  • Orioles' Gunnar Henderson: To take reps at third and short

    Henderson told Jake Rill of on Friday that he plans to take reps at both third base and shortstop during spring training.

    Henderson played more shortstop than third base in the minors before being used more at the hot corner during his late-season stint with the Orioles. The consensus among scouts seems to be that he could handle shortstop but would be better at third base. He might play both positions during the season and also perhaps some second base, but where Henderson sees the most action could ultimately be determined by the performance of the team's alternatives, Jorge Mateo at shortstop and Ramon Urias at third base.

  • Orioles' Gunnar Henderson: Takes seat for Game 2

    Henderson is out of the lineup for the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Blue Jays.

  • Orioles' Gunnar Henderson: Reaches four times in rout

    Henderson went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run, three walks and an additional run scored in a 14-8 win against the Red Sox on Monday.

    Baltimore slugged four homers as a team between the sixth and seventh innings, and Henderson hit the longest among those with a 428-foot, two-run shot to center field. The talented rookie also drew three free passes, a high mark so far in his brief career. This may prove to be a big confidence-building performance for Henderson following his first significant major-league dry spell -- he had gone 0-for-13 with seven strikeouts over his previous four games.

  • Orioles' Gunnar Henderson: Effective out of leadoff spot

    Henderson went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Detroit.

    Henderson made the most of his first career start batting leadoff in the big leagues. He recorded his fifth multi-hit effort in his last seven games, including a two-run home run. The homer, Henderson's third on the campaign, was a 409-foot blast to right field in the seventh inning which pulled the game to within one. It's uncertain if he will stick in the leadoff spot, but Henderson looks like he should be a quality source of counting stats down the stretch regardless of where he bats in the order.

  • Orioles' Gunnar Henderson: Leading off Tuesday

    Henderson will man third base and hit leadoff in Tuesday's game against the Tigers, Andy Kostka of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Henderson hit no higher than cleanup over his first 18 appearances as a big leaguer, but manager Brandon Hyde decided to switch things up with the Orioles' offense looking for a spark, so the rookie will get a shot to show what he can do atop the order.

  • Orioles' Gunnar Henderson: Another multi-hit game

  • Orioles' Gunnar Henderson: Launches second homer

  • Orioles' Gunnar Henderson: Stays hot with two hits

    Henderson went 2-for-4 with a double, a triple, four RBI and one run scored in Wednesday's win over the Nationals.

    For the second night in a row, Henderson recorded two hits, including his first career triple. The three-bagger down the left field line in the seventh inning scored two runners, and a throwing error by the left fielder allowed Henderson to come around and score himself. He also doubled in a run in the eighth inning to go along with an RBI groundout earlier in the game. In 14 games since being called up, Henderson is slashing .320/.370/.520. While he should not be expected to perform at this level for a full season, his slash line is similar to the .288/.390/.504 slash line he maintained in 295 plate appearances at Triple-A this year, giving credence to his strong performance thus far.

With Henderson and fellow rookie Adley Rutschman playing to their pedigree, the future is bright in Baltimore.
