Kremer tossed six innings Monday in Seattle, permitting two hits, two walks and one run with four strikeouts in a 5-3 win. He did not factor in the decision. This was far and away Kremer's best start of the year as it was his first time going at least five innings and allowing fewer than three runs. The strong performance most likely earned him a bit more security as part of Baltimore's rotation.
Kremer (0-2) allowed six runs on 10 hits with four strikeouts over 4.1 innings while taking the loss to the Yankees on Wednesday. Kremer's biggest mistakes were a pair of home runs -- a solo shot to Mike Ford in the second inning and Gio Urshela's three-run blast in the third. The 25-year-old Kremer hasn't found much success this season with an 8.40 ERA, 2.00 WHIP and 18:6 K:BB across 15 innings. Given his struggles, it's unclear how long they'll let Kremer work as the fifth starter. He's currently projected for another start Monday in Seattle.
Kremer was recalled from the Orioles' alternate training site ahead of his scheduled start against the Yankees on Wednesday. Kremer will make his fourth start of the season Wednesday, and he could reclaim a spot in the rotation since the Orioles have just one day off in the next two weeks. Kremer posted a 6.75 ERA and 14:6 K:BB in 10.2 innings across his first three starts of the year.
Kremer will start Wednesday's game against the Yankees, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. He has a 6.75 ERA, 1.87 WHIP and 14:6 K:BB in 10.2 innings through three appearances. It's unclear whether this is just a spot start or an opportunity to earn further turns on the mound.
Kremer was optioned to the alternate training site following Saturday's 6-1 win over the Rangers, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports. He didn't factor in the decision after allowing one run on five hits with six strikeouts and one walk over 4.2 innings. The Orioles didn't score any runs until the final three frames Saturday, so the 25-year-old wouldn't have picked up the victory even if he went the required five innings. Kremer started on three days' rest and delivered his best start of the season on the road. Baltimore has a pair of scheduled off days this week, so the right-hander will head to the alternate site and could remain there until the team needs a fifth starter April 27 versus the Yankees.
