David Hess looked like he was going to be a really good young pitcher when he started off his rookie season back in May but he has struggled after a hot start.
Not that it means he can’t end up being that good-looking young right-hander that Orioles fans saw in May but the road won’t be easily traveled.
After a tough June, Hess went back down for almost all of July but returned to go 1–3 in August, despite some decent outings. He went at least six innings and gave up no more than two runs in his final three starts of the month.
But he gave up nine hits and four runs in four innings in another loss to Kansas City to begin September. It’s a reminder of what can happen in games he starts, despite the flashes.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay got the day off to travel back home after getting hit hard on Wednesday in the third and final game in Toronto. Tampa Bay still won the series but missed a chance at a sweep.
Tommy Pham struggled in his first burst of games with Tampa Bay after coming over from St. Louis but has raised his batting average nearly twenty points over the last two weeks.
He missed Wednesday’s loss with a groin problem, though, and is in question for this one, too. Tampa Bay’s lineup will miss him if he isn’t able to get back soon.

I’m still going to take Tampa Bay, which is the superior side, but keep an eye on Pham’s status. Friday’s game should give us a good indication as per his status in this one.
