Baltimore Orioles C Steve Clevenger will be placed on the paternity list Monday, Aug. 24.
Fantasy Tip: Clevenger ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has played well of late with a .395/.422/.535 slash line over 45 plate appearances with the Orioles this season, including an active seven-game hitting streak. Check back for updates on when Clevenger will rejoin the team, and avoid him in all fantasy formats until then.

Baltimore Orioles C Steve Clevenger is hitting .414/.452/.586 during his career-high seven-game hitting streak, and he has hit safely in 10 of his 12 games with the team.
Fantasy Tip: The O's are riding the hot hand with Clevenger ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) right now, mainly at designated hitter, leaving Jimmy Paredes to a bench role. This won't last for Clevenger, but while he's seeing the ball well, he's a great deep sleeper pick on FantasyScore, and he'll help save you a ton of salary cap space, too.

Baltimore Orioles C Steve Clevenger had a three-run home run Monday, Aug. 17, against the Oakland Athletics. It was his first homer since June 29, 2012.

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 17. C Steve Clevenger is batting sixth as the designated hitter, and C Caleb Joseph is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray Monday.
Fantasy Tip: Wieters ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) sounds close to returning, but he could also land on the disabled list, if it is deemed he is unable to play. Check back for an update, as he is testing his hamstring Monday. Against Gray ($9,600, 19.2% of cap), Joseph ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) and Clevenger ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) are low-end catcher options at FanasyScore. Although, Clevenger presents significant cap relief and is hitting in a prime lineup spot.

Baltimore Orioles 2B Jimmy Paredes is out of the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 16, against the Oakland Athletics. C Steve Clevenger will serve as the designated hitter and hit sixth in the order against RHP Kendall Graveman.
Fantasy Tip: Clevenger went 0-for-3 in his return to the lineup Saturday, and he'll need to get consistent playing time before becoming a FantasyScore option.

Baltimore Orioles C Caleb Joseph is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 3. C Steve Clevenger is starting and hitting sixth in the batting order against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers.
Fantasy Tip: Clevenger ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) only has eight at-bats on the season, but he does have four hits in limited duty. Regardless, you should ignore him on FantasyScore.

Baltimore Orioles 1B Chris Davis has served his full suspension and will be back in the lineup Tuesday, April 7, against the Tampa Bay Rays. C Steve Clevenger was sent to Triple-A Norfolk.
Fantasy Tip: Davis ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) didn't have the best of seasons last year, and this was before the suspension at the end of the year. Davis should have a favorable matchup with Tampa Bay SP Nathan Karns, so he is worth picking up for Tuesday's game.
