Orioles may gut it out with Izturis
If the club wasn't already limping into New York with Adam Jones (hamstring) and Lou Montanez (thumb) banged up, there might be more talk of placing Cesar Izturis on the disabled list with the groin injury he suffered over the weekend. The way it looks right now, he'll probably sit the next couple of days in New York and backup Robert Andino will play shortstop for much of the three-game series.
Groin injuries are troublesome, so the DL is not out of the question at some point. The Orioles also waited on Luke Scott's injured shoulder for a few days, but eventually decided to play it safe with him.
