The 27-year-old has the inside track to remain the Orioles' starting left fielder in 2023.

  • Orioles' Austin Hays: Homers in return

    This was Hays' second homer since the start of July, though he's dealt with wrist and oblique injuries over the last month-plus. He started out well this season, but those injury issues have likely contributed to a lackluster .207/.267/.326 slash line across his last 25 contests. The outfielder has slashed .261/.318/.438 for the season while adding 13 long balls, 48 RBI, 50 runs scored and a pair of stolen bases in 97 games.

  • Orioles' Austin Hays: Still out Sunday

    Hays (oblique) is not in the lineup Sunday against the Pirates, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Hays hasn't seen the field since Tuesday due to tightness in his left oblique, and he won't rejoin the lineup for Sunday's series finale versus Pittsburgh. The 27-year-old ran, hit and threw Saturday, so he could be back in action within the next day or two, according to Kubatko. Brett Phillips and Anthony Santander will continue to start in the corner outfield for Baltimore.
