Ryan Flaherty provided the entirety of the Orioles' offense in Monday's loss to the Blue Jays with a three-run home run.

Flaherty put the O's up 3-1 in the second inning, driving a three-run home run to left-center off of Marco Estrada. The O's wouldn't score the rest of the evening. Flaherty finished 1-for-3 on the night. He's hitting .215/.296/.378 with nine home runs and 31 RBI near the season's conclusion.

Ryan Flaherty went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk versus the Royals on Wednesday.

Flaherty should be the Orioles' primary shortstop the next week with J.J. Hardy out. It doesn't make him a great mixed-league option, but he could be a cheap DFS play from time to time.

Orioles recalled INF Ryan Flaherty from Triple-A Norfolk.

He was just sent down over the weekend, but he's back to take the roster spot of Nolan Reimold, who is going on paternity leave. Flaherty could be sent back down in a couple days.

Orioles optioned 2B Ryan Flaherty to Triple-A Norfolk.

The Orioles needed to make room for Jonathan Schoop. Flaherty could return to the roster as soon as Monday. That's when the O's are expected to place Nolan Reimold on the paternity list. Usually when someone gets sent down they have to stay in the minors for a minimum of 10 days, but that doesn't apply to players on paternity leave.

Orioles activated INF Ryan Flaherty from the 15-day disabled list.

Ryan Flaherty (groin) is expected to begin playing in rehab games with Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday or Monday.

Flaherty has been on the 15-day disabled list since May 12 because of a mild right groin strain. He should be ready to return when first eligible and will likely resume getting regular starts at second base for the Orioles, who will be without Jonathan Schoop (knee) until mid-July.
