  • Orioles' Kyle Stowers: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Orioles optioned Stowers to Triple-A Norfolk on Friday, Matt Weyrich of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Stowers is tied for the Grapefruit League lead with seven home runs this spring, but ultimately it still wasn't enough to force his way onto the Orioles' crowded roster. The 26-year-old will be given regular playing time at Norfolk while awaiting another shot in the majors.

  • Orioles' Kyle Stowers: Making case for bench spot

    Stowers hit three home runs in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Tigers to bring his total to seven homers this spring. He is batting .275/.286/.800 through 17 exhibition games.

    Stowers has minor-league options remaining and there are a number of fresh faces pushing to make the Orioles' Opening Day roster. While the power numbers this spring look good, his 1:12 BB:K is less impressive (and arguably more meaningful in a small sample). Strikeouts have been an issue for Stowers at the upper levels -- the 26-year-old has three home runs and a 31.3 percent strikeout rate in 131 major-league plate appearances to date. He's also limited defensively to the outfield corners.

  • Orioles' Kyle Stowers: Solid showing early in camp

    Stowers has been hitting lefties well during live batting practice sessions in camp, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Stowers is 1-for-5 in Grapefruit League play as well, with his lone hit a solo home run off Atlanta lefty Dylan Lee. Kubatko notes the Orioles' competition for outfield spots will be a challenging one -- Austin Hays, Cedric Mullins and Anthony Santander are virtual locks for starting roles. Stowers is among a group of four or five players competing for two spots at most on the Opening Day roster, so he'll need to continue to put together good at-bats, against all pitchers, to open the campaign in Baltimore.

  • Orioles' Kyle Stowers: Activated off minor-league IL

    Stowers (nose) was activated from the injured list Friday at Triple-A Norfolk, Steve Melewski of MASNSports.com reports.

    Stowers only wound up missing a couple of weeks because of a fractured nose. The 25-year-old outfielder has struggled in limited action this season at the major-league level but carries a .942 OPS with 18 homers and 51 RBI in 67 minor-league games.

  • Orioles' Kyle Stowers: Suffers fractured nose

    Triple-A Norfolk placed Stowers on its 7-day injured list Wednesday due to a fractured nose, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports.

    Stowers took a pitch to the face Tuesday in Norfolk's win over Worcester. Given the timing and severity of the injury, Stowers' season could very well be over. The 25-year-old outfielder went 2-for-30 (.067 average) between two different stints with the Orioles back in April and May, but he was sporting a respectable .849 OPS through 60 games this season with Norfolk.

  • Orioles' Kyle Stowers: Active at Triple-A

    Stowers (shoulder) was activated from the injured list at Triple-A Norfolk and went 0-for-3 with two walks and one strikeout Friday against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Stowers hit .560 with four home runs in seven rehab games, split between the Florida Complex League and High-A Aberdeen. The 25-year-old outfielder hit .067 with a 36.4 percent strikeout rate in 33 plate appearances for the big club earlier this year. He may have missed his chance to carve out a role, as the big-league outfield is pretty crowded following the recent promotion of top prospect Colton Cowser.

  • Orioles' Kyle Stowers: Begins rehab assignment

    Stowers (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with the Orioles' Florida Complex League affiliate on Thursday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Stowers has been on the injured list at Triple-A Norfolk for more than a month with right shoulder inflammation but is finally ready to test things out in a game situation. He should return to Norfolk's active roster soon, provided he has no setbacks.

  • Orioles' Kyle Stowers: Shelved at Triple-A

    Triple-A Norfolk placed Stowers on its 7-day injured list Tuesday with right shoulder inflammation, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    After being optioned to Triple-A last week, Stowers appeared in five games and went 3-for-18 before being deactivated due to the injury. Though the shoulder issue doesn't sound overly serious, Stowers' move to the IL will likely delay any potential return to the big leagues.

  • Orioles' Kyle Stowers: Demoted to Triple-A

    The Orioles optioned Stowers to Triple-A Norfolk on Monday.

    Stowers will head back to Norfolk after he went 2-for-26 with no extra-base hits and nine strikeouts over 11 games since being recalled April 30. The outfielder is batting just .067 over 30 at-bats this season with the Orioles and will look to get right with Norfolk before potentially returning to Baltimore later this season. Reliever Logan Gillaspie was called up from Triple-A on Monday and will replace Stowers on the 26-man roster.

  • Orioles' Kyle Stowers: Riding pine Saturday

    Stowers is not in Saturday's lineup against the Pirates.

    Despite a righty (Roansy Contreras) being on the hill for Pittsburgh, Stowers will head to the bench while Ryan O'Hearn picks up a start at designated hitter. Stowers is 2-for-22 (.091 AVG) with zero home runs in 10 games since getting recalled from Triple-A on April 30.
