Orioles’ Trey Mancini avoids major injury after HBP on elbow

The Baltimore Orioles managed to avoid serious injury to one of their primary trade chips on Wednesday despite a big scare.

Slugging outfielder Trey Mancini was hit on the elbow with a pitch and left Wednesday’s game against the Oakland Athletics. However, the injury is being called a contusion, which means Mancini avoided structural damage.

The Orioles have had a terrible season and don’t have a lot of pieces to use to rebuild, but Mancini is certainly one of them. He’s hitting .304 this season with 16 home runs, and has hit 24 home runs in each of the last two seasons. A serious injury to him would’ve certainly hurt his trade value.
