Blach (1-3) allowed six earned runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out three across 2.1 innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Dodgers.
Blach managed to retired the first batter of the game but then proceeded to allow six of the next eight batters he faced to reach base. That resulted in four earned runs in the first inning before he allowed a two-run homer to Corey Seager in the third frame to sufficiently sink his outing. Since joining the Orioles, Blach has surrendered 19 earned runs across 16.2 frames.
Blach is scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Dodgers, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Blach will face a familiar foe in the Dodgers after spending the first few seasons of his career with the Giants. The 28-year-old has struggled with a 10.95 ERA, 2.15 WHIP and 17:16 K:BB this season but pitched well in his last start with two runs allowed over five innings.
Blach (1-2) threw five innings and allowed two runs on two hits and four walks and earned the win in a 4-2 decision over the Rays in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader.
Blach shut out the Rays through the first three innings, but was tagged for a two-run homer from Travis d'Arnaud in the fourth. The 28-year-old was lifted after 75 pitches, and has been shaky with his new team. In three appearances with the Orioles since joining the team from the Giants, Blach has allowed 13 earned runs in 14.1 innings with a 12:10 K:BB. Overall, Blach has posted an ugly 10.95 ERA, 2.15 WHIP and 17 strikeouts in 24.2 innings this season.
Blach will be recalled from Triple-A Norfolk to start Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rays, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Blach has struggled across three starts with the Orioles since joining the team at the beginning of August, allowing 19 runs (18 earned) while posting a 12:8 K:BB across 13.1 innings. It's unclear if he'll remain in the rotation or head to the bullpen following Tuesday's outing.
Blach (0-2) took the loss after surrendering seven runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out two over four innings Friday against the Rays. He was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk after the game, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Blach allowed all seven of his runs in the second inning, resulting in a 7-1 loss for his club. The southpaw has struggled in the big leagues this season, posting a 12.81 ERA and 2.39 WHIP with 15 strikeouts over 19.2 innings. The Orioles won't need a fifth starter until rosters expand in September, so Blach could return to that role next month.
Blach allowed five runs on five hits with three walks and six strikeouts across 5.1 innings during a no-decision against the Red Sox on Sunday.
The Orioles spotted Blach a six-run lead, but the Red Sox scored 13 of the final 14 runs in the game, five of which came against Blach. The 28-year-old has allowed at least five runs in three of his four outings this season, so obviously that's led to some ugly numbers. He is 0-1 with a 12.06 ERA, 2.30 WHIP and 13 strikeouts with 10 walks in 15.2 innings during 2019.
Blach is listed as the Orioles' starting pitcher for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.
Blach was called up from Triple-A Norfolk when a sixth rotation member was needed for the Orioles' Aug. 12 doubleheader with the Yankees. Taking the hill in the second game of the twin bill in his Baltimore debut, Blach lasted just four innings, giving up seven runs on seven hits and three walks. That ugly showing apparently won't disqualify him from earning another chance to lock down a rotation spot, though he may need to demonstrate improvement Sunday to earn any future turns.
Blach (0-1) gave up seven runs (six earned) on seven hits and three walks while striking out four through four innings to take the loss against the Yankees on Monday.
It was a tough day for Blach. The 28-year-old gave up four runs in the first four frames and seemed to settle down with an eight-pitch third inning, but he went on to allow another four runs over the next two innings. Blach was called up for the second game of a doubleheader, so he may be returning to Triple-A after this performance. Blach has a 13.94 ERA with a 7:7 K:BB through 10.1 innings this season.
The Orioles recalled Blach from Triple-A Norfolk ahead of his scheduled start Monday in the second game of a doubleheader with the Yankees, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Blach will step into the Baltimore rotation for his team debut, but he won't be guaranteed any further turns with the big club if he fails to keep the Yankees' bats at bay, something the entire pitching staff has struggled to do all season. The soft-tossing lefty has posted a 5.98 ERA and 1.63 WHIP across 93.1 innings at the Triple-A level this season.
Blach will start Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Yankees, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Baltimore will have to make a roster move in between the two games to officially add Blach to the roster. He has a 5.98 ERA in the minors this year, which, coupled with the matchup, makes him a very unappealing fantasy option.
Blach is expected to join the Orioles for Monday's doubleheader, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
He will either start Game 2 or offer bullpen help as the 26th man. Blach has a 5.98 ERA in the minors this year and would be an unappealing fantasy option regardless of his role in the twin bill.
Blach was claimed by the Orioles and optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday.
Blach spent parts of four seasons in the big leagues with the Giants but never really established himself, recording a 4.56 ERA and a poor 12.4 percent strikeout rate. He owns a 5.93 ERA in 91 innings with Triple-A Sacramento this season.
Blach was designated for assignment Saturday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Blach has bounced between the big-league club and Triple-A Sacramento this season but now finds himself removed from the 40-man roster. In 6.1 major-league innings in 2019, the 28-year-old gave up 10 earned runs off 14 hits while only managing a 3:4 K:BB. Right-hander Logan Webb was reinstated from the inactive list in a corresponding move.
Blach was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday.
Blach was recalled to San Francisco on Friday. He made one appearance with the club prior to being optioned and allowed three earned runs on seven hits and a walk across three innings.
Blach was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Friday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Blach has made just one appearance in the big leagues this season, and he was rocked for seven runs over 3.1 innings of work. He'll aim for a better result this time around.
Blach was returned to Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday.
Blach made just one appearance during his most recent stint with the big club, allowing seven runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out one across 3.1 innings of relief during Tuesday's 10-3 loss to the Dodgers. Stephen Vogt was summoned to the majors in a corresponding roster move.
Blach was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Monday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Blach was promoted to the major leagues after Derek Holland (finger) was moved to the 10-day injured list. Blach made 13 starts in 2018 for San Francisco and posted a 4.25 ERA with 75 strikeouts over 118.2 innings, though it's unclear if he'll be used as a starter or a reliever during his time in the big leagues.
Blach was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Blach lost out on both a starting role and a bullpen spot, but he may not be off the team for long, as he's likely to be one of the first pitchers called up in the event of an injury. In 118.2 innings as a swingman last season, the lefty recorded a mediocre 4.25 ERA, with his quite low 14.7 percent strikeout rate preventing him from being much more than a back-end starter.
Blach tossed 2.1 scoreless innings, giving up one hit and two walks while striking out three in Monday's spring win over the Dodgers.
Blach lowered his spring ERA to 3.24 over 8.1 innings, all coming in multi-inning relief appearances. The soft-tossing southpaw has had little success as a starter, and it looks like the team isn't giving him too much of a shot at winning a rotation spot based on his usage this spring.
Blach has made his last three appearances out of the Giants' bullpen, tossing 5.2 innings over that span and giving up two runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out five.
Blach picked up a spot start Aug. 11 against the Pirates after Chris Stratton was dropped from the rotation, but the lefty was unable to impress in the outing, giving up four runs over four innings to take the loss. The Giants have since opted to go with Casey Kelly as their fifth starter, with Stratton also set to rejoin the rotation Tuesday against the Mets to replace the injured Dereck Rodriguez (hamstring). Manager Bruce Bochy indicated that Rodriguez will likely be able to return from the disabled list over the weekend, so any window for Blach to rejoin the rotation looks like it has probably closed at this point.
