Two Orioles Starters Work Together During Offseason To Develop New Pitches

Baltimore Orioles starters Dean Kremer and Kyle Bradish have been training together this offseason in Arizona.

This is the second straight offseason that Kremer and Bradish have trained together at Push Performance Gym, and they have been competing with each other in everything from dead lifts to jumping and running, according to Nathan Ruiz of the Baltimore Sun.

Their hard work paid off during the latter half of the 2022 season when they pitched back-to-back and were successful on the mound.

Bradish and Kremer finished the year strong, with a combined 3.01 ERA while pitching 12 times each. They have also been helping each other with their pitching, with Bradish adding a sweeping motion to his slider and improving his sinker, while Kremer developed a new pitch of his own.

Kremer is set to participate in the World Baseball Classic for Israel, but before he goes, he will pitch in at least one of the Orioles' early Grapefruit League games.

The right-hander is in the running for a spot in the middle of the Orioles' rotation, and his solid performance last season, with a 3.23 ERA and 1.25 WHIP across 125.1 innings, should give him an edge.

With their hard work and determination, Kremer and Bradish are hoping to push each other to secure roles in the Orioles' rotation together once again in 2023. Photo Credit: Mike Watters-USA TODAY Sports
