Orioles' Rio Ruiz: Likely out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruiz (shoulder) isn't expected to play during Wednesday's doubleheader against the Marlins, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.

The 26-year-old was scratched from Sunday's game with shoulder soreness and didn't see the field during Tuesday's loss. Ruiz is off to a strong start in 2020 with an 1.112 OPS through 26 plate appearances, but he apparently needs at least another day before returning to game action.

Orioles' Rio Ruiz: Sitting again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruiz (shoulder) isn't in the lineup Tuesday against the Marlins.

Orioles' Rio Ruiz: Managing sore shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruiz was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to shoulder soreness, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.

Manager Brandon Hyde said the 26-year-old was withheld from the lineup for precautionary reasons, so it doesn't appear to be a serious injury. Ruiz is off to a strong start this season with a .318/.385/.727 slash line and three homers in six games.

Orioles' Rio Ruiz: Pulled from lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruiz was scratched from the lineup ahead of Sunday's game against the Rays for an unspecified reason, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.

One of the hotter hitters in the Baltimore lineup early on this season, Ruiz's streak of five straight starts will come to an end after he was surprisingly scratched. Pat Valaika will enter the lineup at third base and bat seventh in place of Ruiz. Expect manager Brandon Hyde to provide an explanation behind Ruiz's removal from the lineup later Sunday.

Orioles' Rio Ruiz: Continues power surge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruiz went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run Thursday against the Yankees.

Ruiz drew the start against southpaw J.A. Happ and delivered with a home run in the second inning. It was Ruiz's third homer of the season, and he's now gone deep in three of his four starts. While the power production is positive, Ruiz has collected just one additional hit and is striking out at a 35 percent rate.

Orioles' Rio Ruiz: Not starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruiz isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Red Sox.

Ruiz hit an Opening Day home run Friday against the Red Sox, but he'll play a bench role for the second game of the series. Pat Valaika will start at third base Saturday, batting eighth.

Orioles' Rio Ruiz: Hits Opening Day homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruiz went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Friday's 13-2 loss to the Red Sox.

Ruiz was able to replicate his strong spring training performance (.440/.464/.680) in the first game of the season, as he took Austin Brice deep in the seventh inning. Despite the loss, Ruiz started the season on a positive note and is already showing why the Orioles chose him as the starting third baseman to begin the campaign.

Orioles' Rio Ruiz: Solid production in spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruiz has slashed .440/.464/.680 with four extra-base hits and two RBI over 28 plate appearances this spring.

Although he didn't display extraordinary power numbers over his limited sample size, Ruiz was able to get on base with consistency. The 25-year-old will likely serve as the Orioles' starting third baseman to open the season. However, he could eventually face some competition, as Renato Nunez has also been working at the hot corner ahead of Ryan Mountcastle's likely debut at some point in 2020, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Orioles' Rio Ruiz: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruiz is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Ruiz started the last five contests but will take a seat in the season finale after going 4-for-23 in that stretch. Hanser Alberto and Jonathan Villar will start at third and second base Sunday, respectively.

Orioles' Rio Ruiz: Starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruiz is starting at third base and hitting fifth Tuesday against the Blue Jays, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

The Orioles decided to switch up their lineup after Toronto's scheduled starter, Anthony Kay, was scratched with a back injury. Hanser Alberto will retreat to the bench with Ruiz rejoining the starting lineup.

Orioles' Rio Ruiz: Situated on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruiz is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Blue Jays, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Ruiz will give way to Hanser Alberto at third base with left-hander Thomas Pannone starting for the Blue Jays. Over his past 10 games, Ruiz is slashing .267/.371/.600 with two home runs and a 5:5 BB:K.

Orioles' Rio Ruiz: Belts 12th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruiz went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run and a walk Monday in the Orioles' 11-10 win over the Blue Jays in 15 innings.

Ruiz smacked one of three fifth-inning homers for the Orioles, who were able to dig out of an early deficit. The 25-year-old is slashing .241/.339/.556 in September and looks poised to see the bulk of the action at third base during the final week of the season.

Orioles' Rio Ruiz: On bench against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruiz will sit against lefty Tyler Alexander and the Tigers on Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Ruiz owns a poor 69 wRC+ in limited action against lefties this season, though it's not as if he's crushed righties either, posting an 83 wRC+ against that group. Hanser Alberto slides to third base as usual against the southpaw, with Jonathan Villar moving to second and Richie Martin starting at shortstop.

Orioles' Rio Ruiz: Smacks a home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruiz went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, a run scored and a walk in the Orioles 8-2 win over the Tigers on Sunday.

Ruiz launched a two-run home run to right field in the third inning to take a 4-2 lead in what proved to be the game-winning runs for the Orioles. It's his second consecutive game with at least one RBI as he now has 41 RBI on the season to go along with 11 home runs and a .237/.309/.377 slash across 367 plate appearances. Ruiz and the Orioles wrap up a four-game series against Detroit on Monday before they come home to play the Blue Jays.
