The Orioles plan to decline Nick Hundley's $5 million option for 2015.
He would be a fine backup catcher, but the Orioles can fill that role more cheaply with Caleb Joseph when they get Matt Wieters (elbow) back next season. Hundley has some pop but will probably have to settle for a backup job this offseason. Oct 17 - 9:41 AM

Nick Hundley went 2-for-4 with a home run and a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the White Sox.

Hundley hit his fourth home run of the year, a solo job, in the seventh inning. Much more impressive was his stolen base, just the eighth of his career. Hundley has played sparingly with Caleb Joseph swinging a hot bat, and he'll continue to serve primarily as a backup from here out.
Aug 19 - 10:56 PM

Nick Hundley came through with an RBI single off Adam Warren in the 10th inning on Friday, leading the Orioles to a walk-off 3-2 victory.

The veteran backstop finished the night 2-for-4 with that critical RBI. With the two-hit effort, he's now hitting .264/.282/.384 with 13 RBI in 125 at-bats on the season. If he continues to swing the bat well, he could be in line for additional playing time behind the plate for the Orioles.
Jul 11 - 10:27 PM

Nick Hundley had a two-out go-ahead RBI single to lead the Orioles to a 7-6 victory over the Brewers in 10 innings on Monday.

Hundley, who was acquired from the Padres over the weekend as insurance for Matt Wieters, went 1-for-5 with a strikeout in his O's debut. He's worth a pickup in AL-only leagues, though Steve Clevenger should still get plenty of at-bats.
May 26 - 6:14 PM

Orioles acquired C Nick Hundley and cash considerations from the Padres in exchange for LHP Troy Patton.

Hundley had been functioning as the third catcher in San Diego, hitting .271/.271/.373 with a homer and three RBI in his 59 at-bats. He'll work in tandem with Steve Clevenger to fill the O's void behind the plate while Matt Wieters is sidelined.
May 24 - 12:28 PM

Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Padres have had active talks with teams involving a trade of Nick Hundley.

Hundley has been given just 21 plate appearances this season as the Padres juggle three catchers on their roster, though he is batting .333/.333/.619. San Diego seems satisfied with Yasmani Grandal and Rene Rivera as their catching tandem, making Hundley and his $4 million salary expendable. The 30-year-old has hit just .238/.297/.393 during his career, but he has some pop and could produce some decent offensive numbers away from Petco Park.
Apr 22 - 11:04 PM

Nick Hundley went 2-for-4 with a home run in the Padres' loss to the Giants on Sunday.

Starting in place of Yasmani Grandal, Hundley pulled a Tim Lincecum pitch down the left field line for his first home run and first RBI of the year. The backup catcher is hitting .316 in limited action thus far.
Apr 20 - 9:03 PM

Nick Hundley is in Monday's starting lineup, making his second start of the season.

The Padres have utilized a three-catcher corps, so Hundley's playing time has been limited. In six at-bats this season, Hundley has three hits.
Apr 7 - 3:43 PM

Nick Hundley homered and drove home a pair of runs on Friday, powering the Padres to a 4-2 victory over the Angels in Cactus League action.

The veteran backstop finished the day 2-for-3. With Yasmani Grandal recovering quickly from ACL surgery, it looks like Hundley could be relegated to reserve duty by the start of the regular season. He's shown nice pop in the past though, and if he sees consistent at-bats could be an option in deeper two-catcher formats.
Mar 14 - 7:36 PM

Nick Hundley went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run on Wednesday.

Hundley contributed to a four-run first inning against Chris Sale with the two-out blast, his first of the spring. He'll likely be the starting backstop on Opening Day as Yasmani Grandal is working his way back from ACL surgery.
Mar 5 - 5:05 PM

Nick Hundley belted a three-run homer to lead the Padres to a 4-1 victory over the Diamondbacks on Monday.

He finished 2-for-4. Hundley entered the game batting .208 in September and had gone 5-for-29 (.172) since September 11, so the big night was good to see. The veteran catcher is slashing .238/.293/.392 with 12 homers and 43 RBI over 357 at-bats.
Tue, Sep 24, 2013 01:19:00 AM

Nick Hundley delivered a pinch-hit three-run double in the seventh inning on Sunday, leading the Padres to a 5-2 victory over the Rockies.

The 30-year-old backstop took over the lion's share of the Padres' catching duties when Yasmani Grandal went down early in the season, and has produced enough offensively to help out in two-catcher mixed leagues. He's now hitting .241/.299/.395 with 11 homers and 40 RBI in 324 at-bats on the year.

Nick Hundley finished 2-for-2 with a walk, double, RBI and two runs scored in a 3-2 victory against the Giants on Tuesday.

Hundley's double to deep center in the fifth plated Kyle Blanks and gave the Friars a 1-0 lead. The veteran catcher scored the game-winning run on Chris Denorfia's seventh inning single. He's slashing .243/.300/.399 with 11 homers and 37 RBI over 313 at-bats.
Wed, Sep 4, 2013 01:58:00 AM

Nick Hundley drove in the game-winning run in Sunday's extra-inning victory over the Cubs.

Hundley singled off Hector Rondon to score Alexi Amarista in the bottom of the 15th inning. He finished 2-for-5 on the night and is 9-for-27 in his last seven games.
Sun, Aug 25, 2013 09:32:00 PM

Padres activated C Nick Hundley from paternity leave.

Hundley was gone from the team for two days to be present for the birth of his child. He's hitting .231 with a weak .677 OPS in 82 games this season for San Diego.
