  • Orioles' Cedric Mullins: On strong side of platoon

    Mullins, who is leading off and starting in center field Tuesday against righty Alek Manoah and the Blue Jays, has been out of the lineup for two straight games against lefties.

    Mullins had been operating as an everyday player for the season, leading off against lefties and righties, but he slipped to eighth in the order Aug. 8 against a lefty and was out of the order entirely against the two most recent lefties Baltimore has faced. Ryan McKenna has led off and started in center field on those two occasions. This season, Mullins has a .797 OPS against righties and a .568 OPS against southpaws.

  • Orioles' Austin Hays: Not starting Tuesday

    Hays is on the bench Tuesday against the Blue Jays, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Three consecutive hitless games have Hays slashing .194/.219/.323 in eight contests since the beginning of August. Terrin Vavra slides to left field Tuesday while Anthony Santander gets a night at designated hitter.

  • Orioles' Ryan McKenna: Doubles twice Monday

    McKenna went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles, an RBI and a run scored in Monday's 7-3 win over the Blue Jays.

    McKenna has found a bit of a groove in August, going 8-for-21 (.381) with a home run, three doubles, four RBI and three runs scored. The 25-year-old outfielder is up to a .271/.320/.398 slash line with two homers, 10 RBI, 20 runs and two steals through 130 plate appearances . He's started in center field and batted leadoff against the last three southpaws the Orioles have faced, so it appears McKenna could be starting to take a little bit of playing time away from Cedric Mullins. It's unlikely to develop into a platoon situation, but it's a way for manager Brandon Hyde to get McKenna's bat in the lineup while he's hot.

  • Orioles' Bryan Baker: Snags win Monday

    Baker (4-3) earned the win Monday, striking out two over 1.1 scoreless innings.

    Starter Kyle Bradish fell an out short of qualifying for the win, allowing Baker to pick up his first decision since July 4. Since the start of July, he's posted a solid 2.81 ERA with a 1.31 WHIP and 24:8 K:BB across 16 innings. He's kept opponents off the board in 15 of 18 appearances in that span. For the season, Baker owns a 4.10 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 53:20 K:BB with five holds and two blown saves in 48.1 innings. With Felix Bautista holding the closer role and Dillon Tate and Cionel Perez operating as setup men, Baker's middle-relief role hasn't changed much since Jorge Lopez was sent to the Twins at the trade deadline.

  • Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Continues to torment Toronto

    Mountcastle went 1-for-3 with two walks, a two-run home run and a second run scored in Monday's 7-3 win over the Blue Jays.

    The 25-year-old continued his career dominance of Toronto as he took Yusei Kikuchi deep in the third inning. Since making his big-league debut in 2020, Mountcastle has an absurd .360/.420/.744 slash line over 32 games against the Jays with 14 homers and 28 RBI, and this season he's been even more dangerous against them, going 13-for-28 (.464) over seven games with four doubles and five of his 16 home runs on the year.

  • Orioles' Kyle Bradish: Struggles to find plate Monday

    Bradish didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 7-3 win over the Blue Jays, giving up three runs on six hits and four walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out five.

    Baltimore handed the right-hander a 6-2 lead heading into the fifth inning, but Bradish couldn't hang around long enough to collect the win, getting the hook after tossing only 54 of 96 pitches for strikes. He hasn't lasted longer than 5.1 innings in any of his four starts since coming off the IL in late July, posting a 4.05 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 21:9 K:BB through 20 innings over that stretch while failing to record a decision in any of them.

  • Orioles' Rougned Odor: Riding pine Monday

    Odor isn't starting Monday against the Blue Jays, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Odor started the last five games and went 8-for-19 with a homer, five RBI, three runs and a stolen base over that stretch. Terrin Vavra will take over at the keystone while Tyler Nevin serves as the designated hitter.

  • Orioles' Cedric Mullins: Not in Monday's lineup

    Mullins isn't starting Monday against the Blue Jays, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Mullins went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts Sunday against Tampa Bay and will be out of the lineup for the second time in the last three games. Ryan McKenna is starting in center field and leading off.

  • Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Returns to lineup

    Mountcastle (hand) is starting Monday against the Blue Jays, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Mountcastle sat out Sunday's game against the Rays due to a left hand issue, but he'll start at first base and bat cleanup Monday. Over his last five games, he's gone 5-for-19 with a homer, two doubles, three runs and three RBI.

  • Orioles' Dillon Tate: Working in bridge role

    Tate has given up three earned runs on three hits with three strikeouts and zero walks in four innings across four appearances since the Orioles sent closer Jorge Lopez to the Twins at the trade deadline.

    Tate, Felix Bautista and Cionel Perez were named as candidates to see save chances by manager Brandon Hyde following Lopez's departure, but Bautista has converted all three of the team's save opportunities since the deal. Tate has two saves and 12 holds this season, though he hasn't added to either total in over a month. Perez appears locked in as the primary setup option, but Tate should continue to see high-leverage work given his 2.56 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 46:10 K:BB over 52.2 frames.

  • Orioles' Cionel Perez: Remains in setup role

    Perez continues to operate as a setup man and has a win and two holds over 4.1 scoreless innings since Baltimore sent closer Jorge Lopez to Minnesota at the trade deadline.

    Manager Brandon Hyde initially indicated Perez, Felix Bautista and Dillon Tate would be in the mix for save opportunities after Lopez's departure, but it's Bautista who has received and successfully converted all three of the team's save chances since the trade. Overall Perez has one save and 17 holds with a 1.12 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 40:15 K:BB across 40.1 innings this year, and he should continue to work in a setup role while Bautista remains effective and healthy.

  • Orioles' Jordan Lyles: Fans nine in loss

    Lyles (9-9) took the loss Sunday in Tampa Bay, allowing four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out nine in 4.1 innings.

    Lyles is not known as someone to rack up strikeouts, but he punched out a season-high nine batters Sunday, including five in the first two innings. Randy Arozarena knocked a three-run homer to put the Rays on the board in the third, and Lyles was removed in the fifth inning with one out and two on. Since the beginning of July, the 31-year-old has a 3.60 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 44:17 K:BB while allowing nine homers in 50 innings across nine starts. His next start will likely be at the end of the week against Boston.

  • Orioles' Alexander Wells: Moving rehab to Double-A

    Wells (elbow) is shifting his rehab from the FCL to Double-A Bowie on Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Wells struck out two in a perfect inning Tuesday with the Orioles' rookie-ball affiliate. That's enough to get him up to Double-A, where he'll likely still need multiple appearances before he might be cleared to rejoin the big-league roster.

  • Orioles' Rougned Odor: Notches third steal

    Odor went 2-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's 8-2 loss to the Rays.

    Odor was at risk of losing playing time to Terrin Vavra earlier in the week, but the former has responded with three multi-hit efforts in his last four games. Through 100 contests overall, Odor is slashing .208/.269/.381 with 11 home runs, three steals, 42 RBI and 39 runs scored. He should stick in the lineup against most right-handed pitchers as well as some lefties.

  • Orioles' Terrin Vavra: On bench again Sunday

    Vavra is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    The 25-year-old sat out Saturday with lefty Shane McClanahan pitching for Tampa Bay, and he'll remain on the bench Sunday with right-hander Drew Rasmussen on the mound. Vavra had his contract selected by Baltimore in late July and has a .323/.405/.419 slash line with six RBI and five runs through his first 13 big-league contests.
