Baltimore Orioles Roster Report 2009-04-27


Baltimore Orioles Roster Report 2009-04-27
The Orioles have decisions to make with 3B Melvin Mora's impending return to the active roster Friday. Does manager Dave Trembley end up with 12 or 13 pitchers? The Orioles could demote LF Lou Montanez or a long reliever, such as RHP Brian Bass, or try to pass LF Felix Pie through waivers.

PLAYER NEWS:

--2B Brian Roberts homered onto the right-field flag court for the second time in three games Sunday. The Orioles leadoff man, who went 4-for-5 Sunday, is more of a doubles-machine, having belted 51 two-baggers in 2008, but he has averaged 12 home runs in the past four years.

--RHP Danys Baez was brilliant in three innings of relief, striking out three and allowing no walks or hits on 30 pitches. Baez, who earned his first win of the year, will remain a middle reliever for the time being, but any more stretches like Sunday might tempt manager Dave Trembley to give the veteran a spot start.

MEDICAL WATCH:

OF/INF Ryan Freel (head) went on the 15-day disabled list April 21 after being hit in the head by a pickoff throw the previous day.

RHP Alfredo Simon (sore right elbow) went on the 15-day disabled list April 15. He will have season-ending Tommy John surgery in late April.

3B Melvin Mora (left hamstring strain) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 13.

LHP Rich Hill (left elbow soreness) went on the 15-day disabled list March 29. He began a rehab assignment with Class A Frederick on April 24.
