As the calendar turns to September, the Baltimore Orioles sit seven games above .500 and only two games behind the Blue Jays for a playoff spot. With one full month remaining, the O’s hope to continue their hot streak into October and hopefully into a first playoff appearance since 2016.
Which Baltimore Orioles have the most to prove in September?
The eyes of the Major League Baseball world will be on Baltimore in this final month as they continue an improbably successful season and add even more offensive talent in Jesus Aguilar and Gunnar Henderson. Aguilar will make his O’s debut tonight against Cleveland and Henderson had a successful debut last night with a home run, single, and several impressive defensive plays at third base.
Fellow Birds Watchers writers have recently written about both Aguilar and Henderson so I will not say too much about them. However, there are other players who have been in Baltimore for a while who have plenty to prove over this month who I will write about here.
