    The Orioles placed Kjerstad on the 7-day concussion injured list Saturday.

    Kjerstad was scratched from Saturday's lineup after participating in pregame drills, and he'll now land on the 7-day IL as a result of getting hit in the head by a pitch Friday. Kyle Stowers was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk to replenish Baltimore's outfield depth.

  • Orioles' Heston Kjerstad: Scratched Saturday

    Kjerstad (head) was scratched from Baltimore's lineup ahead of Saturday's game versus the Yankees.

    Kjerstad was originally slated to return to left field just a day after getting hit in the head by a pitch Friday, but he wasn't feeling 100 percent during pregame drills, per Andy Kostka of TheBaltimoreBanner.com, and he'll now sit out as a precaution. Austin Hays will cover left field instead and bat eighth.

  • Orioles' Heston Kjerstad: Hit in head, exits game

    Kjerstad was removed from Friday's game against the Yankees after getting hit in the head by a pitch, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports.

    Kjerstad managed to turn away from the pitch, so the 96.8 mph two-seamer from Clay Holmes hit off the back of his helmet, but he was still shaken up enough to call for his removal in the ninth inning. The Orioles' training staff will examine Hjerstad in the clubhouse and put him through the concussion protocol.
