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

Hays isn't in the lineup for Monday's game against Cleveland, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Hays will get a breather after he went 0-for-10 with a run, a walk and six strikeouts across the last three games. DJ Stewart will start in left field and bat fourth.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays (undisclosed) is starting in center field and batting fifth Sunday against the Rays, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Manager Brendan Hyde seemed to hint that Hays may have gotten dinged up during Saturday's loss, but the outfielder appears to be fine for Sunday's series finale. He'll shift to center field as Cedric Mullins gets the day off.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Possibly dealing with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Brandon Hyde said following Saturday's loss to the Rays that Hays may have tweaked something late in the game, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.

Hyde wasn't especially specific, noting that he did not know all the details regarding the possible injury. Hays returned from a hamstring strain Friday, but it's not clear if this potential issue is related to the previous injury. Further update on Hays will likely be given later Saturday or early Sunday.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Kept quiet in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays (hamstring) went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Friday's 4-2 loss to Tampa Bay.

Hays missed nearly three weeks with the hamstring injury. He's the favorite for playing time in left field going forward. The 25-year-old has an unremarkable .244/.309/.441 slash line with five home runs, 15 RBI and 24 runs scored across 141 plate appearances. Despite the three-strikeout effort Friday, he's only striking out at a reasonable 21.3 percent rate.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Starting in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays (hamstring) is starting in left field during his return from the injured list Friday against the Rays, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Hays was activated from the injured list earlier Friday and he'll be immediately inserted into the middle of Baltimore's lineup as the left fielder. Hays hit .252/.455/.774 with five homers and 15 RBI before landing on the IL on May 26.

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

Hays (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday.

The 25-year-old has been sidelined since May 23 with a strained left hamstring, but he'll rejoin the active roster Friday. Hays has a .252/.319/.455 slash line with five homers in 32 games this season, and he should reclaim the starting job in left field now that he's healthy.

Orioles' Austin Hays: With team for weekend series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays (hamstring) will join the Orioles for their weekend series against the Rays, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Hays was placed on the injured list May 26 but began a rehab assignment earlier this week. Ryan McKenna was optioned to Triple-A on Thursday, which could signify that Hays' activation is imminent barring any setbacks.

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

Hays (hamstring) went 1-for-3 with a solo home run while on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Hays has been out since May 24 with a left hamstring strain, but his presence on a rehab assignment suggests he is getting closer to a return. The outfielder may need another game or two with Norfolk, but he could be activated for this weekend's series in Tampa.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Resumes running
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays (hamstring) has started his running progressions, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Hays has been on the injured list since May 26 due to a strained left hamstring, and he's now making some progress in his recovery. Manager Brandon Hyde is hopeful that the outfielder will be able to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Norfolk next week and return to the Orioles later in the week.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Hays had missed the last two games due to a left hamstring strain and wasn't expected to return to the lineup for Wednesday's series finale in Minnesota. The outfielder will have additional time to recover, but it's not yet clear whether he'll spend more than the minimum of 10 days on the injured list. Ryan McKenna was recalled by the Orioles in a corresponding move, while DJ Stewart could serve as the primary left fielder in Hays' absence.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Likely unavailable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays (hamstring) isn't expected to be available Wednesday against the Twins, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Hays sat out Monday's and Tuesday's contests with left hamstring tightness, and he's not expected to be back in the lineup Wednesday. Baltimore may need to make a roster move for outfield depth with Ryan Mountcastle (hand) also potentially unavailable after being hit by a pitch Tuesday.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Remains out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays (hamstring) is not starting Tuesday's game against the Twins.

Ryan Mountcastle gets the start in left field as Hays continues to deal with left hamstring tightness. Hays provided some pop to the Orioles' lineup with four homers in the first month of play in 2021, but he has gone deep just once since May 2.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Dealing with hamstring tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays isn't in the lineup Monday against the Twins due to left hamstring tightness, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.

Hays is on the bench for the second time in the last three games, and manager Brandon Hyde revealed that the outfielder is managing a hamstring issue. However, Hyde didn't sound too concerned about the injury, so Hays should be considered day-to-day. The 25-year-old will be available off the bench if needed Monday, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Takes seat Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays isn't starting Monday's game against the Twins, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Hays went 2-for-4 with a run Sunday, but he'll retreat to the bench for the second time in the last three games. DJ Stewart will start in left field and bat sixth.

May 22, 2021 01:56 PM
Orioles' Austin Hays: On bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Nationals, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

The Orioles will have one less regular than usual with the series being played in a National League park. Ryan Mountcastle, the team's primary designated hitter, will get the start in left field, pushing Hays to the bench.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Launches home run in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Yankees.

Hays' only hit of the night came in the first when he took Corey Kluber deep to left to even the game at 1-1. It was his fifth home run of the year as he's already surpassed his total from 2020 in 28 fewer plate appearances. Overall, the 25-year-old is slashing .250/.314/.479 with 13 RBI and 19 runs scored.

Orioles' Austin Hays: On base four times Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays went 3-for-4 with a double, two singles and a walk in Friday's 6-2 loss to Boston.

Hays did well to keep the line moving, but he wasn't able to make his way all the way around the bases. The 25-year-old outfielder lifted his slash line to .260/.316/.479 in 80 plate appearances this season. He has four home runs, 10 RBI, 14 runs scored and no stolen bases in 19 games. Hays has not gone more than one game without a hit when healthy -- while he's not showing remarkable power, his consistency should keep him near the top of Baltimore's order.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Pops homer in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and an additional run scored in Sunday's 7-5 loss to Oakland.

Hays hit a solo shot in the third inning. He also got aboard in the fifth inning with a single and scored on a Trey Mancini single. Hays is hitting .250/.300/.500 with four home runs, 10 RBI and 12 runs scored across 15 games. The 25-year-old outfielder has yet to attempt a stolen base this season.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Plates two runs Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays went 1-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in Saturday's win over the Athletics.

Hays has hit safely in three straight games, but he has gone six contests without recording more than one knock. He only has two multi-hit appearances this season, though, and the 25-year-old is only hitting .231 with a .715 OPS as a result.

Orioles' Austin Hays: Slams third homer Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hays went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 3-2 win over the Athletics.

Hays was the latter of back-to-back home runs off Mike Fiers with two outs in the third inning. The outfielder also recorded an RBI two games in a row for the first time this season. His average is just .234 to start the year. His 27.5 percent strikeout rate likely has something to do with that, and he has struck out at least once in all but three of his games so far.
