Felix Pie went 0-for-4 today in his first injury rehab game with the Gulf Coast League Orioles. He was removed for a pinch-hitter - hopefully because he was only slated to receive four at-bats.
Update: I received a text message from a team official stating that Pie is fine and received the desired amount of at-bats.
Pie grounded to second, third and short, and reached on an error. He left for a pinch-hitter with two outs and a runner on second base in the bottom of the ninth inning.
First baseman Tyler Townsend, recovering from his latest hamstring injury, went 1-for-3 with a double and RBI.
Check out Steve Melewski’s latest blog entry, which has an update on Townsend and quotes from the 2009 third-round pick.
The GCL Orioles lost to the Twins, 8-4.
No word on whether manager Ramon Sambo is on the hot seat.
