Orioles' Austin Wynns: Launches solo homer in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 9-3 loss to the Red Sox.

Wynns took Nick Pivetta deep in the second inning to square the game at 3-3. It was the fourth homer of the year for the backup catcher, who has hit half of those within the past week. Wynns is 5-for-17 (.294) in five games during that stretch, collecting hits in four of them.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Hits third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Sunday's 22-7 loss to Toronto.

The 30-year-old tried to keep the game close with his two-run single in the second inning, but his seventh-inning solo shot was little more than a consolation prize in the lopsided game. Wynns has started four of Baltimore's last eight contests, but that may be more due to a crowded weekend schedule with four games in three days against Toronto than based on performance. He's slashing .184/.238/.298 with three homers, 13 RBI, 11 runs scored and a stolen base in 123 plate appearances as the backup to Pedro Severino.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Notches rare steal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Friday's 6-3 win over Toronto.

The last time the catcher stole a base was in 2017 with Double-A Bowie, so it's not like he's a significant speed threat. Wynns hasn't been able to do much with the bat at the major-league level this year, posting a .178/.235/.271 slash line with two home runs, 10 RBI and 10 runs scored in 116 plate appearances. He's gotten on base in five straight games, going 3-for-15 with three walks in that span, but he'll remain in a backup role to primary catcher Pedro Severino.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Playing time remains thin
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns went 0-for-2 in Wednesday's 10-6 win over Baltimore.

Wynns has appeared in 10 games in August, going 6-for-30 (.200) with two doubles, one RBI and one runs scored this month. The catcher is slashing only .174/.216/.283 through 98 plate appearances this year. He'll remain in a backup role behind Pedro Severino -- playing time will probably be hard to come by down the stretch for Wynns.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Doubles, scores run Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Sunday's 9-6 loss to Tampa Bay.

With Pedro Severino (knee) out of the lineup Sunday, Wynns got a rare start behind the dish. He made the most of the opportunity with his first multi-hit effort since June 29. The backup catcher has gone just 4-for-21 in seven games since the All-Star break, although three of those hits have been doubles. He's slashing .186/.230/.329 with two home runs, eight RBI and eight runs scored in 74 plate appearances.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Playing little behind Severino
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns will start at catcher and bat ninth Sunday against the Royals.

Though Wynns will be behind the dish in the series finale, he looks to be the clear No. 2 option on the depth chart behind Pedro Severino, who is getting some routine maintenance after catching Baltimore's last two games. Since his May 31 promotion from Triple-A Norfolk, Wynns is hitting .184 across 51 plate appearances.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Launches second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and a second run scored in Tuesday's 13-3 rout of the Astros.

The veteran is starting a couple times a week as Baltimore's No. 2 backstop behind Pedro Severino, and Wynns took advantage of his opportunity Tuesday. Despite the strong performance, the 30-year-old is slashing only .171/.209/.341 through 43 plate appearances on the year with two homers and seven RBI -- not surprising numbers for a player with a career .599 OPS in the majors.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Slugs grand slam Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns went 1-for-3 with a grand slam in Saturday's loss to the Rays.

The backstop came up with the bases loaded in the fifth inning and stung Rich Hill for his first career grand slam. It was easily the biggest moment of the season for Wynns, who came into the contest with only two hits in 16 at-bats. The long ball was the sixth of his career.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Scores twice in big win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns went 2-for-5 with an RBI single and two runs scored in Sunday's 18-5 win over Cleveland.

Wynns hasn't done much in three games since he took Chance Sisco's spot on the roster. The hits Sunday were his first two of the year. He should continue to back up Pedro Severino, although neither catcher has inspired much confidence with the bat so far.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Contract selected by Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns' contract was selected by the Orioles on Monday.

Wynns was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk in December but will now be available to make his first appearance in the majors since 2019. The 30-year-old has appeared in 15 minor-league games to begin the year and has slashed .333/.448/.563 with three home runs and nine RBI. He should serve as the backup to Pedro Severino after Chance Sisco was sent down as part of a corresponding move.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Cast off 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Orioles outrighted Wynns off their 40-man roster Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

None of MLB's other 29 teams put in a claim for Wynns after he was exposed to waivers, so he'll remain in the Orioles organization as a non-roster player for the time being. The soon-to-be 30-year-old catcher has seen scant action at the big-league level, appearing in 60 career games while slashing .239/.271/.339 in 192 plate appearances.

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.
