Player Outlook
Jorge Mateo helped many fantasy managers to championships in 2022 when he swiped 35 bases and hit 13 home runs across 533 plate appearances for Baltimore. While he reached the 30-steal plateau again last season, most of his production came in the first half, before the Orioles began scaling back his playing time. Mateo totaled just 102 plate appearances after the All-Star break, adding one home run and seven RBI to go along with 10 steals in 12 attempts. There are obvious limitations with his bat and the Orioles appear set to hand the reins at shortstop to top prospect Jackson Holliday in the not-too-distant future, leaving Mateo to serve in a bench role. The playing-time trend last season tells us what we need to know entering 2024, though a trade could easily open up a path back to mixed-league relevance.

Fantasy News

  • Orioles' Jorge Mateo: On bench again Sunday

    Mateo is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. Mateo will remain on the bench in favor of Ramon Urias -- with Jordan Westburg at second base -- after Urias went 2-for-4 in Saturday's win. While it's a second straight absence for Mateo after four consecutive starts fresh off the 7-day concussion list, there has been no hint of an injury setback.

  • Orioles' Jorge Mateo: Breather Saturday

    Mateo is not in the starting lineup Saturday versus the Phillies, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. Mateo will take a seat after he went 2-for-13 with a three-run home run, two runs scored and a stolen base while starting four consecutive games after being activated from the 7-day injured list Tuesday. Jordan Westburg will slide over to second base while Ramon Urias enters the lineup at third base and bats ninth against Philadelphia.

  • Orioles' Jorge Mateo: Homers in return

    Mateo (concussion) went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Tuesday's 4-0 win over Atlanta. Mateo missed just over a week due to a concussion, and he provided a big blast in his first at-bat back from the injured list. His second-inning homer ended up being plenty of offense for Baltimore in this contest. Mateo his .246 over the 20 games prior to his absence, and he's at a .248/.295/.470 slash line with four homers, 16 RBI, 20 runs scored and 10 stolen bases through 43 contests overall. While he started at shortstop Tuesday to give Gunnar Henderson a breather, Mateo's playing time will likely be primarily at second base moving forward, which will push Jordan Westburg over to third and Ramon Urias back into a utility role.

  • Orioles' Jorge Mateo: Activated, starting Tuesday

    Mateo (concussion) was reinstated from the 7-day injured list and is starting at shortstop Tuesday against Atlanta, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports. The 28-year-old is back on Baltimore's active roster after missing little more than the seven-day minimum due to a concussion. Mateo has a .741 OPS with three homers and 10 steals through 42 contests this season and was operating as the Orioles' primary second baseman prior to the stint on the injured list.

  • Orioles' Jorge Mateo: Tuesday return possible

    Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said Mateo (concussion) won't be reinstated from the 7-day injured list when first eligible Monday but could be activated Tuesday, Jake Rill of MLB.comreports. The 28-year-old suffered the concussion June 2 against Tampa Bay and was able to ramp up his baseball work this weekend. Mateo won't be ready after spending the 7-day minimum on the shelf, but it appears his absence won't extend much beyond that.

  • Orioles' Jorge Mateo: Fielding, could hit Friday

    Mateo (concussion) took grounders Friday and could participate in batting practice, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports. Mateo was able to play catch Thursday and took another step forward in his rehab from the concussion he sustained June 2. The infielder appears to be on track to return next week.

  • Orioles' Jorge Mateo: Moves to 7-day IL

    The Orioles placed Mateo on the 7-day concussion injured list Monday. Mateo's move to the 7-day IL comes as little surprise after he entered MLB's concussion protocol when he was removed in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Rays after being inadvertently hit the back of the helmet by teammate Cedric Mullins, who was swinging in the on-deck circle alongside him. Ramon Urias came off the bench to replace Mateo, but the Orioles could turn to rookie Connor Norby -- who was called up from Triple-A Norfolk in a corresponding move -- to step in for Mateo as their new everyday second baseman.

  • Orioles' Jorge Mateo: Going through concussion protocol

    Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said Mateo is going through the concussion protocol after exiting Sunday's game versus the Rays, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports. Mateo was struck in the head by the bat of teammate Cedric Mullins around the on-deck circle and was subsequently removed from the contest. It remains to be seen if Mateo will miss additional time, and he should be considered day-to-day as he continues to be evaluated.

  • Orioles' Jorge Mateo: Departs with head injury

    Mateo was removed from Sunday's game against the Rays with an apparent head injury, Melanie Newman of MASN reports. The 28-year-old appeared to be struck in the head by a bat around the on-deck circle during the fourth inning and was replaced by a pinch hitter shortly thereafter. He singled in his lone plate appearance before exiting the contest. The specifics of the injury are unclear, but Mateo is likely being evaluated for a concussion.

  • Orioles' Jorge Mateo: Logs steal Sunday

    Mateo went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and a stolen base in Sunday's 4-1 win over the White Sox. Mateo has racked up five steals while going 6-for-23 (.261) over his last eight games. The infielder is up to 10 thefts on the year, putting him roughly on pace to challenge for a third straight 30-steal campaign. He's slashing .247/.302/.464 with three home runs, nine RBI, 18 runs scored, 10 doubles and a triple over 108 plate appearances, though he's seen a starting role at second base for most of May.

  • Orioles' Jorge Mateo: Getting rest Saturday

    Mateo is not in the Orioles' starting lineup Saturday against the White Sox. After going 1-for-2 with a three-run home run, two stolen bases and two walks Thursday, Mateo went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Friday's 6-4 win over Chicago. He'll take a seat to begin Saturday's contest, as the Orioles start Ramon Urias at third base against White Sox right-hander Erick Fedde.

  • Orioles' Jorge Mateo: Big day on offense

    Mateo went 2-for-2 with a three-run home run, a stolen base and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Tigers while also drawing two walks. Mateo walked and stole second in his opening plate appearance before coming around to score on an Adley Rutschman single. The second baseman then broke open a 2-2 game with a three-run shot in the fourth and went on to reach base four times in the contest. The home run was Mateo's third of the season and he's now hit safely in six of his last seven games, going 7-for-22 (.318) over that stretch with four RBI, six runs scored and four stolen bases.

  • Orioles' Jorge Mateo: Exits starting nine Wednesday

    Mateo is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports. After playing the final three innings of Tuesday's suspended game earlier Wednesday and finishing 1-for-3 with an RBI double in Baltimore's 3-1 loss, Mateo will get a breather for the regularly scheduled game. Jordan Westburg will shift over from third base and man the keystone in place of Mateo, whose streak of seven consecutive starts comes to an end.

  • Orioles' Jorge Mateo: Adds another steal Sunday

    Mateo went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Mariners. Mateo has a steal in each of the last two games, giving him seven thefts on the year. The infielder has gone 11-for-42 (.262) over 14 games in May, lifting his season slash line to .259/.299/.457 over 89 plate appearances. Sunday was the first time in four contests he didn't record an extra-base hit, though there typically isn't an abundance of power in his game. Mateo should continue to occupy a starting role at second base as long as he's hitting well.

  • Orioles' Jorge Mateo: Not starting Sunday

    Mateo is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks. Mateo will hit the bench after he had started at second base in each of the last three games while going 3-for-11 with an RBI and three runs scored. Jordan Westburg will shift over from third base to cover the keystone in place of Mateo.

  • Orioles' Jorge Mateo: Not in Tuesday's lineup

    Mateo is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game at Washington, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. Mateo started the previous four games and will head to the bench after going 3-for-14 with two homers. Jordan Westburg will shift to the keystone while Ramon Urias starts at third base.

  • Orioles' Jorge Mateo: Pops second homer in three days

    Mateo went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Reds. While not known for his power, Mateo has run into a couple in recent days for his first two homers of the 2024 season. Saturday's start was the third straight for Mateo, as he has been playing regularly at second base since Jackson Holliday was demoted to Triple-A. Speed is Mateo's greatest asset for fantasy managers; he has five steals this season and cleared 30 stolen bases in just 116 games last year.

  • Orioles' Jorge Mateo: Knocks first homer

    Mateo went 1-for-2 with a solo home run, an additional RBI and a hit-by-pitch in Thursday's 7-2 win over the Yankees. Mateo's first homer of the year gave the Orioles a 2-1 lead in the fourth inning, and they never looked back. He tacked on another RBI with a sacrifice fly in the fifth. His playing time has trended up since Jackson Holliday was demoted to Triple-A Norfolk, and Mateo has gone 3-for-11 with two extra-base hits over his last five games. The utility man is slashing .268/.340/.488 with three RBI, seven runs scored, four stolen bases and six doubles over 47 plate appearances.

  • Orioles' Jorge Mateo: Logs fourth steal

    Mateo went 0-for-2 with a walk, a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 7-0 win over the Athletics. Mateo has seen limited playing time this season, though he could get more looks after Jackson Holliday was sent down to Triple-A Norfolk on Friday. Through 35 plate appearances, Mateo is slashing .250/.314/.406 with four steals, one RBI, five runs scored and five doubles. He's unlikely to take a full-time role from Jordan Westburg, Ramon Urias or Cedric Mullins, but Mateo offers utility value and speed while playing primarily versus left-handed pitchers.

  • Orioles' Jorge Mateo: Swipes two bags Monday

    Mateo went 0-for-3 with a walk, a run and two stolen bases in Monday's 4-2 win against the Angels. Mateo made his second start in three games and used his legs to help the Orioles score their second run, following a third-inning walk with a pair of thefts before coming home on an Adley Rutschman single. The performance was indicative of what Mateo brings to Baltimore -- he's an elite base stealer when he's able to reach, but with a career .224 batting average and .271 OBP, that doesn't happen enough to keep him in the lineup consistently. From a fantasy perspective, Mateo is most useful as a base-stealing specialist in leagues that allow daily lineup changes.
