Orioles' Richie Martin: Outrighted to Triple-A
Martin was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday.
Martin spent most of 2021 injured at Triple-A, but he finished the season in the majors and hit .235/.269/.286 in 37 games. He'll need a strong performance in spring training to have a chance of cracking the Opening Day roster.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Richie Martin: Ends year on modest hit streak
Martin went 3-for-10 with a run scored and four strikeouts over the last three games of the season.
The shortstop saw fairly regular playing time after Ramon Urias (groin) was shut down for the year. It wasn't a very convincing final audition form Martin, who went 13-for-54 (.241) across his last 22 games of the season while splitting time with Pat Valaika at shortstop. For the season, Martin slashed .235/.269/.286 with one home run, eight RBI, nine runs scored and two doubles through 105 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Richie Martin: Helping to fill in for Urias
Martin will start at shortstop and bat seventh Monday against the Phillies, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Martin has seen an uptick in playing time of late while Ramon Urias has managed a sore right leg. He'll stick in the lineup for the fourth time in five games.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Richie Martin: Called up by Baltimore
Martin was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday.
Martin was sent to the minors Aug. 23, and he's appeared in 14 games in Norfolk since then. The 26-year-old hit .245 with a home run, a triple, four doubles, nine runs, four RBI and a stolen base during his time with the minor-league club, and he'll have the chance to carve out playing time in the majors while Ramon Urias (upper leg) remains sidelined....

Orioles' Richie Martin: Sent down to Triple-A
The Orioles optioned Martin to Triple-A Norfolk on Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
After dropping its 18th straight game Sunday, Baltimore has elected to shake up its infield in effort to end the losing streak. The Orioles designated third baseman Maikel Franco for assignment and optioned Martin, who had started the last five games at shortstop while Ramon Urias had been seeing more frequent action at the hot corner in place of the struggling Franco. Though Martin came through with a pair of base hits in Sunday's 3-1 loss to Atlanta, the 26-year-old has struggled mightily since returning from the 60-day injured list Aug. 3, slashing .227/.271/.318 in 15 games....

Orioles' Richie Martin: Gets fifth straight start
Martin will start at shortstop and bat ninth Sunday against Atlanta.
Martin will pick up his fifth consecutive start at shortstop, despite producing only one hit in 11 at-bats over his previous four contests. The 26-year-old isn't locked in as everyday player just yet, but with the Orioles giving the struggling Maikel Franco more frequent days off, Martin has emerged as a part-time player in the Baltimore infield alongside mainstays Ryan Mountcastle, Ramon Urias and Jorge Mateo....

Orioles' Richie Martin: Handling semi-regular role
Martin will start at shortstop and bat ninth Wednesday at Tampa Bay.
Though Martin is getting his 10th start in 13 games, he still appears to be behind Ramon Urias and Jorge Mateo for primary duties at either second base or shortstop. The ability of Mateo and Urias to play additional spots in the infield and/or outfield should at least continue to free up semi-regular work for Martin, so long as he hits well enough to warrant the playing time. Through his first 10 games with the big club this season, Martin is slashing .233/.294/.367 with one home run, four RBI and four runs.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Richie Martin: Launches first homer
Martin went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 8-1 loss to Boston.
The 26-year-old didn't get much on his first homer of the year, which traveled an estimated 320 feet around Fenway Park's Pesky Pole. Hardly known for his power -- he has seven homers in 128 career big-league games -- Martin accounted for Baltimore's only run. He's gone just 5-for-23 (.217) in eight contests since coming off the IL, although he could get a longer look at shortstop if Ramon Urias (upper leg) continues to miss time.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Richie Martin: Filling in for sore Urias
Martin will start at shortstop and bat eighth Sunday against the Rays.
Martin will draw his fourth straight start Sunday while Ramon Urias remains day-to-day with right upper leg soreness. Assuming Urias' leg issue doesn't force him to the injured list, he should soon take back everyday duties at shortstop, forcing Martin to jockey for playing time at second base with Jorge Mateo. Since being reinstated from the 60-day IL on Monday, Martin has gone 1-for-9 with a double, a walk and two RBI across four games with Baltimore.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Richie Martin: Reinstated from 60-day IL
Martin (wrist) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Monday.
Martin missed the entire 2020 campaign after he underwent wrist surgery in July, and he suffered another wrist injury in mid-May that kept him sidelined for just over two months. However, the 26-year-old recently appeared in five rehab games and went 4-for-16 with a home run, a double, six runs, four stolen bases and two RBI. He'll rejoin the major-league roster as an option in the middle infield after Domingo Leyba was sent down as part of a move Monday.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Richie Martin: Progressing in rehab assignment
Martin (wrist) has joined Double-A Bowie to continue his rehab assignment, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Martin appeared in just one game with the Orioles' rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate and went 0-for-1 with two runs, two stolen bases, a walk and a strikeout. The 26-year-old will likely require several more rehab games since he's been sidelined for over two months due to a fractured left wrist, but it's encouraging to see him progress to Double-A....

Orioles' Richie Martin: Starts up rehab assignment
The Orioles assigned Martin (wrist) to their rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate Tuesday to begin a rehab program.
Martin will likely make his FCL debut later this week, marking his first game action since May 18. The 26-year-old infielder has missed more than two months of action with a fractured left wrist, so he'll likely be in store for an extended rehab assignment before the Orioles reinstate him from the 60-day injured list....

Orioles' Richie Martin: Starts hitting progression
Martin (wrist) began his hitting progression Friday, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Martin has been sidelined since mid-May by a non-displaced fracture in his left wrist, so Friday marks a significant step forward in his rehab work. The 26-year-old is likely weeks away, if not longer, from returning from the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Richie Martin: Shifts to 60-day injured list
Martin (wrist) was moved to the 60-day injured list Monday.
This move comes as no surprise, with Martin suffering a left wrist fracture in mid-May. The expected recovery time for the infielder is at least two months, so he isn't expected to return until mid-July at the absolute earliest.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Richie Martin: Out at least two months
Orioles general manager Mike Elias said Wednesday that Martin will miss 8-to-12 weeks after being diagnosed with a non-displaced left wrist fracture, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
While playing center field Tuesday for Triple-A Norfolk, Martin sustained the wrist injury when he was flagging down a fly ball at the outfield wall. Elias didn't reveal whether Martin would need surgery for the wrist, but the 26-year-old will end up missing a large chunk of the 2021 season as a result of the injury. Martin, who was moved to the 7-day IL on Wednesday, had been hitting .170 with four stolen bases in 56 plate appearances through his first 13 games with Norfolk.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Richie Martin: Managing wrist injury
Martin was removed from Tuesday's game for Triple-A Norfolk with left wrist pain, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
The 26-year-old suffered the injury when he collided with the wall while chasing down a fly ball to deep center field. Martin is traditionally a shortstop but is apparently working on his positional versatility in the minors. He's dealt with issues in both wrists over the past few years, so it's possible he aggravated an old injury Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Richie Martin: Goes on 7-day IL
Triple-A Norfolk placed Martin (wrist) on the 7-day injured list Wednesday, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Martin's move to the IL comes after he exited Tuesday's game with a left wrist injury, which he sustained while playing center field. Norfolk summoned Zach Jarrett from Double-A Bowie to replace Martin on the active roster.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Richie Martin: Headed to Triple-A
Martin was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Friday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.
Martin was brought along slowly this spring after he underwent offseason hand surgery, and he'll require some time in the minors to begin the regular season. The 26-year-old missed the entire 2020 season due to a wrist injury but appeared in 120 major-league games in 2019 and could return to the big leagues at some point in 2021.... See More ... See Less

Martin (hand) will play second base during Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Twins, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Martin appeared in a "B" game Friday and will advance to Grapefruit League action Sunday. The 26-year-old has been brought along slowly after he underwent hand surgery during the offseason, and it's not yet clear whether he'll be available for the Orioles to begin the regular season....

Orioles' Richie Martin: Plays on back field
Martin (hand) played in a B game Friday but could make his Grapefruit League debut this weekend, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Martin continues to ramp up slowly as he makes his way back from offseason hand surgery. There was some thought that he'd play in a Grapefruit League game Friday, but he's apparently at least a day or two behind that schedule.... See More ... See Less
