The three-time All-Star has a team-best .322 batting average with two home runs and seven RBIs. On April 26, LeMahieu went 2-for-5 with two singles and two runs scored.

Right fielder Aaron Judge is a big-time slugger with major power. Judge also has a rocket of an arm from the outfield.

Why you should back the Orioles

He also has 16 strikeouts. Zimmermann produced two scoreless starts to start the year and tossed six strikeouts in back-to-back games.
