Paredes went 2-for-4 with his 10th homer of the year and two RBI in Wednesday's win over Texas.

In late May and early June, it started to look like Paredes' magical early-season run was done for good and he'd go back to being the mediocre-at-best hitter he's always been before this season. However, he ended up getting red-hot in the middle of last month and ended up closing June with a .319 average, which matches his current season mark. Clearly, July's off to a good start, but it's going to be hard for Paredes to sustain his .394 BABIP and 21.3 HR/FB rate -- few hitters this side of Mike Trout have the capability to do that.

Paredes was a late scratch from Friday's lineup, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.

Paredes is healthy, but the O's switched Adam Jones from center field to DH, meaning Paredes was no longer able to occupy his typical role at DH. Make sure he is out of daily lineups Friday.

Paredes is out of the lineup Thursday, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.

The Orioles do not have a DH spot in the lineup as they conclude a series in Philadelphia on Thursday, but Paredes should get more at-bats in this weekend's series as the Orioles go back to an American League ballpark in Toronto.

Paredes is out of the lineup Saturday, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.

Paredes has played exactly every other game for the Orioles over the past 10 days and he is coming off a three-hit day Friday. Chris Davis will start at DH Saturday with Steve Pearce playing first base.

Paredes is back in the lineup Wednesday against Boston and will bat second as the DH.

Paredes sat out against lefty Eduardo Rodriguez on Tuesday, but will be back in the order Wednesday against right-hander Rick Porcello. All six of Paredes' home runs this season have come off of right-handers and he is 4-for-7 with a home run against Porcello for his career.

Paredes is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.

With the Orioles facing left-handed Eduardo Rodriguez, it's no surprise to see Paredes out of the lineup. Paredes had a pair of hits in Sunday's win over the Indians, but he still has just four hits and a whopping 18 strikeouts over 37 at-bats in his last 10 games. His fast start increasingly appears to have been a fluke, and he may soon lose more at-bats, or possibly even be demoted to Triple-A Norfolk.

Paredes is out of Baltimore's lineup for Saturday's game against the Indians, Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Paredes is likely getting another day off that will also be slightly convenient for Baltimore, as it will be able to play Matt Wieters at DH and ease him back into the starting catcher role. Paredes remains a major regression concern, but he could still be a decent option at DH going forward, or in the infield if the Orioles eventually play him there more.

Paredes is back in the lineup Friday against the Indians, Eddie Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Paredes was held out Thursday, but he's back in the lineup Friday serving as the DH as Chris Davis slides back over to first base.

Paredes is not in Thursday's lineup, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.

Chris Davis will get the start at DH Thursday as Paredes has come crashing back to earth. He has just one hit in his last six games. It was a fun run while it lasted, and while his batting average still sits at .305, he is trending in the wrong direction and should start to see less consistent playing time.
