They improved on their 2015 record of 81–81, finishing 89–73. and advanced to the playoffs on the last day of the season, October 2, where they lost to the Blue Jays in the American League Wild Card Game 5–2 in 11 innings; this was the Orioles' third postseason appearance in five years.

Right fielder Mark Trumbo won the MLB and American League home run championships with 47; 2016 was the fourth consecutive year in which an Oriole won the homer crown following Chris Davis in 2013, Nelson Cruz in 2014 and Davis again in 2015. Closer Zach Britton recorded a perfect 47 saves in 47 opportunities; Britton set an all-time record of 43 consecutive appearances without allowing an earned run. Britton's 0.54 ERA was the lowest ever recorded by a pitcher with at least 50 innings pitched. As of 2021, this is not only the last Orioles playoff appearance, but also their last winning season.
