Chris Jakubauskas and Troy Patton pitched tonight and packed their bags. They’re heading back to Triple-A Norfolk.
Ryan Adams and outfielder Nolan Reimold are expected to report to Camden Yards tomorrow, giving the Orioles 12 pitchers and a full bench.
It’s interesting that both players were in Norfolk’s lineup tonight instead of being late scratches. Reimold went 2-for-4 with his 22nd RBI, leaving his average at .237. He hit his sixth home run last night. Adams went 1-for-3 and is batting .303.
Reimold gives the Orioles another option in left field if Luke Scott plays first base. Adams could get some starts at second base, with Robert Andino returning to a utility role.
