Santander will start Thursday's game against Cleveland, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Santander sat Wednesday due to ankle soreness, but the issue didn't seem to be a particularly serious one, which was confirmed by his quick return. He's still yet to really get going at the plate this season, but his .777 OPS in 24 games since returning from a trip to the injured list with a previous ankle problem is at least better than the .551 mark he posted in 16 games before suffering the injury.
Santander is out of the lineup Wednesday at Cleveland due to ankle soreness, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Santander started the past 23 games since returning from the injured list May 21, but manager Brandon Hyde wanted to get the outfielder "off his feet" Wednesday due to the ankle soreness. It doesn't appear to be a serious concern, and the 26-year-old should be considered day-to-day. DJ Stewart will start in left field, pushing Austin Hays to right for Baltimore.
Santander isn't in the lineup Wednesday against Cleveland, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Santander drew 23 straight starts after he returned from the injured list in late May, but he'll get a day off after he went 2-for-16 with a double, a run and seven strikeouts across the last four games. Austin Hays will shift to right field while DJ Stewart starts in left.
Santander went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double, a walk and an additional run scored during Tuesday's 10-3 win over the Mets.
The 26-year-old came around to score after hitting a double during the sixth inning, and he launched his fourth homer of the season during the eighth. Santander is 23-for-67 (.343 average) with two homers, nine doubles, eight RBI and nine runs in 17 games since returning from the left ankle sprain that sidelined him for a month.
Santander went 3-for-5 with a double, three RBI and two runs in Sunday's 18-5 win over Cleveland.
Santander had driven in just one run across his last 11 games, but his three RBI on Sunday led the Orioles during the blowout win. The 26-year-old is now hitting .269 with three home runs, 15 RBI and 12 runs this year.
Santander went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, a double, a walk and two additional runs in Saturday's 12-9 loss to the Nationals.
Making his second start since returning from a month-long absence due to an ankle injury, Santander made his presence felt in the heart of the Baltimore lineup. He'll hit out of the cleanup spot in Sunday's series finale while manning right field, and Santander looks poised to hold down a prominent slot in the batting order now that he's healthy again.
Santander (ankle) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday.
The 26-year-old has been sidelined by a sprained left ankle since April 20, and he'll rejoin the Orioles on Friday after spending a month on the injured list. Santander will attempt to rebound after a slow start to the season, as he has a .196/.230/.321 slash line through 62 plate appearances.
Santander (ankle) will return from the injured list Friday, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Santander will wind up missing exactly a month with his left ankle sprain. He struggled to a .551 OPS in 16 games before suffering the injury but looked good in his three rehab games for Double-A Bowie, going 4-for-12 with two walks and a homer.
Santander (ankle) has completed his rehab assignment with Triple-A Bowie and is expected to be activated during the Orioles' weekend series against the Nationals, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Santander struggled to a .196/.230/.321 slash line prior to spraining his left ankle, though that came in a small sample of just 16 games. He'll need a few days to clear COVID-19 protocols but isn't expected to miss much more time.
Santander (ankle) is expected to join the Orioles late next week, Steve Melewski of MASNSports.com reports.
The 26-year-old joined Double-A Bowie on Friday to begin his rehab assignment, and he'll play a few games there before going through COVID-19 protocols in order to rejoin the Orioles. Assuming he avoids any setbacks or COVID complications, Santander should be activated during the latter stages of a three-game set versus the Rays or a weekend series against the Nationals.
Santander (ankle) will report to Double-A Bowie on Friday to begin a rehab assignment, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Since Santander's left ankle sprain has kept him on the shelf since April 20, he'll need to complete a handful of games in the minors before Baltimore is comfortable activating him. Look for Santander to get work in both the corner outfield and at designated hitter, with the Orioles likely to reinstate him once he's able to play a full nine innings defensively. Once Santander is reinstated, he'll likely take back an everyday role from DJ Stewart, who has stumbled to a .184/.319/.289 slash line on the season.
Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said Wednesday that Santander (ankle) has resumed running the bases at Baltimore's extended spring training facility in Florida, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Santander doesn't appear to have experienced any speed bumps since resuming on-field work a few days ago, so he should continue to gradually build up for full baseball activities over the next week or two before the Orioles assign him to an affiliate for a rehab assignment. If Santander avoids any further setbacks with his sprained left ankle, he could make his return from the 10-day injured list before the end of the month.
Santander (ankle) will start baseball activity very shortly and will likely return in one or two weeks, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
The outfielder landed on the injured list on April 21 after spraining his left ankle. Santander was in a 2-for-18 slump at the time of the injury, but he started the season strong and has been a consistent presence in the Orioles' lineup the past two seasons.
Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said Sunday that Santander (ankle) is on schedule with his rehab program and could soon resume baseball activities, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Santander is beginning to see the swelling in his sprained left ankle subside, so he'll likely be ready to begin some light on-field work during the upcoming week before gradually ramping up to full-speed activities. Hyde previously mentioned late May as the target date for Santander's return, and that timeline doesn't appear to have changed.
Manager Brandon Hyde said Wednesday that Santander (ankle) is improving, but the Orioles don't expect the 26-year-old to return from the 10-day injured list for another three weeks, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.
When Santander was placed on the 10-day IL on April 21 with a left ankle sprain, he was handed a loose 2-to-4-week timeline for a return. Since Santander has yet to resume baseball activities over the past week, Hyde believes the switch-hitter's recovery from the ankle sprain will end up reaching the longer side of that timetable. Santander's absence should continue to open up regular at-bats for all of Austin Hays, DJ Stewart and Ryan Mountcastle at designated hitter and the two corner-outfield spots.
Santander (ankle) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.
Santander's move to the injured list was expected after manager Brandon Hyde said that the right fielder will miss 2-to-4 weeks due to a sprained left ankle. Ryan McKenna was recalled in a corresponding move and will start in right field during Wednesday's game against the Marlins, while Austin Hays and DJ Stewart could see an increase in playing time while Santander is sidelined.
Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said Wednesday that Santander is expected to miss 2-to-4 weeks after an MRI confirmed that he sustained a sprained left ankle in Tuesday's game against the Marlins, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Santander will likely be moved to the 10-day injured list prior to Wednesday's series finale in Miami, but Hyde sounded encouraged by the results of the 26-year-old's tests, given that the Orioles feared he might have fractured the ankle. Baltimore will wait and see how Santander's ankle responds to rest before clearing him to resume baseball activities, likely at some point in early-to-mid May. Santander's absence should clear the way for both Austin Hays and DJ Stewart to handle everyday roles in the corner outfield.
Santander (ankle) had X-rays come back negative and will undergo an MRI after exiting Tuesday's game at Miami, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Santander appears to have avoided a fracture, and the MRI should help determine the specifics of the injury, which was initially diagnosed as a right ankle sprain. The 26-year-old seems likely to sit out Wednesday's series finale, which would give him two straight days to recover with Thursday's scheduled off day.
Santander was diagnosed with a sprained left ankle after leaving Tuesday's game against the Marlins, Steve Melewski of MASNSports.com reports.
The 26-year-old suffered the injury on a pickoff move at first base following his first-inning single and was promptly helped off the field. Santander should be considered day-to-day for the time being, and it would make sense for him to sit out for Wednesday's series finale at minimum with a scheduled off day to follow Thursday.
Santander was removed from Tuesday's game at Miami with an apparent left leg injury, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.
The 26-year-old hit a single during the first inning but was helped off the field after suffering the injury on a pickoff play at first base. Santander was unable to put much weight on his left leg as he exited the field, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see him at least sit for Wednesday's series finale, especially with a scheduled off day to follow Thursday.
