Designated hitters( Algerina Perna, Baltimore Sun / June 30, 2013 )
The Orioles never know what they're going to get from their designated hitters, unless Buck Showalter inserts somebody like Chris Davis into the role for a game. Davis' single appearance as DH accounted for most of the production last week, but Brian Roberts showed up in that slot Sunday night and could give the club some more flexibility there when he isn't at second base. One thing is certain, but Orioles need more than one or two RBIs per week from the only pure offensive position.
