Susac (wrist) was reinstated from the restricted list Tuesday. Susac fractured his wrist in late July and was presumed to be out for the season. He's now no longer on the disabled list or the restricted list, but nothing appears to have changed in regard to his availability going forward.
Susac (wrist) was placed on the restricted list Tuesday. Susac had already been ruled out for the season after fracturing his left wrist, so this move simply frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for Tuesday's starter, Josh Rogers, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Norfolk in a corresponding move. The backstop spent most of the season with the Tides, slashing .256/.405/.456 across 158 plate appearances.
Susac was diagnosed Sunday with a fractured left wrist, David Hall of The Virginian-Pilot reports. He was placed on the 7-day disabled list at Triple-A Norfolk with the injury, which will end his season. Susac suffered the injury after fouling a ball off himself Thursday. The backstop, who previously appeared in nine games with the Orioles, spent most of the 2018 campaign at Norfolk and slashed .256/.405/.456 across 158 plate appearances. He seems likely to be removed from the 40-man roster at some point in the coming months.
Susac (forearm) will likely require a DL stint after taking a foul ball off his arm Thursday, David Hall of the Virginian Pilot reports. The veteran catcher was spotted wearing a brace where the ball hit him and the club is still waiting word on whether the arm is broken. In any case, the Orioles' Triple-A affiliate will have to lean on Chance Sisco in the interim if Susac is sidelined for an extended period.
Susac was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday. Susac hit just .115/.115/.154 across 26 plate appearances during his time with the big club, so he'll report back to the Tides, where he'll serve as organizational catching depth. A corresponding roster move will be announced prior to Sunday's series finale against the Yankees.
