  • Orioles' Colton Cowser: Slugs first two career homers

    Cowser went 3-for-5 with two home runs, a double and four total RBI in a 9-4 extra-inning win against the Red Sox on Thursday.

    Cowser belted a solo shot in the fifth inning to give the Orioles their first run, and he added a big three-run blast in the 10th to break open the contest en route to a Baltimore victory. The long balls were the first of Cowser's major-league career, and they showcased his power potential after he went deep 17 times in 399 plate appearances in Triple-A last year. The 24-year-old has started 2024 in fine form, slashing .458/.462/.917 with 11 RBI, four runs and a stolen base through 11 contests.

  • Orioles' Colton Cowser: One steal, two RBI in win

    Cowser went 1-for-4 with two RBI, a walk, one stolen base and one run scored in Wednesday's 7-5 win over the Red Sox.

    Cowser is gaining traction as the primary starter in left field with Austin Hays off to an ice-cold start in 2024. Cowser has hit safely in five of the last six games, going 7-for-16 (.438) with six RBI in that span. He crushed the competition in Grapefruit League play and has taken advantage of his early opportunity in the regular season. For now, it's a platoon situation between Cowser and Hays, with the former on the strong side of it.

  • Orioles' Colton Cowser: Drives in four

    Cowser went 2-for-4 with two doubles and four RBI in Tuesday's 7-1 win over the Red Sox.

    Cowser drove in the Orioles' first three runs Tuesday, driving in Cedric Mullins with a two-out double in the second inning before adding two more RBI with a second two-bagger in the fourth. Cowser would add a fifth RBI with a sacrifice fly in the eighth. The 24-year-old outfielder has started over Austin Hays in three of Baltimore's last four games against right-handed pitching. Cowser's certainly run with the opportunity, going 7-for-15 with four doubles to start the year. After a rough showing in his first big-league stint last season, Cowser is starting to show why he was regarded as one of the top prospects in a loaded Orioles system.

  • Orioles' Colton Cowser: Drives in lone run in loss

    Cowser went 2-for-3 with an RBI double in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Royals.

    Cowser made his first start of the season and was the only Oriole with multiple hits in the contest. He's 3-for-6 with two doubles over five games, as he's often come into games off the bench so far. Austin Hays is still the starter in left field, but Cowser could push for more playing time if he continues to succeed in his currently limited role.

  • Orioles' Colton Cowser: Making first start of 2024

    Cowser is starting in left field and batting eighth Tuesday against the Royals, Roch Kubatko of reports.

    Cowser went 1-for-3 while coming off the bench in the first four games of the season, but he'll receive his first start of the young campaign. Austin Hays has worked as Baltimore's primary left fielder thus far but is on the bench Tuesday.

  • Orioles' Colton Cowser: Confirmed for Opening Day roster

    Cowser was informed Sunday that he made the Orioles' Opening Day roster, Jake Rill of reports.

    The writing was on the wall when Baltimore sent down Heston Kjerstad and Kyle Stowers on Friday, and Cowser's place on the big club has now been confirmed. Cowser hit just .115 over 26 games in his first taste of the big leagues last season, but he put on a show during spring training with a 1.174 OPS in 49 plate appearances. The 24-year-old isn't likely to open the campaign with a regular spot in the lineup, but he could certainly hit his way into more playing time.

  • Orioles' Colton Cowser: Likely to make roster

    Cowser is expected to make the Orioles' major-league roster after the team sent down Heston Kjerstad and Kyle Stowers on Friday, Jake Rill of reports.

    Cowser certainly earned the spot, slashing .325/.449/.725 through 16 Grapefruit League games. Even with that impressive sample, Cowser likely doesn't have a clear path to everyday at-bats to begin the season. He figures to be an extra outfielder, though if he can carry his spring hitting into the regular season, he could eventually force his way into a strong-side platoon job.

  • Orioles' Colton Cowser: Frontrunner to land roster spot?

    Cowser is "an (early) frontrunner" to make the Orioles' Opening Day roster, Andy Kostka of The Baltimore Banner said in an interview on 105.7 The Fan on Monday.

    Cowser made some swing changes in order to be better against fastballs and has wowed so far this spring in going 4-for-11 with three home runs and three walks. The Orioles' starting outfield already appears set, but Cowser could play his way into being an active fourth outfielder. He had just a .434 OPS and a 28.6 percent strikeout rate over 77 plate appearances in the majors last season but collected a .937 OPS with 17 homers at Triple-A Norfolk.

  • Orioles' Colton Cowser: Retools swing

    Cowser retooled his swing in the offseason after a difficult 2023, Jon Meoli of reports.

    That work has been noticed, drawing praise from manager Brandon Hyde early in spring training. Over his first five Grapefruit League games, Cowser has gone 3-for-8 with two home runs and five RBI. Cowser still has work to do to win a roster spot, but the early results are encouraging. He hit just .115 with a .434 OPS and a 28.6 percent strikeout rate over 77 plate appearances in the majors last year. Cowser is among a group of three to five players competing for a maximum of two bench spots in the Orioles' outfield.
