Wei-Yin Chen tossed seven innings of two-run ball, but was left with a no-decision as the Orioles lost 4-2 to the Twins in 10 innings on Monday.

Chen allowed four hits and three walks while striking out five. Like opposing starter Phil Hughes, the only two runs the lefty allowed scored on solo home runs: to Torii Hunter in the first inning and to Aaron Hicks in the second. Chen's underrated season continues, as he is brandishing a 2.82 ERA with a 1.10 WHIP and an 83/25 K/BB ratio in 102 innings. He will close out the first half with a home start against the Nationals.

Adam Jones went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Monday's 10-inning loss to the Twins.

Jones created a 2-2 tie in the sixth inning when he hit a solo home run off of Phil Hughes. The 29-year-old on Monday was named to his fifth All-Star team. He's currently batting .285/.332/.470 with 11 home runs and 39 RBI.
Jul 6 - 11:07 PM

Manny Machado, on his 23rd birthday, went 2-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run, but the Orioles were unable to stave off the Twins on Monday.

Machado gave the Orioles an early 1-0 lead with a solo home run against Phil Hughes. He's having a career year, batting .301/.360/.531 with 18 home runs, 47 RBI, and 13 stolen bases. Machado has been named to the AL All-Star team, but starting honors have gone to Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson.

Orioles recalled INF Ryan Flaherty from Triple-A Norfolk.

He was just sent down over the weekend, but he's back to take the roster spot of Nolan Reimold, who is going on paternity leave. Flaherty could be sent back down in a couple days.
Jul 6 - 4:44 PM

Orioles placed OF Nolan Reimold on the paternity leave list.

He can be away from the club for up to three days. Ryan Flaherty has assumed Reimold's spot on the roster.
Jul 6 - 4:42 PM

Caleb Joseph went 1-for-4 with a two-run double in Sunday's win over the White Sox.

Joseph put the Orioles up 4-0 with his two-run double in the sixth inning, then capped off a four-run seventh inning with a run-scoring ground out. In 181 at-bats this season, he's slashing .238/.312/.376 with five homers and 24 RBI. Considering his limited at-bats, it's been a productive enough season, though there's no fantasy intrigue here.
Jul 5 - 5:51 PM

Miguel Gonzalez pitched well in Sunday's win over the White Sox, yielding one run on four hits over six innings.

Gonzalez struck out three and walked one in the contest. Melky Cabrera struck him for an RBI double in the sixth inning, but it was otherwise an uneventful start for the 31-year-old right-hander. The start could be viewed as a microcosm of his season. Solid, if unspectacular, as he now holds a 7-5 record, 3.87 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 67/28 K/BB ratio over 88 1/3 innings. The Orioles will certain take this kind of reliability, as should those who happen to own him in deeper AL-only formats. He'll take to the road against the Nationals in his last start before the All-Star Break.

Matt Wieters is not in the Orioles' lineup Sunday.

It's a simple day off. Caleb Joseph is catching while Wieters rests.
Jul 5 - 11:40 AM

Orioles optioned 2B Ryan Flaherty to Triple-A Norfolk.

The Orioles needed to make room for Jonathan Schoop. Flaherty could return to the roster as soon as Monday. That's when the O's are expected to place Nolan Reimold on the paternity list. Usually when someone gets sent down they have to stay in the minors for a minimum of 10 days, but that doesn't apply to players on paternity leave.
Jul 4 - 6:25 PM

Nolan Reimold is expected to go on the paternity list after Sunday's game.

He can be away from the team for up to three days. The 31-year-old has played sparingly this year, making just 38 at-bats over 16 games. The 10-day minor league rehab window doesn't apply to players on paternity leave. That allows Ryan Flaherty to take Reimold's roster spot even though he was just optioned on Saturday.
Jul 4 - 6:13 PM

Orioles activated Jonathan Schoop (knee) from the 60-day disabled list.

He rejoined the Orioles in Chicago Saturday after completing a 10-game rehab assignment with Double-A Bowie and High-A Frederick. The 23-year-old hit .259 in nine games before a sprained PCL sent him to the disabled list in mid-April. Ryan Flaherty was optioned in the corresponding roster move.
Jul 4 - 6:03 PM

Manny Machado blasted his 17th home run of the season in a losing effort against the White Son on Saturday.

His two-run bomb off Zach Putnam in the eighth inning pulled the O's even at 2-2, but wound up being the extent of their offense on the afternoon. He's having an unbelievable first half, slashing .302/.357/.527 with 17 homers and 46 RBI.
Jul 4 - 5:06 PM

Chris Tillman was hit hard once again in Saturday's loss to the White Sox, allowing two runs on 10 hits in his 4 2/3 innings of work.

Tillman recorded four strikeouts on the afternoon while walking only one. The right-hander continues to have a very disappointing season, registering a 5.57 ERA, 4.60 xFIP and 60/37 K/BB ratio over 84 innings. He'll attempt to turn things around on Friday when he takes on the Nationals.
Jul 4 - 5:05 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter confirmed Saturday that Kevin Gausman will remain in the team's starting rotation.

He'll take his next turn on Tuesday against the Twins in Minnesota. The 24-year-old right-hander owns a 3.09 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 21/8 K/BB ratio in 23 1/3 innings this season. Bud Norris has been shifted to the bullpen in a corresponding move.
Jul 4 - 2:50 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter officially announced Saturday that Bud Norris has been moved to the bullpen.

Kevin Gausman will remain in the Orioles rotation, and will make his next start on Tuesday against the Twins in Minneapolis. Norris has no one but himself to blame for the move, as he has registered a 6.79 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 39/19 K/BB ratio in 55 2/3 innings.
