Orioles activated UTIL Steve Pearce from the 15-day disabled list.
Pearce missed over a month with a strained oblique. He's been a big disappointment in the followup to his "breakout" 2014 and probably won't hold much fantasy value down the stretch. The 32-year-old is slashing just .227/.290/.392 in 58 total games this season. Aug 24 - 3:17 PM

The 32-year-old has had a disappointing season for the Orioles, slashing .227/.290/.392 with seven homers and 24 RBI in 58 games. He'll be utilized all over the diamond while also providing right-handed punch off the bench for the Orioles.

Steve Pearce (oblique) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Thursday in the Gulf Coast League.

Pearce has been out since July 19 and will spend at least a week (maybe two) playing minor league rehab games. The 32-year-old utilityman has been a huge disappointment this season following his breakout 2014 and the O's might wait until rosters expand on September 1 to officially bring him back up.

Steve Pearce (oblique) took batting practice on Tuesday.

Steve Pearce felt tightness in his oblique on Saturday.

The Orioles are putting the brakes on Pearce's rehab for now. He hasn't played since July 18 and isn't close to beginning a rehab assignment. Pearce has struggled this season, hitting just .227 over 176 at-bats. He won't come close to matching the 21 home runs he posted a year ago.

Steve Pearce (oblique) took part in baseball activities on Monday.

Aug 10 - 9:06 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Steve Pearce (oblique) could return by September 1.

Pearce is expected to resume baseball activities early next week. He's been slow to recover from a strained oblique but should be close to beginning a rehab assignment. The 32-year-old has followed up his breakout 2014 campaign by hitting .227 with seven homers in 58 games this season.
Aug 8 - 7:48 PM

Steve Pearce (oblique) hopes to throw and swing a bat this week.

Pearce to this point has been limited to rest and treatment since straining his left oblique two weeks ago, but he said he was finally pain-free on Saturday. He might need a couple rehab games but doesn't appear too far off from a return if he can avoid a setback.
Aug 2 - 9:22 AM

Steve Pearce (oblique) remains limited to rest and treatment.

Pearce is eligible to return from his left oblique strain in a week, but he's not going to be ready at that point. "If you test it and you're wrong, you set yourself back another two weeks," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.
Jul 27 - 8:07 PM

Orioles placed UTIL Steve Pearce on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 19, with a left oblique strain.

Pearce has regressed in a huge way this season after his "breakout" 2014. He'll likely miss three weeks. This move clears a 25-man roster spot for Kevin Gausman.
Jul 22 - 4:47 PM

Steve Pearce hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the seventh to help the Orioles beat the Astros 4-3 on Monday.

Pearce has just nine hits this month, but at least three of them have been homers, and since one was a grand slam, he has driven in 10 runs. There's still plenty of room for him to reemerge as a full-time player for the Orioles if he can get hot. Really, though, he's struggled just to tread water all season.
May 25 - 4:40 PM

Steven Pearce hit a grand slam in the first inning of Thursday's 5-4 win over Mariners.

Pearce hit the four-bagger off of J.A. Happ with two outs in the first inning. It was Pearce's fourth homer of the season and pushed his RBI count to 15. While he does have a little sneaky pop in his bat, it's not enough to overcome a .198/.275/.341 batting line. Continue to disregard him for fantasy purposes.
May 21 - 6:27 PM

Steve Pearce went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's loss to the Angels.

Pearce hit the solo home run, his third of the season, off of Matt Shoemaker in the fourth inning. He finished with two hits. The Orioles as a team finished with three. This season, the light-hitting Pearce is batting .195/.276/.325 with three homers and 10 RBI.

This will be his sixth start at second base. Jimmy Paredes will serve as the designated hitter while Delmon Young will play right field and Travis Snider will play left.
