The Orioles intend to proceed through the regular season’s final four weeks with a five-man rotation — the odd man out being struggling right-hander Ubaldo Jiménez — while still using days off to give right-hander Dylan Bundy additional rest.
The Orioles have had six starting rotation options since acquiring right-hander Jeremy Hellickson before the nonwaiver trade deadline but have still posted a collective 4.82 ERA since Aug. 1, which ranks 20th in the major leagues.
He’s logged 159 1/3 innings in his first full season as a major league starter, which is 50 1/3 more than his total last year as he pitched the season’s first half as a reliever.
Alex Wells, whose exemplary command this season while pitching at Low-A Delmarva was hard to ignore, was named the organization’s annual Jim Palmer Minor League Pitcher of the Year on Tuesday.
Hardy initially went on the disabled list with a broken bone in his right wrist but is also dealing with arm soreness that prompted a cortisone injection in his elbow last week.
