Henry Urrutia went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Saturday's loss to the Twins.

Urrutia hit an RBI double off Twins starter Kyle Gibson in the second inning for his one RBI knock of the game. He later picked up a single as well. Since being called up by the Orioles on August 15, he's accumulated multi-hit games in three of his first seven contests. He hit .292/.344/.414 with 10 homers and 50 RBI over 474 plate appearances with Triple-A Norfolk prior to the promotion. Owners in deeper AL-only leagues might want to take note and ride this hot little start.

Henry Urrutia slugged a walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to down the Mets on Wednesday.

The two clubs entered the bottom of the ninth inning knotted at 4-4. Urrutia didn't waste any time ending the game, leading off the frame with a walk-off home run against Carlos Torres. The outfielder, who was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday, used the walk-off to claim his first major league home run. Urrutia hit decently in the minors, posting a .292/.344/.414 batting line with 10 home runs and 50 RBI in 474 plate appearances, and could be worth a shot for those in AL-only leagues.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he plans to use Henry Urrutia in the outfield.

Urrutia worked hard to improve his defense while playing in Triple-A. Saturday will mark the 28-year-old's first start in the majors since September 10, 2013 against the Yankees. He'll DH and bat ninth against the Athletics.

Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports that the Orioles are expected to recall Henry Urrutia from Triple-A Norfolk on Friday.

Urrutia is having a terrific season at Triple-A, slashing .292/.344/.414 with 10 homers and 50 RBI in 107 games. Depending on how often he finds himself in the lineup, he's worth a gamble in AL-only formats.

Orioles optioned OF Henry Urrutia to Triple-A Norfolk.

The 28-year-old hit well in spring play, slashing .320/.379/.520 with a homer and seven RBI in 25 at-bats. If it wasn't for the strong depth that the O's have in the outfield at the big league level, he may have broken camp with the team. He should get an opportunity at some point during the 2015 season.

Henry Urrutia went 3-for-4 with a two-run double Friday against the Blue Jays.

The 28-year-old Cuban defector is 6-for-15 with a couple of walks and just one strikeout this spring. He could figure into the mix at DH if he keeps it up/

Orioles optioned OF Henry Urrutia to Triple-A Norfolk.

Urrutia was slowed this spring by shoulder soreness, but the Orioles are high on his future and should let him work his way into the corner outfield and DH mix at some point this spring. The 27-year-old Cuban hit .347/.406/.506 last year in the minor leagues.

Henry Urrutia went 2-for-4 with his first homer Friday as an Orioles split-squad and a Twins split-squad played to a 2-2 tie.

Urrutia's chances of making the Orioles took a big hit with the Nelson Cruz signing. He's also fought some shoulder soreness this spring, but he's hit .333 in 24 at-bats since returning to the lineup. While he'll most likely start the season in Triple-A, he could get a look in left field or at DH later on.

Urrutia was shut down for a couple of days due to soreness in his right shoulder. He received treatment and was able to play catch with no issue on Tuesday in camp. The young Cuban outfielder is trying to win a spot on the Opening Day roster, though the odds of that happening took a huge hit when the Orioles signed Nelson Cruz.
