Mountcastle surpasses Ripken in Orioles’ 3-2, 10-inning win (updated)

Individual achievements remain in play for the Orioles as the final weeks expire on their season. During those times when trying to be spoilers doesn’t bring full satisfaction. Ryan Mountcastle led off the bottom of the sixth inning today by depositing Jordan Montgomery’s sinker into the Orioles bullpen, his 29th home run breaking Cal Ripken Jr.’s rookie record for a single season. Mountcastle also cut ... read more

Orioles and Yankees lineups (and notes)

Trey Mancini and Pedro Severino remain out of the Orioles lineup this afternoon for the series finale against the Yankees that also closes out the homestand. “Both of those guys a little bit better today,” said manager Brandon Hyde. “Trey’s testing it right now in the batting cage and obviously not starting, but hopefully in the lineup in the next couple days.” Infielder Jahmai Jones ... read more

Orioles claim Kriske off waivers

The Orioles claimed right-hander Brooks Kriske off waivers from the Yankees this afternoon and optioned him to Triple-A Norfolk. Pitcher Jorge López was transferred to the 60-day injured list to open a spot on the 40-man roster. López is done for the season after spraining his right ankle. Kriske, 27, was a sixth-round pick in 2016 out of USC who made eight relief appearances this ... read more

Long on hitters: “We’ve had a lot of room to grow”

Because the terms of manager Brandon Hyde’s contract with the Orioles weren’t shared with the public - and that does include the media, even if some of us shouldn’t be allowed to mingle - it’s more of an assumption than solid confirmation that his three-year deal includes an option for the 2022 season. The expectation is that he’s returning, though nothing official has come across. ... read more

Orioles rally for lead and relinquish it in ninth in 4-3 loss (updated)

Gary Sánchez drove a fastball to deep center field tonight in the second inning, flipping his bat on the backswing, and began his trip around the bases. Where else was he going after making that kind of contact? Cedric Mullins sprinted to the ball, timed his leap at the fence and reached high above it, came down, hopped twice to his left - sticking the ... read more

Notes on Mancini, Severino, Means, Mullins, Mountcastle and more

Trey Mancini was written into today’s lineup as the designated hitter, but he swung in the cage, felt more discomfort in his right oblique/abdomen and moved to the bench for the game. “Just still feels it a little bit,” said manager Brandon Hyde. “We’re not going to push him on this and the right thing to do is to give it another day or two ... read more

Orioles lineup vs. Yankees (updated)

The Orioles will try to end a four-game losing streak with Trey Mancini staying in the lineup and Pedro Severino removed from it. Mancini came out of last night’s game after one plate appearance with right abdominal soreness. Severino struggled to get up the first base line on a double play grounder in the sixth inning due to soreness in his leg/groin area, and Austin ... read more

Season shutdowns slow evaluation process for Orioles

The perk of a last-place team being able to audition and evaluate younger players while looking ahead to next spring training crumbles with each injury. The Orioles won’t win any Gold Gloves for catching breaks. Jorge López made a good impression as a reliever, but only for eight games before a sprained ankle put him on the shelf for the remainder of the season. A ... read more
