Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports that the Orioles resigned UTIL Stevie Wilkerson to a minor-league deal.
The contract includes an invitation to spring training. The 28-year-old missed the entire 2020 season due to a fractured finger. He posted a .669 OPS in 2019.
Stevie Wilkerson fractured his finger and will miss significant time, per manager Brandon Hyde.
Wilkerson had a shot at making the Opening Day roster due to the lack of Orioles' depth in the outfield, so this is tough news to swallow. Expect him to try and latch on with a team in 2021.
Stevie Wilkerson went 2-for-3 on Sunday against the Phillies, hitting two singles and driving in a run in the 3-2 victory.
Wilkerson is competing for at-bats in the outfield, but is likely to be nothing more than a fifth outfielder. He needs to cut down on his abysmal 30% strikeout rate to be considered an everyday regular.
Stevie Wilkerson went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and an RBI single as the Orioles defeated the Blue Jays 8-1 on Saturday.
Wilkerson has been seeing action in the outfield and second base but has not been able to land a full-time role with his bat. On the season the 27-year-old is hitting just .218 with a .265 on-base percentage, seven home runs, and 21 RBI. Wilkerson can be left on the waiver wire.
Stevie Wilkerson went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run and two strikeouts in Tuesday's 11-4 loss to the Yankees.
Wilkerson has been seeing some playing time with the Orioles and is hitting .264 with five home runs and 13 RBI in 25 games. Some solid numbers but there will be some regression and fantasy owners can avoid Wilkerson.
