Paredes will draw his third straight start at third base Thursday against the Yankees, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

With Manny Machado out for the season and Chris Davis under suspension, Paredes appears to have emerged as manager Buck Showalter's preferred option at the hot corner. He's slashed an excellent .333/.360/.542 over his 15 games with the Orioles thus far, putting him in strong position to claim a utility role on the postseason roster.

Paredes went 2-for-4 with a double and a stolen base in Saturday's loss to the Yankees.

Paredes saw action in a few games with the Royals earlier this season, but he may have walked into an opportunity for playing time following a trade to the Orioles. After entering Friday's game to play third base for the injured Steve Pearce, Paredes started at the hot corner Saturday with Chris Davis moving to first base in each instance. Pearce remains day-to-day, but Paredes appears to have moved ahead of Ryan Flaherty on the depth chart.

Paredes was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday.

Paredes didn't exactly swing his way to a promotion, as he hit just .258/.286/.394 in 32 games after joining Norfolk, but he provides the team with some added depth and versatility. Paredes played five different positions in the minors this season -- second, third, short, left and right -- and will likely remain in a utility role over the remainder of the regular season.

The 25-year-old continues to bounce back and forth between the Royals and the minor leagues whenever they need an extra man on the bench. In nine games with the Royals he has gone 2-for-10 (.200) while swiping a pair of bases and scoring three runs.

Paredes was hitting .327/.357/.486 with three home runs, 17 RBI, and six stolen bases in 26 games this season at the Triple-A level. He'll see some action at third base but isn't a great fantasy bet in mixed leagues. The 25-year-old owns a .583 OPS in 122 games in the bigs.
