Orioles' Jimmy Paredes starting at second base Tuesday vs. Mets
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(3:42 pm ET) Without the use of a designated hitter at his disposal, Orioles manager Buck Showalter has inserted Jimmy Paredes at second base for Tuesday's matchup against the Mets. Paredes is making his second start at second this year, but his bat is what is likely keeping him in the lineup.
In 51 at-bats this season, Paredes is batting a robust .353 with three homers and 10 RBI. He has been a revelation early on, and should continue to see regular playing time while his bat stays hot.
Orioles DH Jimmy Paredes hits game-tying double in win Sunday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/4/15) Jimmy Paredes just keeps on clicking for the Orioles. Making his 10th consecutive start for manager Buck Showalter, Paredes went 1 for 4 with a key RBI double in Sunday's win over the Rays. The seventh-inning double, which tied the game at two runs apiece, gives Paredes a three-game hit streak, and hits in six of his last seven games.
"He doesn't waste one at-bat, one opportunity, one infield session, one BP time. He's not going to waste anything," Showalter said, per MASNSports.com. "I think once you've kind of been through the yo-yoing around to different organizations. ... And I'd like to think he likes it here. There's nothing that produces confidence in players more than knowing somebody has confidence in them and likes them. He knows we like what he brings and he works very hard on any weaknesses that he might have.
Paredes is hitting .286 with two doubles and a triple over his last five games.
Orioles to have hard time taking Jimmy Paredes out of lineup
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/27/15) Buck Showalter has already declared that there should be space on the Orioles roster for Jimmy Paredes when J.J. Hardy returns from the disabled list in about a week.
One would certainly think so based on how Paredes is swinging the bat. Showalter will likely have to find him some significant playing time.
Paredes is batting .352 with five homers, eight doubles and 17 RBI in 24 games since joining the team in 2014. He was 8-for-15 with two doubles, one triple and a tater with seven RBI in the just-completed series against Boston. And at least one teammate is quite impressed.
"It's amazing watching that guy," Steve Pearce told MASNSports. "Hope he keeps it rolling. He could hit in the top of the order or the middle of the lineup. He can do some damage with the bat."
