A bobblehead of Chicago’s famous SS Tim Anderson’s bat flip against the Kansas City Royals in 2019 was due out on Friday. Some were distributed to fans who entered the guaranteed rate field before the game rained. The rest will be distributed on Saturday.
âIt’s dope,â Anderson said before the rain. âI think everyone remembers that moment. I’m excited. Hopefully we can hand them out. We were supposed to hand them out last year, but we all know what happened there. we can finally pass them on to the people.
âIt shows exactly what I’m doing and what I’ve done. I’m really happy with it. “
Orioles 1B Trey Mancini was out of the lineup posted on Friday after being hit by a right elbow throw in the first inning on Thursday. “We dodged a bullet with Mancini,” manager Brandon Hyde said. “He’s feeling a lot better. The elbow is still sore, but he thinks he should be ready to go the next day or two.”
Hyde is hopeful that OF / 1B Ryan Mountcastle (left hand) can start one of the series’ matches.
OF Adam Engel (outstretched right shank) is in rehab with Triple-A after missing the first two months of the season. He says it’s just a matter of getting enough batsmen and reps in the outfield at this point.
“I feel really good in the leg and I keep going up,” Engel said on Friday. “I hope to return to Chicago here very soon.”
