  • Orioles' Austin Hays: Not in Monday's lineup

    Hays is absent from the lineup for Monday's contest against the Red Sox.

    Hays appears to be over his lingering left calf injury, but he's now started just three of the last seven games for the Orioles. Colton Cowser will be in left field while Cedric Mullins plays center.

  • Orioles' Austin Hays: Calf injury still lingering

    Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said after Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Blue Jays that Hays is still dealing with lingering effects from his left calf injury, Jake Rill of reports.

    Hays was just activated from the 10-day injured list Monday following a three-week absence and evidently is still not feeling 100 percent. He delivered a pinch-hit double off the bench Wednesday but was immediately lifted for a pinch hitter. Despite Hays seemingly not being 100 percent healthy, a return to the IL doesn't seem to be in the cards. According to Danielle Allentuck of, Hyde is hopeful that Hays will be able to start Friday's game against the Mariners, though he could be deployed at designated hitter rather than in the outfield.

  • Orioles' Austin Hays: Returns from injured list

    The Orioles reinstated Hays (calf) from the 10-day injured list Monday.

    He'll be available off the bench for Monday's series opener versus the Blue Jays as the Orioles go with Colton Cowser, Cedric Mullins and Anthony Santander as their starters in the outfield from left to right. Prior to landing on the shelf April 22 due to a tight calf, Hays had gotten off to a miserable start to the season, slashing .111/.200/.111 across 50 plate appearances. He showed more signs of life during his five-game rehab stint with Double-A Bowie (5-for-14 with two home runs, one double and three walks), but Hays may still have to settle for a fourth-outfielder role initially upon rejoining the big club. Hays should, however, play regularly against left-handed pitching, and he could re-emerge as an option to steal work against right-handed pitching from Cowser and Mullins, both of whom have struggled of late. Cowser is in the midst of a 7-for-50 stretch at the plate over his last 16 games, while Mullins has gone 5-for-50 over the same span and was actually benched against a pair of right-handed starters during this past weekend's series with the Diamondbacks.

  • Orioles' Austin Hays: Cleared to begin rehab assignment

    Hays (calf) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Bowie on Tuesday, Jake Rill of reports.

    Hays has been working out with Bowie as he comes back from a left calf strain and is now ready for his first game action since April 20. With Colton Cowser's production slowing the last couple weeks, Hays could have a chance to regain more reps in left field once he's deemed ready to return from the 10-day injured list.

  • Orioles' Austin Hays: Working out with Double-A affiliate

    Hays will work out with Double-A Bowie this weekend, but it's unclear when his rehab assignment will start, Jacob Calvin Meyer of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Hays is nursing his way back from a strained left calf, an injury he sustained Apr. 20. While an official start date for his rehab assignment has yet to be announced, it's expected he'll do such at Bowie. Colton Cowser has taken hold of the starting job in left field, so the team has the luxury of not being forced to rush Hays back.

  • Orioles' Austin Hays: Resumes running, hitting

    Hays (calf) said that he's been able to engage in a running program the past few days and plans to hit Thursday, Roch Kubatko of reports.

    Manager Brandon Hyde implied Monday that Hays had made limited progress in his recovery from a left calf strain, but the outfielder struck a much more optimistic tone when he talked about where he stood in his rehab program Thursday. Hays admitted he's unsure whether he'll need a rehab assignment prior to being activated from the 10-day injured list, as the Orioles could just allow him to get some competitive at-bats in during simulated games. Regardless, Hays likely won't be in store for an everyday role whenever he's activated, as rookie Colton Cowser appears to have established himself as Baltimore's top option in left field.

  • Orioles' Austin Hays: Limited progress in recovery

    Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said Monday that Hays (calf) is showing improvement, but the outfielder has yet to take part in much physical activity since landing on the 10-day injured list April 22, Danielle Allentuck of reports.

    Hays is eligible for activation later this week, but he doesn't appear to have made enough progress at this point in his recovery from the left calf strain for his return to be viewed as imminent. Prior to being shelved with the injury, Hays hit just .111 over 45 at-bats on the season and had ceded his spot in the everyday lineup to rookie Colton Cowser.

  • Orioles' Austin Hays: Slated to run soon

    Hays said Friday that he will test out his left calf strain with some running in a couple days, Roch Kubatko of reports.

    Hays injured his calf last weekend and was eventually placed on the 10-day injured list Monday. He's feeling better, but the real test will come when he does some running and ramps things back up. Before getting injured, Hays had lost his starting job in left field to Colton Cowser.
