|Steve Pearce sitting in nation's capital |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/8/14) The lack of a designated hitter in a Tuesday night game at Washington has hot-hitting Steve Pearce sidelined for the second straight night for the Orioles.
Pearce, who pinch-hit Monday, had 12 hits in his previous seven games and has been one of the surprises of the season. He boasts a stat line of .324/.379/.578.

(7/3/14) Orioles outfielder Steve Pearce stayed hot Thursday, going 4 for 5 with two doubles, two RBI and two stolen bases in his team's 5-2 victory over the Rangers.
Pearce has been a monster out of the two-hole since moving to that spot in the lineup permanently in mid-June, posting a .352/.446/.796 line with six home runs and 15 RBI in 54 at-bats before Thursday's four-hit performance, which was the first of his career. He has hit .338/.397/.618 with 10 home runs, 29 RBI and four stolen bases in 157 at-bats.

(6/30/14) Orioles first baseman Steve Pearce went 2 for 5 with two home runs and four RBI in his team's 7-1 win over the Rangers Monday.
Pearce started things off with a two-run home run in the first inning and slugged another two-run shot in the fourth inning. He's come alive during the second half of June, smacking five home runs since June 17 while collecting multiple hits in eight of his 12 games during that stretch. Pearce has hit .327/.385/.592 with nine home runs and 25 RBI in 147 at-bats.

Start and sit hitters for Week 17
Which hitters are facing favorable matchups in the first full week after the All-Star break? Our Scott White shares his recommendations for the upcoming scoring period.
|Steve Pearce finished 2013 with a .261 batting average and four home runs over 119 at-bats. While Orioles traded for David Lough in the offseason, Pearce enters 2014 with probably his greatest shot at playing time in his six-season career (having to chip away from rookie Henry Urrutia, veteran Nolan Reimold, and Lough for at-bats in the outfield and DH). Pearce, 30, is a former top-100 prospect who showed some nice power and batting average potential early in his minor league career (and hit .318 as recently as 2012 in Triple-A), but never saw it translate to much in the majors. His career-high in at-bats was set in 2012 (159), but his defensive flexibility -- and the lack of slam-dunk starting options in Baltimore -- give Pearce some hope of playing time. He's a reserve pick, at best, in AL-only Roto formats, but Pearce could see upwards of 300 at-bats this season if things fall the right way.
