Since we have so much good news coming our way with the Orioles these days, add this to the latest - shortstop Mychal Givens has been placed on Delmarva’s disabled list.
The 20-year-old Givens, the O’s second-round draft pick out of Plant High in Tampa, Florida, suffered a sprained left thumb sliding into a base vs. Greensboro on Tuesday night. He was wearing a soft cast on the hand yesterday.
Givens is expected to be out for at least two weeks, maybe longer. He’ll be examined further at a later date.
In seven games with the Shorebirds, Givens was hitting .222-0-4, with four hits over 18 at bats, all singles. He had walked five times and fanned four times since joining the Shorebirds on May 25 from extended spring training.
Infielder Gary Helmick was added off Aberdeen’s roster to take Givens spot on the Delmarva roster.
