Orioles: Matusz shutdown official
President of baseball operations Andy MacPhail has told rookie starter Brian Matusz that he's done for the year, but Matusz will stay with the major league club for the remainder of the schedule.
Matusz wanted to continue, but he accepted the club's decision without complaint.
"It was never in the plan for me to be here this year,'' he said. "I'm really proud that I went out and didn't give them any choice but to bring me up. I really learned a lot and am proud of my progress."
"I told Andy it couldn't have worked out any better. I got to end on a good note and finished the year healthy. Now, I get to spend the last three weeks of the yaer watching like like David Price of the Rays and try to learn something."

Cesar Izturis SS
