Hot-hitting Jimmy Paredes starts at second base for Orioles
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/22/15) Without the luxury of the designated hitter position while in a National League park, Orioles manager Buck Showalter is keeping the hot bat of Jimmy Paredes in the lineup on Friday against the Marlins. Paredes will play second base in favor of Steve Pearce, who is on the bench.
Paredes has been a tough out this season, reaching base via a hit or a walk in all but two of the 27 games he's played.

|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/21/15) Orioles infielder Steve Pearce hit a grand slam in the bottom of the first inning of Thursday afternoon's 5-4 win over the Mariners.
Pearce took the first pitch he saw from J.A. Happ deep to left center field at Camden Yards. The grand slam scored Jimmy Paredes, Delmon Young and Chris Davis.
Pearce has struggled from the plate this year as even with the grand slam he's batting just .198/.275/.341.
Pearce finished the game 1 for 3 and also drew a walk.
Orioles' Steve Pearce hits third home run of the season Saturday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/16/15) Steve Pearce provided all of the offense for the Orioles on Saturday as they fell to the Angels 6-1. Pearce gave the O's an early 1-0 lead when he launched his third home run of the season in the bottom of the fourth inning.
This was Pearce's first home run since the first two games of the season. He also hit his fifth double on Saturday, as the two-hit effort brought his season average up to .195.
"Starting to feel more comfortable at the plate," Pearce said, per MASNSports.com. "That is what it comes down to. We have another tough pitcher tomorrow so, new game and we have to shake this off and get them tomorrow."
Orioles infielder Ryan Flaherty out of the lineup on Tuesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/12/15) Orioles infielder Ryan Flaherty is out of the starting lineup on Tuesday against the Blue Jays with a groin injury, according to CSN Balitmore.
Flaherty came out of Monday's game after reinjuring his groin, which landed him on the 15-day DL earlier this season. Steve Pearce will draw the start at second base and hit sixth with Travis Snider taking over in left field. Pearce is hitting .183 in 71 at-bats this season.
The Orioles are currently the favorites (-120) against Toronto.
Orioles 2B Ryan Flaherty leaves Monday's game in third inning
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/11/15) Orioles second baseman Ryan Flaherty apparently reaggravated a groin injury and left Monday's game during the third inning against the Blue Jays, the team has announced.|
Steve Pearce moved from left field to second while David Lough came into the game in Flaherty's spot to play left.
Flaherty (groin) returned from the disabled list and started Friday but was out of Saturday's lineup with groin pain.
He did start Sunday at second.
|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.
