Manny Machado said he has full range of motion in his right knee.
That's certainly encouraging, but considering the issues he's now had with each leg, we'd like to see him test it out in some winter ball just to be sure. The Orioles may not want to take that much of a risk, but until he shows some durability, he's never going to be a strong option at third. Analyst: Howard Bender View Profile
Jonathan Schoop went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Orioles victory over the Blue Jays on Sunday.
Schoop finishes the season with a .209 batting average and 16 home runs. Even for someone who rarely walks and strikes out 25.4 percent of the time his average seems at least a bit unlucky. He could be in for a better 2015 if his batting average does not hold him back. Analyst: Steve Pimental View Profile
Zach Britton gave up a hit and recorded a strikeout while earning his 37th save of the year for the Orioles on Sunday.
Britton has been one of the best closers in baseball this season, and he did not even record his first save until May 15. Britton will be 27 years old going into next season, and should be a top-five fantasy closer again in 2015. Analyst: Steve Pimental View Profile
Miguel Gonzalez moved to 10-9 after not allowing a run on five hits and no walks with two strikeouts over five innings in the Orioles victory against the Blue Jays on Sunday.
Miguel Gonzalez's underlying numbers never look good, but at the end of the day his ERA is under 3.50 in 435.2 career innings. He will probably be a good late-round value again next season. Analyst: Steve Pimental View Profile
Orioles have designated pitcher Preston Guilmet for assignment.
He made a total of 10 appearances for the Orioles this year, rolling up an unimpressive 5.23 ERA over 10.1 innings, although he did manage to accumulate 12 Ks over that limited action. Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson View Profile
Orioles have added Alexi Casilla to the 40-man roster.
Casilla gives the Orioles some added depth at third base and is a better defensive player than Jimmy Paredes, Kelly Johnson and Ryan Flaherty, all of whom have made errors at third this week. Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson View Profile
Chris Tillman allowed four earned runs on 11 hits while walking none and striking out five over six innings in the Orioles 4-2 loss over the Blue Jays on Friday.
Not really the tune-up start for the playoffs the Orioles were hoping for as Tillman was hit hard for six innings here. The good news was that his command was fairly solid as he didn't walk anyone, but there didn't seem to be much life on them as the Blue Jays battered him around with double-digit hits. He's had a fantastic season for himself, finishing with a 3.34 ERA and should fare well in the Orioles quest for a championship. Analyst: Howard Bender View Profile
