  • Orioles' Ryan O'Hearn: Gets breather against lefty

    O'Hearn isn't in Baltimore's lineup for Saturday's game against Kansas City.

    The left-handed bat of O'Hearn will sit down Saturday as the Royals send fellow lefty Cole Ragans to the mound. His absence will move Adley Rutschman into the DH spot while James McCann starts behind the plate and bats eighth.

  • Orioles' Cedric Mullins: Takes seat against lefty

    Mullins isn't in Baltimore's lineup for Saturday's game against the Royals.

    Southpaw Cole Ragans will toe the slab for Kansas City to begin Saturday's contest, so the lefty-hitting Mullins will retreat to the dugout while Jorge Mateo starts in center field and bats ninth.

  • Orioles' Colton Cowser: Resting versus LHP

    Cowser isn't in the Orioles' lineup for Saturday's game against the Royals.

    Cowser will get a breather Saturday with the Orioles slated to face left-hander Cole Ragans. Austin Hays will get the nod in left field, batting sixth.

  • Orioles' Jackson Holliday: Not starting against lefty

    Holliday isn't in the Orioles' lineup for Saturday's game against the Royals.

    With left-hander Cole Ragans set to start on the hill for Kansas City, Holliday will start Saturday's game on the bench. Jordan Westburg will move over to cover second base, allowing Ramon Urias to pick up a start at third while batting seventh.

  • Orioles' Adley Rutschman: Hits grand slam in defeat

    Rutschman went 3-for-5 with a grand slam during Friday's loss to the Royals.

    While the rest of Baltimore's lineup was unable to find consistent success against the Royals, Rutschman accounted for three of the team's eight hits, and his seventh-inning slam was the only way the Orioles were able to put runs on the board. The 26-year-old backstop is now 7-for-21 across his last five games and remains one of the more reliable offensive catchers in baseball.

  • Orioles' Dean Kremer: Hit with second loss

    Kremer (0-2) took the loss Friday against Kansas City, allowing three earned runs on two hits and three walks while striking out three batters across 5.2 frames.

    Kremer held Baltimore off the scoreboard until Vinnie Pasquantino took him deep during the fourth inning. The score was still 1-0 when Kremer left the game in the sixth with two runners on base -- both of whom came around to score -- and a failed late rally by the Orioles' offense forced the right-hander to take his second loss of the young season. His performance Friday was certainly better than his previous outing against Milwaukee, and he's lined up for another chance to pick up his first win Wednesday against the Angels.

  • Orioles' Kyle Bradish: Continuing rehab in Triple-A

    Bradish (elbow) will make his next rehab start with Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday, Jacob Calvin Meyer of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Bradish made his first rehab appearance Tuesday with Double-A Bowie. He threw 44 pitches and allowed just one hit over three scoreless innings while striking out four. Bradish will now move up to Triple-A Norfolk, as the right-hander continues his rehab from a partial UCL tear that kept him from pitching in spring training.

  • Orioles' David Banuelos: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Banuelos cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk on Friday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    He's no longer on the Orioles' 40-man roster but will remain in the organization. Banuelos made his major-league debut earlier this week, flying out in a pinch-hitting appearance.

  • Orioles' Colton Cowser: Picks up third steal

    Cowser went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Twins.

    Cowser's power has come back down with no home runs over his last three games, but he's still hitting well, going 3-for-11 in that span. The outfielder is slashing .400/.429/.800 with four homers, three steals, 15 RBI, eight runs scored and six doubles over 49 plate appearances. Cowser's continued success will likely mean that Austin Hays remains in a bench role, though manager Brandon Hyde has had no trouble resting his other outfielders to keep Cowser in the lineup so far.

  • Orioles' Anthony Santander: Goes deep Wednesday

    Santander went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Twins.

    Santander has gone 3-for-18 over his last five contests. That's not a great stretch, but so far, he's in little danger of losing playing time as manager Brandon Hyde gets creative to keep Colton Cowser in the lineup. Santander is batting .203 with four homers, 15 RBI, nine runs scored, two doubles and no stolen bases through 74 plate appearances as the Orioles' primary right fielder.

  • Orioles' Gunnar Henderson: Keeps slugging Wednesday

    Henderson went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Twins.

    Henderson has six homers on the year, including one in each of the last three games. He's also posted four straight multi-hit efforts. The shortstop is thriving as the leadoff hitter in a strong offense, slashing .288/.346/.603 with four stolen bases, 15 RBI and 13 runs scored through 18 contests overall.

  • Orioles' Cedric Mullins: Walks off Twins

    Mullins went 1-for-4 with a walk-off, two-run home run during Wednesday's 4-2 win against the Twins.

    Mullins extended his hit streak to nine games and has clubbed homers in three of the past four contests. The 29-year-old has rebounded from a poor start to the season and has a .259/.308/.552 slash line with five home runs, three steals, 15 RBI and 14 runs through 17 games.

  • Orioles' Craig Kimbrel: Earns third win

    Kimbel (3-0) earned the win Wednesday against the Twins after he retired all three batters he faced in the ninth inning. He had one strikeout.

    The veteran right-hander entered for the top of the ninth in a 2-2 tie and retired the side in order on 12 pitches, and he picked up the win when Cedric Mullins launched a walk-off homer in the bottom of the frame. Kimbrel allowed a run in his season debut but has since delivered seven straight scoreless appearances, and he has a 0.29 WHIP and 12:0 K:BB with four saves and two wins during that stretch.

  • Orioles' Albert Suarez: Fires 5.2 scoreless frames

    Suarez allowed three hits and no walks over 5.2 scoreless innings during Wednesday's 4-2 win versus Minnesota. He struck out four and didn't factor in the decision.

    The 34-year-old was a surprise selection to start Tuesday, which was his first MLB appearance since 2017, but he pitched well with 14 swinging strikes on 75 pitches and allowed just four baserunners. According to Jake Rill of MLB.com, manager Brandon Hyde said Suarez will get additional turns through the rotation, which isn't a major surprise given his performance and the numerous injuries Baltimore is managing to its rotation.

  • Orioles' Kyle Bradish: Sharp in first rehab start

    Bradish (elbow) yielded just one hit and struck out four over three scoreless innings in his first rehab start with Double-A Bowie on Tuesday.

    Bradish needed just 44 pitches to cruise through his three frames and was hitting 95-to-96 mph on the radar gun, per Steve Melewski of MASNSports.com. It's a terrific first step for the right-hander as he works his way back from a partial UCL tear in his right elbow. Bradish will need a handful of rehab outings before rejoining the Orioles' rotation.

  • Orioles' Albert Suarez: Draws start Wednesday

    The Orioles selected Suarez's contract from Triple-A Norfolk and will have him start Wednesday's game against the Twins at Camden Yards.

    Suarez will be making his first appearance in the majors since 2017, when he tossed 31.2 innings out of San Francisco's bullpen. He had spent the last five seasons overseas in Japan and Korea before making his return to affiliated ball this winter, when he signed a minor-league deal with Baltimore. Though he didn't secure a spot on Baltimore's Opening Day roster, Suarez didn't have to wait long for a call-up while logging a 5.87 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 17:1 K:BB in 15.1 innings over three appearances (one start) for Norfolk. He'll be stepping into the rotation spot that opened up after Tyler Wells (elbow) was placed on the injured list, but Suarez may be in line for just one start before heading back to the minors. John Means (elbow) is set to make the fourth start of his rehab assignment Wednesday and could be ready to return from the IL when the Wells/Suarez spot in the Baltimore rotation comes up again next week.
