Player Outlook
The Orioles' 101-win season and American League East title was possible in large part due to their collection of young talent starting to blossom. However, they also got some surprise contributions from veterans and Ryan O'Hearn is included among that group. The 30-year-old didn't make Baltimore's Opening Day roster but was up for good by early May and was often manager Brandon Hyde's preferred choice at first base versus righties while also seeing some time in the outfield and at designated hitter. O'Hearn put up an impressive 51.5 percent hard-hit rate while also cutting his strikeout rate down to a respectable 22.3 percent. He had posted a lowly .633 OPS over his last four seasons with the Royals, so O'Hearn's track record is working against him. He's earned an initial shot versus righties this season, but the leash will be short.

  • Orioles' Ryan O'Hearn: Smacks homer in win

    O'Hearn went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Mariners. O'Hearn had gone nine games without an extra-base hit, hitting .240 (6-for-25) with three RBI in that span. The 30-year-old broke his power drought with a third-inning homer off Mariners starter George Kirby to give the Orioles a 4-1 lead. O'Hearn is up to six homers, 15 RBI, 15 runs scored and a .288/.368/.510 slash line through 33 contests in a strong-side platoon role while seeing time at designated hitter and first base and in the corner outfield spots.

  • Orioles' Ryan O'Hearn: Smacks homer in win

    O'Hearn went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Friday's 3-0 win over the Reds. O'Hearn has hit safely in his last six games, going 8-for-19 (.421) in that span. The homer was his first since April 16, but the 30-year-old continues to demolish right-handed pitching. He's up to a .307/.381/.573 slash line with five homers, 11 RBI, 13 runs scored, three doubles and a triple over 84 plate appearances this season.

Overall, he's slashing .333/.400/.689 with four homers, 11 runs scored and six RBI through his first 14 games this season.

  • Orioles' Ryan O'Hearn: Swats solo homer

    O'Hearn went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and an additional RBI during Sunday's win over the Brewers. O'Hearn's hot start to 2024 continued Sunday, as he notched his 10th and 11th hits in 12 games played. He took Colin Rea yard in the third inning for a solo home run, marking his second long ball of the season -- both of which have come off right-handed pitching. With Baltimore expected to face three right-handed starters during a homestand against the Twins that starts Monday, O'Hearn should have plenty of opportunities to keep raking.

The 30-year-old had a surprise re-emergence with Baltimore in 2023, posting an .801 OPS with 14 homers in 112 games.
