Baltimore Orioles Roster Report 2009-04-28


Baltimore Orioles Roster Report 2009-04-28
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:

--3B Melvin Mora will report to Class AAA Norfolk on Tuesday for a brief rehab stint. Mora, on the disabled list with a hamstring injury, will play six innings for the Tides and return Friday when the Orioles open a three-game series in Toronto.

--RHP Brian Bass is unlikely to be demoted Friday when Melvin Mora returns from an injury. Bass is out of options. Also, Bass has put together 7 2/3 consecutive scoreless innings.

--LHP Rich Hill will throw 50-to-60 pitches at Class AAA Norfolk on Wednesday night. He'll need to reach 90 pitches in an outing before the Orioles activate him from the disabled list.

--OF/INF Ryan Freel began his rehab assignment Monday night at Class A Delmarva.

MEDICAL WATCH:

3B Melvin Mora (left hamstring strain) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 13. He will begin a rehab assignment with Class AAA Norfolk on April 28.

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.
