PM

Adam Jones (hamstring) is back in the Orioles' lineup Friday.

Jones exited Thursday's game with hamstring cramps, but he's fine. He's in center field and batting leadoff.
Aug 26 - 4:10 PM

Orioles activated LHP T.J. McFarland from the 15-day disabled list.

McFarland has been out for the last two months with left knee tendinitis. He'll be used in low-leverage situations.
Aug 26 - 3:42 PM

Adam Jones left Thursday's game against the Nationals due to hamstring cramps.

Pedro Alvarez pinch-hit for him in the ninth inning. He went 1-for-3 with a double before exiting. Jones said that he feels fine and expects to play Friday against the Yankees. Nolan Reimold would likely start in his place if he has to sit out the series opener.

Ubaldo Jimenez limited the Nationals to one run over six innings but took the loss Thursday.

Jimenez gave up just five hits without issuing a walk, but he and his Orioles teammates were just outclassed by Nats starter Max Scherzer. It was an unfortunate result for the right-hander, who was making a start in place of the injured Chris Tillman. He fell to 5-11 with the loss, now owning a 6.62 ERA and 1.85 WHIP on the year. The right-hander will likely get another turn given Thursday's performance, likely Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

Chris Tillman (shoulder) is expected to throw on flat ground on Tuesday.

Shoulder inflammation sent Tillman to the disabled list earlier this week but he's hoping to return after the minimum 15 days. The right-hander has easily been Baltimore's best starting pitcher this year with 15 wins and a respectable 3.76 ERA over 26 outings. Ubaldo Jimenez has absorbed Tillman's spot in the starting rotation.
Aug 25 - 6:58 PM

Orioles optioned RHP Parker Bridwell to Triple-A Norfolk.

Bridwell surrendered five earned runs in 3 1/3 innings out of the Baltimore bullpen during his short stay at the big league level. He could be back in September.
Aug 25 - 11:46 AM

Orioles recalled RHP Logan Ondrusek from Triple-A Norfolk.

Baltimore needs a fresh bullpen arm after a messy game Wednesday night against the Nationals, and with Ubaldo Jimenez scheduled to start on Thursday. Ondrusek, 31, has allowed four earned runs in 5 1/3 innings this season at the major league level.
Aug 25 - 11:44 AM

Manny Machado went 4-for-6 with a homer and four total RBI to lead the Orioles over the Nationals 10-8 on Wednesday.

Machado's two-run bomb in the first inning set the tone for the high-scoring night. He then added run-scoring singles in the second and eighth innings. The four hits raised his batting average to .306 in 494 at-bats. The home run was his 29th. Machado has scored 87 runs and driven in 78. He has yet to steal a base after swiping 20 last year, but that's kind of a side concern at this point for his fantasy owners.
Aug 25 - 12:13 AM

Wade Miley earned a win against the Nationals by holding them to two runs over five innings on Wednesday.

He gave up seven hits, including a solo homer by Danny Espinosa. His six strikeouts helped quell some threats. It was a short outing but the Orioles will take it. Miley has not been good this year. Tonight's pleasant outing improves his record to 8-10 with an unsightly 5.51 ERA. His owners must soon decide if they are brave enough (or desperate enough) to use him in a two-start week against the Blue Jays and Yankees beginning on Monday.
Aug 25 - 12:07 AM

Joey Rickard (thumb) will be reexamined on September 2.

Rickard's right thumb remains encased in a splint after he tore a ligament in it after running into a wall in late July. Manager Buck Showalter said that the hope here is that Rickard will be able to move rapidly in his rehab assuming everything checks out fine on September 2. The O's have maintained for some time that they believe that Rickard will be able to play again before the end of the season.
Aug 24 - 5:57 PM

Orioles recalled RHP Mike Wright from Triple-A Norfolk.

Wright has registered a 5.97 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, and 48/26 K/BB ratio in 69 1/3 innings (12 starts, two relief appearances) this season for Baltimore. He is not fantasy relevant, no matter what role he fills.
Aug 24 - 3:28 PM

Orioles placed RHP Chris Tillman on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 21, with right shoulder inflammation.

He is eligible to return from the disabled list September 5 and the O's are hoping he will be ready on that date. Tillman missed a start one week ago after complaining of shoulder discomfort and then got lit up for six earned runs over just two innings Saturday versus the Astros. That blunder aside, he has been the Orioles' most reliable pitcher in 2016 by far. Ubaldo Jimenez and his 6.94 ERA will start in Tillman's place Thursday versus the Nationals.
Aug 24 - 9:33 AM

Ubaldo Jimenez will make a spot start for the Orioles on Thursday versus the Nationals.

He'll be filling in for Chris Tillman, who is headed to the 15-day disabled list with shoulder discomfort. Jimenez owns a 6.94 ERA and 1.91 WHIP in 18 starts and four relief appearances this season with Baltimore and shouldn't be trusted as a fantasy option against Washington.
Aug 23 - 11:32 PM

Kevin Gausman twirled six shutout innings in Tuesday's 8-1 victory over the Nationals.

It wasn't all that pretty, as Gausman recorded only two strikeouts and needed 110 pitches to get through his six frames. However, five of the six hits he gave up were singles and he managed to keep the Nats off the scoreboard in his best start in a month. Gausman will carry a 3.92 ERA into the Bronx this weekend.
