Hot-hitting Jimmy Paredes starts at second base for Orioles


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/22/2015) 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. 


Orioles DH Jimmy Paredes blasts sixth home run of the year


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Orioles designated hitter Jimmy Paredes went 2 for 5 at the plate in Baltimore's 9-4 win over the Mariners on Tuesday.

Paredes did his damage in the sixth when he belted a two-run home run off of Danny Farquhar, his sixth of the season. He also added an RBI single in the game, totaling four RBI.

"Jimmy's such a sincere guy," manager Buck Showalter said to MASN Sports. "Those guys give themselves such a chance to be successful because he never gives in in the effort department. I was watching him during the last out. He's in every pitch.

"I know down deep he'd like to be playing a position right now, but it fits well for us what he's doing. I don't want to mess with him too much. That was a big hit. He had seven or eight changeups thrown there. Jimmy finally got one up and over, it was actually a ball, and he poked it into left field.

Paredes is now hitting .346 with 25 RBI in 104 at-bats this season.

“I’m a young guy. I want to be in the field,” Paredes said. “But if they give me a chance to be in the lineup at DH, I feel great with that. I enjoy the game and I’ll put some energy into it. I like being in the lineup every day. No matter what, I want to be in the lineup.” 

Paredes has started just three games at second base will making 18 starts at DH.

He also has five homers and 18 RBI in 88 at-bats this season and brought a 12-game hitting streak into Friday's game.


Jimmy Paredes just keeps on hitting for Orioles


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/15/2015) In the category of "who saw that one coming" is Orioles slugger Jimmy Paredes. Paredes, who has never played in more than 48 games in his career, has been seeing regular playing time at second base, third base, and primarily as the Orioles' designated hitter.

And he has rewarded manager Buck Showalter's faith in him by collecting hits in all but one of his 21 games played this season since being activated from the disabled list on April 18. He has at least one hit in all 12 games this month, and is hitting .347 (17 for 49) during the 12-game hitting streak. 

"I feel great because I've gotten an opportunity and have taken advantage of it. Been trying to do a good job and am so excited to get this chance," the 26-year-old Paredes said prior to Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays, per MASNSports.com.

Just over a month into the season and Paredes has already more than doubled his career-high in home runs with five.

"Just seeing the ball well and looking for a good pitch to hit," Paredes said, via MASN Sports. "When I see my pitch, I don't want to miss it. If I do, I just get ready for the next one and try to put a good swing on it. Just trying to be consistent."

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

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
(5/4/2015) 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.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

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."
