The Baltimore Orioles are one of the best teams in baseball when you look at their record, but their recent play doesn’t reflect that.
The Baltimore Orioles‘ starting pitching can’t go deep enough in games, and can’t protect significant leads.
The offense has been sporadic but appears to be flexing its muscle.
But, the bullpen is a dumpster fire, and it needs to be dealt with.
So, how do you deal with the Orioles’ bullpen? It isn’t as easy as you might think, and it isn’t as hard either.
First, you can’t just Band-Aid it up until Zach Britton comes back. That could be at least another month.
But, these players need to get into roles that have performed capably in before.
Brad Brach has been an All-Star setup man. Donnie Hart had an ERA below one in 2016. Mychal Givens was excellent as well. Hart and Givens don’t have long track records, but they were doing well early in 2017 too.
So, I introduce the ways to fix the Orioles’ bullpen.
Nothing here is going to be anything that is shocking or from left field. However, the Orioles have been maneuvering around with their roster, and their bullpen. To the effect where it may be hurting the team more than it is helping them.
