It looks like Wei-Yin Chen will be on the disabled list. I figured that would happen, it did not look good for Chen when he was on the mound Sunday. He was diagnosed with an oblique strain. Considering that Chen is perhaps the most consistent starter on the team, it remains to be seen what will happen with the Orioles. From the Baltimore Orioles: Orioles place LHP Wei-Yin Chen on 15-day disabled list RHP Alex Burnett and INF Yamaico Navarro recalled from Norfolk The Orioles today announced that they have placed LHP WEI-YIN CHEN on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 13, with a right oblique strain. The club has also recalled RHP ALEX BURNETT and INF YAMAICO NAVARRO from Triple-A Norfolk. Chen was injured during his Sunday start at Minnesota in which he picked up his third win of the year with five scoreless innings. Chen is 3-3 with a 3.04 ERA (47.1IP,16ER) in eight starts for the Orioles. Chen led the Orioles with 32 starts in 2012. Burnett, 25, joins the Orioles for the third time this year (also April 22-24 and May 9-10). He appeared in one game, allowing one hit and striking out one in a scoreless inning May 9 against Kansas City. In seven games with Triple-A Norfolk, Burnett was 1-0 with a 1.86 ERA (9.2IP, 2ER) and eight strikeouts. Navarro, 25, returns for a second stint with the Orioles as he was with the club April 5-6 but did not see game action. In 34 games with Norfolk, Navarro was batting .303 (37-122) with two homers and 13 RBI. He scored 28 runs in those 34 games and posted a .395 on-base percentage for the Tides. Also, Ken Rosenthal tweeted this a bit ago. The Orioles will bring up a familiar name to a lot of fans. Yes, Jair Jurrjens will probably be promoted to the Orioles and will start against the Tampa Bay Rays this Saturday. Sources: Jurrjens will make #Orioles debut Saturday against #Rays. 3.14 ERA in 8 starts at AAA, 36 Ks, 15 BBs, 2 HRs allowed in 51 2/3 IP. I wrote about him this winter. Again, if Jair Jurrjens is healthy and shows any of the ability he had in Atlanta, then the Orioles will be very well off. However, I am still a bit concerned about his numbers during the 2012 season, but who knows if he suffered through injuries, or whatever else. His numbers in Norfolk were okay but for everyone’s sake, let’s hope gambling on him will work wonders. With the starting rotation struggling at points so far this season, maybe he can deliver a solid start. We hope. The Orioles face the San Diego Padres for a two-game set starting tonight. Chris Tillman is on the hill on tonight, and Freddy Garcia will go on Wednesday.
