Ryan Flaherty 'excited' for 'great opportunity'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/3/2014) The Orioles have plenty of candidates to replace Brian Roberts at second base, including newcomer Jemile Weeks and prospect Jonathan Schoop, but Ryan Flaherty is considered the lead option to win the job, according to The Baltimore Sun.

"Every player wants to get every day at-bats," Flaherty said. "Obviously there’s 25 guys on the roster and there’s only room for nine or 10 [every day]. It’s definitely good to try to get into a rhythm but you have to earn that and that’s something you have to prove you can do. We’ll see what happens this year. I’m excited for it.

"It’s a great opportunity. You’ve got to take advantage of it and like I said, we’ll see what they think of everything but I’m excited to get going and it’s definitely a great opportunity."

Flaherty, who played second base, third base and shortstop in the minors, said Roberts helped him out "a ton" learning how to play second before the veteran infielder signed with the Yankees in the offseason.

"A lot of what I learned I have to give credit to him for sure," Flaherty said. "When you develop a relationship with someone and all of a sudden they’re gone, it’s tough.  But it’s part of the business. It’s part of the game. The show moves on, you know."


Orioles could start Ryan Flaherty at second base


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) The Orioles are not actively looking for a second baseman and could go with Ryan Flaherty as the starter at the position, MLB.com reports.

Flaherty hit .224/.293/.390 with 10 home runs and 27 RBI in 246 at-bats last season. The team could also opt to use recent acquisition Jemile Weeks at the position.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

Flaherty recorded his first hits since Sept. 8 and had just two -- both doubles -- in September before Wednesday's game. Flaherty is attempting to prove he can be an everyday player for the Orioles next season.

Ryan Flaherty fills in for Manny Machado


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2013) Orioles second baseman Ryan Flaherty just missed hitting three home runs Sunday in a loss at Toronto.

Ryan Flaherty has two-hit night


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2013) Orioles struggling second baseman Ryan Flaherty looked good against Justin Verlander Tuesday night in Detroit. Flaherty picked up two hits off the starter in the 5-2 win.

Ryan Flaherty improved since demotion


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2013) Orioles second baseman Ryan Flaherty is hitting better since returning from his demotion to the minor leagues on May 18, MASNSports.com reports Monday. 

Back since May 29, Flaherty has gone 8 for 29 (.276) since his return over nine games with two doubles and two RBI. He had gone 12 for 90 (.133) before his demotion over 30 games with two homers, six RBI and 26 strikeouts. 

Manager Buck Showalter said he's seen progress from Flaherty the second time around. 

"Little bit," Showalter said. "He has hit some balls on the button right at people. He just missed a home run at Houston. I like that he is playing a good second base for the most part and he's turning the double play. He's a hard tryer. Trying to stay selective when you are not hitting for as high an average as you want to is hard. It's hard because you are trying to get three hits in one at-bat. It takes a lot of maturity to just grind each pitch and he's trying to do that. We'll see. As long as he's playing good defense and working hard at it. He and Alexi (Casilla) are our best options right now."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Flaherty was optioned to Norfolk Saturday after hitting just .133/.228/.233 in 30 games to start the season.

"Last year, he was a Rule 5 guy and the circumstances were different," Showalter said. "We got him through the year and he was contributor from last year, and I think [he] will be again. But he needs to go get his legs back under him, offensively, his confidence, everything."
