Sisco went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Athletics. Sisco got the start at catcher with Pedro Severino at designated hitter Saturday. The 26-year-old Sisco put up his first multi-hit game of the year, and he knocked in Severino with an RBI double in the second inning to get the Orioles on the board. Sisco has gone just 4-for-28 (.185) with two RBI and a run scored in nine games this season.
Sisco is slashing just .150/.150/.150 across 20 plate appearances in 2021. Sisco has played in only seven of the Orioles' 16 games so far. He's provided one RBI, one run scored, three singles and 10 strikeouts. As the primary backup to Pedro Severino at catcher, Sisco shouldn't be expected to get a lot of playing time.
Sisco will be included on the Orioles' Opening Day roster, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports. Just like the past two seasons, Sisco is expected to serve as the top backup to No. 1 catcher Pedro Severino in 2021. Sisco boasts a decent amount of pop and has shown the ability to draw walks at high rates throughout his time in the big leagues, but his poor defense will likely make it tough for him to leapfrog Severino on the depth chart.
Sisco isn't in Thursday's lineup against the Yankees. Sisco will take a seat once again as the Orioles continue to rotate players in the designated hitter role. Renato Nunez will rest his legs as the DH on Thursday with Pat Valaika starting at first base.
Sisco isn't in Tuesday's lineup against the Mets. Sisco has seen decent playing time as the designated hitter this season, but he'll take a seat for the fourth time in the last six games. Renato Nunez (hamstring) will return to the lineup as the designated hitter.
