Orioles Power Rankings Roundup: Week 3
Below is a graph of where the Orioles have ranked over the course of the season.
And here is what Power Rankers are saying about the Orioles this week:
Orioles ranked 3rd - "Zach Britton was placed on the disabled list Sunday with forearm soreness, so the question is whether the O's back end of the bullpen will succeed in his absence. Britton has been the best reliever in baseball since 2014 (minimum 200 IP) and has converted 54 consecutive save opportunities, tied for the second-longest streak in MLB history (saves became official in 1969). -- Sarah Langs, ESPN Stats & Information"
Orioles ranked 4th - "Trey Mancini (4), Chris Davis (3) out-homering Red Sox (5) by themselves."
Orioles ranked 8th - "Responded on Sunday after allowing Jays a streak-busting walk-off home run party a day earlier."
Orioles ranked 6th - The Bleacher report rankings commented on four teams this week. Your team was not one of the five mentioned. The write up includes other information, like MVPs of the Week, that make the write up worth the read for fans of any team.
Orioles ranked 6th - "One Nice Thing: Through the first 12 games of Trey Mancini's career (which started last season), he has seven home runs and 14 RBIs — tying an MLB record.
One Not-So-Nice Thing: Manny Machado's season has started poorly at the plate — he's slashing .175/.298/.375."
