Top Orioles News

  • Orioles' John Means: Continuing rehab assignment

    Means (forearm) is making a rehab start with Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.comreports.

    The veteran left-hander recorded just one out and threw 34 pitches in his previous rehab outing, so he'll look to get back on track and build up his workload Tuesday. Means could require an additional rehab start before joining the Orioles, which would mean his season debut wouldn't come before the end of April.

  • Orioles' Enrique Bradfield: Lands on injured list

    Bradfield was placed on the injured list at High-A Aberdeen on Tuesday with an apparent head injury, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports.

    The 22-year-old suffered the injury Saturday as he was hit in the head by a tag on a slide into home plate. It's unclear how long Bradfield is expected to be sidelined, but he'll be on the shelf for at least the next week.

  • Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Remains out Tuesday

    Mountcastle (knee) isn't in the Orioles' lineup for Tuesday's game against the Angels.

    Knee soreness kept Mountcastle from playing in Monday's contest, though manager Brandon Hyde said the 27-year-old was available off the bench for that game. He will remain in the dugout once again Tuesday, allowing Ryan O'Hearn to start at first base while Anthony Santander serves as Baltimore's DH and Heston Kjerstad covers right field.

  • Orioles' David Banuelos: Sent to Triple-A

    The Orioles optioned Banuelos to Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday.

    The 27-year-old had his contract selected by Baltimore on Monday but was only with the big club one day as prospect Heston Kjerstad was promoted Tuesday. Banuelos isn't likely to receive another look with the Orioles if Adley Rutschman and James McCann stay healthy.

  • Orioles' Heston Kjerstad: Promotion made official

    The Orioles recalled Kjerstad from Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday.

    Kjerstad had gotten off to an unbelievable start at Norfolk this season, slashing .349/.431/.744 with 10 home runs over 21 contests. It could be tricky finding consistent playing time for Kjerstad given the Orioles' bevy of options, but the left-handed batter will certainly be in the mix for starts between designated hitter, the corner outfield spots and first base against right-handed pitching.

  • Orioles' Colton Cowser: Continues early-season success

    Cowser went 1-for-4 with a solo home run against the Angels in a 4-2 win Monday.

    Cowser accounted for Baltimore's final run with a seventh-inning solo shot off Reid Detmers. It was the young slugger's sixth long ball of the campaign and his second in as many games. Cowser looked lost facing major-league batting for the first time last season, posting a .115/.286/.148 slash line with a 28.6 percent strikeout rate over 77 plate appearances. He's turned things around dramatically to start this season, however, recording a .364/.400/.800 slash line along with 12 extra-base hits, 10 runs, 17 RBI and three thefts through 60 plate appearances.

  • Orioles' James McCann: Hits first homer

    McCann went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 4-2 victory versus the Angels.

    With Adley Rutschman resting his legs as the Orioles' DH, McCann got a start behind the plate and accounted for the team's first run with a second-inning solo blast. The veteran backstop has notched at least one hit in seven of the 10 games in which he's appeared, compiling a .265/.265/.412 slash line, five runs and five RBI. That works just fine for a backup catcher, but McCann doesn't figure to be a viable option in most fantasy formats with Rutschman staked to the lead role behind the plate for the Orioles for the foreseeable future.

  • Orioles' Jorge Mateo: Swipes two bags Monday

    Mateo went 0-for-3 with a walk, a run and two stolen bases in Monday's 4-2 win against the Angels.

    Mateo made his second start in three games and used his legs to help the Orioles score their second run, following a third-inning walk with a pair of thefts before coming home on an Adley Rutschman single. The performance was indicative of what Mateo brings to Baltimore -- he's an elite base stealer when he's able to reach, but with a career .224 batting average and .271 OBP, that doesn't happen enough to keep him in the lineup consistently. From a fantasy perspective, Mateo is most useful as a base-stealing specialist in leagues that allow daily lineup changes.

  • Orioles' Craig Kimbrel: Secures sixth save

    Kimbrel earned a save against the Angels on Monday, allowing a hit and a walk while striking out two batters over one scoreless inning.

    Kimbrel ran into some trouble in attempting to protect Baltimore's two-run ninth inning lead when he allowed the first two batters he faced to reach base. A one-out walk -- Kimbrel's first free pass of the campaign -- loaded the bases for Los Angeles, but the veteran closer got Nolan Schanuel to pop out before striking out Mike Trout looking to slam the door closed in dramatic fashion. Kimbrel is now 6-for-7 in save opportunities this season, and he's allowed just one earned run over 10 frames while racking up an impressive 16:1 K:BB.

  • Orioles' Albert Suarez: Unscored upon again in victory

    Suarez (1-0) earned the win over the Angels on Monday, allowing four hits and two walks while striking out five batters over 5.2 innings.

    Suarez got another turn in the rotation after holding Minnesota scoreless in his season debut Wednesday, and he turned in a very similar pitching line. The right-hander again completed 5.2 scoreless frames, this time getting enough run support to earn his first major-league win since 2016. Suarez has now completed 11.1 scoreless innings to begin the campaign, though his lack of previous big-league success makes it reasonable to question if he can sustain his effectiveness. It's worth noting that the right-hander pitched in Korea over the previous two campaigns, and though he wasn't exactly dominant, it's possible that tenure helped him uncover something that is helping with his approach to major-league hitters. Suarez appears set to stick in Baltimore's rotation for the time being, and he lines up for a favorable matchup against Oakland in his next projected start.

  • Orioles' Coby Mayo: Excelling at Triple-A

    Mayo is slashing .344/.388/.656 with seven home runs, 19 RBI, three stolen bases and 18 runs scored over 21 games this season at Triple-A Norfolk.

    Mayo has been one of a few talented Baltimore prospects to dominate so far this season for the Tides, and with Heston Kjerstad expected to get the call to the big leagues Tuesday, Mayo's opportunity may not be far away. Jackson Holliday is now 1-for-30 in the first nine big-league games of his career, so it wouldn't be a shock to see Mayo get a chance if Holliday isn't able to turn things around soon.

  • Orioles' Heston Kjerstad: Set for Tuesday promotion

    Kjerstad is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday, Jacob Calvin Meyer of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Kjerstad could have difficulty seeing consistent playing time on a talented Baltimore roster, but he figures to get chances in the DH slot as well as in the corner outfield spots when his name is listed on the lineup card. Kjerstad has been mashing with the Tides, slashing .349/.431/.744 with 10 home runs, 30 RBI, one stolen base and 25 runs in 86 at-bats.

  • Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Nursing sore knee

    Mountcastle isn't in the lineup for Monday's game against the Angels due to knee soreness, Steve Melewski of MASNSports.com reports.

    Skipper Brandon Hyde noted the team is holding Mountcastle out of the lineup in the series opener simply as a precaution. Hyde also stated that the first baseman will be available off the bench Monday if the situation arises.

  • Orioles' Peyton Burdick: Booted from 40-man roster

    Burdick was designated for assignment Monday.

    Burdick was removed from the 40-man roster to make room for David Banuelos, who had his contract selected from Triple-A Norfolk on Monday. Burdick has appeared in 16 games this season for the Tides, slashing .182/.333/.455 with four homers, nine RBI, one stolen base and 11 runs.

  • Orioles' David Banuelos: Joins major-league roster

    Banuelos had his contract selected from Triple-A Norfolk by the Orioles on Monday.

    Banuelos was optioned outright to Norfolk on Friday after clearing waivers, but he'll now return to the big-league roster. The catcher appeared in the team's 11-3 win over the Twins on April 16, failing to get on base in his only at-bat of the season. He'll replace Austin Hays (calf) on Baltimore's roster after Hays was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday, while outfielder Peyton Burdick was designated for assignment, opening a spot on the 40-man roster for Banuelos.

  • Orioles' Austin Hays: Lands on 10-day IL

    Hays (calf) was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday.

    Hays left Saturday's contest due to tightness in his calf, and after further evaluation, it's been determined that he'll require a trip to the injured list. Manager Brandon Hyde stated after the move that he's hopeful Hays will be ready to be activated from the IL by the time his 10 days are up, per Andy Kostka of TheBaltimoreBanner.com. David Banuelos had his contract selected from Triple-A Norfolk, and Peyton Burdick was designated for assignment in corresponding moves.

  • Orioles' Jackson Holliday: Sitting against southpaw

    Holliday is not in the lineup for Monday's game versus the Angels.

    Holliday has now been out of the lineup each of the three times the Orioles have faced a lefty since his promotion. The 20-year-old is not going to be a platoon player once he gets rolling at the plate, but it's not a surprise the club is electing to sit him versus southpaws given his 1-for-30 start at the plate. Jorge Mateo will be at the keystone Monday.

  • Orioles' Tyler Wells: Hoping for abbreviated absence

    Wells is without a timeline to resume throwing after being placed on the 15-day injured list Tuesday with right elbow inflammation, but manager Brandon Hyde said Saturday that he's optimistic the right-hander will avoid an extended absence, MLB.com reports.

    Hyde suggested that Wells' placement on the IL was for precautionary reasons after the 29-year-old experienced discomfort in his elbow following his most recent outing April 12. Given that he hasn't been diagnosed with anything more than inflammation, Wells should be in store for a brief shutdown before he starts throwing again, but since he has yet to do so just under a week after being placed on the IL, he's still likely to miss more than the minimum 15 days. Wells is one of three Orioles starters on the IL at the moment, but he appears to be the furthest away from being activated since John Means (forearm) and Kyle Bradish (elbow) are already in the midst of rehab assignments.
