Dylan Bundy of the Orioles has been one of the top pitchers in baseball the first month of the season, and he will try for his fifth victory when Baltimore takes on the Chicago White Sox on Saturday.
Boston Red Sox pitcher David Price could return to the rotation by the end of May, provided he continues to feel good in his recovery from a strained left elbow. He's got an 8.28 ERA and has allowed seven home runs in five starts. "It's been my Kryptonite", Covey said.
Those expecting Chris Beck to throw multiple shutout innings could have successfully first-guessed Renteria for his letting Covey start the fifth.
"It wouldn't be prudent for me at this particular point and this moment to make a decision like that or talk about contemplating that", the manager said.
The Orioles rattled Covey from the get-go, loading the bases on three straight singles and scoring one when Covey balked. Regardless, Mark Trumbo followed with a smash to the hole that Tim Anderson stopped but couldn't glove, and Trey Mancini hit an RBI double to give Baltimore an immediate 3-0 lead.
Machado made it 4-0 in the second with his fourth home run in the last six games.

Giannis finished with 19-8-4 and two assists and two blocks, but he could have easily had another 19 if his team had needed them. The Bucks took a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven first-round Eastern Conference playoff series.
Melky Cabrera walked and Abreu singled to put runners on first and third, and Avisail Garcia's RBI groundout allowed the first run to score.
BALTIMORE (AP) - Orioles left-hander Wade Miley was struck by two consecutive line drives in the first inning and removed from Baltimore's game against the Chicago White Sox. "I am the kind of guy who plays through a lot of stuff, (but this) was something I just couldn't do", he said. 2B Jonathan Schoop sat out the game after being hit on the right wrist with a pitch on Friday night.

Meanwhile, Baltimore is 6-2 in their last eight Sunday games, and 1-4 in their last five games versus a left-handed starter.
After convincing the trainers to stay in after getting hit the first time, Miley left after taking the second shot with what the Orioles called a wrist contusion.
