Orioles place Anthony Santander in COVID-19 protocol
The Baltimore Orioles placed outfielder Anthony Santander on the COVID-19 injured list.
The Orioles recalled Ryan McKenna in a corresponding roster move. D.J. Stewart will join Cedric Mullins and Austin Hays in the outfield on Wednesday afternoon against right-hander Michael Wacha and the Tampa Bay Rays. Stewart will bat fifth.
numberFire’s models project Stewart for 8.2 FanDuel points and he has a $2,000 salary on Wednesday. Wacha's xBA (.291), xSLG (.521), and xwOBA (.374) all rank in at least the bottom four percent of the majors this season, among qualified starters.
