He batted .291/.382/.479 with eight doubles, one triple, seven home runs and 36 RBI in 44 games with Norfolk. Nevin made his Major League debut with the Orioles in 2021, appearing in six games and going 4×14 with two doubles, a home run and three RBI.
Nevin has played in 521 Minor League games in his career, slashing .274/.352/.434 with 114 doubles, eight triples, 59 home runs and 281 RBI. Nevin was named a MiLB.com Organization All-Star in 2017 and was selected to the AFL All-Prospect Team in 2018.
A native of Poway, CA, Nevin was originally drafted by the Colorado Rockies in the Competitive Balance A round of the 2015 MLB Draft. His father, Phil, played for the Tigers from 1995-97 and is currently the manager of the Los Angeles Angels.
To make room for Nevin on the 40-man roster, lefthanded pitcher Zach Logue has been designated for assignment.
