Per ESPN Stats & Info, Mancini is one of two Orioles — the other being Jonathan Schoop — in the last 50 years to homer for his first major league hit. Mancini flied out to right field in his first at-bat in the third inning.

Mancini, 24, is considered to be the Orioles’ fifth-best prospect by MLB¬†Pipeline. Spending most of the season with Triple-A Norfolk, he hit .280/.349/.427 with 13 home runs and 54 RBI in 536 plate appearances.
