The Orioles placed Tate on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a left hamstring strain. Tate has worked in middle relief for Baltimore this season, picking up two holds while posting a 3.46 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 6:2 K:BB in 13 innings over 11 appearances. Rather than replacing Tate on the active roster with another reliever, Baltimore elected to recall outfielder Ryan McKenna from Triple-A Norfolk in a corresponding move.
Tate pitched 2.2 innings Tuesday, allowing one run on three hits with one strikeout versus the Yankees. Tate took over in a long-relief assignment after starter Bruce Zimmermann was tagged for four runs in 3.2 innings. The 26-year-old Tate only gave up a solo home run to Giancarlo Stanton in the seventh inning. Through 10 innings, Tate has a 2.70 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and four strikeouts. He's picked up two holds and a loss in nine outings -- the right-hander has mostly worked in a low-leverage role.
Tate pitched two perfect innings with no strikeouts in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Athletics. After Wade LeBlanc and Tyler Wells combined to give up seven runs in the first four innings, the Orioles didn't have much of a chance at a win. Tate at least made sure it didn't get worse, as he pitched the seventh and eighth innings cleanly. He threw 12 of his 19 pitches for strikes. The 26-year-old right-hander has a 2.45 ERA, 0.82 WHIP and 3:2 K:BB across 7.1 innings this season. He's picked up a pair of holds and one loss in eight outings.
Tate (0-1) allowed one earned run on two walks while recording only one out in the 10th inning, taking the loss to the Red Sox on Saturday. Tate allowed the winning run to score on a wild pitch in the 10th inning. The 26-year-old has allowed an earned run in each of his last two starts. The Orioles don't have much bullpen depth, so Tate continues to have a high-leverage role despite not being a closing option. He has a 5.40 ERA in 3.1 innings.
Tate pitched a perfect eighth inning with one strikeout to earn a hold in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Red Sox Tate needed only 11 pitches to retire the side in the bottom of the eighth. The 2015 first-round pick was solid in his second season, posting a 3.24 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and two holds across 16.2 innings in 2020. He only made 12 appearances -- the right-hander could be a versatile option in the Orioles' bullpen, capable of working in both long-relief and higher-leverage assignments. Tate isn't expected to be in the closer conversation.
