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.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Resumes batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns (oblique) was cleared for on-field batting practice Friday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Wynns has been hitting in the batting cage throughout the week as he recovers from a left oblique issue. The 28-year-old has been out of action for a little over a week, but appears to be nearing his return to spring games.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Working back from oblique issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns (oblique) will ramp up his throwing Sunday and will swing a bat sometime next week, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Wynns suggested Thursday that he would be back in the lineup within a few days, but it appears he'll need a bit more time. He'll need to get back in action soon if he's to hold off Jesus Sucre and Carlos Perez for the backup catcher job.

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

Wynns (oblique) said Thursday that a recent MRI returned negative and indicated that he expects to rejoin the Orioles' Grapefruit League lineup within a few days, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Wynns tweaked his oblique in batting practice earlier this week and has been held out of the lineup the past couple days for what he described as precautionary reasons. The Orioles will bar him from swinging over the next couple days so as to avoid the injury, but assuming he heals as anticipated, the backstop should be ready to play again by next week. He's likely competing for non-roster invitees Jesus Sucre and Carlos Perez for the No. 2 job with Chance Sisco turning in a massive spring thus far to cement his spot atop the depth chart.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Nursing oblique issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Brandon Hyde said Wednesday that Wynns is dealing with a sore oblique and will likely be unavailable to play the next few days, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.

While the oblique issue doesn't sound like anything that will force Wynns to begin the season on the injured list, it may hurt his odds of break camp with the big club. Wynns' setback strengthens the hot-hitting Chance Sisco's spot atop the depth chart while potentially opening the door for non-roster players Jesus Sucre, Carlos Perez and Andrew Susac to emerge as the No. 2 option behind the dish.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Sitting for season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Astros.

Wynns has alternated starts each of the last seven games and is 4-for-12 with two walks in his last 14 plate appearances. The 27-year-old has a .255/.287/.382 slash line in 110 at-bats this season. Caleb Joseph will start behind the plate and bat ninth for the Orioles.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: On bench for Game 1 vs. Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader versus Houston, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Wynns will head to the bench after going 1-for-3 with two strikeouts Friday. In his place, Caleb Joseph will catch Dylan Bundy and bat ninth.

Orioles' Austin Wynns: Hits bench for Game 2 of twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wynns is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Red Sox, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Wynns will sit for the second half of Wednesday's twin bill after catching all nine innings during Game 1, going 1-for-3 with a walk. Caleb Joseph will start behind the dish and hit ninth in his stead.
