The Orioles list Mountcastle as injured.

As a result of left AC joint inflammation, Mountcastle will spend the next 10 days on the injured list after his most recent attempt to hit in the cage this morning failed to demonstrate any improvement in his shoulder.

Ryan McKenna, an outfielder, is traveling to Houston as part of the corresponding roster change.
His position this afternoon will be on the bench.

Last Wednesday at Camden Yards against the Cardinals, Mountcastle was hurt after fouling off a pitch in the first inning.
In the third, he was taken out.

Three days can be added to the move, making Mountcastle eligible to return on September 1.
27, in Baltimore.

Manager Brandon Hyde stated, “Tried to swing today, didn’t go as well as we were hoping.

It’s not a failure. He was progressing very well, and he is now feeling better.
The other day, he attempted to swing, but it hurt a little. We were hoping that today’s session would be an improvement over the previous one, but it just wasn’t, so we’re going to backdate it a few days and try to get him ready.

“Hopefully, he’ll be prepared as soon as his IL date comes around.

Due to episodes of dizziness, Mountcastle missed a month of the season.
He joined the team again on July 9 following a rehab assignment.
His batting average is 324.
494 runs were scored in 50 games in the second half on the strength of eight doubles, seven home runs, and 27 RBIs.

Dot269/ is generally being reduced at Mountcastle.
325/. 20 doubles, a triple, 18 home runs, and 67 RBIs totaled 453 in 111 games.
Against left-handed pitchers, he is hitting.340 with a 1.0056 OPS.

When the media had access to Minute Maid Park, he wasn’t at his locker.

Hyde remarked, “He’s really depressed about it.”.
“For him, it’s disappointing. He was disappointed that it didn’t feel very good during his batting practice in the cage today because he was hoping to be back in a few days.
He is disappointed because of the treatment he is receiving, everything he is getting, and how hard he is working to get back.

To offer a substitute, Anthony Santander has been practicing at first base the past few days.
Including the seven straight after Mountcastle’s injury, Ryan O’Hearn is making his 53rd start today.
James McCann, the backup catcher, and Ramón Uras are additional options.

In the minors, Heston Kjerstad made 37 starts at first base despite being thought of as a better right fielder.

McKenna was out of the lineup for Sunday’s playoff-clinching celebration because the Orioles decided to option him on Thursday while choosing Kjerstad’s contract.
In 15 games with the Tides, he was 10-for-55 with two doubles, three home runs, and a triple.

17 relievers were used in the last three games, leaving the bullpen shorthanded today.
In each of the three, Cionel Pérez and Yennier Cano made an appearance.

Last night, DL Hall made 18 pitches, which raises a question about his availability.

A fifth reliever was added to the rotation when Jack Flaherty was moved to the bullpen, but Kyle Bradish must pitch for a long stretch for Hyde to succeed.

Hyde answered, “I’ll take it.
“We could make use of it.

In his fifth relief appearance of his career, Flaherty worked two innings last night.
He is sick today.

As of now, he will remain in the bullpen, according to Hyde.
“I was impressed with how he threw yesterday.
He helped us win the game, in my opinion.

Starting in Cleveland are Kyle Gibson, Dean Kremer, John Means, and Grayson Rodriguez. TBA, Shane Bieber, Cal Quantrill, and TBA are on The Guardians’ list of performers.
