How to Watch Orioles Games Without Cable in 2022

Watch Orioles Games Online

Getty Cedric Mullins will look to build off last year's massive breakout in 2022.

The Baltimore Orioles are likely headed for another last-place finish inside a stacked AL East division, but with Adley Rutschman, Grayson Rodriguez and several other members of the league’s No. 1 farm system ready to debut in 2022, the O’s should at the very least provide some entertainment value.

In 2022, most Orioles games will be locally televised on MASN, while others may be nationally televised on MLB Network (those ones will also be on MASN), ESPN, ESPN2, Fox or Fox Sports 1.

If you don’t have cable, here are some different ways you can watch every Orioles game live online in 2022, including options for both in-market and out-of-market viewers:

The MLB.TV channel costs either $24.99 per month to watch every out-of-market game (“All Team Pass”) or $109.99 for the year to just watch out-of-market Orioles games (“Single Team Pass”), but either option comes with a free seven-day trial:

In addition to one live MLB game every day, ESPN+ also has dozens of other live sports, every 30-for-30 documentary and additional original content (both video and written) all for $6.99 per month.

Or, if you also want Disney+ and Hulu, you can get all three for $13.99 per month. Separately, the three streaming services would cost a total $20.97 per month, so you’re saving about 33 percent:

Orioles 2022 Season Preview

The Baltimore Orioles remain in rebuild mode amid a stacked American League East Division. The New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Toronto Blue Jays, and Tampa Bay Rays all look like 85-game winners or better.

Baltimore may debut some of its heralded prospects in 2022 according to The Athletic’s Dan Connolly. That includes Adley Rutschman, whom Connolly anticipates will play catcher for the Orioles in late April or May after coming back from a tricep injury. Grayson Rodriguez, D.J. Hall, Yusniel Diaz, Kyle Stowers, and Kyle Brandish could also debut this season, Connolly wrote. Rutschman ranks second and Rodriguez ranks sixth among MLB.com’s top 100 prospects.

The Orioles will also celebrate the 30th anniversary of Camden Yards, which received a change to the left field wall. Orioles hitters and visiting batters alike could face challenges with the wall “moved back approximately 26 feet and raised to about 13 feet”, Connolly wrote.
