Baltimore Orioles Batting Lineup Summary: Baltimore has an awesome batting lineup. Everyone hit 10 home runs except catcher Matt Wieters who was injured and missed part of the season in 2014. Most of the same batters are back, but it really comes down to Wieters staying healthy. Machado played all 162 games and if the Orioles can get 100 games from Weiters in 2016, then this team could do some damage in the AL East.

Baltimore Orioles Starting Rotation Summary: All 5 pitchers in this starting rotation have at least 100 innings pitched. The downside is this starting rotation gives up way too many runs. It's hard to see the Orioles in the playoffs with this rotation.

Baltimore Orioles Bullpen Summary: Baltimore's bullpen was still effective last year even though the Orioles struggled in 2015. Their bullpen is much stronger and much deeper this year.


Prediction: Baltimore has the bats and bullpen to surprise people. A lack of arms in the starting rotation will be what keeps the Orioles from making any noise in 2016.
