Pearce went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Monday's win over the Astros.

Pearce got just one start over the weekend, but he made it count by knocking the game winning home run. His average is still reeling after hitting .196 in April and .178 in May, but Pearce does have three home runs in his last eight starts.

Pearce is out of the lineup Saturday.

With the O's in an NL park, the options for deploying Pearce are limited. In order to get Jimmy Paredes in the lineup he will get the start at second base leaving Everth Cabrera and Pearce out of the mix.

Pearce pinch hit and remained in the game at second base Friday against Miami, going 0-for-2 with a run.

Pearce has now logged 10 games at second base and should have eligibility in most leagues at second base and middle infield spots. That is good for Pearce, but his bad start to the season (.194/.269/.333) through Friday is not benefiting anyone. With the Orioles visiting an NL park, Pearce may not be in the lineup Saturday or Sunday either.

Pearce hit a first-inning grand slam and drew a walk in four plate appearances Thursday against Seattle.

His average is still lingering under the Mendoza line, but Pearce has been picking it up lately, having gone 5-for-17 with two homers and six RBI in the last five games. We'll need to see him keep it up, but he did manage to hit .293 last year somehow, and in leagues where he becomes eligible at second base, his power certainly plays.

Pearce went 2-for-3 Saturday with a solo shot, his third home run of the season.

Jimmy Paredes has stolen away his DH job, but Pearce is still finding semi-regular at-bats at second base thanks to a rash of middle infield injuries the O's have endured. He's still slashing just .195/.276/.325 on the season, however, and will need to pick up his pace to become worth rostering in most formats.

Pearce is not in Baltimore's lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jays, according to MASN Sports.

Pearce went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in Tuesday's loss and he will sit for the fifth time in Baltimore's last nine games. Even with Ryan Flaherty out, Pearce does not have the second base job secure. Pearce's slow start can be attributed to his .232 BABIP on the season.

Pearce started Tuesday at second base and went 0-for-3 with a strikeout after Ryan Flaherty was placed on the DL earlier in the day.

Pearce made his seventh appearance at second base and seems like a lock to hit the 10-game requirement before Flaherty can return to gain second base eligibility in many leagues. Unfortunately for Pearce owners, he has not been able to do much at the plate this season, hitting .196 in April and .150 in May. If Pearce can manage anything close to his numbers last year, he could turn into a solid 2B/MI option in fantasy leagues.

Pearce went 1-for-4 in the Orioles' win over Toronto on Monday night, while he was moved to second base after Ryan Flaherty left the game with an injury.

The appearance at second base was the sixth of the season for Pearce, who has already added eligibility at the keystone to his profile in leagues that require five or fewer games at a position during the current season. Unfortunately, his slow start in April has carried over to May, as Pearce is hitting just .183/.272/.282 with two homers and nine RBI through 22 games.

Pearce is out of the lineup Sunday against the Yankees, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Manager Buck Showalter elected to squeeze an extra left-handed bat into his lineup with righty Michael Pineda on the hill for the Yankees, as Ryan Flaherty will displace Pearce at second base. The unexpected reps at second base have given Pearce increased versatility for fantasy owners, but his inability to get much going at the plate this season has limited his overall impact.

Pearce is out of the lineup Friday, MLB.com's Brittany Ghiroli reports.

Ryan Flaherty was activated from the DL Friday and will take over the second base duties, presumably on most nights. Pearce has not done enough with his bat thus far to warrant playing time on a regular basis, and he will could start the majority of games on the bench going forward.
