Hays back with Orioles and McKenna designated for assignment, plus tonight's lineups

The Orioles made a second outfield-related roster move today, reinstating Austin Hays from the 10-day injured list and designating Ryan McKenna for assignment.

McKenna can decline an outright assignment and become a free agent if he clears waivers.

Hays worked out on the field earlier today before the Orioles decided to reinstate him.

Hays and Kyle Stowers are on the bench tonight. Colton Cowser is playing left field and Cedric Mullins is in center after being out of the last two lineups.

Jordan Westburg is the third baseman and Jorge Mateo is at second.

Corbin Burnes has started his career with the Orioles with eight straight appearances of at least five innings while allowing three runs or fewer. Per STATS, Rick Krivda is the only other Orioles pitcher to begin his career with these numbers, in 1995.

The Orioles have a plus-49 run differential this season, tied with the Royals for fourth in the majors, after tying for fifth last season. Per STATS, the last time that the Orioles finished consecutive seasons in the top five was 1982 (third) and 1983 (second).
