Player Outlook
Danny Coulombe didn't make Minnesota's Opening Day roster and was subsequently traded to Baltimore, where he quickly established himself as the team's top left-handed reliever. The 34-year-old doesn't throw very hard - he averaged just 91.1 mph on his sinker - but gave up only 2 hits on the pitch all season. Coulombe's wicked breaking balls were effective as well, with all three pitches inducing 30-plus percent whiff rates, including an 86 mph cutter that he threw 42.5% of the time. This led to career-best marks across multiple categories, including strikeouts (58), WHIP (1.11) and holds (21). The southpaw also ranked in the 87th percentile or better in average exit velocity allowed (85.6 mph, 96th percentile), hard-hit percentage (30.4%, 95th) and walk rate (5.6%, 87th). On the heels of a strong season, Coulombe projects as one of Baltimore's top setup men for 2024.

  • Orioles' Danny Coulombe: Moved to 60-day IL

    The Orioles transferred Coulombe (elbow) to the 60-day injured list Saturday. Coulombe hasn't been ruled out for the season after undergoing left elbow surgery in June, but he'll give up his spot on the 40-man roster for the time being in order to make room for Vinny Nittoli.

  • Orioles' Danny Coulombe: Undergoes surgery

    Orioles general manager Mike Elias said Wednesday that Coulombe underwent surgery Tuesday to remove bone chips in his left elbow, Jacob Calvin Meyer of The Baltimore Sun reports. Elias said that the Orioles are still hopeful that Coulombe will be able to return to the team's bullpen before the end of the season, though the earliest possible return for the left-hander would likely be sometime in September. A clearer target date for a return timeline may emerge once the 34-year-old is cleared to begin throwing, but he's in line for a long stay on the injured list no matter what.

  • Orioles' Danny Coulombe: Gets MRI on elbow

    Coulombe said Wednesday that he underwent an MRI on his left elbow but remains optimistic that he'll avoid an extended stay on the 15-day injured list, Jacob Calvin Meyer of The Baltimore Sun reports. Coulombe -- who was placed on the IL on Tuesday with left elbow inflammation -- had Tommy John surgery back in 2011 but noted that the pain he's currently experiencing is in a different area of the elbow. The results of his MRI aren't yet known, but the reliever seems confident that he'll be back in the Baltimore bullpen in relatively short order.

  • Orioles' Danny Coulombe: Heads to IL with elbow inflammation

    The Orioles placed Coulombe on the 15-day injured list Tuesday with left elbow inflammation. Coulombe had given no indication that something might be wrong, having turned in five straight scoreless appearances. It's not clear how long he might be out, but his absence will be felt in the Orioles' bullpen, where he's posted a 2.42 ERA, 0.62 WHIP and 28:3 K:BB over 26 innings.

  • Orioles' Danny Coulombe: Collects first win

    Coulombe (1-0) allowed a hit in a scoreless inning and earned the win Wednesday over the Blue Jays. He did not issue a walk or strikeout a batter. Coulombe did his part in the top of the ninth inning to keep the game within reach for the Orioles, and Adley Rutschman rewarded him by walking it off with a two-run home run. Coulombe has not allowed a run over his last seven appearances, covering 6.1 innings with a 3:0 K:BB in that span. He's at a 2.16 ERA, 0.54 WHIP and 17:2 K:BB through 16.2 innings while adding a save, eight holds and a blown save as a reliable high-leverage arm. With Craig Kimbrel's struggles jolting the Orioles into a closer committee, it appears Coulombe remains more of a setup man at this stage of the campaign.

  • Orioles' Danny Coulombe: Avoids arbitration

    Coulombe signed a one-year contract with the Orioles on Monday that includes a club option for 2025. The deal buys out the left-hander's final year of arbitration eligibility, and potentially, his first year of free agency. Coulombe was excellent for Baltimore in 2023, collecting a 2.81 ERA and 58:12 K:BB over 51.1 innings. He'll be a key setup man in the bullpen again in 2024.

  • Orioles' Danny Coulombe: Ends regular season with loss

    Coulombe (5-3) allowed two runs (one earned) on two hits and struck out two over one inning, taking the loss Sunday versus the Red Sox. Two of Coulombe's three losses this season occurred over his last five appearances. He's allowed five runs (four earned) across his last 4.2 innings. Despite the late skid, he has a 2.81 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 58:12 K:BB with two saves and 21 holds through 51.1 innings this season. He'll be a key lefty in Baltimore's bullpen during the playoffs, though Yennier Cano and Tyler Wells are likely the top options for save chances.

  • Orioles' Danny Coulombe: Gets walked off Wednesday

    Coulombe (5-2) allowed a run on two hits over one-third of an inning, taking the loss Wednesday versus the Astros. Coulombe entered this series with a 12-inning scoreless streak, but the Astros have tagged him for two runs across one inning in two appearances. He allowed a double to Yainer Diaz and a walk-off single to Mauricio Dubon in Wednesday's contest. Coulombe has arguably been the Orioles' most consistent lefty reliever this year with a 2.64 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 53:11 K:BB through 48.2 innings, and he's added two saves and 20 holds over 57 appearances. While he's struggled in the series, he should still be able to hold down a setup role the rest of the way.

  • Orioles' Danny Coulombe: Grabs another win

    Coulombe (5-1) struck out one over 1.1 perfect innings to earn the win Sunday over the Diamondbacks. Jack Flaherty started to fade in the fifth inning, but Coulombe was able to step in and steady things for the Orioles. They rallied ahead in the sixth, allowing Coulombe to pick up his second win in as many outings. The southpaw has an 8.1-inning scoreless streak going, during which he's posted an 11:2 K:BB with a save and four holds. He's at a 2.51 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 52:10 K:BB over 43 innings this season, though his usage Sunday suggests he's not strictly confined to late-inning work.

  • Orioles' Danny Coulombe: Earns win Tuesday

    Coulombe (4-1) pitched 1.2 perfect innings to earn the win Tuesday over the White Sox. Dean Kremer left runners on base in the seventh inning, but Coulombe was able to pitch out of trouble just before the Orioles rallied ahead. Coulombe's scoreless streak is up to seven innings over eight appearances, and he has a 10:2 K:BB in that span. For the season, he's at a 2.59 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 51:10 K:BB with two saves and 20 holds over 41.2 innings. With Felix Bautista (elbow) sidelined, Coulombe and Yennier Cano figure to handle most of the high-leverage assignments.

  • Orioles' Danny Coulombe: Starts rehab assignment

    Coulombe (biceps) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday and struck out two batters over a scoreless inning.

  • Orioles' Danny Coulombe: Lands on injured list

    Coulombe was placed on the 15-day injured list Thursday with left biceps tendinitis.

The hope is that he'll be ready to go when his 15 days are up, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.Joey Krehbiel will take Coulombe's roster spot.

  • Orioles' Danny Coulombe: Earns first save

    Coulombe picked up the save in Sunday's 5-4 victory over the Marlins. He allowed a run on two hits over two-thirds of an inning. Colombe came on in relief of Eduard Bazardo in the ninth, allowing one inherited runner to score before allowing an RBI double to Dane Myers, cutting Baltimore's lead to 5-4 with two outs. However, Colombe coaxed a lineout from Luis Arraez to strand the tying run on second and pick up the first save of his MLB career. The 33-year-old lefty has been solid for the Orioles this season, pitching to a 2.90 ERA with a 1.10 WHIP over 31 innings. However, he's unlikely to see much more ninth-inning work with Felix Bautista firmly locked in as the closer.

    Coulombe was reinstated from the bereavement list Tuesday, Andy Kostka of TheBaltimoreBanner.com reports.

  • Orioles' Danny Coulombe: Nabs second win

    Coulombe (2-1) retired the only batter he faced to earn the win Sunday over the Rangers. Coulombe got Nathaniel Lowe to fly out to end the top of the eighth inning before the Orioles pulled ahead a half-inning later. This was Coulombe's sixth straight scoreless outing, a span in which he's covered 5.2 innings with an 8:1 K:BB. The southpaw seems to have bounced back from his rough patch in early May. He's now at a 2.37 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 27:4 K:BB through 19 innings while adding eight holds and two blown saves. He remains in the setup mix as part of the bridge to closer Felix Bautista.

  • Orioles' Danny Coulombe: Takes loss Saturday

    Coulombe (1-1) allowed a run on two hits in two-thirds of an inning Saturday versus Atlanta, taking the loss and a blown save. He didn't walk or strike out a batter. After emerging as a solid middle-relief option in April, Coulombe has blown two leads in two appearances to begin May. Bryan Baker left a runner on base with one out in the eighth inning, and Coulombe served up a two-run home run to pinch hitter Kevin Pillar. For the season, Coulombe is at a 3.00 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 16:3 K:BB across 12 innings, and he's picked up five holds. Despite the recent slump, he should still be part of the bridge to closer Felix Bautista when the Orioles are holding leads late.

  • Twins' Danny Coulombe: Won't make Opening Day roster

    Coulombe was reassigned to minor-league camp by the Twins on Sunday. Coulombe will not be a part of Minnesota's pitching staff to open the 2023 season. The 33-year-old southpaw did pitch well in the Grapefruit League with a 0.00 ERA over seven innings in six appearances, but he comes up short in his bid to break camp with the club. Coulombe could be an option for the Twins at some point in 2023, but he'll have to be added to the 40-man roster if/when Minnesota decides to promote him.
