Player Outlook
There were a lot of other factors at play, many of them more attention-grabbing, but Dean Kremer's second-half surge last year certainly aided the Orioles in their surprise push to the American League East title. He had a 5.04 ERA as of the end of June, but went on to register a 3.09 ERA with 75 strikeouts over his final 81.2 regular-season innings, and the O's went 13-2 across his final 15 starts. Kremer began utilizing his cutter more often, and in doing so saw a spike in groundballs along with less and less hard contact from opposing hitters. The overall numbers don't jump off the page -- Kremer owns a career 4.35 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 7.6 K/9 in 370.1 major-league innings -- but that should only serve to make him a value pick in fantasy drafts this spring. Just keep those cutters coming.

  • Orioles' Dean Kremer: Can't escape fifth inning

    Kremer did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks over 4.2 innings against the Yankees. He struck out four. Kremer entered the fifth inning in relatively good shape with a 2-1 lead but allowed a leadoff homer to Trent Grisham, then allowed two more batters to reach base, including a two-out walk to Aaron Judge that spelled the end to his day. Sunday represented Kremer's third start since returning from a triceps issue, and he's been held to 83-to-85 pitches while failing to make it past the fifth in all of those outings. He'll enter the All-Star break with a 4.38 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 64 strikeouts over 63.2 innings.

  • Orioles' Dean Kremer: Roughed up in loss

    Kremer (4-5) took the loss Tuesday against Chicago, allowing seven runs (five earned) on seven hits and three walks over four innings. He struck out three. Kremer allowed a run in each of his four innings Tuesday, with the three-run homer served up to Ian Happ in the fourth being the crucial blow. It was Kremer's second start since coming off the IL (triceps), and the veteran continues to be plagued by the long ball, particularly at home. He's given up multiple home runs in four of his five starts at Camden Yards this season. His nine homers allowed overall in that span are the most by an Orioles pitcher since Chris Tillman in 2009. Kremer is scheduled for one more start before the All-Star break, Sunday against the Yankees.

  • Orioles' Dean Kremer: Dazzles in return to mound

    Kremer (4-4) picked up the win over the Mariners on Wednesday, allowing two hits and two walks over five shutout innings while striking out eight. Kremer was fantastic in his return from a triceps strain, striking out six of the first 12 batters he faced while inducing 16 swings-and-misses in total. He came through in his first start back from the injured list and lowered his season ERA from 4.32 to 3.93 with the shutout performance. Kremer has now fanned at least six batters in three of his last four starts, dating back to May 5 against the Reds.

  • Orioles' Dean Kremer: Activated ahead of start

    The Orioles activated Kremer (triceps) from the 15-day injured list Wednesday. Kremer will rejoin the Orioles' rotation with a start Wednesday against the Mariners. He missed six weeks of action with a right triceps strain and did not pitch well on a rehab assignment, posting an 11.42 ERA and 9:4 K:BB over 8.2 innings. Even with a plus matchup on tap versus Seattle, fantasy managers might be wise to give Kremer a start or two before activating him.

  • Orioles' Dean Kremer: Starting Wednesday

    Kremer (triceps) is expected to be activated from the 15-day injured list to start Wednesday against Seattle, Andy Kostka of TheBaltimoreBanner.com reports. Kremer will make his return to the major-league rotation after missing six weeks of action with a right triceps strain. The right-hander has struggled to a 11.42 ERA with nine strikeouts while surrendering four home runs over 8.2 innings in three rehab outings with Triple-A Norfolk. As a result of Kremer's addition to the rotation, Corbin Burnes will be pushed back to make his next start in Thursday's series finale against the Mariners.

  • Orioles' Dean Kremer: Struggles again in rehab start

    Kremer (triceps) allowed four runs on six hits and two walks over 4.1 innings in his third rehab start with Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports. He struck out five batters. Kremer got his pitch count up to 75 and looks ready to return from the 15-day injured list from a workload standpoint, but it's unclear if Baltimore is keen on slotting him back into the rotation while he's largely struggled during the minor-league assignment. The right-hander has posted an 11.42 ERA and 9:4 K:BB over 8.2 innings across his three starts. He's been out since late May with a right triceps strain.

  • Orioles' Dean Kremer: Another rehab start Thursday

    Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said that Kremer (tricep) will make another rehab start Thursday at Triple-A Norfolk, Matt Weyrich of The Baltimore Sun reports. Kremer struggled in his second rehab outing this past Saturday with Norfolk, allowing five runs while recording just two outs. He got his pitch count to 59 in his first rehab start but was pulled from the second outing after throwing just 39 pitches due to a stressful first inning. It's possible Kremer will be ready to return from the 15-day injured list next week, though that decision depends on how he looks Thursday and how much he can get stretched out. The righty has been out since late May with a right triceps strain.

  • Orioles' Dean Kremer: Goes 3.2 innings in rehab start

    Kremer (tricep) struck out three and allowed five runs (two earned) on four hits and one walk over 3.2 innings in his rehab start Sunday with Triple-A Norfolk. Kremer spotted 37 of his 59 pitches in the rehab outing, his first since he was placed on the 15-day injured list May 21 with a right tricep strain. The Orioles haven't decided on Kremer's next step, but since teams typically want rehabbing starters to hit the 70-to-75-pitch mark prior to being activated, the right-hander could be in line for one more start with Norfolk or another affiliate during the upcoming week.

  • Orioles' Dean Kremer: Starting rehab assignment Sunday

    Kremer (triceps) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. Kremer is slated to throw around four innings in what will be his first outing since he landed on the 15-day injured list three weeks ago with a right triceps strain. It could be the only rehab start he needs before rejoining the Orioles' rotation. If that's the case, he would be set up to start next weekend in Houston.

  • Orioles' Dean Kremer: Throws bullpen session

    Kremer (triceps) threw a light bullpen session Monday, Matt Weyrich of The Baltimore Sun reports. It's the first time Kremer has thrown a bullpen since being placed on the injured list May 21 due to a right triceps strain. The 28-year-old right-hander is eligible to return from the IL on June 5, though general manager Mike Elias noted Monday that Kremer will need a rehab assignment before returning to the majors. Before his injury, Kremer posted a 3-4 record over nine starts with a 4.32 ERA and 1.12 WHIP across 50 innings.

  • Orioles' Dean Kremer: Out with triceps strain

    The Orioles placed Kremer on the 15-day injured list Friday, retroactive to May 21, with a right triceps strain. The right-hander was scheduled to start Saturday against the White Sox but will now be unavailable for at least the next couple weeks. It's yet another blow to Baltimore's rotation, which also lost John Means to a forearm strain earlier this week. Kremer will be eligible to return in early June, though it's unclear when he's expected to be healthy.

  • Orioles' Dean Kremer: Punches out 10

    Kremer (3-3) took the loss Sunday against Arizona, allowing six runs (three earned) on four hits and four walks over 5.2 innings. He struck out 10. Kremer notched double-digit strikeouts for the second time this season, tying his career high in the category. He fell off after retiring the first nine batters he faced, allowing at least two baserunners in each of the following innings before getting the yank in the sixth. He was pulled after allowing a two-run homer to Jake McCarthy and walking Kevin Newman consecutively. Despite having allowed nine homers in 46.0 innings this season, Kremer owns a solid 3.72 ERA and a 47:15 K:BB. Kremer's next start is scheduled to come Saturday against Seattle.

  • Orioles' Dean Kremer: Hit with second loss

    Kremer (0-2) took the loss Friday against Kansas City, allowing three earned runs on two hits and three walks while striking out three batters across 5.2 frames. Kremer held Baltimore off the scoreboard until Vinnie Pasquantino took him deep during the fourth inning. The score was still 1-0 when Kremer left the game in the sixth with two runners on base - both of whom came around to score - and a failed late rally by the Orioles' offense forced the right-hander to take his second loss of the young season. His performance Friday was certainly better than his previous outing against Milwaukee, and he's lined up for another chance to pick up his first win Wednesday against the Angels.

  • Orioles' Dean Kremer: Punches out five in no-decision

    Kremer did not factor into the decision Monday against the Royals, allowing three runs on three hits and one walk over 5.1 innings. He struck out five. Kremer showed in spring training that he might have more strikeout upside as he enters his fifth season with his 16 punchouts in 16 innings. That possibility came to fruition Monday as the 28-year-old collected five strikeouts despite his average fastball velocity being down 1.1-mph compared to last season (it averaged 93.5-mph against the Royals). Kremer allowed his three runs Monday via homers to Salvador Perez and Bobby Witt but otherwise held the Kansas City lineup in check. He is currently scheduled to pitch against the Pirates on the road in his next start.

  • Orioles' Dean Kremer: In line to start Monday

    Kremer is listed as the Orioles' probable starting pitcher for Monday's game against the Royals in Baltimore. Kremer headed into spring training with an inside track to a spot in the Orioles' Opening Day rotation, and he was able to secure a starting role without much stress after both Kyle Bradish (elbow) and John Means (forearm) were placed on the injured list. The 28-year-old right-hander's early-season form will likely determine whether he sticks as a member of the rotation once both Bradish and Means are ready to make their respective debuts. Kremer finished Grapefruit League play with a 3.94 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 16:6 K:BB over 16 innings.

  • Orioles' Dean Kremer: Early exit against Guardians

    Kremer escaped with a no-decision Friday during the Orioles' 9-8 loss to the Guardians, surrendering six runs (three earned) on seven hits and two walks over 3.1 innings. He struck out three. Fourth-inning errors by Anthony Santander and Gunnar Henderson softened the blow to Kremer's ERA, but the right-hander was far from sharp, managing only eight swinging strikes over his 91 pitches in his shortest outing since June 30. The 27-year-old has faded down the stretch -- Kremer hasn't lasted longer than five innings in any of his four September starts, posting a 4.67 ERA, 1.79 WHIP and 15:11 K:BB through 17.1 innings as he adds to his career-high innings total (167.1). Kremer will look to get back in the win column for the first time since Aug. 23 in his final start of the regular season, likely to come at home next week against the Red Sox.

  • Orioles' Dean Kremer: Allows one run in no-decision

    Kremer did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing one run on two hits and two walks over five innings against the Rays. He struck out five. After surrendering a solo home run to Brandon Lowe in the first inning, Kremer settled down and held the Rays off the board for his final four frames, ultimately winding up with a no-decision in the Orioles' extra-innings win. It was a strong bounce-back effort from Kremer after he gave up five runs in 4.1 innings in his previous outing against St. Louis. Overall, the 27-year-old right-hander is 12-5 with a 4.17 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 146:52 K:BB in 30 starts (164 innings) this season. Kremer's currently stated to face the Guardians on the road in his next outing.

  • Orioles' Dean Kremer: Solid in no-decision

    Kremer did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing four hits and three walks over 4.2 scoreless innings against the Angels. He struck out five. Kremer held the Angels scoreless but was unable to get through five innings, as he was pulled at 92 pitches in his shortest start since July 30. However, the outing marked his eighth consecutive appearance allowing three runs or fewer, a stretch in which Kremer boasts a 2.35 ERA and 38:15 K:BB across 46 innings. He's tentatively scheduled to take on the Cardinals at Camden Yards his next time out.

  • Orioles' Dean Kremer: Grounds Blue Jays for 12th win

    Kremer (12-5) earned the victory over Toronto on Wednesday, allowing five hits and no walks while striking out five batters over six scoreless innings. Kremer had originally been scheduled to start Thursday, but he was moved up a day as a result of Jack Flaherty (general soreness) being scratched. The adjustment didn't faze Kremer, who picked up his third straight quality start and his first scoreless outing since May 10. The right-hander has been pitching well since ending June with a three-inning, seven-run blow-up, posting a 3.06 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 47:19 K:BB over his subsequent nine starts covering 63 frames.

  • Orioles' Dean Kremer: Earns quality start in loss

    Kremer dropped to 11-5 after allowing three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four over six innings in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Padres. Kremer turned in a baseline quality start, with just a rough third inning tarnishing his line. He's allowed no more than three runs in any of his last five starts, giving up 11 runs over 29.1 innings in that span. For the season, he's posted a 4.50 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 124:43 K:BB through 138 innings over 25 starts. The right-hander should get a little extra time to shake off this loss with Baltimore recently transitioning to a six-man rotation. He's lined up for a home start versus the Blue Jays next week.
