Since the Baltimore Orioles were established in Baltimore in 1954, the team has had some great pitchers. From World Series winners, to 100-game winners, to one Hall of Famer, many of the Baltimore Orioles are household names in the city.
The top-five of this list all had over 1,000 strikeouts and 2,000 innings pitched in their career, and the top-six on this list all had over 100 career wins.
And in case you were wondering, no, there aren’t any active MLB players on this list. However one guy that just missed the list might surprise you. At number 12 all-time in Orioles history in strikeouts is none other than Chris Tillman with 824 strikeouts over 1,093.1 innings pitched (so far).
You’ll likely know many of these names (and you’ll probably guess number one on the list without a problem). So without further ado, here are the Baltimore Orioles’ top-ten career strikeout leaders.
