Orioles 1B Steve Pearce: 'I've been like a one-man rally killer'
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/25/15) Orioles first baseman Steve Pearce is not complaining about his recent time on the bench. In fact, he understands why Buck Showalter has been opting to play others over him.
Pearce owns a .167 batting average with two homers, four RBI and .292 slugging percentage. That translates into a lot of blown opportunities on a team that has been battering pitchers much of the year.
"I've been like a one-man rally killer this past week," he told masnsports.com. "It's been frustrating and I think Buck (Showalter) sees I'm frustrated. I'm not swinging like I'm capable. But it comes around, it always does. Just want to get back to how I know I can play."
How he knows he can play was how he played in a breakout 2014 in which he batted .293 with 21 taters and recorded an OPS of .930.
Pearce has just three at-bats since April 21.
Orioles' Steve Pearce on the bench again for Red Sox game
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/24/15) Orioles first baseman Steve Pearce is beginning Friday's game against the Red Sox on the bench again.
Pearce has not started in five of the past six games. In this span, Pearce's lone start came in a 13-6 loss to the Blue Jays. He's enduring a 2-for-24 slump as well, with both of those hits coming against Red Sox on April 18.
Pearce's slash line is .149/.231/.277. He's come off the bench in Baltimore's past two games.
Orioles' Steve Pearce, Ryan Flaherty back in the lineup Tuesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) Orioles' Steve Pearce and catcher Ryan Flaherty are back in the starting lineup Tuesday after getting the day off Monday, per MASN Sports.
Pearce will bat second and play first base after not playing since Saturday. He is hitting .250 in eight career at-bats against Mark Buehrle with two doubles and a strike out. Flaherty is hitting .333 with two home runs and three RBI in 24 at-bats this season.
The Orioles are currently the underdogs (+125) against Toronto.
Steve Pearce held out of Orioles lineup for a second straight game
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) Struggling Orioles slugger Steve Pearce was held out of the starting lineup for a second straight game Monday against the Red Sox. It was also the third time in five games he wasn't in the starting lineup.
Pearce is batting .175 (7 for 40) with two home runs, three RBI and 11 strikeouts through 10 games.
|2014 summary: As a journeyman who never amassed as many as 200 plate appearances in any of his seven previous major league seasons, Steve Pearce finally found steady work in a surprisingly productive 2014 season. Pearce's own strong hitting, along with mounting injuries in the Orioles' lineup, provided an opportunity for playing time, and he seized it. Pearce hit .293 with 21 home runs, 49 RBI and 51 runs in 338 at-bats, and he finished strong, even though he missed time over the final month with abdominal and wrist injuries.
Playing time status: Pearce has likely played his way into a regular role, but he could face competition for first base or an outfield spot, depending on how the rest of the roster pans out. He also has a history of being injury-prone, so even with a clear path to a starting role, owners shouldn't count on Pearce to play 155 games or more.
2015 outlook: Though playing time could be in question for Pearce, his power potential makes him worth targeting in standard mixed leagues. Unless there are signs that he will be relegated to a part-time role, which seem very unlikely now, Pearce is worthy of the investment of a pick in the middle rounds.
