Orioles' Austin Hays: Could serve as leadoff hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays could serve as Baltimore's leadoff hitter once the season begins, Roch Kubatko of reports.

Although Hays didn't have the most impressive spring as he hit .179/.273/.286 with three extra-base hits and seven strikeouts over 33 plate appearances, he's still likely on track to start the season as the Orioles' center fielder and their leadoff hitter. The 24-year-old only appeared in 21 major-league games last season, but he managed to record a .373 on-base percentage with four home runs and 13 RBI.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Sitting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays is not in Saturday's lineup against the Red Sox.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Hits two home runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays went 3-for-8 with two home runs, five RBI and a stolen base Monday in an 11-10 loss to the Blue Jays.

Hays hit a three-run shot in the third inning and added a solo home run in the fifth frame. Hays has hit all four of his home runs in the last five games. The 24-year-old is now hitting .314/.364/.627 through 16 games this season.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Smacks two-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays went 1-for-6 with a two-run homer against the Mariners on Saturday.

It was hardly a standout performance from Hays, though he made his only hit count as he tied the game in the eighth inning with his second long ball of the season. He's now riding a four-game hitting streak, though he's recorded multiple hits in just one of those contests.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orioles' Austin Hays: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays is not in the lineup Sunday against the Tigers, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Hays hits the bench after starting four of the last six games. He's gone 5-for-18 with a pair of doubles since getting called up in early September. Anthony Santander starts in center field Sunday.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Called up by Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays was recalled by the Orioles on Saturday.

Reports from the start of September stated that Hays would head to the Arizona Fall League instead of joining the Orioles' big-league roster. The team evidently changed plans, so Hays will get a few major-league opportunities over the final few weeks of the season before heading to the AFL in October.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Won't be September callup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays won't be called up by the Orioles this month and will instead head to the Arizona Fall League, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Hays made his big-league debut with a 20-game stint back in 2017 but has endured two injury-filled seasons since then. Still just 24 years old, he's posted a mediocre .255/.306/.460 slash line (good for a 91 wRC+) in 58 games for Triple-A Norfolk this season.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Returns from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays (hamstring) was activated off the 7-day injured list Thursday.

Hays began a rehab assignment at Low-A Aberdeen last week and went 5-for-18 with two doubles and two home runs in five games. The 24-year-old has played only 11 games with Triple-A Norfolk this season after suffering a thumb sprain in spring training.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays (hamstring) went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Thursday on a rehab assignment with Low-A Aberdeen.

Hays landed on the minor-league injured list June 22 with a hamstring injury but is nearing his return after a brief absence. The 24-year-old figures to rejoin Triple-A Norfolk next week after the All-Star break.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Out with hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays landed on the 7-day injured list with Triple-A Norfolk due to a hamstring injury Saturday, Joe Trezza of reports.

Hays has already missed around two months this season due to a sprained thumb. It's not clear how much time he's supposed to miss with the hamstring issue. He's only played 10 games for Triple-A Norfolk so far this season.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Advances to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays was promoted to Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Hays' start to the season was delayed by a thumb sprain. He'll head to Triple-A for the first time despite a mediocre .226/.277/.441 slash line in 23 games at the High-A and Double-A levels. The 23-year-old has a good shot at getting some big-league at-bats this season if he impresses for Norfolk.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Getting in groove
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays (thumb) went 5-for-15 (.333) with a home run and three RBI over his last four games with Double-A Bowie.

Hays missed nearly the first six weeks of the season with his thumb injury, but he has played regularly since making his debut May 14, first with High-A Frederick and recently with Double-A Bowie. Hays has hit well in his most recent stop and could see Triple-A action at Norfolk for the first time before long.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Rehab moves to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays (thumb) moved up to Double-A Bowie on Thursday to continue his rehab assignment, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

His rehab stint with High-A Frederick got off to a slow start (2-for-23 with six strikeouts over his first six games), but he went 4-for-14 with two home runs over his last three games. The center-field job at the big-league level will be waiting for him later this summer once he is able to knock the rust off and get into a groove at Triple-A.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Moving rehab to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays (thumb) will join High-A Frederick to begin a rehab assignment, Rich Dubroff of reports.

Hays has been playing games at extended spring training since May 3 as he continues his recovery from the left thumb sprain. The 23-year-old will likely play at least a few games with the Keys before coming off the minor-league injured list and heading to Triple-A Norfolk.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Sees first game action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays (thumb) played center field for six innings during a game at extended spring training Friday, Joe Trezza of reports.

It was Hays' first game action since he suffered the sprained left thumb on a slide attempt just before the start of the regular season. The 23-year-old will likely need a multiple-game rehab stint following the spring training games before joining Triple-A Norfolk.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Nearing game action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays (thumb) is close to playing in games at extended spring training, Rich Dubroff of reports.

Hays has been on the shelf all season with a left thumb sprain. The outfielder began a hitting progression nearly two weeks ago and is finally ready to return to game action. Seeing as he's been sidelined for more than a month, Hays will likely require multiple rehab games before reporting to Triple-A Norfolk.

Orioles' Austin Hays: No longer needs splint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays had the splint removed from his sprained left thumb and recently began a hitting progression, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Hays has been sidelined for nearly a month with the thumb injury and will likely require multiple rehab games at extended spring training and/or the lower levels of the Orioles' minor-league system before reporting to Triple-A Norfolk. Once he's back at Norfolk, Hays may not have to wait long for a promotion to the big leagues if he performs well in his initial International League action.

Orioles' Austin Hays: MRI reveals mild sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays' MRI on his left thumb revealed a mild sprain, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Hays suffered the injury sliding into a base Saturday in minor-league action. He'll miss some time, but general manager Mike Elias says that his absence will be a matter of weeks, not months.

March 24, 2019 10:48 PM
Orioles' Austin Hays: Heading for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays will undergo an MRI within the next couple of days after injuring his left thumb Saturday, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.

Hays sustained the injury while sliding into a base Saturday during a minor-league game. The 23-year-old was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk last Sunday despite a hot spring training, though his stay in the minors wasn't guaranteed to be long. The Orioles' outfield depth at Triple-A could take a real hit if Hays faces a significant absence following the team's trade of Mike Yastrzemski to the Giants.
