Notes on Brian Roberts‘ neck injury, Derrek Lee’s BP session, the game day pitching schedule, a look at which pitchers the Pirates will throw at the Orioles and more.
Once considered part of the Orioles’ future rotation, injuries have delayed Troy Patton‘s permanent return to the majors and he’s likely just a bullpen piece at this point. He did make it to Baltimore last year but made it into only one game, pitching just 2/3 of an inning.
Mychal Givens went 1 for 4 with a home run and a walk in a 7-6 Aberdeen loss.
Manny Machado went 1 for 3 with a walk in a 1-0 Aberdeen loss.
Oliver Drake is one of eight (nine?) players representing the Orioles in this year’s AFL.
Mychal Givens went 2 for 3 with 3 runs, a double and a home run in a 7-2 IronBirds win.
Brandon Snyder went 1 for 4 with a run, a home run and an RBI in a 5-4 Tides win.
Troy Patton pitched 6.1 innings, allowing 4 H and 1 ER with 7 strikeouts in a 1-0 Tides loss.
Oliver Drake pitched 6.2 innings, allowing 2 H and 1 ER with 3 K’s in a 6-4 Keys win.
