Jorge Mateo Retreats To The Bench Monday – MLB News

15 hours agoBaltimore Orioles infielder Jorge Mateo is on the bench for Monday’s contest against the visiting Kansas City Royals. The middle infielder went 1-for-2 with a strikeout in Sunday’s 4-1 loss to the Los Angeles Angels before being lifted for the lefty-swinging Tony Kemp. Mateo got off to a strong start last season but struggled mightily afterward and finished with a .217 batting average alongside seven home runs across 116 appearances. He did steal 32 bases, however, but is in line to see much less playing time this season, as indicated by his six plate appearances through his team’s first three games this season. He boasts plenty of speed but his lack of playing time leaves him well off the fantasy radar in the 2024 campaign.Brenton Kemp – RotoBaller
