Caleb Joseph was taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons after he was hit in the groin area by a foul ball during Monday's game against the Red Sox.

Joseph was in a lot of pain after being hit in a very sensitive area, but he actually completed the game behind the plate. More should be known about his status on Tuesday.

Tyler Wilson yielded three runs in 6 2/3 innings in a loss to the Red Sox on Monday.

Wilson gave up eight hits in all and walked a pair while striking out four batters. It was a solid outing, but a solo homer from Jackie Bradley, Jr. in the sixth inning did him in. With a 3.83 ERA over seven starts and three relief appearances, Wilson has done a respectable job for the Orioles this season, but it’s hard to be optimistic about him with his inability to miss bats. He has just 26 strikeouts in 49 1/3 innings.
May 30 - 4:50 PM

Orioles RHP prospect Matthew Grimes spanned eight shutout innings Sunday in a win for High-A Frederick.

The eight-inning gem was the longest start of his career. Grimes hasn't allowed a run in his last two starts and now leads the Carolina League with seven wins this year. He also owns the league's second-lowest ERA (1.21) and fifth-lowest WHIP (1.06). The 24-year-old has allowed just one earned run during his four-game winning streak. Despite his success, Grimes has only struck out 37 hitters in 59 2/3 innings this year.

T.J. McFarland (knee) has been activated from the disabled list at Triple-A Norfolk.

McFarland could quickly move to the major league level now that his left knee is healed. The right-hander had a 4.73 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in 13 1/3 innings of relief earlier this season for the Orioles.

Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) is expected to make at least two minor league rehab starts.

His first rehab start is scheduled for Thursday at High-A Frederick, and he'll probably go four innings in that one. Gallardo has been on the disabled list since April 23 with right shoulder and biceps tendinitis. He threw a successful simulated game Saturday and made it through another bullpen session Monday without issue. The right-hander had a 7.00 ERA through his first 18 innings (four starts) this season with the O's.

Mark Trumbo went 1-for-4 with a three-run double in Sunday's win over the Indians.

Trumbo jumped the Orioles to an early 3-0 lead when he stepped up with the bases loaded and cleared them with a double off Mike Clevinger in the first inning. It would be his only hit on the afternoon. The 30-year-old outfielder boasts a dazzling .293/.341/.581 triple-slash with 15 homers and 37 RBI. He has picked up five RBI over his last three games.

Chris Tillman struggled to keep the ball in the park during Sunday's win over the Indians, allowing three home runs and four total runs over six innings.

Carlos Santana and Mike Napoli burned Tillman for a pair of home runs in the fourth inning. Napoli's was of the two-run variety. Jason Kipnis would hit a solo shot off the right-hander in the sixth to polish off the scoring on his line. Tillman has now allowed five home runs over his last three starts after surrendering just one dinger through his first seven outings. Despite his recent homer-happy ways, Tillman owns a smooth 2.92 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 61/27 K/BB ratio over 64 2/3 innings. He will hit the road for a date with the Yankees next time he toes the rubber.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Sunday that Ubaldo Jimenez is the "projected" starter for the club on Thursday.

While Jimenez is currently penciled in to start, it sounds like it's not a guarantee that he'll take the ball that day. It's not a surprise that it appears the O's are considering a change, as the righty lasted just 1 2/3 innings Saturday and now holds a 6.36 ERA.

J.J. Hardy had the boot on his left foot removed and he will undergo a CT scan on Friday.

A recent X-ray showed significant healing with Hardy's foot, but he still has some lingering soreness. Depending on what the CT scan shows, it sounds like Hardy could resume baseball activities soon. He's been out since May 2 with a left foot fracture.
May 29 - 12:26 PM

Pedro Alvarez is not in the Orioles' lineup Sunday.

Alvarez has been benched in three of the last four games, and all three times the opponent has had a righty on the mound. The O's are going with Mark Trumbo as their designated hitter and Hyun-soo Kim and Nolan Reimold in left and right field, respectively.
May 29 - 11:02 AM

Hyun-soo Kim made his fourth straight start in left field Saturday.

Rule 5 pick Joey Rickard has struggled of late, which has finally led to Kim getting an extended look. The 28-year-old has been terrific when given a chance this season, batting .386/.460/.455 across 50 plate appearances. He should continue to see regular at-bats if he keeps producing. "I just think he kind of brings some things we kind of need, some selectivity and kind of slow things down here and there," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "First of all, the guy’s going to have to get below .400 before you take him out. I’m not stupid. I don’t care how many at-bats or what kind of hits they are. At some point you go, ‘OK, let’s see.’ Like I told you, nobody really knows who he is or how good he can be."
May 29 - 9:29 AM

Ubaldo Jimenez gave up six runs for the third straight start -- although just three were earned -- in a loss to the Indians on Saturday.

A fielding error in the first inning made three of the Indians' four runs unearned, but it's not as though Jimenez was much better. The right-hander lasted just 1 2/3 innings, allowing five hits and walking three before exiting. He's now 2-6 with a 6.36 ERA for a team with aspirations of winning the AL East. It's hard to imagine they'll continue running him out there much longer when he's pitching like this, but his next scheduled start, until further notice, is set for Thursday against the Red Sox.
May 28 - 8:18 PM

Zach Britton worked a perfect ninth inning against the Indians on Friday, protecting a two-run advantage to earn his 13th save of the season.

Britton continues to be one of the most dominant late-inning arms in all of baseball. He has successfully converted each of his first 13 save chances while posting a minuscule 1.35 ERA and jaw-dropping 0.55 WHIP to go along with a 24/4 K/BB ratio.
May 27 - 11:25 PM

Mark Trumbo blasted his 15th home run of the season on Friday as the Orioles defeated the Indians 6-4 in the first game of their weekend series in Cleveland.

Trumbo's two-run shot in the seventh inning provided valuable insurance runs for the O's and would prove to be the difference in the ballgame. Trumbo also singled, finishing the night 2-for-4. He has been an absolute force in the middle of the Orioles lineup this season, slashing .284/.335/.568 with 15 homers and 34 RBI.
May 27 - 11:21 PM

Mike Wright struggled in a no-decision against the Indians on Friday, allowing three runs on six hits and a pair of walks over 4 2/3 innings.

Wright struck out four on the evening. The O's offense staked him to an early 3-0 lead, but he let the Indians chip away with single runs in the second, fourth and fifth innings to even things up. He'll look to improve upon a disappointing 5.05 ERA and 1.40 WHIP when he does battle against the hot-hitting Red Sox on Wednesday.
