Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Three-hit effort in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mountcastle went 3-for-4 in Wednesday's 9-1 loss to the Red Sox.

All three of Mountcastle's hits were singles, as were seven of the Orioles' other eight hits. The lack of extra-base power made it difficult for Mountcastle and the Orioles to create much offense against Red Sox starter Nathan Eovaldi. The 23-year-old Mountcastle is slashing an excellent .330/.385/.514 with five homers, 21 RBI and 11 runs scored in 31 games this year.

Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Collects three RBI in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mountcastle went 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI in Monday's 14-1 win over Atlanta.

Mountcastle got the offensive frenzy started with an RBI single in the first inning. He later knocked his 5th homer of the season during a nine-run third frame. The rookie slugger is slashing .364/.425/.610 with 18 RBI in 87 plate appearances.

Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Slugs fourth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mountcastle went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run Tuesday against the Mets.

Mountcastle smacked his fourth home run of the season, taking Michael Wacha deep in the fourth frame. He's recorded at least one RBI in five of his last six contests and is regularly hitting in the middle of the Orioles' lineup. Mountcastle has had a successful start to his major-league career, racking up a .339/.397/.607 line across 63 plate appearances.

Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Big impact in nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mountcastle went 3-for-3 with a homer, three RBI and two runs scored in a 6-3 win over the Yankees in Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader.

Mountcastle opened the scoring with a two-run homer in the second inning. He added an RBI single in the fifth inning and came around to scored on a Pat Valaika double. Mountcastle is up to three homers, nine RBI and seven runs scored through 50 plate appearances this season. His strong hitting has earned him a near-everyday role in left field.

Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mountcastle is not in the lineup for the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Yankees, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Mountcastle has hit the ball quite well in his first 11 major-league games, slashing .341/.400/.537. DJ Stewart will be the left fielder for the afternoon game, but Mountcastle will likely return to the lineup for the nightcap.

Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Crushes first two home runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mountcastle went 3-for-4 with two homers and three RBI in Sunday's 6-5 loss to Toronto.

The rookie slugger knocked his first career homer in the second inning before tacking on another two-run blast in the sixth. Mountcastle has four multi-hit performances in his last six games. He's sporting an impressive .393/.469/.679 slash line with four extra-base hits in 32 plate appearances.

Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Draws third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mountcastle will start in left field and will bat seventh Sunday against the Red Sox, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

The Orioles have deployed Mountcastle as their starting left fielder in each of the team's three games since he was promoted from the alternate site Friday. The 23-year-old has gone 1-for-6 with two walks and a run scored in his first two big-league games, and he should continue to enjoy a regular role for the Orioles the rest of the season, barring a prolonged slump at the plate.

Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Set for big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mountcastle will be recalled by the Orioles on Friday for his major-league debut, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Mountcastle doesn't offer much other than his bat, but his bat is strong enough to make him an interesting prospect nonetheless. He entered pro ball as a shortstop but spent the majority of last season at first base and left field, with a bit of third base mixed in. He should have the chance to hit for enough power and average to be useful even at those positions, as he hit .312 with 25 homers in 127 games for Triple-A Norfolk last season. There are questions about his approach, however, as he owns a career 4.5 percent walk rate as a professional. It's possible that will hold back the rest of his numbers at the big-league level, but it's also possible that it hurts his stock in on-base percentage leagues without affecting him too much in standard formats as long as he keeps making both frequent and strong contact. His exact role this season remains to be seen, but the Orioles don't have many players with locked-in roles, so he should find his way to plenty of at-bats.

Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Officially joins player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mountcastle was added to the Orioles' 60-man roster Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Mountcastle was expected to join the Orioles' player pool, but he was officially able to join the team for workouts Wednesday along with teammate Mason Williams after they cleared intake testing. Mountcastle will work with the major-league club before a secondary training site is opened for the team. The 23-year-old advanced to Triple-A Norfolk last season, where he hit .312/.344/.527 with 25 home runs and 83 RBI, and he could potentially make his debut in the majors at some point in 2020.

Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Will get added to pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mountcastle is expected to be added to the Orioles' 60-man player pool before the start of the season, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.

Connolly notes that Mountcastle won't be promoted to the majors until the team has manipulated his service time (at least seven days at the satellite camp) to gain an extra year of control, and it is not even a given that he will be up at that point. However, it is still the expectation that Mountcastle will make his debut at some point this season. He hit .235/.235/.412 with one home run and a 9:0 K:BB in 34 plate appearances this spring and is limited to left field, first base and designated hitter.

Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mountcastle was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.

Mountcastle is an interesting prospect, though he didn't appear to be a favor to break camp with the team, and his uninspiring .235/.235/.412 slash line in 34 spring plate appearances didn't exactly help his case. After hitting .312/.344/.527 with 25 homers in 127 games for Norfolk last season, however, he doesn't have a whole lot left to prove in the minors.

Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Lackluster output in spring play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mountcastle hit .235/.235/.412 with one home run and nine strikeouts over 34 plate appearances this spring.

Mountcastle was working at first base and in the outfield before spring training was suspended, although it's unlikely that he'll be on the major-league roster when play resumes. However, designated hitter Renato Nunez has been working at third base this spring, which could open up more opportunities for Mountcastle if he makes his likely debut in 2020, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Evaluated at first base, outfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mountcastle has been primarily been working out at first base in the Orioles' early full-squad workouts, though manager Brandon Hyde said he plans to expose the 23-year-old to the outfield as well, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.

Baltimore protected Mountcastle from the Rule 5 draft over the winter in anticipation of him debuting from the big club in 2020, but he'll be hard pressed to crack the Opening Day roster. Instead, Mountcastle's main focus this spring will be increasing his versatility on the defensive end, as his bat is probably already good enough to warrant an opportunity in the majors. Entering the season, Trey Mancini, Renato Nunez and Anthony Santander are seemingly locked into full-time roles at either first base, the corner outfield or designated hitter, so Mountcastle seems most likely to cut into the playing time of Chris Davis once the Orioles deem him big-league ready.

Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Added to 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mountcastle was added to the Orioles' 40-man roster Wednesday.

Mountcastle's .312/.344/.527 with 25 home runs for Triple-A Norfolk in 2019 prompted some speculation that he could make his major-league debut, but he never reached Baltimore's roster. While his addition to the 40-man roster is mainly to shield him from the Rule 5 draft, it wouldn't be entirely surprising if the 22-year-old reached the majors at some point next season.

Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Won't debut in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mountcastle will not be promoted to the majors this season, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Mountcastle enjoyed success in his first season with Triple-A Norfolk, slashing .310/.343/.527 with 25 home runs and 82 RBI in 126 games for the Tides, but he'll have to wait until 2020 to make his big-league debut. The 22-year-old doesn't walk much (4.4 percent walk rate) and isn't a great defender, but he makes solid contact and could reasonably hit .280 with 20-25 home runs once he reaches the majors.

Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Enjoying hot run at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mountcastle went 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs and four RBI in Triple-A Norfolk's 9-7 win over Rochester on Thursday.

The 22-year-old has caught fire at the plate lately for Norfolk, batting .357 with three home runs over his last 10 games. A first baseman by trade, Mountcastle has also dabbled at the hot corner and in left field for Norfolk, which could help his cause for landing an everyday role once he eventually gets the call to the big leagues. A promotion could be coming shortly after the trade deadline July 31, when the non-contending Orioles may have some openings in the lineup depending on who is dealt away.

Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Starting in LF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mountcastle will make his professional debut in the outfield Tuesday for Triple-A Norfolk, starting in left field and hitting cleanup.

It has been clear for a couple years now that Mountcastle doesn't profile anywhere on the left side of the infield, but he had been limited mostly to first base work this year, while getting practice reps in the outfield. Mountcastle may be the rare hitting prospect who breaks in as a designated hitter, but he could also retain eligibility at outfield or first base. He could make his big-league debut this summer.

Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Enjoys three-homer day at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mountcastle went 3-for-5 with three home runs and five RBI for Triple-A Norfolk in its 11-5 win over Louisville on Sunday.

Since returning to the Norfolk lineup Friday, Mountcastle has shown no ill effects of the left wrist injury that sidelined him for a week. In his first three games back, Mountcastle has gone yard four times, propping up his season batting line to a robust .328/.351/.578 in 46 contests. The Orioles want the 22-year-old to show more polish at third base and potentially take some reps in the outfield before promoting him, but Mountcastle should make his big-league debut at some point this summer.

Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mountcastle (wrist) returned to the lineup at Triple-A Norfolk, his first action since May 24.

Mountcastle was hitless in four at-bats, fanning twice, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him struggle over the course of the next few games due to his week-long absence. He could be promoted later in the summer if he continues to hit well.

Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Receives cortisone injection
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mountcastle received a cortisone shot on his sore left wrist Wednesday, David Hall of The Virginian-Pilot reports.

Mountcastle is out of the lineup for a fifth straight game Wednesday, though his absence is being considered precautionary. Following Wednesday's injection, Mountcastle could return to action with Triple-A Norfolk as soon as Saturday. Prior to suffering the injury, the 22-year-old Mountcastle was hitting .326/.351/.528 with seven homers and 33 RBI in 43 games for the Tides.
