Kremer was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Friday.
The 25-year-old surrendered six runs while recording only one out in Thursday's start versus Toronto, prompting his return to the minors. Kremer has made 12 starts for the Orioles this season and has struggled with a 7.25 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 45:24 K:BB across 49.2 innings. He may need to show significant improvement at Triple-A in order to receive another look in the big-league rotation.
Kremer (0-7) was charged with the loss Thursday against the Blue Jays after surrendering six runs while recording one out. He gave up two hits and five walks without registering a strikeout.
After walking the bases loaded to start things off, Kremer allowed his fourth batter to reach with an RBI single. He did manage to get Randal Grichuk to ground out, causing another run, but it only got worse from there. Cavan Biggio walked, and Lourdes Gurriel capitalized with a grand slam. Kremer issued yet another free pass, this time to Joe Panik, before he was lifted from the atrocious outing. The right-hander, still winless on the season, had performed well during his previous two starts to hold onto his spot in the rotation with John Means (shoulder) and Bruce Zimmermann (biceps) on the injured list. If he gets another chance, it will tentatively come on the road against the Astros on Tuesday.
Kremer didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 10-7 loss to the Blue Jays after giving up two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out six over six innings.
The quality start was the second of the season for Kremer, who looked poised to pick up his first win of the campaign until the Baltimore bullpen squandered a 7-4 lead in the ninth inning. While wins will likely remain few and far between for Kremer while he pitches for a 23-47 Baltimore squad, he's performed well enough over his past two starts to at least stick in the rotation while John Means (shoulder) and Bruce Zimmermann (biceps) are on the shelf.
Kremer will start Saturday's game against the Blue Jays, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Baltimore is down two starting pitchers in John Means (shoulder) and Bruce Zimmermann (biceps), so Kremer will receive a second straight turn through the rotation following his promotion from Triple-A Norfolk earlier in the week. He acquitted himself well in his start Monday against Cleveland, working 5.1 innings and giving up four runs (three earned) on four hits and no walks en route to taking a loss. For the season, Kremer is 0-6 with a 6.65 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 39:16 K:BB in 43.1 innings.
Kremer (0-6) took the loss Monday, giving up four runs (three earned) on four hits over 5.1 innings in a 4-3 loss to Cleveland. He struck out two without walking a batter.
The 25-year-old continues to hunt for his first win of 2021, but this was actually one of Kremer's better efforts for Baltimore -- it's only the second time in 10 starts he's pitched past the fifth inning, and he'd surrendered nine earned runs over seven innings in his last two starts before his late-May demotion. He'll carry a 6.65 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 39:16 K:BB through 43.1 innings into his next outing.
Kremer has been recalled by the Orioles and will start Monday's game against Cleveland, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.
Kremer was sent to Triple-A Norfolk on May 26 after he allowed five earned runs on six hits and three walks across four innings in his last start. The right-hander has been charged with five losses in his first nine major-league starts this year, but he'll take the mound in Monday's series opener. In two starts with the minor-league club, Kremer allowed five runs (four earned) on three hits and five walks while striking out 14 in 8.2 innings.
The Orioles optioned Kremer to Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday.
Kremer heads back to the minors one day after he was roughed up by the Twins for five runs on six hits and three walks over four innings to drop to 0-5 on the season. The Orioles haven't named an immediate replacement in the rotation for Kremer, but long reliever Keegan Akin would appear to be the most logical option to fill the opening.
Kremer (0-5) allowed five earned runs on six hits and three walks while striking out five across four innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Twins.
Kremer struggled with his control beyond his three walks, with two runs crossing the plate on wild pitches in the second inning. He was also hit hard at times, as he surrendered two extra-base hits in the same frame. Though he's shown glimpses of turning his promise as a prospect into results, Kremer now has a 6.87 ERA with a 37:16 K:BB across 38 innings this season.
Kremer (0-4) allowed four earned runs on five hits and four walks while striking out three across three innings to take the loss Thursday against the Rays.
Kremer allowed three hits, two walks and all four of his earned runs in the second inning. However, he was never really all that effective, as he allowed multiple baserunners in all three frames that he pitched. Across eight starts this season, Kremer has maintained a 6.35 ERA and 32:13 K:BB across 34 innings. He's projected to take the mound Tuesday at the Twins.
Kremer allowed two runs on five hits while striking out four over five innings in a no-decision against the Yankees on Friday.
Both runs Kremer gave up came off the bat of Aaron Judge as he was taken deep twice by the 29-year-old slugger. He otherwise didn't face too much pressure with the rest of the Yankees lineup, allowing just three singles while not walking a batter. Kremer remains winless on the year with a 5.81 ERA and will look to change that in a home matchup with the Rays next week.
Kremer (0-3) allowed three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out three in five innings to take the loss against the Red Sox on Sunday.
Kremer had his best start of the season Monday, and he allowed just one run across the first five innings Sunday. However, he gave up a pair of singles to begin the sixth inning, and the runners were later brought across the plate to put Kremer in line for his third loss of the year. The right-hander has posted a 6.23 ERA and 1.54 WHIP in 26 innings across his first six starts this season. Kremer tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Yankees on Friday.
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.
Kremer will start Saturday against the Rangers, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Kremer will be on three days' rest, as he most recently took the hill Tuesday against the Mariners. He was knocked out of that game after throwing just 54 pitches, however, so he should be allowed to go fairly deep into Saturday's contest if he can keep runs off the board.
Kremer didn't factor into the decision in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mariners after allowing four runs on four hits and a walk over three innings in a 7-6 win. He struck out three.
The young righty held Seattle off the board for two innings before the wheels came off in the third, and Kremer tossed 34 of 54 pitches for strikes before getting the hook. His ERA on the year sits at a bloated 10.50 through six innings with an 8:5 K:BB, but if he stays on turn, he'll get some extra time to clear his head before his next scheduled outing April 20 in Miami.
Kremer will not make his scheduled start Monday since the game has been postponed due to inclement weather, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.
The game was in a rain delay for well over an hour before it was called. It will be made up Tuesday as part of a doubleheader. Baltimore has not announced its pitching plans, but Kremer figures to just move back to start one game of the twin bill.
Kremer (0-1) took the loss against the Yankees on Tuesday, surrendering three runs on five hits and four walks while striking out five over three innings.
Despite working his way into a first-inning jam by loading the bases with no outs, Kremer struck out the next three Yankees to finish off the inning blemish-free. After veteran Jay Bruce got to Kremer in the second inning with a solo home run, the 25-year-old held it together until the fourth, when he walked three straight batters, prompting his exit from the game. Kremer debuted in the majors in September of last season, going 1-1 with a 4.92 ERA. He then struggled with his command during spring training, issuing 12 walks in 18.2 innings. He'll look to turn things around Monday at Seattle.
