The Baltimore Orioles have been through a lot over the past decade.
In 2012, they emerged as a surprise postseason contender and reached the postseason three times in a five-year span.
They fell on hard times in 2017 and didn’t have another winning season until 2022.
But since then, the Orioles have seemingly found their way back to prominence again.
Last season, they dusted themselves off after a 110-loss campaign in 2021, finishing 83-79, just three games back of the Tampa Bay Rays for the third and final AL Wild Card spot.
In 2023, things are looking even better.
On Twitter, MLB Now posted a graphic featuring the team’s records since 2019 and showing just how far they have come.

The Orioles came into the 2022 season with little to no expectations after having lost 110 games in 2021.
But they re-emerged as a surprise playoff contender.
This season, they have already won 35 games and own the third-best record in all of baseball behind the Rays and Texas Rangers.
Stars such as Cedric Mullins, Gunnar Henderson, Adley Rutschman, Ryan Mountcastle, Anthony Santander, Austin Hays, and Adam Frazier have helped guide them back to prominence since their fall from grace in 2017.
The team also has some exciting prospects in the pipeline, particularly two pitchers, those being DL Hall and Grayson Rodriguez.
There is a lot to be excited about for fans of the Orioles, who have waited several years since the team last reached the postseason.
Baltimore looks poised to return to October this year and take a shot at a World Series title.NEXT: Orioles Officially Shake Up Outfield With Surprise Addition
