Cedric Mullins News
Baltimore Orioles outfielder Cedric Mullins is out of the starting lineup Thursday versus the Boston Red Sox and left-hander Chris Sale. The 28-year-old started against a left-hander in the Nationals' Patrick Corbin on Wednesday and doubled while scoring a run and striking out twice in his club's 5-1 victory. Although Mullins' splits aren't terribly worse against left-handed pitching this season, it's an opportunity for the Orioles to get him off his feet against a pitcher who has been one of the tougher left-handers in the game over his career. For the season, the outfielder is hitting .238 with 15 home runs and 19 stolen bases in 112 games while making multiple trips to the injured list with groin issues.
Baltimore Orioles outfielder Cedric Mullins played his part in Monday's 11-5 slugfest win over the Cardinals. Mullins went 2-for-3 with a single, a grand slam, and a walk. The 28-year-old has dealt with injuries this season but has produced when healthy, slashing .251/.328/.452 with 14 home runs, 67 RBI, and 17 stolen bases in 390 plate appearances. He should remain a fantasy asset down the stretch whenever he is in the lineup.
Baltimore Orioles outfielder Cedric Mullins remains out of the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Los Angeles Angels. The 28-year-old will miss his second game in a row with the O's facing back-to-back left-handed starters. The O's will deploy Austin Hays, Aaron Hicks, and Anthony Santander will the outfield versus lefty Patrick Sandoval on Wednesday. The assumption is that Mullins will return to the lineup after this contest.
Cedric Mullins did not repeat his outstanding 2021 season, slashing .258/.318/.403 with 16 HR and 34 SB last season. Fantasy managers can likely count on another 30+ steals, but the rest of Mullins's profile has more questions than answers. His HR/FB was cut in half from 15.5% in 2021 to 7.8% last year. The Orioles moving the fences in is partially responsible for this change, but Mullins also lost a full tick of average airborne exit velocity (92.4 mph to 91.3) and a substantial percentage of his Brls/BBE (8.1% to 4.9%). Put simply, the homers aren't coming back. Despite that, Mullins put up a 43.4 FB% and 13.6 IFFB% last year which would be expected of a true slugger. That puts downward pressure on his BABIP and batting average, and his .232 xBA suggests that Mullins was fortunate to hit nearly .260 last season. Mullins offers solid plate discipline (7 BB%, 18.8 K%), hits at the top of Baltimore's improving lineup, and speed, but you shouldn't have to take a hit in the power and BA categories at an ADP of 49.15.
