Hernan Perez launched a two-out, two-run home run as a pinch hitter in Saturday's loss to the Marlins.
He made his second appearance of the campaign on Saturday and supplied his club with fleeting hope with his pinch-hit homer in the seventh inning off lefty Craig Breslow. He's only with the big-league club due to an injury to Scooter Gennett (oblique) and isn't currently worth owning in any fantasy format.
Hyun-soo Kim finished 3-for-4 with a run scored in Saturday's loss to the White Sox.
Kim doubled among his three hits, his first extra-base hit of the season. The 28-year-old famously refused to accept an assignment to Triple-A Norfolk at the end of spring, and he's certainly doing everything in his power to prove it was the right decision for both he and the O's. Through Saturday's game, Kim is 9-for-15 and should draw some more playing time, even in a crowded Orioles outfield, given his early success.
Marcell Ozuna was one of four Marlins to homer in Saturday's win over the Brewers and ended the night going 2-for-5 with a walk and two runs scored.
He launched a solo shot off lefty Chris Capuano in the sixth inning to extend the lead to 7-1. It was a good thing, too, as the Marlins coughed up four runs in the next inning. The center fielder has shown an extreme platoon split all season, posting an .846 OPS against lefties compared to a .615 OPS versus right-handers. Since he only had a .646 OPS against righties in 2015, he's very close to being nothing but a platoon outfielder at just 25 years old.
Zach Britton exited Saturday's game against the White Sox with a left ankle injury.
He limped off in the ninth inning after trying to field a bunt by Adam Eaton, who reached on an infield single. Britton tried to flip the ball with his glove but couldn't connect with first baseman Chris Davis. He was later charged with a run when Vance Worley allowed the inherited runner to scorer. Manager Buck Showalter called the injury a "jammed" ankle and said Britton is day-to-day. Darren O'Day would take over the closer role if Britton ends up missing significant time.
Brett Lawrie homered, stole a base and scored two runs in Saturday's win over the Orioles.
Lawrie hit a solo home run, his third of the season, in the fourth inning before walking to lead off the seventh. He promptly stole second base -- his second steal of the year -- and came around to score on an Austin Jackson RBI single. In his first year with the Sox, Lawrie is hitting .267/.347/.444 with nine RBI and 14 runs scored.
Pedro Alvarez went 3-for-5 with a double, a home run and two RBI Saturday against the White Sox.
Alvarez belted his first home run as a member of the Sox in the fourth inning. He added an RBI double an inning later, finishing the proverbial triple shy of the cycle. After a brutal start the 29-year-old has begun to round into form in recent days, going 7-for-12 with three doubles and the homer to raise his overall line to .224/.333/.367.
Adeiny Hechavarria went 4-for-5 against the Brewers on Saturday night with his second homer of the season.
He pounced on a grooved two-strike fastball from Chase Anderson in the second inning, and although he reached base three more times, that home run marked his only run and RBI of the night. His big night ended a dreadful 3-for-29 stretch in his previous nine games. The 27-year-old shortstop is now hitting .222/.256/.347 in 78 plate appearances.
Mat Latos allowed 11 hits and four runs over five innings in Saturday's no-decision against the Orioles.
Things could have been much worse for the right-hander, as both of the home runs he allowed came without men on base. It has been something of a high-wire act for Latos to this point, as he's got a 1.84 ERA and 1.09 WHIP despite not striking out many batters. Strikeouts aren't everything, of course, but relying on batted ball luck will only get you so far. We'll see if Saturday's start was an aberration or a sign of things to come when Latos meets up with the Twins on Friday.
