    Nunez went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in a 16-4 loss against the Rays on Friday.

    Impact

    It was a forgettable night for the Orioles, but Nunez was the lone bright spot. He accounted for two of Baltimore's five hits, and he drove in half of their runs. Nunez already has 21 homers this season, which is an incredible number considering he came into the season with nine long balls in 266 major league at-bats during his entire career. Nunez is batting .243 with 39 extra-base hits, 51 RBI and 44 runs in 305 at-bats this season.

    Nunez went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in an 8-1 victory over the Blue Jays on Saturday.

    Impact

    Nunez staked the Orioles with a 2-0 lead with his fourth-inning blast off Clayton Richard. The 25-year-old has homered four times in his last six games and has a .239/.305/.495 slash line over 297 at-bats.

    Nunez went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run Wednesday against the Rays.

    Impact

    Nunez took Jose Alvarado deep in the ninth inning to record his 19th home run of the season. After failing to record a home run from June 8 to June 28, Nunez has three home runs in three starts since June 29. While his .241 batting average and .304 on-base percentage are poor, Nunez has proven capable of providing streaky power production, posting a .493 slugging percentage across 316 plate appearances for the campaign.

    Nunez isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rays, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

    Impact

    Nunez will head to the bench for the second time in three days. Trey Mancini is set to slot in as the designated hitter and bat third in Nunez's absence.

    Nunez is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Indians, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

    Impact

    The Orioles will give Dwight Smith a day out of the outfield and deploy him as their designated hitter in the series finale, leaving no room in the lineup for Nunez. Despite resting Sunday, Nunez was still able to make his mark on the series with a pair of home runs and four RBI in Saturday's 13-0 win. The two long balls ended a 15-game home-run drought for the 25-year-old.
