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.
Sisco isn't in the lineup for Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader against the Yankees. Sisco will get a breather after going 1-for-2 with one walk in Friday's matinee. Renato Nunez will rest his legs as the designated hitter.
Sisco is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mets, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. The Orioles wanted to give everyday shortstop Jose Iglesias some time out of the field for the day game after a night game, so he'll occupy the designated-hitter spot and bump SIsco to the bench as a result. With an .877 OPS over 78 plate appearances this season, the lefty-hitting Sisco looks primed to continue receiving at least semi-regular starts against right-handed pitching.
