Gentry (finger) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Gentry is still recovering from a fractured finger he suffered at the beginning of the month, so while he can't play defense or swing a bat, he'll be available as a pinch runner down the stretch. The 33-year-old collected five steals in 117 plate appearances this season.

Manager Buck Showalter said Gentry (finger) will be activated from the 10-day disabled list after being cleared to pinch-run by a specialist, Eduardo A. Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gentry fractured his finger at the beginning of the month, but it appears the injury won't keep him sidelined for the rest of the season. While he still can't play defense or swing a bat, the 33-year-old will be available as a pinch runner down the stretch if needed. He's compiled five steals in 117 plate appearances this season.

Gentry, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list Saturday with a fractured finger, will visit a hand specialist Sunday for further clarification on the severity of his injury, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

It will likely be at least multiple weeks before Gentry is cleared to swing a bat again, but the Orioles could choose to activate him when eligible Sept. 12 if doctors determine the injury isn't anything that would prevent him from serving as a pinch runner. Since the Orioles have a wealth of bench options on hand with rosters expanding Friday, the team wouldn't have any disincentive to activate Gentry, despite the significant restrictions he would likely face.

Gentry was placed on the 10-day DL on Saturday with a fractured finger.

EDGE Analysis

This essentially spells the end of Gentry's season. He finishes the year with a .257/.333/.386 slash line, two home runs and five steals in 117 plate appearances. The 33-year-old outfielder is a free agent this winter.

Gentry (finger) will see a hand specialist on Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

He suffered what was labeled as a finger laceration in Friday's game, and it sounds like his season is in jeopardy. Gentry had been occupying a minor depth role for the O's, so his fantasy value is minimal.

Gentry left Friday's game against the Blue Jays in the fourth inning with a middle finger laceration.

EDGE Analysis

Gentry, who was only in the game because Adam Jones was ejected in the first inning, was replaced in center field by Joey Rickard. With expanded rosters, the Orioles can afford to give Gentry a few days to let the cut heal up. Consider him day-to-day.

Gentry is 11-for-30 (.367) with a .906 OPS over 15 games since being recalled on July 30.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran utility man has done a nice job during his third round of MLB action this season. That said, Gentry has started only seven of the 24 games since July 30, making him unworthy of a fantasy roster spot on a consistent basis. However, until he cools down, the 33-year-old is a good dart to throw in daily formats when he's in the lineup.

The Orioles selected Gentry's contract from Triple-A Norfolk and inserted him into the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports. Gentry will bat ninth and man right field.

EDGE Analysis

Gentry will assume the 40-man and active roster spot of Hyun Soo Kim, who was packaged to the Phillies in the Jeremy Hellickson trade Friday. The Orioles view Gentry strictly as a depth option who can back up every outfield spot, but he'll gain entry into the starting nine Sunday with Mark Trumbo nursing a stiff back.

Gentry cleared waivers and was assigned outright to Triple-A Norfolk on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

A spot was needed for the returning Chris Davis (oblique), and Gentry was the roster casualty. It makes sense as Gentry is mostly limited to the outfield corners, defensively, and he's hit just .175/.273/.263 in 48 games this season. The 33-year-old will look to get on track with Norfolk and earn his way back onto the 40-man before the end of the season.

Gentry is starting in right field and hitting ninth Saturday against Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

The 33-year-old will make his fifth start since returning to the big-league club on June 20 (17 games). With a brutal .185 batting average through 46 contests this season, Gentry is no more than a punt play Saturday in daily leagues.
