  • Orioles' Coby Mayo: Mastering Triple-A

    Mayo is slashing .319/.424/.639 with six home runs and a 17.6 percent strikeout rate in 19 games since returning to action for Triple-A Norfolk.

    A top-five prospect in dynasty leagues at this point, Mayo missed a month early in the year with a rib injury, but he has been even better at the plate since returning than he was before the injury. The 22-year-old corner infielder had a 27.6 percent strikeout rate when he was placed on the injured list in the middle of May, and the recent decrease in strikeouts suggests he has essentially mastered Triple-A pitching. The Orioles may opt to keep Mayo in the minors until at least late August so that he is eligible for the AL Rookie of the Year Award in 2025, but if he were to get a promotion before then, he would be a priority add in the majority of formats.

  • Orioles' Coby Mayo: Back in action

    Mayo (ribs) returned from Triple-A Norfolk's 7-day injured list Tuesday and went 0-for-4 in the club's 9-5 loss to Lehigh Valley.

    Mayo spent about a month on the IL and completed his rehab assignment at High-A Aberdeen over the weekend. The infield prospect will likely need some time to get back up to speed at Triple-A, so he likely won't be an option for a promotion if the Orioles need to replace Jordan Westburg (hip) on the active roster.

  • Orioles' Coby Mayo: Finishes rehab assignment

    Mayo (rib) completed his rehab assignment with High-A Aberdeen on Sunday, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports.

    Mayo is set to rejoin Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday after he went 6-for-13 with three home runs and six RBI over four games during his rehab assignment with Aberdeen. The 22-year-old has been working his way back from a fractured rib he suffered May 16 and will look to carry his red-hot bat to Triple-A with him.

  • Orioles' Coby Mayo: Commencing rehab assignment

    Mayo (rib) will begin a rehab assignment Thursday with High-A Aberdeen, Jacob Calvin Meyer of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Before Mayo fractured a rib after slamming into a dugout in pursuit of a catch May 16, he was hitting .291 with 13 home runs across 192 plate appearances for Triple-A Norfolk. He'll likely play a few games in Aberdeen and potentially with Double-A Bowie before he returns from Norfolk's 7-day injured list.

  • Orioles' Coby Mayo: Likely to start swinging next week

    Mayo (rib) is expected to resume swinging a bat next week, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Mayo has been sidelined at Triple-A Norfolk since fracturing a rib while he pursued a fly ball and slammed into the third-base dugout in a May 16 game. Even if Mayo responds well to swinging the bat, he'll still likely need at least another week to fully ramp back up before he's ready to return to game action for Norfolk. Mayo was hitting .291 with 13 home runs across 192 plate appearances before he was shut down with the injury.

  • Orioles' Coby Mayo: Lands on IL with fractured rib

    Mayo was placed on Triple-A Norfolk's 7-day injured list Friday due to a fractured rib, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Mayo was removed from Thursday's game against Lehigh Valley after he collided with the dugout railing chasing a pop-up in foul territory. X-rays after the game revealed that Mayo suffered a fractured rib, and the 22-year-old is set to be sidelined for several weeks. Before the injury, he was slashing .291/.359/.605 with 11 doubles, 13 home runs and 37 RBI over 192 plate appearances at Triple-A.

  • Orioles' Coby Mayo: Suffers injury after collision

    Mayo exited Thursday's game with Triple-A Norfolk after colliding with the third-base dugout, Rich Dubroff of Baltimorebaseball.com reports.

    There aren't many details available about the incident, but Mayo's removal was termed as a precaution. Assuming he can make a quick return, Mayo could be nearing a promotion to the majors as he's posted an impressive .282/.353/.594 line across 190 plate appearances with Norfolk.

  • Orioles' Coby Mayo: Excelling at Triple-A

    Mayo is slashing .344/.388/.656 with seven home runs, 19 RBI, three stolen bases and 18 runs scored over 21 games this season at Triple-A Norfolk.

    Mayo has been one of a few talented Baltimore prospects to dominate so far this season for the Tides, and with Heston Kjerstad expected to get the call to the big leagues Tuesday, Mayo's opportunity may not be far away. Jackson Holliday is now 1-for-30 in the first nine big-league games of his career, so it wouldn't be a shock to see Mayo get a chance if Holliday isn't able to turn things around soon.

  • Orioles' Coby Mayo: Sent to minor-league camp

    The Orioles reassigned Mayo to minor-league camp Friday, Matt Weyrich of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Mayo slashed .326/.426/.544 with one home run and seven doubles this spring, but the competition for roster spots in Baltimore is stiff and he ultimately finds himself on the outside looking in. The 22-year-old should debut with the big club at some point in 2024.

  • Orioles' Coby Mayo: Will focus on third base in camp

    Mayo will get most of his reps in big-league camp at third base, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Mayo will also see time at first base and could work out in right field as well. The Orioles believe third base gives Mayo the quickest path to the majors, especially with Gunnar Henderson (oblique) limited to start the spring. That said, Mayo could require a little more time at Triple-A Norfolk before contending for a major-league spot. He slashed .267/.393/.512 with Norfolk over 62 contests after a midseason promotion in 2023.

  • Orioles' Coby Mayo: Moves up to Triple-A

    The Orioles promoted Mayo from Double-A Bowie to Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday, Steve Melewski of MASNSports.com reports.

    The Norfolk lineup had a need for another power hitter after outfielder Colton Cowser was recently called up to the big leagues, and the 21-year-old should help fill some of that void. The corner-infield prospect slashed .310/.427/.609 with 17 home runs in 344 plate appearances at Bowie, doing so while maintaining a manageable 24.4 percent strikeout rate.

  • Orioles' Coby Mayo: In control at Double-A

    Mayo is hitting .281 with a .400 OBP and seven home runs in 49 games for Double-A Bowie.

    The 21-year-old infielder has been the sixth-best hitter (149 wRC+) in the Eastern League and is one of the 10 youngest hitters on the circuit. Baltimore is overflowing with talented young position players in the majors and upper minors, so Mayo may not get a shot as soon as he's ready, either later this season or sometime next season. However, he looks like a future middle-of-the-order run producer capable of playing either corner-infield spot in addition to designated hitter.

  • Orioles' Coby Mayo: Reassigned to minor-league camp

    The Orioles reassigned Mayo to minor-league camp Thursday, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Mayo slashed just .143/.188/.214 through his 16 plate appearances this spring. He was able to reach Double-A ball last season, where he posted a .745 OPS across 149 plate appearances, and will likely return there to begin the 2023 campaign.

  • Orioles' Coby Mayo: Turns in modest 2022

    Mayo slashed .247/.326/.456 with 19 homers and five steals across 104 games split between High-A and Double-A in 2022.

    After impressing in rookie ball last season, the 2020 fourth-rounder was pretty good in High-A (14 homers and an .821 OPS over 68 games) before largely struggling upon his promotion to Double-A (.729 OPS, 34.5 percent strikeout rate). That said, he gets a pass because of his youth, as this was Mayo's age-20 campaign. He is big and projectable at 6-foot-5, 215 pounds, and he needs some time to grow into his power and learn how to hit upper-level pitching, so it'd be a surprise if Mayo were to make his MLB debut for anything more than a cup of coffee in 2023.

  • Orioles' Coby Mayo: Back in action for Bowie

    Double-A Bowie reinstated Mayo (back) from its 7-day injured list, and he'll re-enter the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against Akron as the team's designated hitter and No. 6 batter.

    Mayo had been out of action since July 1 with back spasms, but he was cleared to rejoin Bowie after recently wrapping up a seven-game rehab assignment between the rookie-level Florida Complex League and High-A Aberdeen. Following his late-June promotion from Aberdeen, Mayo played in only three games for Bowie before the back issue cropped up.

  • Orioles' Coby Mayo: Shifting rehab to High-A

    Mayo (back) is expected to move his rehab assignment to High-A Aberdeen on Tuesday, Andy Kostka of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    After going 0-for-5 with a walk and a run scored over a pair of rehab games in the rookie-level Florida Complex League over the weekend, Mayo is expected to spend the entire week with Aberdeen. If he remains free of setbacks over his next few rehab games, Mayo should be activated from Double-A Bowie's 7-day injured list early next week. Mayo has been on the shelf since early July with the back injury.

  • Orioles' Coby Mayo: Rehabbing in FCL

    Mayo (back) is set to begin a rehab assignment with the Orioles' Florida Complex League team this week, Andy Kostka of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Mayo has dealt with back spasms throughout July, but he's progressed enough to return to game action. He's expected to need a few FCL games before returning to Double-A Bowie.

  • Orioles' Coby Mayo: Heads to injured list

    Mayo landed on Double-A Bowie's injured list with back spasms Saturday, Steve Melewski of MASNSports.com reports.

    Mayo hadn't played in a week due to the issue, which is now considered serious enough for him to officially exit the roster. The Orioles don't seem concerned about any long-term issues for Mayo, however.

  • Orioles' Coby Mayo: Battling back spasms

    Mayo left Friday's Double-A Bowie game due to back spasms, Andy Kostka of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Mayo had only just joined Bowie on Monday, having hit .250/.326/.479 with 13 homers in 63 games for High-A Aberdeen to open the year. Whether or not the back issue represents anything more than a minor setback for the 20-year-old remains to be seen.

  • Orioles' Coby Mayo: Advances to Double-A

    The Orioles promoted Mayo from High-A Aberdeen to Double-A Bowie on Monday, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Mayo was one of three top Orioles prospects elevated Monday to Bowie, with outfielder Colton Cowser and infielder Connor Norby also joining him in making the jump from Aberdeen. The 20-year-old third baseman hit .250 with 13 home runs, five stolen bases and a 9.4 percent walk rate across 270 plate appearances at High-A.
