2B,SS,CF - BAL
Orioles shortstop Jorge Mateo went 1-for-3 with a RBI single, one stolen base, a run scored and reached first base on an error in Thursday's 9-6 win over the Yankees.
Mateo decided to swipe another bag Thursday which tied him for first in the majors with Harrison Bader and Julio Rodriguez with 11 stolen bases. If you are in need of stolen bases, the speedy shortstop is still available in plenty of leagues. Go get him.
Baltimore Orioles SS Jorge Mateo (chest) is set to return to the lineup on Wednesday as the Orioles look to avoid being swept by the Yankees.
Mateo will bat seventh in his return to the lineup and is currently slashing .241/.280/.375 with two home runs and eight RBI on the season. The shortstop can be plugged back into lineups but this should be done so with caution as the Orioles will be facing the Yankees ace Gerrit Cole.
Jorge Mateo is going to miss another game, dealing with a chest injury. He is still considered day-to-day.
The Orioles' shortstop was hurt Sunday but was available to come off the bench on Monday. Manager Brandon Hyde likely just wants to get his speedy infielder a bit more rest. Mateo is among the league leaders in steals with 10 this season, creating his only bit of fantasy appeal.
Baltimore Orioles SS Jorge Mateo (chest) has been kept out of the starting lineup on Monday, but he will be available off the bench.
Mateo mentioned that he is feeling good after getting a bruise in a collision suffered in Sunday's game. The shortstop will be available off the bench and should be considered day-to-day at most but should not be streamed for this week as he is guaranteed at least one missed game with the possibility of more.
Jorge Mateo has been diagnosed with a left shoulder/chest contusion after X-rays were negative.
Mateo left Sunday's game a few innings after a full-speed collision with Spencer Torkelson. Fantasy managers can let out a sigh of relief that Mateo avoided the worst of it, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see him rest for a few days. He is slashing .241/.280/.375 with 10 steals, so fantasy managers in roto leagues should hold him at all costs.
