The Baltimore Orioles activated reliever Zach Britton, who has been out all season rehabbing the Achilles tendon he ruptured in December.
I’m anxious to get back into a big league game, Britton said. I accomplished everything I needed to on the rehab assignment.
In five minor league appearances over the Womens Stephen Anderson Jersey past couple weeks, the veteran lefty posted a 1.69 http://www.footballbengalsofficialshop.com/Nike-Logan-Woodside-Jersey.html ERA, striking out six and walking none over 5.1 innings. His past two outings came on back-to-back days.
I’m here to pitch and do well, Britton said prior to Baltimore’s series opener against the Boston Red Sox. That’s my goal now. We’ll see how it goes from here. I’m just looking forward to playing. Wherever I’m at by the end of the year I’m at.
To make room for Britton on the active roster, the Orioles placed right-handed reliever Pedro Araujo on the 10-day disabled list with a right elbow strain and transferred outfielder Colby Rasmus (hip flexor) to the 60-day DL.
Hahn also says outfielder Leury Garcia (sprained left http://www.texansofficialauthentic.com/TEXANS-STEPHEN-ANDERSON-JERSEY knee) is just about ready to go on a rehab assignment, though the White Sox don’t have a start date.
JS: It’s going good. It’s a work in progress. I’ve [been] having fun with it, getting some good reviews from the way hitters react to it. So we’ll see how it goes over time.
More and more, it’s becoming rare for starters to work deep into games, especially younger guys. It makes me wonder how we will find those workhorses in the future if pitchers are never given much of a chance to prove they can work deep.
JS: For me, if you look at the past six to eight years, Logan Woodside Womens Jersey there aren’t too many teams that make the playoffs without having over 900 innings from their starting staff. It’s few and far between. At the end of the day, it’s a long season and you need to save that bullpen. You are always going to be looking for guys that can help you do that.
What did you have to show Joe Maddon when you were in Tampa Bay that convinced him to allow you to complete so many games? For a while there, you were kind of like a 21st century version of Walter Johnson.
