  • Orioles Reinstate James McCann From 10-Day Injured List

    Headshot for James McCann

    James McCann is set to make his Orioles debut, as the catcher has been reinstated from the 10-day injured list.  The O’s announced that outfielder Kyle Stowers was optioned to Triple-A in the corresponding move. McCann suffered an oblique strain fairly late in Spring Training, as he played his last Grapefruit League game on March…

    Headshot for Mychal Givens

    The Orioles finalized their Opening Day roster this morning, selecting the contract of catcher Anthony Bemboom in the process. Lefty John Means, recovering from Tommy John surgery, was placed on the 60-day injured list to open a spot on the 40-man roster. Baltimore also placed catcher James McCann on the 10-day IL with an oblique…

  • James McCann Likely To Open On Injured List

    Headshot for James McCann

    Baltimore Orioles catcher James McCann (oblique) missed the final seven games of spring training after feeling soreness in his left oblique in a March 20 Grapefruit League game against the Philadelphia Phillies. The 32-year-old backstop called the injury "minor," but general manager Mike Elias said it's "likely" that McCann will begin the 2023 season on the injured list. He spent almost a month on the injured list last year with the New York Mets with a left oblique strain, although he said his current soreness is on the same side but in a different area. McCann will be backing up young catcher Adley Rutschman when he's healthy, and Anthony Bemboom should serve as Baltimore's backup to open the season with McCann on the shelf.

  • James McCann Might Not Be Ready For Opening Day

    Headshot for James McCann

    Baltimore Orioles catcher James McCann (oblique) hasn't played in a spring game since Monday due to discomfort in his left oblique, which he noticed while swinging at a pitch. McCann was on the injured list last year with the New York Mets after being diagnosed with a strained left oblique. Baltimore is keeping him out of Sunday's Grapefruit League game, and they don't know if he'll be ready for Opening Day on Thursday against Boston. McCann is hopeful he can be on the Opening Day roster, but the O's may play it safe. If McCann begins on the injured list, Anthony Bemboom would break camp with the team for the second straight season. When healthy, McCann will back up starter Adley Rutschman while getting some starts at first base and DH against left-handed pitching.

  • Orioles Notes: Givens, Tate, McCann

    Headshot for Mychal Givens

    Mychal Givens’ status for Opening Day is uncertain, as the veteran reliever is battling knee soreness and hasn’t pitched since March 16.  His readiness is perhaps even more doubtful after this morning’s throwing session, as Givens was working off a mound and throwing to batters before cutting the session short.  According to reporters on the…

  • James McCann Sidelined With Soreness In His Side

    Headshot for James McCann

    Baltimore Orioles catcher James McCann (side) has been experiencing soreness in his side and has been out of the lineup since March 20th. Manager Brandon Hyde noted that it is simply a precaution and McCann should return in the next couple of days. The 32-year-old was acquired from the New York Mets over the offseason in exchange for cash and minor-leaguer Luis De La Cruz. McCann missed considerable time last season after breaking his hamate bone, followed by an oblique injury that sidelined him for a month. When on the field, McCann slashed a dreadful .195/.257/.282 but only made 191 plate appearances. If he can stay healthy this coming season, McCann is a plus-defender and can possibly tap into some complimentary power.
