Ex-Oriole report: Looking at the departed 2017 Orioles at the midway point

Alec Asher and Wade MileyMilwaukee Brewers

Miley, after opening the season on the DL with a torn groin, made his season debut for the Brewers on May 2. But he lasted only two starts before landing back on the DL with a strained right oblique. Miley returned in time to make one more start before the All-Star break. Overall, he’s 1-1 with a 2.38 ERA, but he’s walked nine batters in 11 1/3 innings. It appears his control hasn’t improved since he averaged 5.3 walks per nine innings for the Orioles last year.

Asher, who made 24 appearances for the Orioles last season, has pitched just two big league games this year for the Brewers. They happened exactly two months apart; a scoreless relief outing apiece on May 12 and July 12. In the latter, Asher pitched in relief in a game started by Miley, an occurrence that happened seven times for the Orioles last season.

    I can’t say I miss any of these guys, although I might miss Richard Rodriguez if I remembered him.

    Guys, just please lay them out in an article. Clicking repeatedly is a pain. Why do it that way?

      Thanks for the feedback, Boss. If you download our free mobile app (link below), the piece is laid out as a single article without the slides. We don’t do this type of format often, maybe once per month at the most.

        Okay, Steve, this may come as a total surprise, but there are still some of us using a desktop. LOL That being the case, could you also have a “view as one page” option?

    Add Manny to the list now. They got a nice haul in return it appears. All appear to be nice to very nice prospects.

    Arguably the best season by any ex-Orioles is one you neglected to mention, Paul, and that’s David Hernandez, who’s now with the Reds. He could have made the NL All-Star as a reliever. In 30 games, he’s 3-0, 1.85 ERA, 1.06 WHIP.

    He’s one player I hated to see get traded. At the other end of the spectrum is Vance “Vanimal” Worley, who’s struggled to an 0-3, 13.50 ERA, for Las Vegas, the Mets’ Triple-A team. Opposing hitters are pounding him for a .382 Ba.

      My bad. I didn’t notice that the players were limited to those who played for the O’s last season. Nevertheless, some fans might be interested to see that Hernandez is doing well, so not a total loss.
