Baltimore Orioles

AL East


Orioles catcher Robinson Chirinos went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's 9-6 win over the Yankees.

Fantasy Impact: Chirinos took Jordan Montgomery deep on a four-seam fastball in the 2nd inning which scored Tyler Nevin. This was the O's catcher's first homer on the season to go along with three runs, six RBIs and an OBP of .264. The production is not there for any fantasy consideration.

Orioles third baseman Tyler Nevin went 2-for-4 with two singles, an RBI, and two runs scored in Thursday's 9-6 win over the Yankees.

Fantasy Impact: Nevin scored Anthony Santander off his single in the 6th inning. The 24-year-old has only played 17 games this season with 54 at bats. He has recorded seven runs, one home run, and seven RBIs with an OBP of .306.

Orioles first baseman Trey Mancini went 2-for-5 with two singles and a run scored in Thursday's 9-6 win over the Yankees.

Fantasy Impact: Mancini keeps climbing up the hits leaderboard this season as he is now tied for 18th with 40 hits. While the first baseman's RBI, run, and home run numbers are rather low, he is slashing a quality .292/.349/.394 on the year.

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.

Fantasy Impact: 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.

Orioles outfielder Anthony Santander went 3-for-4 with a home run, two doubles, three RBIs, three runs scored, and a walk in Thursday's 9-6 win over the Yankees.

Fantasy Impact: Santander took Lucas Luetge deep for a three-run walk-off homer which snapped the O's six-game losing streak. The switch hitter has been very boom or bust this season with Thursday being a reminder of his boom capability. With 18 runs, 31 hits, seven home runs, 19 RBIs, and an OBP of .354 on the season, Santander is definitely worth a pickup if he is available.

Orioles OF Cedric Mullins is not in the starting lineup Thursday afternoon against the visiting Yankees according to The Athletic's Dan Connolly. (Source: Dan Connolly on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Cedric Mullins will rest in the final game of the series against the Yankees. Mullins has 11 hits in his last nine games so he appears to be heating up for Baltimore. Mullins has scored 20 runs and swiped seven bases so despite the slow start, managers should be happy with his production of late, although they would surely like to see more than his five home runs in mid-May.

Orioles starter Jordan Lyles struck out eight batters while allowing three runs (two earned), five hits, and zero walks over seven innings of work in Wednesday's 2-3 loss to the Yankees.

Fantasy Impact: Despite the loss and falling to 2-4 on the year, Lyles earned his third quality start. The righty pitcher has struggled with consistency in fantasy but has provided us with a couple of quality outings. Keep a keen eye on if he can build off of Wednesday's stellar performance.

Grayson Rodriguez continues to dominate at the Triple-A level, striking out 11 batters in just 5 1/3 scoreless innings. (Source: NBC Sports)

Fantasy Impact: Orioles prospect Grayson Rodriguez is considered one of the best pitching prospects in all of baseball. He has a 57/13 K/BB ratio this year, with a 2.65 ERA. It's only a matter of time before Baltimore calls him up this summer. If you have a bench spot to burn or are lucky enough to have N/A spots in your league, go get him before it's too late.


Orioles outfielder Austin Hays went 3-for-4 with one single, two doubles, a RBI, and a run scored in Wednesday's 2-3 loss to the Yankees.

Fantasy Impact: Hays was able to score Mullins ll off his double in the 6th inning and then proceeded to reach home. The 26-year-old now has 37 hits, 13 runs, three home runs, 13 RBIs, and a .364 OBP on the year. Hays' has underrated value in deeper leagues.

Spenser Watkins gave up two runs on four hits over four innings on Tuesday against the Yankees. The right-hander issued three walks with one strikeout on 73 pitches getting a no-decision in the 5-4 loss.

Fantasy Impact: Through seven starts, Watkins is sporting a 5.10 ERA and 1.60 WHIP with a poor 4.2 K/9 rate. He should be nowhere near a fantasy lineup and be a guy to target with hitters in DFS whenever he takes the mound.

Orioles shortstop Ramon Urias went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and an RBI off a fielding error in Tuesday's 4-5 loss to the Yankees.

Fantasy Impact: Urias took Jameson Taillon deep in the 2nd inning to put the O's on the board. He proceeded to collect his second RBI off a fielding error by Gleyber Torres which scored Trey Mancini. The 27-year-old shortstop is currently slashing .212/.257/.317 with eight runs, two homers, and nine RBIs.

Baltimore Orioles SP Matt Harvey has received a 60-game suspension for his violation of the joint drug program. (Source: Jon Heyman on twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The starting pitcher would now be set to return near the end of the season for the Orioles but with the team in rebuilding mode still it may not matter much when he returns. Prior to the suspension he had not pitched in any games for the Orioles in the 2022 season and was rather awful in his time on the mound in 2021 ending the season with a record of 6-14 and an ERA of 6.27.

Orioles starter Kyle Bradish struck out six batters while allowing four earned runs, eight hits, and three walks over 4 1/3 innings of work in Monday's 2-6 loss to the Yankees.

Fantasy Impact: The righty pitcher's ERA increased to 5.06 after an 8.31 performance on Monday. Although, it was a tough matchup versus the soaring Yankees. Bradish remains a very risky play until we see some consistency moving forward.

Orioles starter Tyler Wells struck out 2 batters while allowing three earned runs, eight hits, and zero walks over four innings of work in Sunday's 1-5 loss to the Tigers.

Fantasy Impact: The righty pitcher has a record of 1-3 on the year with one quality start under his belt. Wells' ERA took a hit with a 6.75 rate on Sunday. With only 4.50 K/9 in both of his last two outings, his upside is not where managers would want it to be.

Orioles starter Bruce Zimmermann struck out 2 batters while allowing three runs (two earned), seven hits, and one walk over six innings of work in Saturday's 0-3 loss to the Tigers.

Fantasy Impact: The lefty pitcher allowed two home runs on Saturday but managed to tally another quality start. With a 2.72 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 7.93 K/9, Zimmermann is quietly flying under the radar and might be worth an add for managers who need a starter.

The Orioles placed Ryan Mountcastle on the 10-day IL on Friday with a left wrist/forearm strain, retroactive to May 11. (Source: Roch Kubatko on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Mountcastle had missed two games so the move can be backdated, but it's unclear how much time he'll need to miss. Tyler Nevin will likely get more playing time in Mountcastle's absence. The Orioles should provide a timetable for his return in the coming days, but unless it's a long-term injury, managers can hold Mountcastle until he comes back.

Orioles reliever Felix Bautista faced four batters without surrendering a run to earn the save in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Bautista faced one batter in the 8th inning as he proceeded to earn his second career save in the 9th. With Jorge Lopez expected back from the bereavement list at any moment, Bautista will surrender primary closing duties back to Lopez. Nevertheless, Bautista has proven himself capable of handling save situations. The right-hander currently owns a 1.93 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and a 10.29 K/9.

Orioles catcher Anthony Bemboom went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Bemboom delivered a solo shot in the 7th inning down the right field line that put the O's up by 2. The 32-year-old got the start Thursday with Robinson Chirinos receiving the day off. Bemboom owns a .140 AVG, .229 OBP and a .256 SLG with six hits, four runs, one home run, and one RBI on the year.

Orioles SP Jorge Lopez was placed on the Bereavement List on Tuesday. (Source: Dan Connolly on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It is unknown how much time Lopez will miss, as it has been different for every player in the past. The right-hander has been solid out of the bullpen for Baltimore this season, boasting a 1.13 ERA with 16 strikeouts in 16 innings. When he does return, he should slide back into his role as the No. 1 option in the bullpen.

Orioles reliever Dillon Tate struck out two batters while delivering a scoreless ninth inning against the Royals on Sunday. He gave up one hit in the process. Baltimore ultimately defeated Kansas City by a score of 4-2.

Fantasy Impact: Tate owns a 1.93 ERA, 0.71 WHIP, and .167 OBA along with two walks and 12 strikeouts this season. He continues to compete for a late-inning role with Jorge Lopez, who has tallied four saves in 2022.
