Orioles designate Owings for assignment (plus lineup)

Pitcher Austin Voth has joined the Orioles and is headed to the bullpen.

Voth was claimed off waivers yesterday from the Nationals.

The Orioles designated infielder Chris Owings for assignment to make room for Voth, who’s wearing No. 51.

Owings was 6-for-56 with two doubles, 10 walks and 24 strikeouts in 26 games. He signed a minor league deal on March 15 and served in a super-utility role.

Owings was activated from the bereavement list yesterday.

The bench is down to three players tonight – catcher Robinson Chirinos, outfielder Ryan McKenna and infielder Tyler Nevin.

Jordan Lyles makes his 12th start of the season. He’s made 15 career appearances and nine starts against the Cubs and posted a 5.68 ERA and 1.433 WHIP.

The Orioles’ win last night was their second ever against the Cubs at home, the other on June 12, 2003. They tied their season high with five home runs.

Cedric Mullins’ leadoff home run gives him the fifth most in club history.

Jorge Mateo snapped an 0-for-15 streak with his three-run homer in the second inning. Adley Rutschman was 0-for-20 before his bloop single in the eighth.

Marcus Stroman, in his first season with the Cubs, has registered a 5.32 ERA and 1.225 WHIP in nine starts.

The Orioles saw plenty of Stroman from his days in Toronto. He’s 5-5 with a 3.21 ERA and 1.279 WHIP in 14 games (13 starts) against them.

Owings is 4-for-13 with a double against Stroman, but he's no longer an option.
