Orioles' Travis Lakins: Goes to 60-day IL

The Orioles transferred Lakins (elbow) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Sunday. Lakins has been on the injured list since May 20 and wasn't on track to return before the All-Star break, so the Orioles opted to move him to the 60-day IL in order to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for right-handed reliever Rico Garcia. Though he'll be eligible to return immediately after the All-Star break, Lakins has yet to begin a minor-league rehab assignment, so his absence could end up stretching into August.

Orioles' Travis Lakins: Placed on injured list

Lakins was placed on the 15-day injured list with right elbow inflammation Friday, retroactive to May 12, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports. Lakins was sent down Thursday, but he'll have his option reversed after being placed on the injured list. He'll be sidelined until at least late May, but it's not yet clear whether he'll be forced to spend more than the minimum of 15 days on the IL.

Orioles' Travis Lakins: Sent down Thursday

Lakins was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday. Lakins was called up by Baltimore on Tuesday, and he allowed two runs on two hits and two walks while striking out two in two relief innings during Wednesday's loss to the Cardinals. The right-hander has a 9.58 ERA in 10.1 innings over six major-league appearances this year and will head back to the minors as part of a move after Denyi Reyes' contract was selected Thursday.

Orioles' Travis Lakins: Back with big club

The Orioles recalled Lakins from Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday. Lakins never reported to Norfolk after he was optioned to the affiliate following Sunday's doubleheader, as he was instead included on the Orioles' taxi squad ahead of their three-game series in St. Louis. He'll end up rejoining the 26-man active roster after fellow reliever Jorge Lopez (personal) was placed on the bereavement list. Lopez is expected to miss at least the next three games, but if he rejoins the Orioles this weekend in Detroit, Lakins will be the logical candidate to move back off the active roster.

Orioles' Travis Lakins: Heads back to minors

Lakins was returned to Triple-A Norfolk following Sunday's doubleheader against the Royals, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. Lakins served as the 27th man during Sunday's twin bill, but he didn't appear in either game. The right-hander has posted a 9.72 ERA and 1.92 WHIP in 8.1 innings over five relief appearances in the majors this year, and he'll attempt to sort things out in Norfolk.

Orioles' Travis Lakins: Up for doubleheader

The Orioles recalled Lakins from Triple-A Norfolk ahead of Sunday's doubleheader with the Royals. Lakins will provide the Orioles with an extra arm out of the bullpen for the twin bill, but he'll likely be bound for Norfolk at the conclusion of the doubleheader. The right-hander has previously made five appearances for Baltimore this season, covering 8.1 innings while giving up nine earned runs on 12 hits and four walks.

Orioles' Travis Lakins: Optioned off roster

Lakins was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Friday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. Lakins struggled through five relief appearances during his time on the team, giving up nine runs on 12 hits and four walks in 8.1 innings of work. His roster spot will be taken by Logan Allen, who was claimed off waivers from Cleveland.

Orioles' Travis Lakins: Works three innings

Lakins allowed a run on one hit and a walk with two strikeouts in three innings in Sunday's 7-6 loss to the Angels. Chris Ellis (shoulder) exited his start with the bases loaded before he could record an out. Lakins was brought into the game on fairly short notice, and he immediately gave up a grand slam to Jo Adell before throwing three hitless innings after that. The Orioles' rotation is already in shambles with John Means (elbow) out for the year and Dean Kremer (oblique) hurt early on. Lakins hasn't regularly worked as a starter in the minors since 2017, but he could be an option to either open games or serve as a piggyback reliever. The right-hander is 0-1 with five runs allowed in five innings across three appearances this season.

Orioles' Travis Lakins: Takes loss in season debut

Lakins (0-1) allowed four runs on five hits and a walk in one inning, taking the loss versus the Yankees on Saturday. Lakins entered the game after a weather delay, and the Yankees promptly pummeled him. Josh Donaldson dealt the biggest blow with a two-run home run. That's not a great season debut for Lakins, who struggled to a 5.79 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 24:17 K:BB in 28 innings last year. He's been a reliever for most of his time at the upper levels of the minors, so he'll probably be limited to a multi-inning role while with the Orioles this season.

Orioles' Travis Lakins: Reassigned to minor-league camp

Lakins was reassigned to minor-league camp Wednesday, Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports. Lakins was sidelined for the second half of the 2021 campaign due to an elbow injury, but he was fully healthy for spring training this year. He posted a 3.68 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 7.1 innings across his four relief appearances in the Grapefruit League but will be forced to start the regular season at Triple-A Norfolk.

Orioles' Travis Lakins: Outrighted to Triple-A

Lakins (elbow) was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. Lakins missed the second half of the 2021 campaign after he underwent elbow surgery, and he'll lose his spot on the 40-man roster heading into the offseason. The right-hander has a chance to return in time for spring training in 2022 after he posted a 5.79 ERA and 1.43 WHIP in 28 innings across 24 appearances (one start) this season.

Orioles RHP Travis Lakins undergoes elbow surgery

Orioles right-hander Travis Lakins Sr. underwent surgery this morning to address a recurrent olecranon stress fracture in his throwing elbow, manager Brandon Hyde told reporters, including Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com. The hope is that Lakins will be ready for Spring Training in 2022, although that doesn’t seem to be a foregone conclusion.
