Tsuyoshi WadaI can’t be disappointed in Scott Feldman‘s start on Monday against the Diamondbacks. I can however be disappointed in everything else about that game.

Well, except for Chris Davis.

The O’s fifth starter did was a fifth starter is supposed to do — 5.1 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 8 K.

What’s not to like?

Despite the Orioles rotation’s 4.62 combined ERA, 27th in the big leagues, their starting has pitched to a 3.93 mark over their last 30 days. I’ll take that.

Meanwhile, down on the farm, Tsuyoshi Wada continues to make his case for a start in the big leagues. On Monday the lefty surrendered one run on one hit over 7 innings pitched. Wada is 1-0 with a 0.75 ERA in 2 starts in August and 2-0 with a 1.82 ERA in five starts since the All-Star break.

He hasn’t surrendered more than three earned runs since July 11.

You’ve got to think that at some point Wada will get a shot in the big leagues. It’s certainly nice to see a starting thriving in the International League should the O’s need help down the stretch.
