Craig Gentry went 2-for-4 with two stolen bases and two runs scored in a loss to the Tigers on Thursday.

Highlights have been few and far between this year for Gentry, who has just three multi-hit games all season counting Thursday. He's always had speed, and the two steals give him five in seven tries this year. The 33-year-old is hitting .211/.296/.296 in 53 games as a role player.
Aug 4 - 1:39 AM

Craig Gentry hit a walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning Monday in the Orioles' 2-1 win over the Royals.

Gentry was 0-for-3 in the game when he stepped to the plate with two runners on and two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, and he sent O's fans home happy with a poke to center field that scored Caleb Joseph from second base. Gentry, 33, is still batting just .200/.284/.277 on the season.
Jul 31 - 9:45 PM

Orioles purchased the contract of OF Craig Gentry from Triple-A Norfolk.

Jul 14 - 4:16 PM

Orioles purchased the contract of OF Craig Gentry from Triple-A Norfolk.

Gentry batted just .162/.256/.270 in 44 plate appearances earlier this season with Baltimore. The veteran outfielder carries no fantasy relevance.
Jun 20 - 6:16 PM

Orioles sent OF Craig Gentry outright to Triple-A Norfolk.

May 16 - 4:53 PM

Craig Gentry had a nice night offensively in Friday's victory over the Red Sox, going 1-for-2 with a double and a pair of walks.

Gentry also scored the game's first run on an RBI single by Adam Jones in the third inning. He has seen some time hitting atop the O's lineup against left-handed pitching but is hitting just .150/.217/.350 and remains an unattractive fantasy option.
Apr 21 - 10:47 PM

Craig Gentry is starting in left field and batting leadoff for the Orioles in Friday's game against the Red Sox.

Gentry is sporting an ugly .111/.105/.278 batting line so far, but he's started and hit leadoff pretty consistently against lefties. He'll battle southpaw Drew Pomeranz in this one.
Apr 21 - 3:15 PM

Craig Gentry used his speed to tie the game in the ninth inning on Saturday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Orioles to victory over the Blue Jays.

The O's entered the ninth inning trailing 1-0, but Welington Castillo led off with an infield single off of Jays' closer Roberto Osuna. Gentry was called in to pinch run and immediately swiped second base. He took third on a fly ball off the bat of Hyun-Soo Kim and scored on a sacrifice fly from Jonathan Schoop. He brings an element of speed that has been sorely lacking in Baltimore the past few seasons.
Apr 15 - 3:53 PM

Craig Gentry is starting in left field and batting leadoff for the Orioles in Sunday's game versus the Yankees.

Gentry hasn't had an at-bat yet this season, but that didn't stop manager Buck Showalter from sticking him in the leadoff spot against southpaw CC Sabathia. Welington Castillo is getting a breather Sunday, as Caleb Joseph is behind the plate.
