Stewart will start in left field and lead off Sunday against the Rays, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports. With Cedric Mullins getting a day off for rest, Stewart will replace him in the Baltimore outfield and atop the lineup. Austin Hays' recent return from the injured list appears to have cost Stewart a spot in the Orioles' everyday outfield, which typically includes Mullins and Anthony Santander.
Stewart went 3-for-3 with a walk, an RBI single and two runs scored in Sunday's 18-5 blowout win over Cleveland. Baltimore's offense racked up an impressive 21 hits and three walks, with both Stewart and Cedric Mullins reaching base four or more times. Stewart has picked up multiple hits in three of his last four games. He's still slashing a poor .229/.344/.405 with six home runs, 19 RBI and 19 runs scored across 154 plate appearances overall.
Stewart went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run, two runs scored and a walk Wednesday against the Twins. Stewart took Randy Dobnak yard in the fifth inning to record his sixth home run of the season. He's taken advantage of Austin Hays' (hamstring) absence by going yard four times in nine starts since May 24, though he's also only hitting .200 across 30 at-bats in that same span. Stewart should continue to see regular playing time so long as Hays is sidelined and could be a decent source of short-term power as a result.
Stewart went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the White Sox. Stewart put Baltimore on the board with a solo shot off White Sox starter Lucas Giolito in the third inning. Three of Stewart's five homers this year have come in his last eight games. The outfielder is slashing just .198/.321/.360 with 14 RBI and 15 runs scored across 131 plate appearances this year. He's likely to see regular playing time in the corner outfield spots while Austin Hays (hamstring) remains on the injured list.
Stewart will start in right field and bat fifth Wednesday against the Twins, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. Stewart is in the lineup for a third straight game, and he'll likely be locked into at least a strong-side platoon role in the outfield for the time being after the Orioles moved Austin Hays (hamstring) to the 10-day injured list Wednesday. Manager Brandon Hyde suggested that Hays could only miss the minimum amount of time, so Stewart's run of near-everyday playing time could prove to be short-lived.
