Tate was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right finger sprain, retroactive to Monday.
Tate pitched relatively well in 2020 while working mainly as a low-leverage reliever for Baltimore as he posted a 3.24 ERA and 0.84 WHIP over 16.2 innings. However, he'll miss the remainder of the regular season due to his finger injury. The right-hander should be ready for spring training in 2021 after his promising 2020 campaign.
Tate (1-0) pitched 1.1 scoreless innings, allowing a walk and striking out two to earn the win Saturday versus the Yankees.
Tate relieved starter Keegan Akin with one out in the sixth inning. In the bottom of the sixth, the Orioles' offense sparked to life with a five-run rally, and that put Tate in line for his first major-league win. The right-hander has a 2.45 ERA, 0.73 WHIP and 12:5 K:BB across 11 innings this season. He's allowed just two walks over 4.2 scoreless innings in his last three appearances.
Tate (forearm) was activated from the 10-day injured list Monday.
Tate was struck in the arm by a line drive early in camp and spent the early part of the season in the injured list. He's expected to fill a relief role upon his return to the club and will be looking to improve upon his numbers from his 21-inning debut last season in which he struggled to a 6.43 ERA. Evan Phillips was optioned in a corresponding move.
Manager Brandon Hyde said Sunday that Tate (forearm) is nearing a return from the 10-day injured list, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. "A couple days ago [Tate] threw an inning-plus down [at the Orioles' alternate training site in Bowie]," Hyde said. "So he's getting close."
Tate was placed on the injured list July 22, shortly after he was struck in the right forearm by a comebacker during an intrasquad game. Now that he's progressed to the point of facing hitters, Tate has seemingly moved past the injury, and he could be activated the next time the Orioles require a fresh arm in the bullpen.
Tate (forearm) resumed throwing at the alternate training site recently, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Tate has been shut down with a sore right forearm since just before the regular season. While an exact timetable to return hasn't been established, manager Brandon Hyde said Tuesday that the right-hander is, "a couple weeks or less away" from his return if his rehab goes well. Once he's available, Tate should claim a middle relief role out of the bullpen.
The Orioles placed Tate (forearm) on the 10-day injured list Thursday.
Tate won't be available out of the Orioles' Opening Day bullpen while he continues to deal with a sore right forearm, an injury he initially picked up when he was struck by a comebacker in an intrasquad game. Once he's deemed healthy, Tate projects to work in middle relief for Baltimore.
Tate (forearm) still hasn't resumed playing catch and could begin the season on the 10-day injured list, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com
Tate hasn't played since being hit by a comebacker during an intrasquad game July 10, and manager Brandon Hyde revealed Wednesday that he could begin the season on the injured list with Opening Day scheduled for Friday. It's unclear when the right-hander will be able to resume throwing, and how much of the season he misses remains to be seen. Once he's healthy, Tate is expected to primarily work in lower-leverage situations in 2020.
Tate (forearm) is scheduled to play catch in "a day or two" but is unlikely to be ready for Opening Day, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
The 26-year-old has been shut down since being hit by a comebacker during an intrasquad game last Friday, and he was still dealing with some swelling as recently as Thursday. Tate underwent an MRI, which came back clean, but his inability to throw for a week-plus shortly before the start of the season makes it difficult to see him being game ready for the season opener.
Tate (forearm) remains day-to-day with swelling in his right elbow, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Tate has been limited since being hit by a line drive in Friday's intrasquad game, and he's still being brought along slowly with swelling in his right elbow. He underwent an MRI on Saturday that came back negative, but the team is still proceeding with caution.
Tate was diagnosed with a sore right forearm after an MRI returned negative Saturday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Tate will likely be barred from throwing for at least a few days, but with the MRI detecting no structural damage, he doesn't look to be in danger of a long-term absence. The 2015 first-round pick is vying for a spot in the Orioles' Opening Day bullpen and is expected to work mostly in lower-leverage spots this season.
Tate underwent a precautionary MRI on his right forearm Saturday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Tate left Friday's intrasquad game after being struck in the arm by a line drive. The severity of the issue should become clear once the results of the MRI are released.
Tate suffered an apparent right forearm injury during Friday's intrasquad game when he was hit by a line drive, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Tate took a line drive to the right arm while pitching Friday and immediately received medical attention. The exact nature and severity of the injury are unclear, but the Orioles ended the game after the injury occurred.
Tate was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Friday.
Tate was brought up to take the roster spot of Shawn Armstrong (forearm), who landed on the injured list in a corresponding move. Tate has appeared in two games with the Orioles this season, and has allowed six earned runs over five innings, good for a 10.50 ERA. Given that he threw multiple frames in both his last two appearances, Tate figures to slot into a long-relief role for the big club.
The Orioles optioned Tate to Triple-A Norfolk following Sunday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jays, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.
Tate made his third big-league appearance Sunday, giving up a run on two hits and a walk while striking out two over an inning of relief en route to earning his first hold. The right-hander surrendered runs in each of his three outings with the Orioles and will likely need to show improved command at Triple-A before getting a call back to the big club.
Tate was recalled from Double-A Bowie on Friday, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Tate will join the big-league club to provide assistance out of the bullpen following Thursday night's 16-inning affair. He's posted a 3.48 ERA and 1.11 WHIP with a 30:9 K:BB over 33.2 innings at Double-A this season.
Tate (undisclosed) was activated from the injured list and demoted to High-A Frederick on Monday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.
Tate made two starts and three relief appearances for Double-A Bowie prior to landing on the injured list in late April. He struggled to a 6.08 ERA after posting a 5.75 ERA in seven starts for Bowie last season. He'll drop down to High-A to sort himself out, a level at which he hasn't pitched since 2017.
Double-A Bowie placed Tate on its 7-day injured list Tuesday due to an unspecified issue.
Bowie has deployed Tate as both a starter and a reliever this season, with the right-hander churning out a 6.08 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in 13.1 innings over his five outings. The nature and extent of his setback aren't clear, but it's nonetheless a negative development for a pitcher who has only seen his outlook in dynasty leagues plummet since being acquired from the Yankees in the summer of 2016.
Tate was sent to Double-A Bowie on Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Tate has spent the last two seasons at Double-A, although he struggled to a 5.75 ERA with 21 punchouts over 40.2 frames as a starter in 2018. He entered spring training as a reliever, but the club remains optimistic that he can develop into a reliable starter or at least a multi-inning option out of the bullpen.
Tate has been deployed as a reliever this spring, but the Orioles haven't abandoned developing the right-hander as a rotation option, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. "I don't think we've given up on the idea of him being a starter," manager Brandon Hyde said. "He's going to be a multiple-innings guy."
All 35 of Tate's appearances over his past two seasons in the minors have come as a starter, with the right-hander turning in a 3.61 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 159:58 K:BB in 206.2 innings. The early results from his dalliance in the bullpen haven't been impressive, but working in relief may represent Tate's clearest path to the big leagues and allow his otherwise middling fastball to play up.
Tate (shoulder) joined Baltimore's 40-man roster Tuesday.
The Orioles snagged Tate near the end of July from the Yankees in the Zach Britton deal, but his season ended early due to shoulder soreness. He'll be protected from the Rule 5 draft following his placement on the 40-man and should be ready to go for the start of spring training.
