BALTIMORE– An early season slump has cost an Orioles’ outfielder his roster spot.

The team has optioned OF Cedric Mullins to AAA.

Mullins, 24, was hitting .094 through 22 games, including a streak of 44 plate appearances that featured just two hits.

In late season action in 2018, Mullins gave some hopes that he could be a long term part of the team’s roster, after hitting .235 with 4 HR’s and 11 RBI’s over 45 games.

Now, he will seek to right himself in AAA.
