Sisco is not in the lineup Saturday for Game 1 of a doubleheader against Tampa Bay, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Pedro Severino will handle catching duties and bat fourth against lefty Brendan McKay. Sisco had started six of the past eight games since overtaking Severino as the Orioles' No. 1 catcher. The left-handed-hitting catcher is slashing .271/.377/.661 with six home runs and 17 RBI in 69 plate appearances against right-handed pitching. Sisco is featuring a .992 OPS to go along with two home runs, three RBI and three runs scored in his five July starts.
Sisco went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.
Sisco left the yard in the seventh inning to get the Orioles on the board, but it would be the only offense Baltimore would muster all day. The 24-year-old backstop has now hit safely in four straight matchups, slugging a pair of homers during that brief stretch. He'll carry a .283/.394/.667 slash line (19 games) into the All-Star break.
Sisco is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against Toronto, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Sisco has been on a tear since getting called up to the big leagues, hitting .268/.388/.625 with five homers in 18 games. That's moved him into a clear starting role behind the plate in Baltimore. He'll sit in favor of Pedro Severino on Saturday after starting six of the last seven games.
Sisco went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Tuesday against the Rays.
Sisco took Chaz Roe deep in the ninth inning to record his fifth homer of the season. He continues to split time behind the dish with Pedro Severino, but has now homered in three of his last four starts. The strong run helps his case for more playing time, also improving his line to an impressive .265/.379/.673 across 58 plate appearances for the campaign.
Sisco is not in the lineup for Monday's game at Tampa Bay, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Sisco was behind the plate for all three games this weekend against the Indians and went 4-for-12 with two homers, five runs scored and seven RBI. Pedro Severino will start at catcher and bat sixth in Monday's series opener.
Sisco will start at catcher and bat cleanup Sunday against the Indians, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Sisco will be rewarded with a third consecutive start after going 4-for-9 with two home runs, a double, seven RBI and five runs over the first two contests of the series. While Pedro Severino has acted as the Orioles' No. 1 backstop for much of the season and has generally been productive, the 24-year-old Sisco was the more highly regarded prospect and probably has a greater part in the organization's long-term plans. With that in mind, it wouldn't be surprising if Sisco saw the bulk of the starts behind the dish for the remainder of the season.
Sisco went 2-for-4 with a double, walk, two RBI and one run scored Wednesday against the Blue Jays.
Sisco recorded his third double of the season in the eighth inning, driving in two in the midst of the Orioles' rally.

Sisco was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Monday.
Sisco struggled to a .181/.288/.269 line in 63 games for the Orioles last season but hit .289/.383/.530 in 44 games for Norfolk this season. It's unclear how the playing time will break down between him and Pedro Severino, who is hitting a surprising .273/.360/.475.
Sisco will likely join the Orioles for their upcoming series in Texas, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
The Orioles sent Austin Wynns to Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday, which would seemingly open up a position on the catching depth chart for Sisco. He'll likely split time with current starter Pedro Severino, though Sisco could overtake him for more playing time if he hits well. Sisco has looked ready for the call early on this season, hitting .288/.381/.528 across 189 appearances at Norfolk.
Sisco was named the International League Player of the Week on Monday after batting .565 with five home runs, two doubles, 15 RBI and nine runs over a six-game stretch for Triple-A Norfolk.
Sisco's season line looked fairly pedestrian as April came to an end, but the red-hot streak has boosted him to a robust .293/.381/.522 across 24 games. The 24-year-old failed to break camp with the Orioles largely as a result of concerns about his defense behind the plate rather than his bat, so despite his huge production of late, it's unclear if a callup to the big leagues is imminent. The Orioles have been getting by with a catching timeshare of Pedro Severino and Austin Wynns, neither of whom possesses the fantasy upside that Sisco does.
Sisco was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
It's a move that's hard to justify based on Sisco's spring stats, as he hit .382/.533/.765. Service-time reasons could be behind the decision, though Sisco did also follow up his 1.274 spring OPS last year with a .557 mark in the regular season. Some combination of Austin Wynns (oblique), Pedro Severino and Jesus Sucre will open the season as the Orioles' catchers, but none will be much of an obstacle when the team deems Sisco ready to go.
Sisco could open the season with Triple-A Norfolk, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
It's hard to say the move would be justified, as Sisco is hitting an excellent .300/.475/.700 with four homers in 13 games this spring. The Orioles could be looking at his stats from last season, where he hit just .181/.288/.269 in 63 big-league games, or they could simply be maximizing their resources by sending down a player who has options remaining. If Sisco does end up being demoted, some combination of Austin Wynns (oblique), Pedro Severino and Jesus Sucre would handling catching duties to start the season.
