Found June 17, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Baltimore Orioles have scratched Jason Hammel from tonight's scheduled start against the Detroit Tigers due to illness, according to Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports. Right-hander Jake Arrieta will replace Hammel on the mound tonight. At this point, Baltimore is pushing Hammel back for at least one day as he recovers from a stomach virus that has swept through his home. If Hammel is also unable to start on Tuesday, the Orioles could recall Zach Britton from Triple-A and give him the ball. They could also swingman T.J. McFarland. After his impressive first year with the O's, Hammel has struggled this season. The 30-year-old has been hit hard to the tune of a 5.24 ERA and 1.488 WHIP over 14 starts spanning 80 2/3 innings. It doesn't sound like he'll be required to miss more than one start as a result of the illness. Arrieta started the season in the Orioles rotation, but he was demoted to Triple-A after making only a handful of starts. Over 19 innings, the 27-year-old has allowed 14 runs on 15 hits and 16 walks while striking out 20. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

Orioles improve to 10 games over 500

Weekend Series Recap: Orioles “Have Their Number”

If you thought about it, what is the most cliched saying in all of sports? I’d argue that a team or a person “having someone’s number” is probably in the top five.

The Red Sox...
