Mancini has been out since Monday after taking a pitch to the right hand but is good to go for the team’s series opener against the Rays. Even at nine games below .500, Baltimore is exceeding most expectations. Mancini has been a vital part of the team’s success, leading the team in both batting average and on-base percentage. Their lineup will receive a much-needed boost as they head home for the weekend.
In 58 games this season, Mancini has posted a .290 batting average, a .373 on-base percentage, and a .424 slugging rate. He will replace Ryan Mountcastle at first base while Mountcastle will head to DH for Friday.
