Rios took the field as part of a double-switch in the bottom of the ninth and struck out in the top of the 10th. The Marlins broke through for a win in the next half-inning. Rios has hit .284/.313/.399 with four home runs, 49 RBI and 16 stolen bases in 444 at-bats.
Reddick hadn't homered since slugging two of them on Aug. 3, and he's mixed a few multihit games in with several hitless performances over the last two weeks. Reddick has hit .255/.310/.432 with nine home runs and 37 RBI in 271 at-bats.
Martinez waited until the eighth inning to strike. He led off the inning by taking a 75 mph curveball out to center field for the solo shot. Martinez would also single during the contest. He finished 2 for 5, with one run scored and one RBI.
Arcia struck immediately. With two men on in the first inning, Arcia took an 84 mph changeup out to right for the three-run shot. It was his only hit of the game. Arcia would finished 1 for 4, with one run scored and three RBI.
His season took a sharp turn thereafter, his ownership rate plummeting from 77 to 23 percent as he hit just .173 (14 for 81) from July 5 to Aug. 16. The Orioles lost faith, routinely sitting him for David Lough and Delmon Young, and all hope seemed lost for the 31-year-old journeyman.
But I ended that stretch at Aug. 16 for a reason. In two games since, he's 5 for 10 with three doubles and a homer. It's a laughably small sample size, but given what he provided in the weeks leading up to it, it stands out. And particularly if you play in a standard Rotisserie league, where each team starts five outfielders and a third corner infielder, you may want to make a move for him depending how his next couple games go.
Given his minor-league track record, which includes a career .294 batting average and .893 OPS as well as a 31-homer season in 2007, I think he could go the way of Brandon Moss, another minor-league slugger presumed to be a Quadruple-A player until a team finally gave him an extended look. Of course, the Orioles will have to stick with Pearce for him to have that chance, but I wouldn't dismiss him just yet.
Rios has been dealing with the issue for a while, but has been able to play through it. He was unable to hit prior to the game Tuesday, which is why he was scratched. Rios is hitting .284/.313/.400 over 443 at-bats.
Springer has been attempting to come back from a knee issue. He was able to take batting practice and stretch on the field prior to Tuesday's game. It's unclear when the club expects him to return to action. He's been out since July 19 due to the injury.
Holt will take Ryan Raburn's spot on the roster. Holt is hitting .305/.416/.382 at Triple-A. He's been up in the majors this season, and has hit .385 over 13 at-bats.
Craig is at Fenway Park Tuesday to be evaluated and take batting practice. If that goes well, he'll play the outfield in a rehab game Wednesday. Craig is attempting to return from a foot injury.
Marisnick was not in Sunday's lineup, but was back starting at left field Tuesday. Marisnick is hitting .293/.311/.397 in 16 games since the Astros acquired him from the Marlins.
