Sisco was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Monday.
Sisco saw inconsistent playing time to begin the season and hit .154 with four runs and three RBI in 23 games. He'll now attempt to sort things out in the minors, while Austin Wynns' contract was selected as part of a corresponding move. Wynns should serve as the backup catcher for the Orioles going forward.
Sisco went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Tuesday's 13-6 loss to Tampa Bay.
Sisco reached on a single in the fourth inning and scored when Austin Hays hit into a fielder's choice. Playing time remains scarce for Sisco -- he's appeared in only 17 games this year. The backup catcher is slashing just .180/.255/.220 with no home runs, three RBI and four runs scored across 55 plate appearances. Pedro Severino remains the top option behind the plate for Baltimore.
Sisco went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Athletics.

Sisco has gone just 4-for-28 (.185) with two RBI and a run scored in nine games this season.

Sisco has played in only seven of the Orioles' 16 games so far. He's provided one RBI, one run scored, three singles and 10 strikeouts. As the primary backup to Pedro Severino at catcher, Sisco shouldn't be expected to get a lot of playing time.
Sisco will be included on the Orioles' Opening Day roster, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Just like the past two seasons, Sisco is expected to serve as the top backup to No. 1 catcher Pedro Severino in 2021. Sisco boasts a decent amount of pop and has shown the ability to draw walks at high rates throughout his time in the big leagues, but his poor defense will likely make it tough for him to leapfrog Severino on the depth chart.

Sisco is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mets, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
The Orioles wanted to give everyday shortstop Jose Iglesias some time out of the field for the day game after a night game, so he'll occupy the designated-hitter spot and bump SIsco to the bench as a result. With an .877 OPS over 78 plate appearances this season, the lefty-hitting Sisco looks primed to continue receiving at least semi-regular starts against right-handed pitching.
Sisco is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.
Sisco has been handling a near-everyday role of late, starting in four of the Orioles' last five games as either a catcher or designated hitter. The Orioles wanted to give shortstop Jose Iglesias a day out of the field in the series finale, leaving no room at DH for Sisco, who will also cede the start behind the dish to top backstop Pedro Severino.
Sisco is not in Friday's lineup against the Blue Jays.
Pedro Severino (hip) is back behind the dish and Jose Iglesias is getting the start at designated hitter. Sisco is hitting .179 with two home runs and a 37.1 percent strikeout rate over his last 10 games.
Sisco went 1-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in an 8-5 loss to the Red Sox on Friday.
Sisco hit a three-run blast in the eighth inning to give the Orioles some life, but ultimately it wasn't enough. The 25-year-old backstop has now homered in two of his last three games while racking up five RBI in the process. His playing time moving forward looks a bit murky with the recent addition of Ryan Mountcastle, but he should still get the occasional start at catcher or designated hitter while mostly occupying a backup role.
Sisco isn't starting Thursday against the Red Sox.
Sisco has seen a fair amount of playing time between the catcher and designated hitter roles this season, but he'll get a day off for the series opener against the Red Sox. Dwight Smith will rest his legs as the designated hitter with Pat Valaika starting in left field.

Sisco went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and three RBI on Wednesday against the Phillies.
Sisco first came through with a two-RBI single in the fourth inning to tie the game at three. He then provided a necessary insurance run to lead off the seventh inning by smacking a solo home run. Sisco now has two home runs on the season, but has quietly put together a .381/.536/.762 line across 28 plate appearances.
Sisco (triceps) will start in Sunday's game against the Red Sox, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

The 25-year-old is expected to split time with Pedro Severino and Austin Wynns behind the plate this season, provided he's healthy. He hit a respectable-enough (for a catcher) .210/.333/.395 with eight homers in 198 plate appearances last season.
Sisco (hand) took some at-bats against Tommy Milone in a simulated game Thursday, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Sisco had bruised his hand on a foul tip a few days prior to that, but now that he's swinging again, the backstop looks like he'll be fully recovered from the injury by the time the Orioles reconvene for workouts. The 25-year-old is battling Austin Wynns for the top backup job behind Pedro Severino.
Sisco hurt his hand on a foul tip and has been briefly held back, though he was able to hit Wednesday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.
It doesn't sound like Sisco is anything worse than banged up. With Opening Day still over two weeks away, his availability for the start of the season doesn't appear to be under serious threat. He's lined up for some sort of timeshare with Pedro Severino again this season, though the exact split between the two remains to be seen.
Sisco is not in the lineup for Sunday's game at Boston, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Sisco will finish the season on the bench and received only two starts in the last eight games. Austin Wynns will work behind the plate Sunday for the Orioles.
