Pitching depth propels Orioles to first place without Kyle Bradish and John Means

It’s the first day of May and the Orioles are in sole possession of first place. Baltimore contending hardly qualifies as a surprise after the Birds won the division last season, but the club’s hot start is impressive on multiple levels

This team entered 2024 with high expectations for the first time. The Orioles caught everyone off guard last year, but the young club has everyone in baseball paying attention right now. To make matters more difficult, every team in the division is either hovering around or playing above .500 baseball. It’s nothing new, but the AL East remains one of the most competitive divisions in baseball.
