Orioles' Anthony Santander: Pops fourth homer
Santander went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Tigers.
He went back-to-back with Trey Mancini in the eighth inning to spoil Detroit's combined shutout bid, but it was all the offense Baltimore could muster. The blast snapped a 14-game power drought for Santander, and on the season he's batting .241 with four homers and 14 RBI through 33 contests, although he's compensated for that decline in production with a .376 OBP and a 14.3 percent walk rate that's more than double his prior career high....

Orioles' Anthony Santander: Drives in two Thursday
Santander went 1-for-3 with a two-run single in Thursday's 4-4 tie versus the Pirates.
Santander has gone 4-for-19 with four RBI, a home run and two doubles in seven Grapefruit League games. The outfielder is expected to start the season as the primary right fielder, though the switch hitter could lose some at-bats to southpaws with Trey Mancini getting a look in right field as well. Santander disappointed a bit last season, posting a .241/.286/.433 slash line with 18 homers, 50 RBI, 54 runs scored and a stolen base. He also struck out 23.1 percent last year, compared to 15.2 percent in 2020, so he'll need to cut down on the whiffs to maintain a near-everyday role.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Anthony Santander: Avoids arbiter
Santander (knee) and the Orioles agreed to a one-year, $3.15 million contract Tuesday, avoiding arbitration, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
Santander returned to being a below-average hitter in 2021, something that's been true in every season except the shortened 2020 campaign. His .241/.286/.433 slash line was good for just a 92 wRC+. The Orioles clearly felt he still has the potential to become something more, so they'll hope to see something closer to the .261/.315/.575 line he managed in 37 games in 2020.... See More ...

Santander suffered the injury Sunday against the Rangers. With less than a week left to play, the transaction ends the outfielder's season. It was largely a disappointing one for Santander, who posted a mediocre .719 OPS after seemingly breaking out with an .890 mark in last year's shortened season. Tyler Nevin was recalled to take his place on the roster, while Ryan McKenna could be set for an increased role in the final few games of the campaign.... See More ... See Less
