Trey Mancini went 2-for-4 with two singles and two strikeouts during Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

His team managed only five base hits in the shutout loss. Mancini just keeps rolling along and shows no signs of slowing down. The rookie has a .323 batting average with 14 home runs and 43 RBI in 63 games.

Wade Miley took a loss after giving up four runs -- three earned -- in five innings against the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

He surrendered solo homers to Jose Bautista and Justin Smoak. The last two runs scored on a bases-loaded, fielder's choice grounder marred by a throwing error. Miley issued four walks, struck out four batters and allowed a total of six hits. He falls to 3-6 with a 4.54 ERA and scary 1.66 WHIP.

Zach Britton (forearm) is expected to make minor league rehab appearances on Thursday and Friday.

Britton will pitch at Double-A Bowie on Thursday, then move on to a scheduled Friday rehab showing at High-A Frederick before making potentially his final rehab appearance with Triple-A Norfolk on Monday. The ace closer is tracking toward a return on July 5.

Ryan Flaherty (shoulder) remains shut down from throwing.

Flaherty felt renewed discomfort in his right shoulder earlier this month when he tried to extend his throwing. He's out indefinitely.
Jun 28 - 10:07 AM

Anthony Santander (forearm) has resumed a throwing program.

The Rule 5 pick has been out all season with a right forearm strain. At this point it's not looking like a great bet that Santander will get much of a shot this season.

Mark Trumbo went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and two RBI on Tuesday, leading the Orioles to a 3-1 victory over the Blue Jays in Toronto.

Trumbo smashed a two-run double off of Joe Biagini in the first inning, providing all of the support that Kevin Gausman and company would need in this one. The hard-hitting outfielder is now slashing .262/.322/.407 with 10 long balls and 37 RBI on the year.

Adam Jones went 1-for-3 with an RBI single on Tuesday as the Orioles beat the Blue Jays.

Jones came through with his run-scoring knock in the third inning, running the O's advantage to 3-0. The veteran outfielder also drew a walk in the contest and is now hitting .271/.309/.440 with 13 homers and 35 RBI on the season.
Jun 27 - 10:15 PM

Brad Brach surrendered a solo homer to Troy Tulowitzki in the ninth inning on Tuesday but managed to escape with his 14th save of the season.

The two-out homer was the only hit that Brach allowed while punching out two on the night. The right-hander has now successfully converted 14 of his first 17 save chances on the season. With Zach Britton nearing a return to the O's bullpen, Brach's usefulness from a fantasy perspective may be coming to an end in the coming weeks.

Kevin Gausman was terrific in Tuesday's victory over the Blue Jays, scattering four hits and two walks over 5 1/3 scoreless innings.

The right-hander punched out four on the night. While he has been nothing but a disaster for most of the season, he seems to own the Blue Jays and continues to pitch well against them each time out. He'll look to further improve upon a horrifying 6.07 ERA and 1.84 WHIP when he does battle against the Rays on Sunday.
Jun 27 - 10:14 PM

Orioles released 1B/DH Jesus Montero.

Montero returned from a 50-game PED suspension to bat only .143/.176/.163 over 13 games for Triple-A Norfolk. The former top prospect is still just 27 and crushed the ball at the Triple-A level last season, so someone will give him a shot.
Jun 27 - 6:07 PM

Zach Britton (forearm) gave up one run on two hits in one inning of work Monday in his latest rehab appearance with Double-A Bowie.

Britton struck out one batter while throwing 12 out of 18 pitches for strikes. "A lot of positives," said Britton. "The worst line I've had, but by far the best stuff. It makes no sense." The southpaw had three scoreless appearances between Low-A Aberdeen and Class A Delmarva before moving up to Double-A on Monday. He's slated to pitch again with Bowie on Thursday before making stops with High-A Frederick and Triple-A Norfolk. The plan calls for him to be activated on July 5.

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.
Jun 25 - 5:17 PM

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.
Jun 25 - 5:15 PM

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.
Jun 25 - 5:09 PM

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.
