2020 Fantasy Outlook
Mullins drew the start in center field on Opening Day and appeared to have a handle on the starting job, but after opening the year 6-for-64 with four RBI and 14 strikeouts over the first 22 contests, he was demoted to Triple-A Norfolk where he continued to struggle. The 25-year-old slashed .205/.272/.306 with a 46 wRC+, and a low 5.4 BB% negating a 16.7 K% over 66 games. Ultimately, the O's demoted Mullins again, this time to Double-A Bowie in mid-July. He finally saw his bat come to life while with the Baysox, but this certainly isn't how Mullins saw the 2019 campaign playing out. Even so, he'll likely have a shot to redeem himself during spring training and could wind up once again making Baltimore's Opening Day roster. Whether he'll be able to earn regular work remains to be seen, but it should be considered a long shot, especially after Austin Hays showed promise near the end of the 2019 season. Read Past Outlooks

Demoted to minor-league camp
OFBaltimore Orioles  AAA
March 21, 2020
The Orioles optioned Mullins to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Mullins broke camp last spring as the Orioles' Opening Day center fielder, but he quickly squandered most of his goodwill. After a 6-for-64 start to the campaign, he was demoted to the minors, spending most of the season there and finishing with a middling .233/.302/.347 between stops at Norfolk and Double-A Bowie. The 25-year-old may need a bounce-back season in the minors in order to maintain his spot on the 40-man roster heading into next winter.

MLB Barometer: Risers & Fallers
June 3, 2019
With two months in the books, Erik Halterman looks at players who have most exceeded and most fallen short of their draft-day expectations, including Joey Gallo.
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Mullins made his big-league debut and took over the starting job in center field from Adam Jones in early August, starting hot with a .317/.386/.566 slash line through the end of the month. Things changed quickly as the young outfielder began to struggle in September and finished the season in a 2-for-33 slump. He has kept relatively low strikeout (15.2%) and walk rates (7.2%) through his time in the minors, and trended similarly during his seven weeks in the majors. The 24-year-old has shown modest power but was hurt in 2018 with a mere 12.1% line-drive rate, which ranked third-worst in the majors among players with at least 100 PA. Mullins has a chance to post a 15-15 season with regular work, which should be easy to find on an Orioles roster that is really lacking in big-league caliber outfielders. He finished last season as Baltimore's leadoff hitter and should reprise that role this year.
