Manager Brandon Hyde has said it time and time again — the Orioles are making due with what they have. And the players they are trotting out to the middle infield this season are not exactly awe-inspiring.
So far this year, Orioles second basemen are hitting a combined .251/.292/.403 with 11 home runs, 34 RBI, 17 BB and 56 SO in 283 at-bats. Shortstops, on the other hand, have a cumulative stat line of .200/.262/.308 with three home runs, 13 RBI, 18 BB and 83 SO in 260 at-bats.
Hyde has used a combination of three main players in the middle infield this season.
