Machado and the Orioles figure to be in for another close encounter Wednesday night when they face 11-game winner Garrett Richards and the visiting Los Angeles Angels.
While they should be feeling confident with their AL Cy Young candidate on the mound, the Seattle Mariners are hoping a familiar face can provide a boost for their sluggish offense.
When we hear the Baltimore Orioles mentioned in trade rumors, it’s usually about their pursuit of a starting pitcher. But are the pitchers mentioned really an upgrade?
Whatever the Orioles are thinking, they are going to make one and they need an upgrade. Miguel Gonzales has also been up in the air to trade from the Orioles. Although Britton has been doing well, neither him or Ryan Webb may not be the answer for the Oriole, pitching wise. Orioles should probably look into a left handed pitcher. Some names thrown out there: Mike Dunn, from Miami Marlins, and Brad Ziegler, from the Arizona Diamondbacks. Whatever it is, a lefty would be great but the O’s are not going to give up Gausman or Bundy.
Former Oriole and current MLB Network analyst Billy Ripken joined Glenn and Bob on Sports Rehab to talk about who the Orioles should add at the trade deadline and other things going on with the O’s.

When he tells his kids about his first complete game in the majors, Kevin Gausman will have a heck of a story to share — if he skips the part about the game being called by rain after 4 1/2 innings.
As you look at the Orioles roster, you have to question the depth of the starting pitching staff.
Another pitcher for the Orioles, Ubaldo Jimenez does have the talent but finding that strike zone has caused the 30 year old some trouble. Wallace says that he is “a great young guy but he is trying to do a little more than what he is capable of. He needs to relax.”
A top prospect, Addison Russell, a young 20 year old short stop plays for the Chicago Cubs is apparently
one of the best according to Keith Law. Of course, he is a great short stop, has a nice swing, and has a good approach at the plate. The Cubs have some moving around with the amount of infielders that they have.
