Cedric Mullins II
CF - BAL - IL10
Sun, 6/4 4:05pm
The Baltimore Orioles have placed outfielder Cedric Mullins on the 10-day injured list with a right groin strain.
Mullins was injured Monday afternoon and, unfortunately, it sounds like he will miss notable time. Orioles general managers Mike Elias said the hope is his groin strain keeps Mullins out weeks, not months. At the very least, he will miss far more than the minimum time on the IL while he's worked to an .835 OPS with eight homers and 13 stolen bases on the season.
Cedric Mullins was removed from the game Monday after slowing up while running to first base on a groundout.
Mullins could have tweaked a hamstring, which would be bad news for the Orioles and fantasy managers alike. Fantasy managers should consider Mullins day-to-day for now until the Orioles provide more information on his injury.
Cedric Mullins II is leading off and playing center field Friday vs the Rangers.
Mullins missed Thursday's game due to personal reasons but is back at the top of the lineup after missing just one game. He's been on a hot streak in his last 10 games, hitting .325/.372/.650.
