Craig Gentry is out of action for the Orioles on Monday due to a groin injury.
The severity of the injury is unclear. Gentry is slashing .292/.370/.542 in 24 at-bats this spring, but any lost time will hurt his odds of grabbing an Opening Day roster spot. Mar 13 - 11:10 AM

Craig Gentry went 2-for-3 and a three-run homer off the Blue Jays' Mat Latos on Wednesday.

Gentry, just signed by the Orioles three weeks ago, has a chance to make the team as a bench player with Michael Bourn expected to land on the disabled list. Still, it's more likely that he'll open up in Triple-A. He hasn't made a positive contribution to a major league team since 2013.
Mar 8 - 4:47 PM

Orioles signed OF Craig Gentry to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The 33-year-old hit just .147/.237/.176 in 39 plate appearances with the Angels in 2016 and was subsequently released in early August. He'll compete for a reserve outfielder role with the O's.
Feb 18 - 9:52 AM

Angels released OF Craig Gentry.

Gentry was designated for assignment on July 30 and subsequently passed through waivers. Rather than accept a minor league assignment, the veteran outfielder has elected to try his luck elsewhere. He hasn't played in a major league game since April 26 due to a lumbar strain. The Angels activated him from the 60-day disabled list prior to designating him for assignment, though, meaning he should be healthy enough to play when he finds a new home.

Angels activated OF Craig Gentry from the 60-day disabled list; designated him for assignment.

He's missed most of the year with a back injury. Gentry opened the year in a left field platoon with Daniel Nava, who was also DFA'd on Saturday. Now that role is being filled by Shane Robinson, Gregorio Petit and Ji-Man Choi.

Craig Gentry (back) drew two walks, stole a base, and scored a run Wednesday in his second rehab game with High-A Inland Empire.

Gentry has reached base in each of his three rehab games, dating back to his rehab debut Sunday with the Diamondbacks' affiliate in the rookie-level Arizona League. Gentry should be cleared to return to the Angels' active roster shortly after the All-Star break and he's probably going to see a decent amount of playing time in left field. The 32-year-old has been sidelined since April 26 with a lumbar strain.

Craig Gentry (back) will begin a rehab assignment with the Rookie-level AZL Angels on Thursday.

Gentry has been sidelined for the last few months with a "personal medical condition." It's unknown if that condition is related to the lumbar strain that sent him to the disabled list back in April. When he returns, Gentry will join a left field platoon that includes Daniel Nava and Todd Cunningham.

Angels transferred OF Craig Gentry to the 60-day disabled list.

Gentry was close to beginning a rehab assignment last month but a personal medical condition kept him on the disabled list. He was originally placed on the DL with a lumbar strain in late April. There's no timetable for Gentry's return.
Sat, Jun 11, 2016 06:53:00 PM

Craig Gentry will remain on the 15-day disabled list due to a personal medical condition.

Gentry landed on the disabled list late last month with a right lumbar strain, but was expected to make his return this week. That plan is now on hold indefinitely.

Craig Gentry (back) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Inland Empire on Friday.

As expected. Gentry was placed on the disabled list late last month after suffering a right lumbar strain. He's made steady progress since then and should be back with the Angels next week. He'll compete with Rafael Ortega for playing time in left field upon his return.

Craig Gentry (back) is expecting to begin a minor league rehab assignment on Friday.

Gentry landed on the disabled list May 1 -- retroactive to April 26 -- with a right lumbar strain. The outfielder was batting just .147/.237/.176 in 39 plate appearances before the injury and will probably spend at least a week playing in minor league games. Look for him to be activated next weekend.

Craig Gentry (back) has begun taking part in baseball activities.

Gentry was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right lumbar spine strain at the beginning of May (retroactive to April 26). While he is beginning to ramp up his rehab work, manager Mike Scioscia said on Wednesday that the veteran outfielder has "a ways to go" before he is ready to return to the active roster.

Angels placed OF Craig Gentry on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 26, with a right lumbar spine strain.

Gentry has battled the back issues for a few days and just wasn't getting any better. It's unclear at this point how long he'll be sidelined. Shane Robinson has replaced him on the roster.

Craig Gentry is battling back stiffness.

He's started only one of the Angels' last six games. Manager Mike Scioscia said placing Gentry on the disabled list remains a possibility. That would leave the Angels dangerously thin at left field, though Daniel Nava (knee) is expected to begin a rehab assignment next week. Rafael Ortega will continue to start in left field.
Sat, Apr 30, 2016 06:53:00 PM

Craig Gentry is starting in left field and batting second for the Angels in Friday's game against the Twins.

The Angels have been using a strict platoon of Gentry and Daniel Nava in left field and in the second spot in the lineup. With the Twins throwing lefty Tommy Milone, it's Gentry's turn.
