Wednesday’s O’s Links: Austin Hays Called Up

Bowie Baysox OF Austin Hays swings.

Quite a game last night, huh? After a two-hour rain delay, the O’s took a 1-0 lead early, only to watch as their third consecutive starter failed to get through even five innings. In this case, Jeremy Hellickson was yanked in the third after completely losing the strike zone. New York was up 6-1, and most of Birdland went to bed early.

Those who didn’t, of course, were rewarded greatly at around 1:05 AM Eastern.

Let’s get the series today. To the links.

Austin Hays Called Up

The Birds shockingly called up Bowie OF Austin Hays yesterday, which could be viewed as quite an indictment on Joey Rickard more than anything else. While Hays would have probably been up soon anyway, Bowie just made the playoffs, and they’d probably liked to have kept him around for a few more days. The Baltimore Sun’s Jon Meoli has more.

Mark Trumbo and the Career Year

If 2016 Mark Trumbo had been bellyaching about pies, we probably would have forgiven him. However, the 2017 version of Trumbo needs to shut his…wait for it…pie hole. Joe Wantz of Camden Depot tries to figure out what happened to the guy who was mashing in Baltimore last year.

The Orioles are Really Bad at Baserunning

Camden Chat’s Tyler Young goes into the gory details of Orioles baserunning statistics. A brave young man he is. Along with the obvious (they’re bad!), he uncovers a not-so-obvious fact (one that had Tyler as surprised as it did me, apparently).

BEV Episode 216: Mas Pies

Jake & Scott discuss PieGate 2.0, the impending return (?) of J.J. Hardy, and plenty more O’s topics in another fun-filled episode of Bird’s Eye View. Listen!

Hunter Harvey Ends Rehab with Strong Start

A double-dip from Meoli today (he’s good). Here, he details Hunter Harvey’s final rehab start – and game action – of 2017. Includes are quotes from the young pitcher himself, who will, hopefully, make an appearance in Baltimore around this time next season.
