AL East

Fantasy Impact: Shepherd made his Major League debut with the O’s on Aug. 13 last season. He made his first Major League start on Sept. 17, 2019, and finished with a 6.63 ERA over five appearances (three starts). Shepherd is not fantasy relevant at the moment but could be a name to watch if he has a strong spring.

Fantasy Impact: LeBlanc worked mainly as a primary pitcher for the Mariners last season. He owned a 5.71 ERA, 1.45 WHIP with 192 strikeouts across 121 1/3 innings in 2019. LeBlanc could earn $800,000 if he is able to make the roster. The 35-year old will need to have a strong spring training to lock in a spot in Baltimore’s rotation.

Dylan Bundy was traded to the Angels on Wednesday in exchange for right hander Isaac Mattson. (Source: Ken Rosenthal on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Bundy should earn a spot in the Angels rotation and could earn more wins as a result of this deal. He owned a 7-14 record, 4.79 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over 30 starts last season. With the improved situation, Bundy can be targeted in most drafts in the later rounds as potential flyer in mixed leagues.

Infielder Jonathan Villar has been traded from the Baltimore Orioles to the Miami Marlins in exchange for Easton Lucas, according to reports. (Source: Wells Dusenbury on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Villar had a solid 2019 for the Orioles but was oddly designated for assignment last week. While there was some speculation that he could be non-tendered and become a free agent, the Orioles ultimately dealt him to the Marlins for a player just drafted in June.

Renato Nunez went 1-for-4 and hit a home run on Saturday as the Orioles beat the Red Sox by a 9-4 score.

Fantasy Impact: Nunez is hitting just .246 on the season but has put up some big power numbers. The 25-year-old third baseman has 31 home runs and 90 RBI over 150 games.

Richie Martin went 2-for-4 with a home run, two runs and two RBI in Saturday's win over the Red Sox.

Fantasy Impact: Martin who is more known for his glove than his bat struggled this season hitting just .204 over 119 games. The 24-year-old infielder has scored 28 runs and stolen 10 bases on the year.

Trey Mancini went 2-for-5 with a homer and two RBI in Saturday's victory over the Red Sox by a 9-4 score.

Fantasy Impact: Mancini has been of the few bright spots in the Orioles lineup this season. The 27-year-old slugger is hitting .291 with a .364 on-base percentage, 35 home runs, 96 RBI and 106 runs scored on the year.

John Means earned the win Saturday against the Red Sox, allowing three runs on five hits in five innings. He struck out five batters while walking two.

Fantasy Impact: Means has been a surprise for the Orioles this season as the team struggled to find good pitching. The 26-year-old lefty finishes with a 12-11 record with a 3.60 ERA and 1.14 WHIP over 27 starts and four relief appearances.

Austin Hays went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk, a stolen base, and two runs scored in the win against the Red Sox on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Hays has been hot since getting called up in September when the rosters expanded. The rookie is hitting .313 with nine extra-base hits, four home runs, 12 RBI, two steals, and 12 runs scored through 19 games. Hays has a good chance of earning a starting spot in 2020.

Asher Wojciechowski picked up the win after giving up four hits and a walk while striking out six over six scoreless innings Friday night against the Red Sox.

Fantasy Impact: Wojciechowski made his last start on Friday and finishes with a 4-8 record with a 4.92 ERA and 1.31 WHIP with 80 strikeouts over 82 1/3 innings. Woj should get a chance to earn a spot in the Orioles rotation in 2020 but will not be worth owning in standard fantasy leagues.

Mark Trumbo was scratched from the Orioles' starting lineup on Monday due to a left trapezius strain according to Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports. (Source: Roch Kubatko on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Trumbo has been dealing with this strain and has also dealt with a knee injury recently. It would not be surprising if the Orioles decide to shut down the slugger for the rest of the season. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on updates.

Mychal Givens pitched one inning on Saturday giving up three runs on two hits and walked one batter as the Orioles lost to the Mariners in extra innings.

Fantasy Impact: Givens was one of the few players on the Orioles getting drafted by fantasy owners before the season as the reliever looked like he would have a big year as the teams closer. But that was not the case as Givens has struggled and has a 4.77 ERA and has converted 11 of 19 save opportunities.

Anthony Santander finished 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Friday’s 5-3 win over the Mariners.

Fantasy Impact: Santander has been a nice surprise for the Orioles this season. The 24-year-old outfielder is hitting .269 with 20 home runs, 59 RBI and 44 runs scored on the year and should have a good shot at winning an outfield position in 2020.

Hanser Alberto went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk Friday in the 5-3 win against Seattle.

Fantasy Impact: Alberto has had a solid season playing at second and third base for the Orioles this season. The 26-year-old infielder is batting .313 with 12 home runs, 49 RBI and 60 runs scored on the year and is worth owning in deeper fantasy leagues.

Aaron Brooks allowed one run on one hit with one walk and four strikeouts across seven innings during a relief appearance to earn a victory against the Mariners on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Brooks came in as the bulk reliever after Richard Blier pitched the first two innings for the Orioles and went the final seven innings for the win. Brooks is now 6-8 with a 5.75 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, and 81 strikeouts across 108 innings this season.

Gabriel Ynoa took the loss against the Blue Jays on Thursday, giving up three earned runs on six hits over 6.1 innings, striking out one and walking none as the Orioles fell 8-4.

Fantasy Impact: Ynoa finished with a quality start but ended up with the loss and is now 1-9 on the season with a 5.65 ERA in 35 games (12 starts). The 26-year-old pitcher should be left on the waiver wire in all fantasy leagues.

Alex Cobb (hip, knee) is expected to be ready for the opening of spring training next February according to Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports. (Source: masnsports.com)

Fantasy Impact: Cobb has had two different surgeries this season as he underwent season-ending surgery back in June to repair a labrum tear in his hip and he also had a separate procedure for a meniscus tear in his knee. the veteran starter has struggled the last two seasons on the mound and is no longer fantasy relevant.

Miguel Castro gave up six runs (five earned) on three hits and walked two batters in two-thirds of an inning and took his third loss as the Orioles lost to the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Castro was asked to protect a four-run lead in the ninth and fell apart leading to the Orioles losing. The 24-year-old reliever has been having a good season and came into the game with a 2.47 ERA and 44 strikeouts in 47 1/3 innings since May 28.

Hunter Harvey will not pitch again this season, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports. (Source: Dan Connolly on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Orioles are calling the shutdown "precautionary" as Harvey hasn't been able to pitch due to right biceps soreness. The 24-year-old was once a top prospect but has dealt with injuries his whole career. Hopefully, Harvey can come into 2020 completely healthy and compete for a spot in the rotation.

Mason Williams didn't show concussion symptoms after running into the outfield wall Tuesday but will be monitored overnight nonetheless, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports. (Source: Joe Trezza on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Williams banged into the outfield wall in the ninth inning of Tuesday night's loss to the Blue Jays while trying to track down a line drive off the bat of Cavan Biggio. He'll be monitored overnight and there should be another update on his status on Wednesday.
