Manager Brandon Hyde said that Stewart (forearm) will make his first start of the spring Sunday, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
The skipper didn't specify whether Stewart would be taking the hill for the Orioles' Grapefruit League game against Yankees or if he'll pitch in a 'B' game on the back fields, but in any case, the right-hander will be able to begin his bid in earnest for a spot in the Orioles' rotation. The time Stewart has already missed in camp due to forearm soreness will probably prevent him from getting fully stretched out by the time Opening Day arrives, but that won't necessarily preclude the 25-year-old from being ready when a fifth starter is first needed April 1.
Stewart (forearm) has another bullpen session scheduled for Saturday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
The 25-year-old resumed his throwing program in a bullpen session Thursday after being shut down for a week due to forearm soreness, and he'll continue his progression this weekend. The O's will remain cautious and avoid rushing back from the injury, but Stewart doesn't seem too far off from seeing Grapefruit League action.
Stewart (forearm) was able to play catch and complete a bullpen session Thursday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.
Stewart had shut down his throwing program for the past week after experiencing forearm soreness, but his ability to resume mound work suggests he's feeling healthier now. The right-hander noted that he doesn't want to rush himself back into action immediately after the injury, so he may be several days away from making his Grapefruit League debut.
Manager Brandon Hyde said Wednesday that Stewart (forearm) has yet to resume a throwing program, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Stewart is believed to be managing soreness rather than contending with any structural damage to his throwing arm. Hyde is hopeful that Stewart can begin throwing again within the next few days, but the right-hander won't be a realistic option for Grapefruit League games until at least the first week of March. The unfortunate timing of the injury looks like it may derail Stewart's chances of winning a spot in the Orioles' Opening Day rotation.
Stewart's training has been pushed back several days as a result of forearm soreness, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.
Stewart has been limited with a sore forearm, but he reportedly felt better Monday. The 25-year-old is competing for a spot in the Orioles' starting rotation during spring training after he struggled with the Twins in 2019, recording a 6.39 ERA and 1.46 WHIP over 25.1 innings.
Stewart signed a major-league deal with the Orioles on Sunday.
The 25-year-old became a free agent after being outrighted off the Twins' 40-man roster in November, and he now found a new home in the American League East. According to Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports, Stewart received a split contract and can be optioned to the minors, but he should have every opportunity to secure a spot in the major-league rotation. He struggled in 2019 with Minnesota, posting a 6.39 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 10:8 K:BB across 25.1 innings.
Stewart was outrighted off Minnesota's 40-man roster and will become a free agent.
Stewart added bullpen depth for the Twins last season, throwing 25.1 innings with a 6.39 ERA. He also made two spot starts. His strikeout rates at Triple-A and in the majors have always been well below average, but he typically generates groundballs at an above-average clip. Look for him to catch on elsewhere on a minor-league deal.
Stewart was recalled by the Twins on Sunday.
Stewart has worked 22.1 innings with the big-league club this season, racking up a 5.64 ERA and 1.39 WHIP with just seven strikeouts across 22.1 innings. In his most recent stint with the team, he worked as a reliever, a role he's likely to fill with the team for the remainder of the season.
Stewart was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
Stewart will head back to the minors after tossing three innings of relief (allowing one run on five hits) in Wednesday's 11-7 loss to the Braves. A corresponding roster move will be announced prior to Thursday's series opener against the Indians.
Stewart was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
Stewart owns a 4.66 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 6:6 K:BB across 19.1 innings with the Twins this season. He'll replace Cody Stashak, who tossed 1.2 innings of relief Tuesday, on the roster and in the bullpen.
Stewart was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday.
The Twins needed some fresh arms in the bullpen, so Stewart was sent packing. He will serve as organizational bullpen depth going forward.
Stewart was recalled by the Twins on Thursday.
Stewart owns a respectable 4.15 ERA in 17.1 innings of work for the Twins this season, but he's struck out just 5.8 percent of opposing hitters. His 19.5 percent strikeout rate for Triple-A Rochester is much better (though far from impressive), but it's come with a 6.28 ERA. Matt Magill was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.
Stewart will be sent back to Triple-A Rochester on Sunday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Stewart was up for just two days and did not get into a game. In 17.1 innings for the Twins this season, he owns a respectable 4.15 ERA but an anemic 5.8 percent strikeout rate. Devin Smeltzer will take his place on the roster.
Stewart was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Friday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
Stewart rejoins the Twins with Blake Parker heading to the paternity list. Stewart has a 4.50 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 4:5 K:BB over 16 major-league innings this season.
Stewart was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Friday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
Stewart was promoted to the big leagues Thursday, and he was impressive in his lone appearance, hurling four scoreless innings while fanning one. Blake Parker was reinstated from the Family Medical Emergency List in a corresponding move.
Stewart was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Thursday.
The 24-year-old right-hander has been abysmal as a big-league starter, but he will be working out of the bullpen this time around. He has a 1.33 ERA and 13 strikeouts in 20.1 career innings out of the big-league bullpen, due in large part to his elite ability to generate groundballs.
Stewart (1-1) earned the win in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Tigers but was optioned to Triple-A Rochester after the game, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
Stewart's second major-league outing of the year went much better than his first, as he struck out two and allowed three runs on six hits and two walks over six innings. The 24-year-old will rejoin the Red Wings to make room on the roster for Sunday's starter, Martin Perez, who is coming off the paternity list.
Stewart was called up from Triple-A Rochester on Saturday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
Stewart was brought up to start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader with the Tigers. His stay with the big club could be brief, as Martin Perez -- the player Stewart is replacing -- is expected to return from the paternity list and start Sunday.
Stewart will start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Tigers, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
The Twins hinted that Stewart may be called up to start one of Saturday's contests, and they made it official Friday evening. He didn't fare well in his first start this season in the big leagues, surrendering five runs while fanning one over six innings April 24 against Houston, so he'll look for a better result this time around.
Stewart is expected to start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Tigers, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
Stewart was spotted in the team clubhouse Friday, so all signs point to him toeing the rubber for Game 2. Assuming the move is made official prior to Saturday's contest, he'll likely move right back to the minors following his outing.
