This has been a brutal Wednesday in the Orioles minor leagues. Earlier, I posted the info on Trent Mummey leaving the Single-A Frederick game and Jesse Beal’s surgery.
Now comes word that Billy Rowell has been placed on the seven-day disabled list at Double-A Bowie with a left ankle injury and Joe Mahoney, the Orioles’ 2010 minor league Player of the Year is probably headed there, too.
Mahoney is still having discomfort because of a quad injury that earlier had him sidelined from April 10-25. He returned to the Baysox lineup but now is going to have an MRI later today on the quad. Mahoney was batting .235 with one homer and RBI in 10 games for Bowie, but was 0-for-11 the last three games and probably playing with some pain.
It doesn’t appear that Rowell, who was batting .231 over 14 games, will be out too long.
Update: Mahoney was officially put on the Baysox DL this afternoon. He is eligible to return on May 11. Rowell’s DL stint was back dated to May 2 and he can come off the DL on May 9. The two spots on the Baysox roster were taken by Kyle Hudson and Adam Donachie.
