Orioles' Keegan Akin: Yields four runs in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akin allowed four runs on five hits and a walk over three innings Sunday, striking out four in the win over Toronto. He did not factor in the decision.

Most of the damage against Akin came in the third inning, when he allowed a pair of homers to Vladimir Guerrero and Lourdes Gurriel. After he left the game down 4-1, Baltimore's offense blew up for six runs in the fourth and fifth innings combined. Akin finishes the 2020 season with a 1-2 record and 4.56 ERA in 25.2 innings.

Orioles' Keegan Akin: Gives up four runs in short start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akin (1-2) was tagged with the loss Tuesday against the Red Sox. He allowed four runs (two earned) on eight hits while fanning six across four innings.

Akin has averaged 7.25 strikeouts per outing across his last four starts, something quite impressive considering he hasn't pitched more than 5.1 innings in any of those games. The ability to miss bats is clearly there and he is also getting results, as he has allowed more than three earned runs just once all year long.

Orioles' Keegan Akin: Nine strikeouts in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akin (1-1) allowed three hits and one walk while striking out nine across five scoreless innings to earn the win Wednesday against Atlanta.

Akin held Atlanta's lineup in check throughout his time on the mound, allowing nothing more than a single. He also punched out a career-best nine batters on the strength of 19 swinging strikes across 93 total pitches. It's been a mixed bag for Akin through four career starts, as he's maintained a 3.38 ERA and struck out 25 batters across 18.2 frames. However, he's also struggled with his command, surrendering nine free passes in that span. He'll take his next turn through the rotation Tuesday at Boston.

Orioles' Keegan Akin: Early exit in nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akin (0-1) took the loss in the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Yankees, surrendering four runs on three hits and a walk over only two-thirds of an inning. He struck out one.

Both games in the twin bill started badly for the O's -- Alex Cobb gave up two homers before recording an out in the matinee, and then Akin couldn't get out of the first inning at all. The rookie southpaw had looked good in his first two big-league starts, but Friday's quick outing sent his ERA soaring to 4.61.

Orioles' Keegan Akin: Start vs. Yankees postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akin won't start Thursday after the game against the Yankees was postponed.

Thursday's game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Friday. Akin will take the mound for Game 2 of the twin bill, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.

Orioles' Keegan Akin: Strong in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akin pitched 5.1 scoreless innings versus the Yankees on Saturday, allowing three hits and four walks while striking out eight. He did not factor in the decision.

Akin threw 91 pitches (57 strikes) in Saturday's game while locked in a pitchers' duel with Gerrit Cole. Unfortunately for Akin, the Orioles' bats didn't come alive until he was out of the game. He lowered his ERA to 2.08 with a 1.15 WHIP and 15 strikeouts across four appearances (two starts) spanning 13 innings. The 25-year-old lines up for a rematch with the Yankees on Friday in his next start.

Orioles' Keegan Akin: Second start coming Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akin is scheduled to start Saturday's game against the Mets, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

As expected, Akin will receive a second turn through the rotation after making his first MLB start in Monday's 4-3 win over the Blue Jays. He tossed 81 pitches in the outing, working 4.1 innings and surrendering three runs (two earned) on three hits and two walks while striking out six. Manager Brandon Hyde suggested earlier in the week that Akin would likely have his workload monitored carefully the rest of the season, so 25-year-old shouldn't be expected to see his pitch count increase much from Monday.

Orioles' Keegan Akin: No-decision in first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akin allowed two unearned runs on three hits and two walks across 4.1 innings in Monday's 4-3 win over the Blue Jays. He struck out six.

As expected, Akin was on a pitch count Monday and was only allowed to throw 81 pitches. Nonetheless, the rookie was solid in his first career start, fanning six while not allowing an earned run. Akin will look to qualify for the win when he toes the rubber Saturday against the Yankees.

Orioles' Keegan Akin: Confirmed as starter Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akin will start Monday's game against the Blue Jays.

As Jon Heyman of MLB Network suggested would be the case when Akin was called up Sunday, the lefty will step into the rotation Monday as a replacement for Tommy Milone, who was traded to the Braves over the weekend. The 2016 second-round pick has struck out more than a batter per inning at each minor-league stop, but finding the zone was an issue for him at Triple-A Norfolk last season, when he walked 12.1 percent of the batters he faced. Akin made his first two big-league appearances in relief this season, giving up three runs on two hits and a walk while striking out one in 3.1 innings. According to Joe Trezza of MLB.com, manager Brandon Hyde said Akin would be on an unspecified pitch count in his first start, and likely "for the rest of the year."

Orioles' Keegan Akin: Rejoins big club, likely as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Orioles recalled Akin from their alternate training site Sunday.

Though Akin was optioned to the alternate site Thursday, he'll be eligible to rejoin the big club before the minimum 10 days after Mychal Givens was traded to Colorado on Sunday. While Akin made his first two big-league appearances out of the bullpen, he'll likely be in line for a rotation assignment during his upcoming stint with Baltimore. After dealing away Tommy Milone to the Braves in a separate deal Sunday, Baltimore has an opening for a new starter in Monday's series finale with the Blue Jays in Buffalo, and Akin is expected to receive the nod, according to Jon Heyman of MLB Network.

Orioles' Keegan Akin: Sent to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akin was optioned to Baltimore's alternate training site Thursday.

Akin spent just two days in the majors, retiring the only batter he faced in his lone appearance. He's an option to rejoin the big-league bullpen down the road. Jose Iglesias was activated from the injured list in a corresponding move.

Orioles' Keegan Akin: Back in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akin was recalled from the Orioles' alternate training site Tuesday.

The 25-year-old southpaw logged a 4.73 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 131 strikeouts in 112.1 innings at Triple-A last year but gave up three runs in three innings in his first and only MLB outing earlier this year. With Wade LeBlanc (elbow) done for the year, Akin could get some starts or work as a long reliever going forward.

Orioles' Keegan Akin: Optioned to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akin was optioned to the Orioles' alternate training site Friday.

Akin had a rough outing in Friday's loss to the Nationals as Baltimore's pitching staff was unable to quiet Washington's bats. The southpaw threw 48 pitches over three innings, 29 of which were strikes. He'll work on improving at the alternate training site, but he could rejoin the major-league bullpen at some point in 2020.

Orioles' Keegan Akin: Recalled from alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akin was recalled from the Orioles' alternate training site Saturday.

Akin will join the major-league roster for the first time after putting up solid results over four years in the minors. The southpaw served as a starter in the minor leagues, but he could take on a bullpen role with the Orioles for the time being. Over 24 starts with Triple-A Norfolk last season, Akin posted a 4.73 ERA and 131:61 K:BB over 112.1 innings.

Orioles' Keegan Akin: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akin was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday.

The Orioles added Akin to the 40-man roster in November to protect him from the Rule 5 draft, but he was unable to secure a spot on the Opening Day roster. The 24-year-old had a 4.73 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 131:61 K:BB over 112.1 innings with Norfolk last season, and he could make his major-league debut at some point in 2020.

Orioles' Keegan Akin: Shielded from Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akin was added to the Orioles' 40-man roster Wednesday.

The 24-year-old advanced to Triple-A Norfolk in 2019 and recorded a 4.73 ERA with a 131:61 K:BB over 112.1 innings. Akin was added to the 40-man roster in order to protect him from the Rule 5 draft. Although it's encouraging to see him advance through the minor-league ranks, Akin will likely have to show more consistency before becoming a viable option in the Orioles' pitching staff.

Orioles' Keegan Akin: Returns from groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akin (groin) started Friday for Double-A Bowie and gave up four runs on three hits and four walks over two innings in an 11-0 loss to Harrisburg.

Akin only missed one turn through the rotation as a result of the groin discomfort he experienced during a June 26 outing. Though he had a rough outing Friday, the 23-year-old has generally been solid in his first season in the Eastern League. Over 87.2 innings with Bowie, Akin has posted a 2.98 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 95 strikeouts.

Orioles' Keegan Akin: Departs early Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akin exited Tuesday's start for Double-A Bowie early with groin tightness, Steve Melewski of MASNSports.com reports.

Akin allowed two runs on one hit and six walks over four innings before being lifted from the contest with the groin discomfort. The 23-year-old entered Tuesday's game with a 2.53 ERA on the year.

Orioles' Keegan Akin: Taking aim at AFL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akin will report to Glendale to play in this year's Arizona Fall League, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports.

Akin, the Orioles' second-round pick in 2016, started his first full season with High-A Frederick. He had some ups and downs, but managed a 3.26 ERA over his last 10 starts before hitting the 7-day disabled list with an undisclosed injury. His development this fall should offer a strong indication of how far off he is from making his MLB debut.
