Ten reasons to look positively on the 2015 Baltimore Orioles season

6. Tyler Wilson showed he can pitch in the big leagues.

Tyler Wilson is not going to blow anyone away with velocity or raw stuff, but he is a fighter and a bulldog on the mound. When Wilson takes the ball, he is, most likely, going to give you a quality start. Unlike Mike Wright, the other rookie who got starts for the Orioles this year, Wilson has the ability to keep his composure in tight situations. The sinkerball pitcher allowed only one home run in 36.0 innings in the big leagues this year and pitched to a 3.50 ERA. As evidenced by his 3.3 strikeouts per nine, Wilson is a pitch-to-contact type, but in a hitter’s park like Camden Yards, having a pitcher who, unlike the rest of the staff, can generate groundballs with regularity is not necessarily a bad thing.
