Involved Push

The Orioles’ opening working day roster incorporates eight players poised to make their Baltimore debut and only five outfielders, such as Dwight Smith Jr., who was reinstated from the hurt listing just after arriving late to camp thanks to a optimistic examination for COVID-19.

Baltimore positioned still left-hander John Means on the ten-working day hurt listing with still left shoulder exhaustion. Means was initially scheduled to commence the opener Friday night time in Boston but has been changed by Tommy Milone, who pitched for Seattle final season.

Relievers Hunter Harvey (correct forearm pressure) and Dillon Tate (elbow contusion) have been also positioned on the ten-working day hurt listing.

Outfielder Trey Mancini and shortstop Richie Martin (broken finger) are on the 60-working day hurt listing. Mancini is recovering from colon most cancers surgical treatment and is envisioned to miss the total season.

The five outfielders are Smith, DJ Stewart, Cedric Mullins, Austin Hays and Anthony Santander, who also obtained a late commence in camp just after tests optimistic for COVID-19.

Along with Milone, shortstop José Iglesias, infielders Andrew Velazquez and Pat Valaika, and pitchers Wade LeBlanc, Cole Sulser, Travis Lakins and Kohl Stewart will be sporting an Orioles uniform for the first time.

The roster, which includes 16 pitchers, have to be reduced to 28 players on Aug. six and to 26 players on Aug. twenty.
