Orioles expand roster again
No surprise here, but the Orioles have added five more player to their already expanded September roster. Right-handed starter Chris Lambert, left-handed starter Chris Waters, reliever Bob McCrory, infielder Justin Turner and catcher Guillermo Rodriguez are joining the team in Boston.
To free up some room on the 40-man roster for the non-roster guys on that list, the Orioles have moved Brad Bergesen and Lou Montanez to the 60-day disabled list, which confirms that they will not play again this season. Also, Adam Jones has been placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive until Sept. 2.
The promotion of Lambert may mean the O's will stay with five starters after Brian Matusz and Chris Tillman are shut down in the next week or so. There had been talk that manager Dave Trembley would go with four starters and a bullpen committee for the times a fifth starter would be necessary.
