  • Travis Lakins: Heading to free agency

    Lakins elected free agency Wednesday, per Triple-A Norfolk's official site.

    Lakins was outrighted to Norfolk on Aug. 31. He appeared in six games with the Orioles in 2022 and had a 9.58 ERA and 1.94 WHIP across 10.1 innings. Lakins will likely be seeking a minor-league deal this offseason.

  • Orioles' Travis Lakins: Activated, outrighted to Triple-A

    The Orioles reinstated Lakins (elbow) from the 60-day injured list and outrighted him to Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.

    Lakins is healthy again after building up to three innings in his most recent rehab appearance for Norfolk on Sunday, but the Orioles didn't have a spot for him in their bullpen or on their 40-man roster. After clearing waivers following his activation, Lakins will stick around in the organization as relief depth at Norfolk. He turned in a 9.58 ERA and 1.94 WHIP in 10.1 innings with the big club before landing on the IL in late May with right elbow inflammation.

  • Orioles' Travis Lakins: Advances rehab to Triple-A

    Lakins (elbow) moved his rehab assignment to Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday and allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out a batter in his three-inning appearance for the affiliate.

    Lakins has already spent more than the minimum 60 days on the injured list, and based on his workload Sunday, he appears equipped to handle a multi-inning role out of the Baltimore bullpen. He could be a candidate to be activated Thursday, when the 26-man roster expands to 28.

  • Orioles' Travis Lakins: Rehab moves to Double-A

    Lakins (elbow) gave up three runs on a hit and two walks in one inning in his rehab debut Wednesday for Double-A Bowie.

    Lakins made his first two rehab appearances in the Florida Complex League, allowing a run on a hit and a walk across 1.2 innings. He'll likely need a few more rehab outings as he continues to work his way back from right elbow inflammation, which has kept him out since mid-May.

  • Orioles' Travis Lakins: Rehab assignment on tap

    Lakins (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment at the Orioles' rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate Saturday, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Lakins has been sidelined with right elbow inflammation since May 20, and he suffered a setback in his recovery shortly before the All-Star break. However, he's trending in the right direction once again and will return to game action in the minors this weekend. The right-hander will likely require multiple rehab appearances prior to rejoining the Orioles, but he should be in the mix to return in late August or early September.

  • Orioles' Travis Lakins: Suffers setback in recovery

    Lakins (elbow) recently had a setback in his recovery process, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.

    Lakins has been on the injured list with right elbow inflammation since May 20, and he was shifted to the 60-day IL last weekend. The right-hander hadn't started a minor-league rehab assignment prior to his setback, and it's not yet clear when he'll be able to return to game action.

  • Orioles' Travis Lakins: Goes to 60-day IL

    The Orioles transferred Lakins (elbow) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Sunday.

    Lakins has been on the injured list since May 20 and wasn't on track to return before the All-Star break, so the Orioles opted to move him to the 60-day IL in order to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for right-handed reliever Rico Garcia. Though he'll be eligible to return immediately after the All-Star break, Lakins has yet to begin a minor-league rehab assignment, so his absence could end up stretching into August.

  • Orioles' Travis Lakins: Placed on injured list

    Lakins was placed on the 15-day injured list with right elbow inflammation Friday, retroactive to May 12, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.

    Lakins was sent down Thursday, but he'll have his option reversed after being placed on the injured list. He'll be sidelined until at least late May, but it's not yet clear whether he'll be forced to spend more than the minimum of 15 days on the IL.

  • Orioles' Travis Lakins: Sent down Thursday

    Lakins was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday.

    Lakins was called up by Baltimore on Tuesday, and he allowed two runs on two hits and two walks while striking out two over two innings of relief during Wednesday's loss to the Cardinals. The right-hander has a 9.58 ERA in 10.1 innings over six major-league appearances this year and will head back to the minors after Denyi Reyes' contract was selected Thursday.

  • Orioles' Travis Lakins: Back with big club

    The Orioles recalled Lakins from Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday.

    Lakins never reported to Norfolk after he was optioned to the affiliate following Sunday's doubleheader, as he was instead included on the Orioles' taxi squad ahead of their three-game series in St. Louis. He'll end up rejoining the 26-man active roster after fellow reliever Jorge Lopez (personal) was placed on the bereavement list. Lopez is expected to miss at least the next three games, but if he rejoins the Orioles this weekend in Detroit, Lakins will be the logical candidate to move back off the active roster.

  • Orioles' Travis Lakins: Heads back to minors

    Lakins was returned to Triple-A Norfolk following Sunday's doubleheader against the Royals, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Lakins served as the 27th man during Sunday's twin bill, but he didn't appear in either game. The right-hander has posted a 9.72 ERA and 1.92 WHIP in 8.1 innings over five relief appearances in the majors this year, and he'll attempt to sort things out in Norfolk.

  • Orioles' Travis Lakins: Up for doubleheader

    The Orioles recalled Lakins from Triple-A Norfolk ahead of Sunday's doubleheader with the Royals.

    Lakins will provide the Orioles with an extra arm out of the bullpen for the twin bill, but he'll likely be bound for Norfolk at the conclusion of the doubleheader. The right-hander has previously made five appearances for Baltimore this season, covering 8.1 innings while giving up nine earned runs on 12 hits and four walks.

  • Orioles' Travis Lakins: Optioned off roster

    Lakins was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Friday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Lakins struggled through five relief appearances during his time on the team, giving up nine runs on 12 hits and four walks in 8.1 innings of work. His roster spot will be taken by Logan Allen, who was claimed off waivers from Cleveland.

  • Orioles' Travis Lakins: Works three innings

    Lakins allowed a run on one hit and a walk with two strikeouts in three innings in Sunday's 7-6 loss to the Angels.

    Chris Ellis (shoulder) exited his start with the bases loaded before he could record an out. Lakins was brought into the game on fairly short notice, and he immediately gave up a grand slam to Jo Adell before throwing three hitless innings after that. The Orioles' rotation is already in shambles with John Means (elbow) out for the year and Dean Kremer (oblique) hurt early on. Lakins hasn't regularly worked as a starter in the minors since 2017, but he could be an option to either open games or serve as a piggyback reliever. The right-hander is 0-1 with five runs allowed in five innings across three appearances this season.

  • Orioles' Travis Lakins: Takes loss in season debut

    Lakins (0-1) allowed four runs on five hits and a walk in one inning, taking the loss versus the Yankees on Saturday.

    Lakins entered the game after a weather delay, and the Yankees promptly pummeled him. Josh Donaldson dealt the biggest blow with a two-run home run. That's not a great season debut for Lakins, who struggled to a 5.79 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 24:17 K:BB in 28 innings last year. He's been a reliever for most of his time at the upper levels of the minors, so he'll probably be limited to a multi-inning role while with the Orioles this season.

  • Orioles' Travis Lakins: Contract selected by Baltimore

    Lakins' contract was selected by the Orioles on Friday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Lakins failed to win a spot on Baltimore's Opening Day roster this year, but he'll now join the major-league club after John Means (elbow) was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday. Lakins made 24 appearances (one start) in the majors last year and posted a 5.79 ERA and 1.43 WHIP in 28 innings.

  • Orioles' Travis Lakins: Reassigned to minor-league camp

    Lakins was reassigned to minor-league camp Wednesday, Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports.

    Lakins was sidelined for the second half of the 2021 campaign due to an elbow injury, but he was fully healthy for spring training this year. He posted a 3.68 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 7.1 innings across his four relief appearances in the Grapefruit League but will be forced to start the regular season at Triple-A Norfolk.

  • Orioles' Travis Lakins: Healthy for spring camp

    Lakins (elbow) threw two innings in a simulated game Wednesday and is scheduled to cover two more frames Friday in the Orioles' exhibition opener versus the Blue Jays, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Lakins reported to spring training at full strength after he was sidelined from late June onward last season following surgery to address an olecranon stress fracture in his right elbow. The 27-year-old right-hander is attending camp as a non-roster invitee and appears to be getting the chance to compete for a rotation spot with the big club, but he should still be viewed as a long shot to make the Opening Day roster.

  • Orioles' Travis Lakins: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Lakins (elbow) was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Lakins missed the second half of the 2021 campaign after he underwent elbow surgery, and he'll lose his spot on the 40-man roster heading into the offseason. The right-hander has a chance to return in time for spring training in 2022 after he posted a 5.79 ERA and 1.43 WHIP in 28 innings across 24 appearances (one start) this season.

  • Orioles' Travis Lakins: Undergoes succesful elbow surgery

    Lakins underwent successful surgery to fix a recurrent olecranon stress fracture in his right elbow Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Lakins was placed on the 10-day injured list June 30 and was later transferred to the 60-day IL on July 3. The 27-year-old will likely miss the remainder of the season following the surgery, but manager Brandon Hyde said Tuesday that the right-hander could "possibly" be ready for spring training in 2022, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports. Lakins posted a 5.79 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 24:17 K:BB across 24 appearances (one start) prior to suffering the injury.
