Chris Davis out for year after hip surgery

May 19, 2021

BALTIMORE -- Chris Davis has yet to play for the Orioles in 2021. He won’t.

Dr. Mark Muller performed the operation in Dallas,

Galvis dealing with sore left adductor/groin

Orioles add Valaika for middle-infield depth, option OF McKenna
April 27, 2021

Freddy Galvis has been the Orioles' most durable player in the early going, starting each of their 22 games at shortstop, including Monday's 4-2 win over the Yankees. But that streak is nearing its conclusion. Galvis was removed with left adductor/groin soreness before the top of the third inning Monday,

Notes: Akin's kitchen mishap; alt. site update

April 24, 2021

Two factors played into the Orioles’ decision to tab veteran lefty Wade LeBlanc for Saturday’s start against the A’s: LeBlanc’s vast experience -- having started 120 games across 13 big league seasons, including six for the Orioles in 2020 -- as well as an injury to a top prospect at

Santander to IL (ankle); McKenna recalled

April 21, 2021

The Orioles welcomed one outfielder, Austin Hays, back from the injured list on Tuesday against the Marlins, but they quickly lost another. Baltimore is bracing to be without Anthony Santander for at least several weeks after the right fielder suffered a left ankle sprain early in its 7-5 victory over

Notes: Outlook for offense; Hays on mend

April 16, 2021

One of the reasons the Orioles lost eight out of 10 games entering Friday is because of a sputtering offense. The Orioles entered the weekend 25th in the Major Leagues in batting average (.218) and 28th in OPS (.641). They were 23-for-100 with runners in scoring position. Orioles manager Brandon

O's activate DJ Stewart off injured list

April 11, 2021

The Orioles bolstered their outfield depth on Saturday by activating DJ Stewart from the 10-day injured list. Sidelined since March 5 with a left hamstring strain, Stewart went 1-for-3 with a double and walk in his Saturday return to the lineup in the O's 6-4 loss to the Red Sox

Hays to IL (hamstring); McKenna arrives

April 5, 2021

The Orioles arrived at Yankee Stadium on Monday riding high after their opening-series sweep of the Red Sox, but under the realization they’ll need to press forward without one of their most dynamic players. The club placed Austin Hays on the 10-day injured list prior to Monday’s series opener, one

Hays exits in third with hamstring injury

April 4, 2021

The Orioles used a seven-run third inning to build a double-digit lead over the Red Sox early on Easter Sunday en route to an 11-3 win and a season-opening sweep at Fenway Park. But it didn’t come without some injury concern. That concern centered on left fielder Austin Hays, who

Santander hampered by minor oblique issue

Harvey to start 2nd game of season; LeBlanc open to any role with O's
March 27, 2021

A minor oblique issue has kept outfielder Anthony Santander out of the Orioles' lineup this week, manager Brandon Hyde confirmed before Saturday’s 8-5 loss to the Braves. The issue, which Hyde characterized as precautionary, has sidelined Santander for the past four games, with Opening Day less than a week away.

Notes: Mountcastle out; Kremer; Lowther

March 24, 2021

The Orioles have played Ryan Mountcastle regularly in left field this spring, prepping the rookie for everyday reps at the position in 2021. His short-term status is now uncertain. Mountcastle was scratched from the Orioles’ lineup Wednesday night with what manager Brandon Hyde called “a non-physical injury.” Tyler Nevin instead

Chris Davis (back strain) likely headed to IL

March 22, 2021

From the time a lumbar strain sidelined Chris Davis near the start of Orioles camp, the possibility existed that the injury would force Davis to begin the year on the injured list. Now that’s looking more and more probable. O's manager Brandon Hyde said Monday the team is considering opening

Félix H. dealing with right elbow discomfort

March 16, 2021

In an injury that potentially throws a wrench into the Orioles' rotation plans, right-hander Félix Hernández left Tuesday’s 7-1 loss to the Rays due to right elbow discomfort, said general manager/executive vice president Mike Elias. Hernández exited after striking out two over a scoreless first inning, then he was replaced

Notes: Harvey's oblique injury; camp cuts

March 12, 2021

SARASOTA, Fla. -- To a man, the Orioles and Hunter Harvey came into camp with the same goal for the hard-throwing right-hander: To get through the spring healthy. That did not happen. His arm, however, is fine. The O's breathed a relative sigh of relief after learning Harvey left Friday’s

Santander's 'main goal is to be healthy'

February 23, 2021

It was a busy winter for Orioles right fielder Anthony Santander, who spent it in Miami, rehabbing a serious left oblique injury, blocking out trade rumors and challenging the organization in arbitration. Stressful? Hardly. The affable slugger was all smiles Tuesday, when he spoke publicly for the first time since

Mancini a full-go: 'I feel just like I did before'

February 22, 2021

In Trey Mancini's mind, his comeback won't be truly complete until Opening Day, until he's back on the field again for real, until what he does between the white lines matters. Since beating Stage 3 colon cancer late last year, Mancini has eyed Opening Day 2021 as his intended return

RHP Baumler, '20 Draft pick, has TJ surgery

O's outright four players on 40-man roster, ink five to Minors deals
November 2, 2020

The Orioles completed an instructional camp at their Sarasota, Fla., complex this week that, by most measures, they consider a necessary and resounding success. But it was not immune to the injury bug. Right-hander Carter Baumler, the club’s No. 18 prospect per MLB Pipeline, underwent Tommy John surgery to replace

Evan Phillips hits IL; elbow prognosis positive

September 23, 2020

Cautiously optimistic they avoided the worst, the Orioles placed Evan Phillips on the 10-day injured list Wednesday after testing revealed inflammation in the reliever’s right elbow. The transaction came a day after Phillips was removed from an 8-3 loss to the Red Sox due to discomfort in the elbow. “We’re

O's continue inauspicious trend in loss to Sox

Reliever Phillips (elbow) exits on sour note following positive outings
September 23, 2020

For all the improvement the Orioles have witnessed in the batter’s box and on the mound in 2020, one area in particular that has lagged behind as this 60-game season sprinted toward its conclusion: the defense. Despite bright spots like Cedric Mullins in center field and José Iglesias when healthy

Iglesias an early exit as O's fall again to Rays

X-rays negative, but wrist contusion another ailment for vet shortstop
September 19, 2020

From back to quad to shin issues, José Iglesias has played through bumps and bruises all season. It remains to be seen if he’ll be able to persevere through this latest injury. The Orioles' shortstop was removed from Saturday’s 3-1 loss to the Rays immediately after being hit in the
