The Baltimore Orioles had a day off Thursday as they travel back home to take on the Tampa Bay Rays this weekend.
Here's the latest Orioles and Rays news.
Baltimore returned OF Anthony Santander to Triple-A Norfolk Thursday. Santander served as the 26th man for the Orioles' double-header against the White Sox Wednesday, hitting a home run and drawing a walk in his first MLB action this season.
3B prospect Ryan Mountcastle collected four hits for Triple-A Norfolk Wednesday night. The 22-year old is now hitting .324 for the 2019 season.
Tampa Bay defeated the Royals 3-1 Thursday afternoon, closer Diego Castillo recording his fourth save in the win. Starting pitcher Charlie Morton struck out nine and allowed just one run over 6 2/3 innings but did not factor into the decision, while 2B Brandon Lowe went 2-for-4 and hit the go-ahead homer in the ninth inning.
The Rays placed RHP Hunter Wood on the 10-day IL with right shoulder soreness, recalling RHP Casey Sadler from Triple-A Durham to take Wood's place in the bullpen.
