Luck a factor for Orioles hitters?

Jonathan Schoop is defying OPS predictions, and Chris Davis has regressed as expected. Meanwhile, Mark Trumbo is hitting the ball better than ever. Are these performances for real or is luck -- good or bad -- a factor? FiveThirtyEight has the answer. Hitting hard, or into hard luck?

Trumbo settling in nicely with O's

Mark Trumbo hit his 15th homer of the season on Friday, tying him for the major league lead. Last year, the 30-year-old hit his 15th HR on Aug, 19, ESPN Stats & Info points out.

Orioles swing and sometimes they miss

Or, in the case of this week's series against the Astros, a lot of times they miss. Baltimore batters fanned 52 times -- a major league record for a three-game series. The O's also lost all three games, scoring just seven runs. Five things we learned Thursday

Jayson Stark ESPN Senior Writer 

It's been a breezy 3 days in Houston for the Orioles. They whiffed 52 times! The word from the Elias Sports Bureau: That's the most ever in a 3-game series. The record they broke was a month old - 47, by the Nationals against the Twins.

What happened to Brian Matusz?

Matusz put together a solid 2015 campaign, but '16 has been a completely different year for the left-hander leading up to his trade to Atlanta. What are some of the numbers behind the former No. 4 overall pick's decline? Camden Depot

Rotation still a concern for the O's?

Baltimore has surprised many with the success of its starting pitching this season, but the team's lack of depth at Triple-A could pose a problem down the road. Baltimore Sun

Roberts, Surhoff to rep Orioles at draft

Former Orioles 2B Brian Roberts and LF B.J. Surhoff will represent the team at this year's MLB draft. Roberts spent 13 of his 14 years in the majors with Baltimore and was twice an All-Star, while Surhoff had two separate stints with the O's from 1996-2000 and '03-05.

Tweak to delivery keys Tillman's success

Chris Tillman made a minor adjustment to his leg lift during his delivery entering this season, and it is paying off in a major way (2.61 ERA). "We're talking about, you know, so small," Tillman said of the tweak. "I feel like I'm more consistent right now, and I can throw my off-speed for strikes." Baltimore Sun
