Orioles' Joey Krehbiel: Opening year at Triple-A
The Orioles optioned Krehbiel to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday.
Krehbiel narrowly missed out on making the Orioles' Opening Day roster, with Baltimore instead opting to go with Logan Gillaspie and Mike Baumann as its final two bullpen arms. The 30-year-old right-hander previously appeared in 56 games with the big club in 2022, logging a 3.90 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 45:18 K:BB in 57.2 innings while collecting five wins, 10 holds and one save....

Orioles' Joey Krehbiel: Gets back on track
Krehbiel has pitched 4.2 scoreless innings over his last five Grapefruit League outings.
Krehbiel also has a 6:1 K:BB in that span. The right-hander was a solid part of the Orioles' strong bullpen last season, but he was torched for eight runs over his first two appearances this spring. Now that he's back on track, he should remain in contention for the Opening Day roster, though the Orioles still have a lot of trimming to do to their pitching staff.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Joey Krehbiel: Shaky early in spring
Krehbiel has given up eight runs over 1.2 innings across his first two Grapefruit League appearances.
Krehbiel's place in the Orioles' bullpen can't be considered safe, as the team has a high number of candidates for the rotation that could begin the year as relievers. The shaky start to the spring is a concern, but Krehbiel did fairly well in a setup role last season with a 3.90 GAA, 1.23 WHIP, five wins, one save and 10 holds across 57.2 innings. With Dillon Tate (elbow) out for the first month of the season, that could give Krehbiel a chance to make the roster anyway if he can improve over the rest of spring training.... See More ...

Orioles' Joey Krehbiel: Handed loss versus Boston
Krehbiel (5-5) took the loss Tuesday versus the Red Sox, allowing two runs on two hits and two walks over two-thirds of an inning.
Krehbiel was charged with a run in the third inning as the Red Sox put together a six-run rally. The Orioles tied the game with five runs of their own in the fourth, but Krehbiel was charged with a run as the Red Sox shot back in the same frame and took the lead for good. An effective reliever for much of the season, the 29-year-old right-hander has hit a rough stretch of late. He's allowed nine runs on 10 hits and three walks over his last 5.2 innings spanning six appearances. Krehbiel is at a 3.90 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 45:18 K:BB through 57.2 innings overall, and he's added a save and 10 holds.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Joey Krehbiel: Demoted after rough outing
The Orioles optioned Krehbiel to Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday.
With Baltimore needing relievers to cover 12.2 innings over the first two games of its series in Boston, the club will bring aboard a pair of fresh arms for the bullpen in Keegan Akin and Beau Sulser while sending out Krehbiel and Jake Reed. Krehbiel was handed the loss Tuesday after failing to retire a batter while getting charged with two earned runs on two hits and two walks.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Joey Krehbiel: Collects win Sunday
Krehbiel (5-4) pitched a perfect inning and struck out one to earn the win Sunday over the Blue Jays.
Krehbiel worked the eighth inning and ended up in line for the win when the Orioles rallied ahead in the ninth. Through six outings spanning 6.1 innings in September, Krehbiel has given up two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out seven. The 29-year-old righty has maintained a 3.00 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 43:15 K:BB while adding a save and 10 holds through 54 innings this year. He remains in a mid-leverage role, though he's unlikely to be in the mix for ancillary save chances when regular closer Felix Bautista is unavailable.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Joey Krehbiel: Takes fourth loss
Krehbiel (4-4) allowed two runs on two hits in one-third of an inning, taking the loss Wednesday versus the Blue Jays.
Austin Voth pitched six innings of two-hit ball as the starter, but Krehbiel was the first of a trio of relievers that made the seventh frame a mess. He allowed two of the three batters he faced to get aboard, and Cionel Perez couldn't stop the bleeding after that. Since the All-Star break, Krehbiel has a 5.19 ERA, 1.73 WHIP and two holds through nine appearances. He's at a 2.81 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 34:14 K:BB, nine holds and a save through 41.2 innings overall, but he's not in contention for late-inning usage on a regular basis.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Joey Krehbiel: Notches first career save
Krehbiel earned a save against the Rays on Saturday, retiring the only batter he faced in the 11th inning.
Regular closer Jorge Lopez covered the ninth and 10th innings, so the Orioles had to turn elsewhere after they took a two-run lead in the top of the 11th. Cionel Perez opened the frame and worked two outs around a walk, and Krehbiel was then brought in to face Luke Raley. The reliever retired Raley on five pitches to secure the first save of his big-league career. Krehbiel isn't likely to earn many more save chances given Lopez's effectiveness this season, but the former has been an important part of Baltimore's bullpen with a 2.25 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 27:10 K:BB over 32 innings. He has seven holds and four wins to go along with the one save.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Joey Krehbiel: Escapes jam, earns win
Krehbiel (4-3) earned the extra-inning win Tuesday. He allowed a hit and a walk and struck out one in a scoreless inning versus the Rangers.
Krehbiel allowed a single and a walk to load the bases in the with one out in the 10th inning, but he escaped the jam and became the winning pitcher when Cedric Mullins hit a walkoff double. This was Krehbiel's fifth outing since returning from a shoulder injury, and he's allowed one run, two hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in six innings in that span. The reliever has a steady 2.48 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 23:10 K:BB with six holds in 29 innings overall.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Joey Krehbiel: Earns win Friday
Krehbiel (3-3) threw 2.1 perfect innings and struck out three to earn the win Friday over the White Sox.
Krehbiel followed starter Austin Voth, who lasted three innings. Krehbiel was at the front end of six perfect relief innings from the Orioles' bullpen. This was the right-hander's second appearance since he was activated from the injured list, and he's not allowed a baserunner in three innings in that span. For the season, he has a 2.42 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 20:8 K:BB in 26 innings. He's added five holds and could see some mid-to-high-leverage work going forward.... See More ... See Less
