Happy Staturday Birdland! It was another up and down week for the Orioles but fear not, there will be stats!

On Thursday, Trey Mancini launched his 19th and 20th home runs into Oblivion, setting an impressive benchmark for the club:

Trey Mancini joins Adam Jones, Jonathan Schoop, and Manny Machado as the four Orioles with 20+ home runs. At four, the Orioles have the most players with 20+ long balls.

Adam Jones continues to mash the long ball, something he’s done for awhile as an Oriole:

Since 2008, Adam Jones leads all center fielders in extra-base hits (526), home runs (242), and RBIs (781).

When the batting order was announced for Friday’s game, there was one noticeable and unfortunate shake-up:

Chris Davis batted 7th on Friday, marking the lowest he’s batted since August of 2014.

For my final stat of the week, we’ll use a new stat: wRC+.  Learn what exactly wRC+ is before checking out the cool Trey stat below:

Aaron Judge – 171
