FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal was told by one source that Nick Hundley is the Orioles' "Plan A" as they look for a catcher.
He says Hundley is "Plan B" for "several clubs," but Baltimore is apparently higher on the backstop. Dan Connolly of BaltimoreBaseball.com reported earlier Monday that the O's had interest in Hundley, who played for the Orioles for half of the 2014 season. He batted .260/.320/.439 with 10 homers for the Rockies last season. Nov 21 - 4:27 PM

According to Dan Connolly of BaltimoreBaseball.com, the Orioles have shown interest in reuniting with free agent backstop Nick Hundley.

The Orioles have a glaring need behind the plate with Matt Wieters expected to leave as a free agent this winter and Caleb Joseph coming off of an extremely disappointing 2016 season. With top prospect Chance Sisco penciled in as the catcher of the future, the O's are looking for a short-term fix and Hundley, who spent the 2014 season in Baltimore, could be their man.

Nick Hundley went 2-for-4 with a grand slam and a walk Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Hundley, a free agent to be, figures to lose at-bats this month with Tommy Murphy up and Tony Wolters also looking for extra playing time. Still, he made his case to stay in the lineup tonight. The slam was his ninth homer of the year.

Hundley is batting .250/.374/.434 with two homers and 12 RBI overall.

Rockies placed C Nick Hundley on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique.

Hundley has been battling a sore left oblique all week and it got to the point where the Rockies needed the roster spot and couldn't wait for him any longer. Dustin Garneau was recalled from Triple-A to take his place on the roster.
May 6 - 6:38 PM

Nick Hundley (oblique) will be re-evaluated Friday before the Rockies determine whether he'll need a stint on the disabled list.

Hundley tweaked his left oblique during batting practice Thursday and had to be scratched from the lineup. "I've been feeling good physically, so it's frustrating on that end," Hundley said Thursday. "I'll have to check and see how it feels tomorrow. I cut batting practice a little bit short and I was going to go until it got worse." Dustin Garneau will be recalled if Hundley goes on the DL and he'd be in line to share time behind the plate with Tony Wolters.

Nick Hundley was a last minute scratch Thursday against the Giants.

The change was never announced. Hundley was listed in the lineup but Tony Wolters came to the plate when it was his turn to bat in the first inning. It's possible he suffered an injury, though beat writer Nick Groke of the Denver Post said he didn't notice anything unusual with Hundley when he hit before the game. We'll wait for manager Walt Weiss to explain himself before jumping to any conclusions.
