June Rundown of MASN Articles

Another month has gone by, which means another month's worth of contributions by Camden Depot for MASNsports.com. Here are those articles for June:

Brach's leverage in O's bullpen is improving: Brad Brach has improved his peripheral numbers this season, and he could find himself with a bigger role in the Orioles' bullpen next season and beyond.

What can be expected of Nolan Reimold? After it was announced that the Orioles would promote Nolan Reimold, I took a look at his career numbers and injury history.

Another scrap heap success story for O's: Building a strong bullpen isn't always easy, yet the Orioles have done a solid job of building one every year under Buck Showalter. Chaz Roe is the latest unexpected relief addition to that successful group.

Delving into Ubaldo Jimenez's revival: Ubaldo Jimenez has been one of the success stories for the O's as the season's midpoint approaches. Why has he been so good? And should we have seen it coming?

Is it time to dump Norris from the rotation? Bud Norris has not pitched well at all this season, and he is blocking Kevin Gausman from making regular starts at the major league level. Gausman demonstrated last year that he's ready to pitch every fifth day in the majors, and the O's still haven't opened a spot for him. That should change.

As always, thanks for reading.
