- In a sense, that Orioles starter Kyle Bradish only allowed four runs in his 4 1/3 innings during Monday’s 6-2 loss — Baltimore's fourth straight — was commendable. He worked through traffic throughout, with a 30-pitch first inning setting the stage for a laborious outing against the New York Yankees.
- It’s a small sample size — 14 home games — but the Orioles’ official attendance is higher in 2022 than it was in the season before the pandemic.
- Since his call-up in late April, Tyler Nevin has played third base five times, first base three times, left field twice and right field once. It's why he's carving out a role with the Orioles.
- Eleven of the Orioles' 16 punchouts came against Tigers left-hander Tarik Skubal, who pitched six scoreless innings to outduel starter Tyler Wells in a 5-1 Baltimore loss. It marks the third time the Orioles have been swept this season.
- It’s the life of a fringe Major League Baseball player, carving out chances for playing time when those chances can be few and far between. That’s where outfielder Ryan McKenna finds himself with the Orioles.
- Bruce Zimmermann allowed just two earned runs in his six-plus innings, but the Orioles were held without a hit until the fifth inning and bounced into four double plays in a 3-0 loss to the Tigers.
- For the first time in his major league career, Jorge Mateo is an everyday shortstop for the Orioles. He's making the most of the opportunity.
- Baltimore stranded 14 base runners and hit 1-for-12 with runners in scoring position in a 4-2 loss to the Tigers on Friday night, including leaving the bases loaded in the ninth inning.
- Ryan Mountcastle landed on the Orioles' 10-day injured list with a left forearm strain and Austin Hays was out of the lineup after requiring stitches on his hand.
- DL Hall's high-velocity fastball catches attention, but his off-speed pitches can help him reach the Orioles' starting rotation.
