Orioles' Bryan Baker: Moves up from Triple-A
The Orioles recalled Baker from Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday.
After being optioned to Triple-A on Aug. 2, Baker posted a 5.40 ERA and 1.46 WHIP over 11.2 innings. Though his performance doesn't necessarily warrant a call-up, Baker has a 3.64 ERA in 45 MLB appearances this year, and he'll be back with the big club and provide a fresh arm out of the bullpen after Nick Vespi was optioned to Norfolk in a corresponding move....

Baker has posted a steady 3.64 ERA and 51:24 K:BB through 42 innings of relief this season with the Orioles and should return to their bullpen mix at some point down the stretch.... See More ...

Orioles' Bryan Baker: Dealt loss Monday
Baker (3-3) allowed two runs on a hit and a walk in one inning, taking the loss Monday versus the Dodgers.
Baker surrendered a grand slam to Chris Taylor after Grayson Rodriguez got into trouble the third time through the order. Prior to Monday, Baker had allowed five runs over his last 13 innings while posting a 15:6 K:BB and two holds in that span. He's at a 3.89 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 47:22 K:BB with 11 holds and two blown saves over 39.1 innings this season. Baker sees some setup work, but he's unlikely to present any challenge to closer Felix Bautista's ninth-inning gig.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Bryan Baker: Takes loss in 10th inning
Baker (3-2) allowed an unearned run and walked one over two-thirds of an inning, taking the extra-inning loss versus the Yankees on Tuesday.
A groundout, an intentional walk and a sacrifice fly combined to produce the winning run for the Yankees in the 10th inning. Baker's two losses this year have come in his last three outings, and he's been scored on in each of those appearances. Despite the recent shaky pitching, he has a 2.78 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 28:14 K:BB through 22.2 innings this season. He's added nine holds and a blown save while working in a setup role.... See More ...

Orioles' Bryan Baker: Handed loss Thursday
Baker (3-1) allowed two runs on a hit and two walks with one strikeout in two-thirds of an inning versus the Angels on Thursday, taking the loss.
Adley Rutschman's two-run home run in the seventh inning put the Orioles ahead, but Baker put two runners on in the eighth. Austin Voth and Danny Coulombe each allowed an inherited runner to score, both charged to Baker. Prior to Thursday, Baker had allowed just one run over his last 20 appearances combined. He's now at a 2.57 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 27:13 K:BB through 21 innings this season. The right-hander's earned high-leverage work with the Orioles down a couple of key arms, but it's unclear if Baker will maintain that role once Mychal Givens (knee) and Dillon Tate (forearm) are back from the injured list....

Orioles' Bryan Baker: Collects third win
Baker (3-0) didn't allow a baserunner and struck out two over 1.1 scoreless innings to earn the win Friday over the Pirates.
Baker entered with two outs in the seventh inning, and Adley Rutschman was able to catch Ji Hwan Bae stealing to end the frame. Baker then submitted a perfect eighth inning. The reliever has quietly emerged as one of the Orioles' most reliable arms, and his 19 appearances are tied for sixth most in the majors through Friday's action. The right-hander has delivered with a 1.89 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 24:11 K:BB while adding eight holds and a blown save.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Bryan Baker: Records second win
Baker (2-0) walked two and struck out two over 1.2 scoreless and hitless innings to earn the win Thursday over the Tigers.
Baker got the last two outs of the sixth inning and also pitched the seventh after the Orioles rallied ahead. Since a three-run meltdown on Opening Day, Baker hasn't been charged with a run in his last 13 innings while adding a 17:5 K:BB in that span. For the season, the righty reliever has a strong 1.98 ERA and 0.73 WHIP with five holds through 14 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Bryan Baker: Clean inning for win
Baker (1-0) struck out one in a perfect inning to earn the win in Tuesday's 12-8 victory over the Athletics.
Baker kept the game tied at 7-7 with his fourth straight clean outing, and the Orioles' offense rallied for four runs in the bottom of the seventh inning. This was Baker's first win to go with two holds through six appearances this season. Aside from a three-run blow-up on Opening Day versus the Red Sox, he's been pretty solid, though that outing has him at a 4.26 ERA with a 0.63 WHIP over 6.1 innings. He's added an 8:1 K:BB and should remain in the high-leverage mix as part of the bridge to closer Felix Bautista.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Bryan Baker: Remains lock to make team
Baker is a virtual lock to break camp with the Orioles, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Baker was viewed as an option to close earlier in spring training, but with Felix Bautista on track to avoid the injured list, that is now unlikely. The 28-year-old Baker hasn't exactly done himself any favors, allowing eight earned runs on 10 hits and four walks over 4.2 innings through five Grapefruit League appearances. He was an effective middle reliever in 2022 with a 3.49 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 76:26 K:BB over 69.2 innings, though he could see more setup work this year with Dillon Tate (elbow) out for the first month of the campaign....

Orioles' Bryan Baker: Could be option to close
Baker and Cionel Perez could get chances to close games if Felix Bautista (shoulder/knee) needs to miss time, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
The O's hope that Bautista will ready in time for Opening Day as he eases into things this spring following last year's shoulder and knee injuries. If he's not, though, it sounds like Baker and Perez would get ninth-inning looks. Baker picked up one save for Baltimore in 2022 while posting a 3.49 ERA and 76:26 K:BB over 69.2 frames....

Orioles' Bryan Baker: Notches first career save
Baker struck out two without allowing a baserunner to earn the save in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays.
Baker was called upon to protect a one-run lead and he had little trouble doing so to record the first save of his career. He concluded the 2022 season with 11 straight scoreless appearances, during which he maintained a 13:3 K:BB across 12.1 frames. It was Baker's first full season in the majors, and he was a solid contributor out of Baltimore's bullpen by posting a 3.49 ERA while also tallying nine holds.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Bryan Baker: Works around two hits
Baker struck out one in a scoreless inning during Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Blue Jays.
Baker erased a Vladimir Guerrero single when Bo Bichette grounded into a double play. Matt Chapman then singled before Baker struck out Teoscar Hernandez to end the seventh inning. Baker's allowed three hits and a walk over 3.2 innings without allowing a run in his last four appearances. The right-hander now owns a 3.98 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 67:24 K:BB through 61 innings while adding a 4-3 record, eight holds and two blown saves. He'll likely finish 2022 in a mid-leverage role....

Orioles' Bryan Baker: Snags win Monday
Baker (4-3) earned the win Monday, striking out two over 1.1 scoreless innings.
Starter Kyle Bradish fell an out short of qualifying for the win, allowing Baker to pick up his first decision since July 4. Since the start of July, he's posted a solid 2.81 ERA with a 1.31 WHIP and 24:8 K:BB across 16 innings. He's kept opponents off the board in 15 of 18 appearances in that span. For the season, Baker owns a 4.10 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 53:20 K:BB with five holds and two blown saves in 48.1 innings. With Felix Bautista holding the closer role and Dillon Tate and Cionel Perez operating as setup men, Baker's middle-relief role hasn't changed much since Jorge Lopez was sent to the Twins at the trade deadline....

Orioles' Bryan Baker: Extends scoreless streak
Baker allowed two hits in a scoreless inning during Monday's 5-1 win over the Rays.
Baker is enjoying his best month of the season -- he owns a 0.90 ERA and 1.30 WHIP through 10 innings in July, and he hasn't allowed a run in his last six appearances. The right-hander has racked up a 17:3 K:BB in that span. With the strength of the Orioles' bullpen, he hasn't been able to earn a larger role with this stretch of success. For the year, he has a 3-3 record, four holds and a blown save while recording a 3.83 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 46:15 K:BB in 42.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Bryan Baker: Snags win Monday
Baker (3-3) walked one and struck out two in a scoreless inning to earn the extra-inning win over the Rangers on Monday.
Baker issued a one-out walk but ultimately had no trouble keeping the score tied at 6-6 in the top of the 10th inning. He ended up with the win when the Orioles walked it off in the bottom of the frame. This was a fourth straight scoreless outing for Baker, his longest streak of the year, and he's covered six innings in that span. The 27-year-old right-hander has a 4.59 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 31:13 K:BB through 33.1 innings overall while adding three holds and a blown save.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Bryan Baker: Grabs second hold
Baker struck out one in 1.1 perfect innings to earn a hold in Friday's 4-1 win over the White Sox.
Baker has yet to post more than three consecutive scoreless outings this season. The mixed results have continued in June, where he's posted a 4.50 ERA and 1.25 WHIP across eight innings. For the season, the right-hander has a 5.34 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, 27:11 K:BB, 2-3 record, two holds and a blown save threw 28.2 innings. He'll likely remain in mostly low-leverage assignments, especially since few other Orioles relievers have struggled in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Bryan Baker: Snares win Tuesday
Baker (2-3) allowed a run on a hit and a walk in 1.1 innings, earning the win Tuesday over the Cubs.
Starter Kyle Bradish came up one out short of qualifying for the win in an inefficient outing, allowing Baker to snare a win in relief. The 27-year-old right-hander has been a bit shaky with 10 runs allowed (eight earned) in his last 11 innings. For the season, Baker has a 5.40 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 23:8 K:BB through 23.1 innings while adding a blown save and a hold. With lackluster ratios and very little high-leverage usage, he's not much of a factor in standard fantasy formats.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Bryan Baker: Takes loss Tuesday
Baker (1-3) was charged with the loss Tuesday after he pitched 1.1 innings, surrendering three runs on two hits and a walk while striking out a batter against the Mariners.
Baker was tasked with starting Tuesday's contest in what was a bullpen game. He gave up an RBI double in the first inning and two more runs in the second while only recording one out. The three runs surrendered were a season high for the reliever and he has now allowed at least one run in four of his last five appearances. Since May 20, Baker has given up six runs on 10 hits and three walks over 6.2 frames. He'll return to his regular role as a bullpen option following the loss Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
