  • Colton Cowser Starting Over Cedric Mullins Again

    Headshot for Colton Cowser

    Baltimore Orioles rookie outfielder Colton Cowser is starting in center field over the slumping Cedric Mullins yet again on Thursday against the hosting Toronto Blue Jays. Cowser will bat ninth against Blue Jays left-hander Yusei Kikuchi. It's the fourth time in the last six games that Cowser has started over Mullins in center field. Meanwhile, Austin Hays, who is starting to heat up offensively, is starting in left field for the fourth time in the last five games. It signals that the left-handed-hitting Mullins is the odd man out in Baltimore's outfield right now with a .178/.225/.314 slash line on the year. After a nice start to his first full year in the big leagues, Cowser has also hit a rough patch, though, and has gone 5-for-39 (.128) with a homer, three RBI and 11 strikeouts in 12 games since May 23.

  • Cedric Mullins Finds Himself On The Bench Again

    Headshot for Cedric Mullins

    Baltimore Orioles outfielder Cedric Mullins is on the bench again on Tuesday versus the Toronto Blue Jays and right-handed opener Trevor Richards. Rookie Colton Cowser is in center field and is batting seventh, while Austin Hays gets another start in left field and will bat sixth for the O's. This will be the third time in the last four games that Mullins has found himself starting the game on the bench for Baltimore. The 29-year-old left-handed-hitting outfielder is trending down in fantasy big time and continues to lose time against right-handed pitchers. So far this year, he's slashing a rough .181/.225/.319 with six home runs and 22 RBI, but at least he's produced 11 stolen bases for his fantasy managers. Mullins hasn't picked up a hit in any of his last five games.

  • Cedric Mullins Retreats To The Bench

    Headshot for Cedric Mullins

    Baltimore Orioles outfielder Cedric Mullins is retreating to the bench on Saturday against the visiting Tampa Bay Rays. Colton Cowser will slide over to center field and bat sixth, while Kyle Stowers mans left field and hits in the eight-hole against Rays right-hander Taj Bradley. Mullins is still useful for his speed on the basepaths -- he's swiped 11 bags in 52 games this year -- but he's hitting just .185 (30-for-162) with six home runs, 22 RBI and 22 runs scored in 175 plate appearances with a career-high 25.7% strikeout rate. If Mullins continues to struggle offensively, he'll find himself on the bench more often against right-handed pitching. Stowers has gotten some run in Mullins' expense and has capitalized by going 7-for-18 with three doubles and five RBI in his first 10 games in 2024.

  • Cedric Mullins Sitting Against White Sox

    Baltimore Orioles outfielder Cedric Mullins and infielder Jorge Mateo are both sitting out of the lineup on Saturday against the Chicago White Sox. Kyle Stowers will draw into the lineup in left field and will hit eighth, while Ramon Urias will play third base and bat ninth against White Sox right-hander Erick Fedde. Rookie Colton Cowser shifts over to center field and will hit sixth in the batting order. Mullins' fantasy stock continues to fall after going hitless on Friday to drop his season line to .195/.242/.336, although he does have six home runs, 20 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 149 at-bats for the O's. Stowers has only played in seven games in his third big-league season in 2024 and has gone 2-for-8 with an RBI and three strikeouts. He represents a low-upside DFS option near the bottom of the Baltimore batting order on Saturday.

  • Cedric Mullins Sitting Out Again Friday

    Headshot for Cedric Mullins

    Baltimore Orioles outfielder Cedric Mullins remains out of the starting lineup on Friday against the visiting Seattle Mariners and right-hander Bryce Miller. It's the third time in the last five games that Mullins has started on the bench for the Orioles. Rookie Colton Cowser is in center field and is hitting sixth on Friday, while Kyle Stowers is starting in left field and batting eighth against Miller. Mullins' fantasy stock is obviously down with his loss of playing time coming due to his .183/.234/.349 slash line on the year with six home runs, 18 RBI and six stolen bases in 126 at-bats. Since April 22, Mullins has gone 5-for-59 (.085) with a home run, three RBI, two stolen bases, four walks and 19 strikeouts in 63 plate appearances over 18 games played. Fantasy managers in redraft leagues need to keep Mullins on their bench until he starts producing again.

  • Cedric Mullins Out Of Sunday's Lineup

    Headshot for Cedric Mullins

    Baltimore Orioles outfielder Cedric Mullins is not in the team's starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. It is the second game in a row that Mullins has missed, which is likely due to his middling performance at the plate. The veteran speedster is slashing a disappointing .192/.244/.367 with a 33:8 K:BB, but he does have six home runs, 18 RBI and six steals. Managers in deeper leagues can hang onto Mullins a little longer, but he enters droppable territory if playing time becomes a significant concern. Colton Cowser is starting in centerfield and batting seventh with Mullins out. Cowser is also trying to bust a slump as he is batting .149 with no homers across his last 15 games.

  • Cedric Mullins Out Of Lineup Against Lefty On Saturday

    Headshot for Cedric Mullins

    Baltimore Orioles outfielder Cedric Mullins is out of the Orioles lineup on Saturday against the Kansas City Royals. This appears to be a matchup decision as the Royals are starting their dynamic lefty Cole Ragans. Jorge Mateo will be starting in center field in place of Mullins. Mateo has been much stronger against lefties, hitting for a .908 OPS compared to Mullins' .388 OPS in 16 PA. The 29-year-old should be expected to be back in the lineup on Sunday as the Orioles will face off against Royals right-hander Seth Lugo.

  • Cedric Mullins Blasts Walkoff Homer

    Headshot for Cedric Mullins

    Baltimore Orioles outfielder Cedric Mullins came up clutch for his team during Wednesday's game against the Minnesota Twins. There was some thought that Mullins would return to the leadoff spot this season, but that doesn't appear to be the case. Instead, Mullins normally sits in the sixth spot where he has hit well this season. On Wednesday, Mullins was hitless until he blasted a walkoff two-run home run off right-hander Griffin Jax. Mullins now has five home runs and 15 RBI through 18 games.
