Biographical Information[edit]

Outfielder Cedric Mullins was a switch-hitter for his first three major league seasons with the Baltimore Orioles, but had limited success after a brilliant major league debut on August 10, 2018, when he had three hits and a walk. The next player to debut by reaching base four times was Riley Greene, with the 2022 Detroit Tigers.

He decided to give up batting from the right side in 2021, and the change paid immediate dividends, as he had a great opening series against the Boston Red Sox. That was the start of a breakout season that saw him been named to the All-Star team for the first time. That season, he became the first player in Orioles history to have a 30-30 season. He finished the season at .291 in 159 games, with 37 doubles, 30 homers, 91 runs scored and 30 stolen bases. His OPS+ was 137 and he won a Silver Slugger Award for the first time.
