  • Orioles' Ryan O'Hearn: Taking seat against lefty

    O'Hearn is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers while he contends with a sore left knee, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    The 30-year-old had his left knee wrapped following Saturday's 8-4 win after he was hit by a pitch earlier in the contest, but the lefty-hitting O'Hearn likely would have been on the bench Sunday regardless of the injury since southpaw Andrew Heaney is pitching for Texas. O'Hearn will have Monday's team off day to rest up ahead of Tuesday's series opener against the Marlins.

  • Orioles' Heston Kjerstad: Taking seat Sunday

    Kjerstad is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers.

    After spending the minimum seven days on the injured list due to a concussion, Kjerstad was activated Saturday and started in right field in the Orioles' 8-4 win, going 0-for-2 with a walk and a strikeout. Though he'll take a seat Sunday against southpaw Andrew Heaney, the lefty-hitting Kjerstad could reclaim regular reps against right-handed pitching now that he's fully healthy.

  • Orioles' Cedric Mullins: On bench versus lefty

    Mullins is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports.

    Mullins went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, a walk and an additional run scored Saturday but won't start Sunday against Texas southpaw Andrew Heaney. Colton Cowser will man center field and bat seventh in the series finale.

  • Orioles' Ramon Urias: Scratched Sunday

    Urias was scratched from the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports.

    The 30-year-old was initially penciled in at third base, but Gunnar Henderson was a late addition to the lineup after originally being scheduled for a day off. Urias hasn't been reported to be dealing with an injury, as he's likely just the odd man out with Baltimore's All-Star shortstop entering the starting nine.

  • Orioles' Gunnar Henderson: Late addition to lineup

    Henderson will start at shortstop and bat leadoff Sunday against the Rangers after initially being absent from the lineup, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports.

    Henderson appeared set to sit for just the second time all season but will instead take his usual spot atop the order for Baltimore. Ramon Urias will head to the bench as the odd man out of the Orioles' initial Sunday lineup.

  • Orioles' Ramon Urias: On base four times in win

    Urias went 3-for-4 with a walk, two RBI and one run scored in Saturday's 8-4 win over the Rangers.

    Urias has been steady in a part-time role in July, going 9-for-21 (.429) with seven walks over nine contests this month. For the season, Urias is slashing .247/.319/.387 with four home runs, 14 RBI, 19 runs scored, seven doubles, one triple and no stolen bases over 166 plate appearances. There's typically one spot in the lineup for either Urias or Jorge Mateo on any given day. Both of them are right-handed hitters, so it's unlikely either one carves out a significantly larger role barring an extended hot streak.

  • Orioles' Cedric Mullins: Reaches double-digit homers

    Mullins went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, an additional run and a walk in Saturday's 8-4 victory versus Texas.

    Mullins hit one of three Baltimore homers in the win, slugging a solo shot to right field in the third inning. It was his 10th long ball of the campaign, marking the fourth straight season in which he's belted double-digit homers. Mullins has also recorded double-digit steals in each of those campaigns.

  • Orioles' Jordan Westburg: Belts homer Saturday

    Westburg went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run and an additional run in an 8-4 win against the Rangers on Saturday.

    Westburg led a big performance by the bottom half of Baltimore's lineup, as the team's No. 6 through No. 9 hitters went a combined 9-for-16. The three-hit performance was Westburg's first multi-hit effort over his past nine contests and snapped a four-game hitless streak during which he had gone 0-for-15. The second baseman is up to 16 homers and 52 RBI on the campaign while slashing .273/.318/.500 through 378 plate appearances.

  • Orioles' Grayson Rodriguez: Registers 12th victory

    Rodriguez (12-4) earned the win over Texas on Saturday, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out eight batters over six innings.

    Rodriguez was staked to a 4-0 lead in the top of the second inning, but he gave up a pair of runs to split the advantage in half in the bottom of the frame. However, those were the only tallies Texas managed against him, and the right-hander ended with his 12th win -- second most in the majors -- and 10th quality start. Four of those quality starts have come over Rodriguez's past five outings.

  • Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle: Sitting Saturday

    Mountcastle is not in the starting lineup Saturday versus the Rangers.

    Mountcastle will take a seat after he went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Friday's series opener. Ryan O'Hearn will draw the start at first base and bat fourth against Texas.

  • Orioles' Kyle Stowers: Sent to Triple-A

    Stowers was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports.

    Stowers will head back to Triple-A after being called up July 13. With Heston Kjerstad (concussion) returning from the 7-day injured list Saturday, Stowers was the odd man out, but he'll likely earn another shot with the big-league club down the road.

  • Orioles' Heston Kjerstad: Activated from concussion IL

    Kjerstad (concussion) was reinstated from the 7-day concussion injured list Saturday and he's starting in right field, batting fifth against the Rangers, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports.

    Kjerstad missed Baltimore's final two contests before the All-Star break and their first game after while nursing concussion symptoms. Since being called up June 24, he has produced a .378 average with three homers, 12 RBI, five runs scored and a stolen base over 37 at-bats in 14 games. In a corresponding move, outfielder Kyle Stowers was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk.

  • Orioles' Creed Willems: On shelf at High-A

    High-A Aberdeen placed Willems (hamstring) on its 7-day injured list July 9.

    Willems was removed from a July 6 game against Greensboro with a left hamstring injury and was placed on the IL three days later. The 21-year-old backstop slashed .232/.316/.452 over 276 plate appearances with Aberdeen before being shut down with the injury.

  • Orioles' Colton Cowser: Pops homer in win

    Cowser went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 9-1 win over the Rangers.

    Cowser stretched the Orioles' lead to 4-0 in the first inning with his first homer since June 28. The outfielder has a chance for more playing time in left field while Heston Kjerstad (concussion) is on the 7-day injured list. Cowser is slashing .219/.305/.427 with 13 homers, 36 RBI, 34 runs scored and five stolen bases through 295 plate appearances this year. His primary competition for playing time is Austin Hays, though Cowser does have the platoon advantage should such a situation develop.

  • Orioles' Adley Rutschman: Goes deep in win

    Rutschman went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run, a walk and an additional run scored in Friday's 9-1 win over the Rangers.

    Rutschman stumbled into the All-Star break, going 5-for-40 (.125) with a 7:5 BB:K over his last 11 games. He made a quick impact in Texas with his first-inning homer, washing away his 0-for-2 performance during the All-Star Game in the same park. The catcher's season-long numbers have taken just a modest hit due to his recent slump -- he now has a .275/.340/.447 slash line with 17 homers, 61 RBI, 49 runs scored, one stolen base and 12 doubles through 91 contests.

  • Orioles' Corbin Burnes: Wins despite command issues

    Burnes (10-4) allowed a run on two hits and four walks over six innings Friday, striking out six and earning a win over the Rangers.

    The lone blemish on Burnes' final line was a solo shot from Nathaniel Lowe in the second inning. It was the first time this year that he'd issued more than three walks in a start -- over his previous four outings, he had walked just one batter. Burnes has gone 7-2 with an impressive 2.10 ERA over his last 12 starts. The veteran righty lowered his ERA to 2.38 with a 116:29 K:BB through 124.2 frames. His next outing is currently expected to come in Miami.
