Paredes went 2-for-6 in a 13-inning loss to the Marlins on Saturday night.

Paredes just continues to rake -- the two-hit performance actually lowered his average to an impressive .352. That's now five hits in the last two games, and at the rate he's going, he could find himself in the All-Star Game come July. Go pick him up if he's not owned already.

Paredes went 3-for-5 with an RBI in Friday's win over the Marlins.

The Orioles continue to make sure Paredes gets in the lineup every day with his hot bat, playing second base Friday. He is now slashing .353/.385/.603 on the season. The Orioles are visiting Miami this weekend, so the DH is not a possibility. If there is a time to give Paredes a day off, it could come Saturday or Sunday.

Paredes went 3-for-5 Saturday with a triple and his fifth home run of the season.

Just when it seemed like his hot start was proving to be a mirage, Paredes has now put together an eight game hitting streak and has two home runs in his last three games. His slash line remains an impressive .347/.373/.681 on the season.

Paredes has been taking work at first base according to Buck Showalter, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports.

Paredes has been red-hot in his eight major league games this season, slashing .429/.444/.857 with three homers, four doubles, a triple, and nine RBI so the club is likely just looking for ways to keep his bat in the lineup. He'll get the start as the team's designated hitter and bat second in Monday's contest against the White Sox.

Paredes was 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in a losing cause against Boston Friday night.

It was his second home run - he hit his first on Wednesday night - and he now has four RBI to go with a .320 average. He's going well right now and the Orioles have injuries which could help him garner at bats over the next couple of weeks. He served as the designated hitter in this one, and finding a spot for him to play defensively will be the main challenge.

Paredes provided both his first homer and his first steal of the year Wednesday in a loss to Toronto.

The two-run homer also accounted for Paredes' first runs batted in this season. He's off to a spectacular start, having gone 7-for-16 (.438) with five runs scored in four games since returning from injury to claim a place in the Baltimore lineup.

Paredes will serve as the DH for the second straight game Sunday against the Red Sox, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Paredes has now started each game he's been available for the Orioles, but will move up to second in the order Sunday afternoon. He went 2-for-5 at the dish with a double and a run scored Saturday.

Paredes has been activated from the DL and will DH Saturday, Rich Dubroff of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

This might be an earlier return than the Orioles planned, as Paredes is returning to replace the injured Jonathan Schoop. Paredes has only played DH for three games in his career, so they're likely playing it safe for now with him.

Paredes (back) will start a rehab assignment with Double-A Bowie on Friday, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.

Paredes is scheduled to move his assignment up to Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday, indicating that it won't be long before he joins the Orioles. He may be available at the beginning of next week, but he probably won't get regular at-bats once he's with the big-league club. While the Orioles have a clear need for another right-handed bat in the outfield, Paredes is 17-for-101 (.168 batting average) from the right side of the plate in his career, with 29 strikeouts and just one home run.

Paredes (back) played right field Wednesday and will take batting practice and meet with manager Buck Showalter before deciding whether he will go on a rehab assignment that day or Friday instead, MASN Sports reports.

Paredes is starting to close in on a return after beginning the season on the disabled list. It appears the earliest would be some point next week assuming his back suffers no setbacks, but a more concrete timetable should emerge as that time nears.
