The Baltimore Orioles have struggled though another season in 2021, currently sitting in last place in the AL East with a 38-71 record. However, they do have some young talent, and things could be looking up for the future. Ryan Mountcastle represents some of that young talent in Baltimore.

Keeping that young talent healthy for the long term is key. So when Mountcastle experienced some concussion symptoms after a tag on the head by Rays Wander Franco, Baltimore placed him on the concussion injured list.

Mountcastle is expected to be out a week, as long as symptoms have subsided by then. The 24-year-old first basement has been a bright spot for the Orioles this season, hitting .264 with 19 home runs and 63 RBI.

Expect Baltimore to take a cautious approach with Mountcastle during a lost season, but when he does return he will be a huge boom to Baltimore's lineup.
