Orioles: Luke unhappy on DL
Luke Scott wasn't too pleased with the Orioles' decision to place him on the disabled list today to make room for new starting pitcher Rich Hill. Here's Dan Connolly's story from Kansas City.
I admire Luke for wanting to come back soon and play through the residual soreness, but I think the club made the right decision. If you've been reading this blog, you know I predicted it would probably come to this. Scott might be able to play against the Yankees, but he also might end up at something less than 100 percent for well beyond the nine more games he's going to miss on the DL.
The decision also is an obvious sign that Andy MacPhail isn't quite ready to give up on Adam Eaton and call up on of the club's promising minor league pitchers.
