FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Red Sox have acquired Alejandro De Aza from the Orioles.

There's no word yet on what the Orioles will be getting in return or how much of what's remaining on his $5 million contract they might be picking up. De Aza was designated for assignment by Baltimore last Friday after batting just .214/.277/.359 over 30 games. Boston certainly isn't an ideal landing spot for him given all the other outfield options that they have.

Ryan Flaherty hit a two-run triple and scored a run in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

Flaherty's triple was part of a four-run second inning against Astros starter Collin McHugh. The triple, his second of the year, was Flaherty's only hit in three at-bats. Flaherty is hitting .276/.364/.517 in a part-time role this year.

Mike Wright took his first major league loss Tuesday, allowing five runs over five innings against the Astros.

Wright gave up eight hits, including two home runs, while walking one in the loss. It was easily his worst start since being promoted, as Wright had allowed just three runs total in his first three starts with the O's. Wright dropped to 2-1 with a 2.96 ERA and 1.03 WHIP with the loss. Wright will try to get back on track Sunday at the Indians.

An MRI on J.J. Hardy's left side came back negative.

The worry was that he might have a strained oblique, but that's not the case. Hardy is considered day-to-day for the time being.

Kevin Gausman (shoulder) threw a two-inning simulated game Tuesday without issue.

The next step for Gausman will be a three-inning minor league rehab start Saturday with High-A Frederick. If all continues to go smoothly, he should be an option for the Orioles around the middle of June. Though it's not exactly clear what his role will be.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Tuesday that J.J. Hardy is getting an MRI on his left oblique.

It sounds like Hardy may have a strained oblique, which would put him back on the disabled list. The 32-year-old has played in only 23 games this season for Baltimore. Ryan Flaherty is at shortstop on Tuesday night.
Jun 2 - 4:29 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez got a no-decision, holding the Astros to two runs in six innings, as the Orioles dropped Monday's contest.

Jimenez allowed his first run in the fifth inning on a Luis Valbuena solo home run. He started the seventh inning, but allowed a leadoff single to Chris Carter before being yanked. Carter would later come around to score. Jimenez gave up four hits on the night while walking two and striking out eight. Despite some recent struggles, he still has a terrific 3.12 ERA with a 1.16 WHIP and a 55/16 K/BB ratio over 57 2/3 innings. He'll try to get back into the win column for the first time since May 11 in his next start on the road against the Indians.

J.J. Hardy is not in Monday's lineup due to soreness in his left side.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter didn't want to say Hardy is dealing with a strained oblique, but that's almost surely what it is. If that's the case, it certainly could lead to another trip to the disabled list for the shortstop. Hardy has been limited to just 23 games this season due to injury.
Jun 1 - 6:38 PM

J.J. Hardy is absent from the Orioles' lineup Monday.

It appears to simply be a day of rest. Everth Cabrera is at shortstop with Hardy riding the pine.
Jun 1 - 5:30 PM

Jimmy Paredes is not in the Orioles' lineup Monday.

In the midst of a 1-for-22 funk, Paredes is getting a day off to regroup. Adam Jones is in the designated hitter spot, with David Lough covering center field.
Jun 1 - 5:29 PM

Adam Jones (ankle) is back in the Orioles' lineup Monday.

Jones has sat out the last two games with a sprained ankle but said Monday that he's feeling better. The All-Star outfielder is in the designated hitter spot Monday but could return to the outfield shortly. He sports a .304/.343/.457 batting line with six home runs this season.
Jun 1 - 5:24 PM

Matt Wieters (elbow) could rejoin the Orioles on Thursday in Houston, rather than on Friday in Cleveland as previously thought.

If that's the case, he would serve as the Orioles designated hitter in that first contest before working behind the dish the following game. He is fully recovered from his Tommy John surgery and will have no restrictions upon his return.
May 31 - 5:17 PM

Chris Tillman's struggles continued, taking his seventh loss after serving up six runs (five earned) in 4 2/3 innings against the Rays on Sunday.

The Rays rallied with two outs for four runs to break a 2-2 tie in the fifth inning. Steven Souza struck the big blow, slugging a three-run home run. After that, Tillman allowed a single to Asdrubal Cabrera before being lifted. He gave up nine hits and three walks while striking out seven on the afternoon. It's been a rough year for the right-hander, who owns an awful 5.94 ERA with a 1.64 WHIP and a 41/28 K/BB ratio over 53 innings. Tillman will look for improvement of any kind in his next start in Cleveland against the Indians.
May 31 - 5:15 PM

Delmon Young hit a pair of solo home runs, going 3-for-4 with a walk overall, but the Orioles dropped Sunday's contest to the Rays.

Young gave the O's an early 1-0 lead with a first-inning solo shot to left-center. He tied the game at 2-2 with a third-inning homer to left field. Both homers came off of Jake Odorizzi and marked his first two round-trippers of the season. Power aside, the 29-year-old Young has a decent triple-slash line at .303/.331/.395 with 13 RBI.
May 31 - 5:05 PM

Manny Machado homered twice in a 3-for-5 performance, but the Orioles were felled by the Rays on Sunday.

Machado hit a two-run shot in the seventh inning, bringing the Orioles off of life support, reducing their deficit to 7-4. He homered again in the bottom of the ninth to make it 9-5. Machado had been in a week-long rut. Sunday's performance brings his batting line up to .270/.333/.470 with eight home runs and 22 RBI on the year.
