      Colby Rasmus: Done with baseball

      Colby Rasmus is "done and enjoying life," Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports.There hasn't been a formal retirement announcement, but this appears to be as close as we're likely to get from a player who elected to step away from the game in midseason in each of the last two years. Assuming he's done for good this time, Rasmus will end a 10-year career with a .241/.310/.436 slash line, 891 hits and 166 homers.

      Orioles' Colby Rasmus: Placed on restricted list

      Colby Rasmus was put on the restricted list Tuesday.Per Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun, manager Buck Showalter said that Rasmus told him he was ready to "discontinue his career" and step away from the team. By being placed on the restricted list, he will be removed from the active and 40-man roster. Around a similar time last season, Rasmus landed on the restricted list with Tampa Bay after informing the organization that he would be stepping away from the game. It remains to be seen whether Rasmus will be back with the Baltimore Orioles this year, as Showalter added that his reasons are private and will not be shared.

That presumably means he'll be available when the Baltimore Orioles head to Philadelphia for a two-game series that begins Tuesday.

      Orioles' Colby Rasmus: Out of lineup Tuesday

      Colby Rasmus is not starting Tuesday against the Mariners.Rasmus had started four of five games (all starts coming against righties) since returning from the disabled list with an injured hip, but will sit against the left-handed James Paxton on Tuesday. Righty Danny Valencia starts in right field for the first time this season in his place, having been forced to the outfield by the return of third baseman Tim Beckham (groin). The two players would make a natural platoon in right field going forward.

      Orioles' Colby Rasmus: Activated, starting Thursday

      Colby Rasmus (hip) was reinstated from the 60-day disabled list and will start Thursday's game against Washington in right field while batting sixth, Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports.Rasmus will re-enter the Baltimore Orioles' lineup after playing in 15 minor-league games since the beginning of June as he worked his way back from left hip flexor strain. The outfielder initially hit the disabled list in early April, so he's only appeared in a handful of big-league contests this season, but it's expected that he will take on a sizable role against right-handed pitching moving forward.

      Orioles' Colby Rasmus: Should rejoin club 'shortly'

      Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Sunday that Colby Rasmus (hip) will be an option for the big club "shortly," Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.While the skipper didn't give a target date for Rasmus' return from the 60-day disabled list, the outfielder's 20-day rehab window will end Wednesday, making an activation later this week a good possibility. After going hitless in his first four rehab appearances, Rasmus has caught fire at the plate of late for High-A Frederick, recording 11 hits in 29 at-bats over his last nine contests. Once he's formally reinstated, Rasmus will likely fill the strong side of a platoon in right field.

      Orioles' Colby Rasmus: Moves to 60-day disabled list

      Colby Rasmus (hip) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Monday.The move likely doesn't change Rasmus' timeline too much, as he's already been out more than 60 days. The shift frees up a roster spot for Zach Britton, who returned from the 60-day DL on Monday after recovering from Achilles surgery.
