Wilkerson is not starting Tuesday against Washington, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Wilkerson has gone 6-for-17 with a pair of homers over his last five games. Anthony Santander takes over in center field in his absence.
Wilkerson is not in the lineup for Friday's game versus the Rays, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Wilkerson has a .154/.203/.292 slash line with a 31.9 percent strikeout rate since the start of June, so he'll take a seat on the bench Friday. Dwight Smith, Anthony Santander and Trey Mancini will start in the outfield from left to right for the Orioles.
WIlkerson went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and an RBI single as the Orioles defeated the Blue Jays on Saturday.
The blast was just the second for Wilkerson since May 21, and he holds a .218//265/.391 slash line over 174 at-bats.
Wilkerson is not in the lineup for Friday's game versus the Blue Jays, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Wilkerson has been splitting time in center field with Keon Broxton over the past week, but Anthony Santander will man the position for Baltimore on Friday. Wilkerson has a .478 OPS and 33.3 percent strikeout rate since returning to the majors June 6.
Wilkerson will start in center field and bat ninth Sunday against the Indians, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
He'll enter the lineup for the third time in four games, replacing Keon Broxton in the outfield. Since returning to the big club June 6, Wilkerson is hitting just .152 in 46 at-bats. He won't warrant much fantasy intrigue even if he permanently unseats Broxton as the team's top center fielder.
Wilkerson was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.
DJ Stewart (ankle) was placed on the injured list in a corresponding move, allowing Wilkerson to rejoin the big-league club after spending just three days in the minors. Prior to being demoted earlier in the month, the outfielder slashed .235/.283/.412 with five homers and a stolen base in 35 games for the Orioles. Wilkerson is expected to start Thursday, though he figures to primarily fill a utility role during his time with the big club.
Wilkerson was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday.
Wilkerson had been losing playing time to the newly acquired Keon Broxton. With the impending return of Chris Davis (hip), the team needed to create roster space, with Wilkerson being the odd man out. He was hitting .235/.283/.412 through 127 plate appearances in Baltimore.
Wilkerson will start at second base and bat sixth Sunday against the Giants, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Wilkerson tentatively locked down the everyday center-field job in mid-May, but he's since surrendered those duties to the recently acquired Keon Broxton. The Orioles have since transitioned Wilkerson into more of a utility role, rendering him more of a part-time player. He'll enter the lineup Sunday for the fourth time in seven games, with each of those starts coming at different positions.
Wilkerson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Wilkerson wasn't able to take advantage of the favorable hitting conditions at Coors Field in the first two games of the series. Between the contests, he went 1-for-9 with a walk and three strikeouts and was thrown out on both his stolen-base attempts. The newly acquired Keon Broxton will check into the lineup in center field Sunday and could end up displacing Wilkerson as the Orioles' primary option at the position.
Wilkerson went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run and two strikeouts in Tuesday's 11-4 loss to the Yankees.
Wilkerson's fifth-inning blast was about all that went right for the Orioles as the homer only managed to cut the deficit to 9-3. The 27-year-old started in center field and batted leadoff Tuesday, and has a .264/.289/.494 slash line with five home runs and 13 RBI in 25 games.
Wilkerson went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in a 5-1 victory against the Indians on Friday.
This was already his sixth multi-hit game of the month. Behind that total, he is batting .333 (17-for-51) with six extra-base hits and nine RBI in May. Wilkerson didn't play that much in April, but with him swinging the bat like this, he should continue to be in the lineup moving forward. Overall, Wilkerson is hitting .292 with four home runs, 10 RBI, 11 runs and one steal in 72 at-bats this season.
Wilkerson will sit for the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Yankees, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Wilkerson sits after starting 10 straight games, including eight in a row in center field. He hit .316/.350/.526 over that stretch. Joey Rickard starts the day's first game, but Wilkerson could be back in action for the second contest.
Wilkerson will head to the bench for Tuesday's game against the Yankees, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Wilkerson is set for a night off after clubbing his third home run of the season Sunday against the Angels. Joey Rickard will man center field and hit fifth with Wilkerson out of the lineup.
Wilkerson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Though Joey Rickard gets the nod in center field in the series finale, Wilkerson has seemingly unseated him as the Orioles' preferred option at the position. Wilkerson started each of the previous four contests, going 6-for-15 with a home run and four RBI.
Wilkerson is expected to receive an extended look in center field, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Wilkerson will start at the position for the second straight game Saturday and should be expected to do so frequently in the near future. Increased playing time makes him deserving of a look in deep leagues but nothing in his track record suggests he's all that interesting for most fantasy owners. He owns a .203/.232/.329 major-league slash line over 26 career games and an unimpressive .268/.342/.371 mark in six minor-league seasons.
Wilkerson went a collective 3-for-9 with a home run, four RBI, two runs and a stolen base in Wednesday's doubleheader with the White Sox.
Expected to serve as a bench piece upon being called up from Triple-A Norfolk on April 22, Wilkerson has surprisingly started in six of the Orioles' last seven games, including both halves of the twin bill. The 27-year-old turned in a fantasy friendly line for those with the foresight to stream him, but it's still difficult to view Wilkerson as much more than a desperation play in AL-only formats. He's managed only 22 home runs over 1,519 career minor-league at-bats and has only totaled 14 stolen bases across all levels since 2017.
Wilkerson went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the White Sox.
His fourth-inning shot off Ervin Santana proved to be winning run, in addition to being his first homer in the majors. Wilkerson will provide the O's with some bench depth while he's up -- he played every position but catcher and center field for Triple-A Norfolk last year -- but his minor-league track record doesn't hint at much fantasy upside should he see regular playing time.
Wilkerson's contract was purchased from Triple-A Norfolk on Monday.
Wilkerson got into 16 games for the Orioles last season, hitting .174/.224/.239. He has a much better .316/.350/.456 line for Norfolk this season. Cedric Mullins was optioned in a corresponding move, with Josh Lucas getting designated for assignment to clear a spot on the 40-man roster.
Wilkerson was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Wilkerson will report to Triple-A to open the season after passing through waivers unclaimed. The 27-year-old struggled in his big-league debut last season, hitting just .174/.224/.239 in 16 games (49 plate appearances).
The Orioles designated Wilkerson for assignment Saturday.
Wilkerson will surrender his spot on the 40-man roster to catcher Pedro Severino, whom the Orioles picked up through a waiver claim from the Nationals. The switch-hitting utility man reached the big leagues for the first time in 2018 but didn't make much of an impact, slashing .174/.224/.239 while striking out in 16 of his 49 plate appearances with the Orioles.
