Orioles' Austin Wynns: Slated to start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns (groin) will catch and bat eighth Thursday in the Orioles' Grapefruit League game against the Twins, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Since being scratched from the lineup ahead of a March 4 game against the Marlins with a sore groin, Wynns has proceeded to appear in four spring contests, all as a reserve. The fact that he's now been cleared to start behind the dish suggests he's in sound health and shouldn't be hampered by injury in his bid for the Orioles' No. 2 catching job.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Feels ready to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns (groin) said he was scratched ahead of Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins merely as a precaution, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. "Everything's good," Wynns said. "Just taking precautions, but ready to go."

Wynns is likely just dealing with some minor soreness after taking a foul ball to his groin area while he was catching Monday. He's expected to check back into the spring lineup within the next few days, so his brief absence shouldn't impact his chances of beating out Chance Sisco for the Orioles' No. 2 catching job.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Scratched with groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns was scratched from the lineup ahead of Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins due to a groin issue, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.

Wynns took a foul ball to the lower half Monday and is apparently still dealing with some residual soreness two days later. Chance Sisco will enter the starting nine in place of Wynns, who can be viewed as day-to-day.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Called up for final month
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns will join the Orioles on Tuesday, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Wynns appeared in 16 games for the Orioles early in the season but didn't do much at the plate, hitting .233/.283/.256. He's expected to serve as the Orioles' third catcher down the stretch.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Orioles optioned Wynns to Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

With Pedro Severino apparently healthy again after battling an illness that left him unavailable for Friday's win over the Red Sox, there was no need for the Orioles to carry Wynns any longer as the backup catcher behind Chance Sisco. The Orioles recalled reliever Tanner Scott from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Rejoins Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Friday.

Wynns was optioned to Triple-A in early June but returns to the majors with Pedro Severino battling an illness. Wynns seems likely to be shipped back to the minors once Severino is clear of the issue.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday.

Wynns had been splitting time with Pedro Severino behind the plate in Baltimore but had found little success, hitting .233/.283/.256 through 47 plate appearances. His demotion is expected to make room for prospect Chance Sisco to join the major-league roster.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Splitting time with Severino
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns will start at catcher and bat seventh Thursday against the Yankees, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Wynns and Severino have alternated starts behind the dish over the last eight contests, with both backstops drawing four starts. Given he maintains a .515 OPS on the season compared to Severino's .798 mark, Wynns will probably need to increase his offensive production before claiming a larger portion of the timeshare.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Not in Monday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns is on the bench Monday against Boston, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Wynns was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk eight days ago and inserted straight into the starting lineup, but he doesn't appear to be the Orioles' primary catcher. Pedro Severino has started four times to Wynns' three since Wynns returned.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Out of Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Rays, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Wynns will take a seat for the third time in five games since being called up from Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday. Pedro Severino will grab another start behind the plate and bat ninth.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: On bench for Game 1 of doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the White Sox, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Wynns will give way to Pedro Severino behind the dish for the first half of Wednesday's twin bill. Look for the backstop to rejoin the starting lineup for Game 2.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Not starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns is not in the lineup Monday against the White Sox, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Wynns was recalled Sunday and inserted straight into the lineup. The playing-time split between him and Pedro Severino, who starts Monday, remains to be seen.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Recalled Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday.

Wynns was called up to replace Jesus Sucre, who was designated for assignment. He had been playing well in the minors early on this season, combining to hit .333/.487/.400 across 39 plate appearances between Double and Triple-A action. Wynns got his first taste of the major leagues in 2018 and managed to record a .255 average with four home runs across 118 plate appearances. He figures to get considerable playing time behind the plate for the Orioles.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Activated and optioned
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns (oblique) was activated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday.

Wynns' 81 wRC+ last year was certainly unimpressive, but it led all Orioles catchers, so he seemed to have a shot at fairly regular playing time this season. That playing time won't come right away, with Pedro Severino and Jesus Sucre holding onto their roster spots for now. Neither active catcher is above .273 in any triple-slash category, so it's possible Wynns gets his chance soon.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Still two weeks away
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns is making progress with his oblique injury but remains two weeks away from getting into game action, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.

The two-week timeframe appears to relate to when Wynns can play at any level, so he'll likely need a rehab assignment before joining the big-league roster. Jesus Sucre and Pedro Severino will remain the Orioles' catchers for the time being.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns (oblique) was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday.

As expected, Wynns will be out for at least the first week of the season. It's unclear when he's expected to return, but he's returned to batting practice in recent days, so his absence may not be too long. Pedro Severino and Jesus Sucre will open the season as the team's catchers.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Bound for injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns (oblique) is expected to open the season on the injured list, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

The news is hardly surprising, as Wynns hasn't played in a game for over three weeks. He's returned to batting practice in the last few days, but it's still unclear when he's expected to get back into game action.

March 23, 2019 01:52 PM
Orioles' Austin Wynns: Continues with batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns (oblique) took batting practice again Friday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Wynns said Monday he hoped to return to game action by the end of the week but he remains out of the lineup Friday. The 28-year-old's continued participation in batting practice indicates he hasn't suffered a setback with his oblique, but he still has no set date for his return.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Expects to play this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns (oblique) said Monday that he's hopeful to return to the Orioles' Grapefruit League lineup by the end of the week, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Wynns is slated to hit soft-toss pitching Tuesday before likely moving on to live batting practice Wednesday. If his oblique checks out fine following the two workouts, Wynns could re-enter the lineup as a designated hitter before eventually stepping back in behind the plate. With Chance Sisco having seemingly separated himself from the Orioles' other catchers in spring training, Wynns is competing with a trio of non-roster players in Jesus Sucre, Carlos Perez and Andrew Susac for the No. 2 gig.
