Adam Jones went 3-for-4 in a loss to the Red Sox on Sunday.

All three hits were singles for Jones. It's been a very disappointing season for the long-time Baltimore outfielder, and he's still hitting just .267/.284/.439 on his 2018 campaign with seven homers and an ugly 38/4 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

David Hess gave up five runs in 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Red Sox on Sunday.

Hess couldn’t keep the ball in the park in this one, as he gave up three homers against the Boston lineup; two of them by J.D. Martinez. The 24-year-old also allowed eight hits, and has allowed 14 knocks in just 10 ⅔ innings at the MLB level. Baltimore has no assigned starter for Friday’s game against the Rays, so Hess could get another crack at success against Tampa Bay. Whether or not he should is a different question.

Orioles recalled RHP David Hess from Triple-A Norfolk.

Hess will start Sunday against the Red Sox. He pitched well against the Rays in his major league debut earlier this month but should be avoided versus Boston.
May 20 - 10:53 AM

Orioles optioned LHP Donnie Hart to Triple-A Norfolk.

Hart holds a 1.93 ERA in four relief appearances over a couple stints with the O's. He'll be back eventually.

Pedro Alvarez crushed a two-run home run as his team fell to the Red Sox on Saturday.

He took Rick Porcello yard in the sixth inning with Mark Trumbo on base. It was Alvarez's only hit in three at-bats, although he drew a walk as well. He doesn't get many hits but they tend to be impactful when he gets one. He has a .198 batting average and .500 slugging percentage with eight homers and 16 RBI in 99 plate appearances as a part-time player.

David Hess will start Sunday's game against the Red Sox, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Saturday.

Hess made his MLB debut last Saturday, earning a win against the Rays by allowing three runs over six innings. He was sent out shortly after, since the O's didn't need another starter at the time, but he'll be back to take another, tougher turn against the mighty Red Sox. If Hess shows well again Sunday, he'll likely get some ride in the dumpster fire that is the Orioles rotation.
May 19 - 10:36 PM

Dylan Bundy allowed four runs in six innings and was charged with a loss to the Red Sox on Saturday.

He struck out eight batters but served up three home runs to earn his sixth loss of the season. Rafael Devers and Andrew Benintendi touched him up for solo bombs and Mookie Betts got him for a two-run shot. Bundy has now allowed 13 home runs on the season, only Josh Tomlin (15) of the Indians has allowed more. Bundy has a nice 63:19 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 53 2/3 innings but the homers have led to a 2-6 record and 4.70 ERA through 10 starts.

Tim Beckham (groin) threw from 90 feet and did some running Saturday.

Beckham is recovering from a strained left groin and subsequent core surgery in late April. He isn't expected back until late next month at the earliest.
May 19 - 6:07 PM

Chris Tillman (back) will throw on flat ground Monday.

Tillman was placed on the disabled list with a lower back strain on May 11, so it's a positive step that he's ready to throw. That said, Monday will be the 10-day mark since he hit the DL, and flat ground is a few steps removed from activation. He remains without a timetable to return.

Jonathan Schoop clobbered his fourth home run as the Orioles defeated the Red Sox 7-4 on Friday night in Boston.

Schoop launched his solo homer off of Steven Wright in the seventh inning, increasing the Orioles' lead to 6-3. He also drew a pair of walks in the ballgame, finishing the night 1-for-3 with a pair of runs scored. He has picked up the pace offensively since returning from the disabled list and is now slashing .243/.284/.417 with four homers and 13 RBI.
May 18 - 11:27 PM

Manny Machado went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles and two RBI on Friday as the Orioles dispatched of the Red Sox.

Machado delivered a two-run single as part of a four-run uprising in the fourth inning. He's completely locked in at the plate at the moment, slashing .347/.423/.671 with 14 homers, 42 RBI and a pair of stolen bases.
May 18 - 11:22 PM

Brad Brach slammed the door on the Red Sox on Friday, getting the final four outs to protect a four-run lead and earn his sixth save of the season.

Brach allowed just one hit, a two-out double to J.D. Martinez in the ninth inning, but nothing came of it. He has now converted six of his first seven save chances on the season while posting a 4.00 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 21/9 K/BB ratio across 18 innings.
May 18 - 11:19 PM

Alex Cobb earned his first win as a member of the Orioles on Friday, limiting the Red Sox to three runs on 10 hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Cobb fanned three and walked one in the ballgame. Mookie Betts was responnsible for most of the damage against him, with a solo homer in the third inning and an RBI double in the fifth. He still owns a disastrous 6.56 ERA and 1.85 WHIP on the season and remains a hard to trust fantasy option for Wednesday's start against the White Sox in Chicago.
May 18 - 11:16 PM

Zach Britton (Achilles) will throw a simulated game Tuesday.

Britton threw live batting practice again Friday and went through fielding drills. His rehab from Achilles surgery is coming along nicely, but he's obviously got a ways to go. Britton should be activated in early- to mid-June and figures to be eased back into closing duties.
May 18 - 5:54 PM

Orioles released OF Alex Presley.

Presley triggered the opt-out clause in his minor league contract and the Orioles decided against adding him to the 40-man roster, so he's now free to look for a gig elsewhere. The 32-year-old is a career .263/.306/.388 hitter over parts of eight major league seasons.
