Orioles: Scott injury sounds ominous
All you had to do was see the look on Luke Scott's face -- and his arm in a sling -- after today's game to know that his shoulder injury is probably no small thing. He was clearly disheartened and talked about the importance of the power of prayer in the situation. You don't usually go there for a simple strain or sprain.
"I dove head-first back into the base and it kind of hyper-extended one of my rotator cuff muscles,'' he said. "Tomorrow I'll go in for an MRI and see what happens."
So, don't be surprised if he turns up on the disabled list before Tuesday night's series opener against the Tampa Bay Rays. If that happens, the Orioles will have to decide whether to replace him with a DH-type such as Oscar Salazar or call up hot-hitting outfield prospect Nolan Reimold.
