Baltimore Orioles Starting Lineup 2018 Orioles Lineup

28-72, 6th in AL East

Confirmed Conf

BAL 4 @ TOR 5

Final

Updated:

Baltimore used to have one of the better lineups in baseball, but that has quickly been on a decline. Manny Machado is still in Baltimore in the meantime, but trade rumors will continue to develop with him being a free agent. Machado moved to shortstop in the offseason, which put Tim Beckham at third base. Beckham has been injured most of the season, leaving Jace Peterson and Pedro Alvarez at the hot corner. Neither have had much success, and neither are future players for the organization. Jonathan Schoop missed most of the first half of the season, but is back in the lineup.

Notes

He is a strong bat at second base, but hasn’t bounced back from the DL just yet. Adam Jones is another Baltimore name who could be on the move, but Jones overall has fallen off which has led to a weaker Baltimore lineup. Mark Trumbo had a massive year last season, but injuries have plagued him in 2018. Trey Mancini has been someone to leadoff most of the year, but is a better play against left-handed pitching. Chris Davis has never been a big average guy, but the power has usually made up for it. Davis has yet to do that this year, and has been a big contract disaster. Baltimore brought in some bats like Colby Rasmus and Danny Valencia, who platoon in that third outfield spot. Valencia has been excellent against left-handers in his career, while Rasmus is a power bat from the left side. Chance Sisco and Caleb Joseph platoon behind the dish, as Welington Castillo left last season. Both are poor fantasy options, as are most of these Baltimore bats. It is only a matter of time before Machado and Jones leave, and this lineup could be even worse than it is now.
