Orioles manager Buck Showalter told reporters that Darren O'Day is likely to get a cortisone injection in his right elbow.

O'Day was supposed to throw a bullpen on Wednesday, but the right-hander wasn't feeling healthy enough to do so. If he received the injection, the Orioles will likely have the right-hander wait at least a few days to see how he responds, and then proceed from there. It's very unlikely we see him back on the mound before the end of May.

Mark Trumbo (knee) is not in the lineup for Thursday's tilt against the White Sox.

It makes back-to-back games that Trumbo will be out of the lineup because of the knee trouble. Baltimore manager Buck Showalter told reporters that if Trumbo doesn't show improvement on Friday, he'll be reevaluated for a possible DL stint. Craig Gentry will play right field and hit seventh against Lucas Giolito.

Jace Peterson went 1-for-3 and drove home the Orioles' lone run in Wednesday's lopsided loss to the White Sox.

Peterson's RBI single off of Dylan Covey in the second inning gave the Orioles an early 1-0 lead, but that would wind up being the extent of their offense. After a hot start, Peterson has come crashing back to Earth and is now slashing a putrid .192/.314/.274 with zero homers and nine RBI through 86 plate appearances.

Alex Cobb was hammered in Wednesday's loss to the White Sox, giving up six runs on eight hits in only 3 2/3 innings of work.

The right-hander struck out three and walked two on the night. The big blow against him was a three-run blast by Yoan Moncada during a four-run third inning. Perhaps signing late and missing most of spring training made more of an impact than anticipated. The 30-year-old hurler is now 1-6 on the season with a miserable 7.32 ERA and unimaginable 1.93 WHIP over 39 1/3 innings in his first eight starts. He shouldn't be started in any fantasy leagues until he shows some signs of turning this around.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter told reporters that Darren O'Day's elbow didn't feel well enough for him to throw a bullpen session.

Showalter also mentioned that further testing might be required. It would make sense that O'Day would be shut down to let the pain subside, and then the Orioles can reevaluate where the right-hander stands before making further decisions. For now, it seems unlikely he's back before the end of May.

Mark Trumbo is out of the lineup against the White Sox on Friday with a right knee injury.

Trumbo gets the night off while dealing with the knee trouble, and Danny Valencia is getting the start at DH against Chicago and hitting sixth against Dylan Covey. He's considered day-to-day, so Trumbo could be back in the lineup by the end of the week. There's also a chance that he could get placed on the 10-day disabled list if the Orioles aren't confident he'll be back soon.

Mark Trumbo went 4-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI on Tuesday as the Orioles fell to the White Sox.

Unlike the rest of his teammates, Trumbo had no trouble figuring out James Shields in this one, collecting four of his team's seven total hits in the game. His RBI double got the O's on the board as part of a two-run second inning. Trumbo is now hitting .309/.317/.469 with two homers and eight RBI in his first 82 plate appearances on the season. Fantasy owners should be patient here, the power will come.

Kevin Gausman delivered a dominant performance in a no-decision against the White Sox on Tuesday, matching his career high with 10 strikeouts over 6 1/3 scoreless innings.

The 27-year-old hurler scattered nine hits and a walk, throwing 76 of his 106 pitches for strikes in the ballgame. The White Sox had at least one hitter reach against him in every inning except the fourth, but Gausman was able to make key pitches when he needed to the most. He has proven to be a useful mixed league commodity, registering a 3.48 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 58/15 K/BB ratio over his 62 innings. He'll look to carry over the momentum from this terrific outing when he takes on the Rays in Tampa Bay on Sunday.
May 22 - 11:37 PM

Adam Jones hit a solo homer and drew a walk Monday in the Orioles' defeat of the White Sox.

Jones slugged the O's third home run of the night in the top of the sixth inning off White Sox left-hander Hector Santiago. The veteran center fielder has a .268/.288/.453 batting line with eight home runs and 24 RBI in 46 games this season.
May 21 - 11:34 PM

Mark Trumbo hit his second home run of the year Monday in the Orioles' win over the White Sox.

But he struck out in his other three at-bats. Trumbo, 32, is slashing .273/.282/.416 in 19 games since returning May 1 from a severe quadriceps strain. He's drawn one walk against 22 strikeouts.
May 21 - 11:32 PM

Andrew Cashner allowed two runs on eight hits over five innings Monday in a win over the White Sox.

It wasn't the cleanest outing -- Cashner also walked three batters, on top of the eight hits -- but the veteran right-hander managed to pitch out of jams for his second victory of the season. He'll carry a 2-5 record, 4.72 ERA, and 1.55 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Rays.
May 21 - 11:30 PM

Brad Brach tallied his seventh save of the season on Monday night against the White Sox.

Brach put three batters on in the bottom of the ninth inning -- one of them via an intentional walk of Jose Abreu -- but he wound up striking out the side. Brach will hold on to the O's closer gig until Zach Britton is ready to return from a torn Achilles sometime in early-to-mid June.
May 21 - 11:24 PM

Manny Machado clubbed his 15th home run of the season Monday in the Orioles' 3-2 defeat of the White Sox.

It was a fourth-inning solo shot off White Sox left-hander Hector Santiago. Machado also drew a walk in the victory, finishing 1-for-3 with one RBI and one run scored. The 25-year-old impending free agent superstar is batting .343/.420/.663 with the 15 dingers and 43 RBI in 47 total games this season.

Darren O'Day (elbow) is likely to need a rehab assignment before being activated.

The Orioles initially hoped to have O'Day back this past weekend, but they've decided to proceed more cautiously with his rehab. He will throw another bullpen session Tuesday and might be ready for a rehab appearance after that.
May 21 - 6:36 PM

The Orioles plan for Zach Britton (Achilles) to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Norfolk on May 30.

He'll obviously need a handful of rehab appearances before being activated. Coming back from a ruptured Achilles tendon, Britton has been throwing off a mound for nearly a month and will throw a simulated game Tuesday. He would seem to be tracking toward a return in mid-June if all goes well.
