Found May 29, 2012 on Oriole Post:
It looks like after the loss on Monday night, the Orioles decided to make some moves. As I thought, the Orioles would demote Tommy Hunter today; however, they also sent Xavier Avery back to Triple-A after scuffling pretty badly as of late. Endy Chavez is back from the disabled list. Although Avery did well his first week up in Baltimore and his sample size doesn't indicate his ability; however, Chavez has a track record and Avery does not. At least in Norfolk, Avery will get to play everyday and not compete with Chavez for playing time in Baltimore. And yes, the Orioles did bring up another arm for the bullpen... Orioles reinstate OF Endy Chavez from Disabled List and select contract of RHP Miguel Gonzalez Option RHP Tommy Hunter and OF Xavier Avery to Triple-A Norfolk The Orioles today announced that they have reinstated OF ENDY CHAVEZ from the disabled list, selected the contract of RHP MIGUEL GONZALEZ and optioned RHP TOMMY HUNTER and OF XAVIER AVERY to Triple-A Norf...

  • Well, I'm going to miss Avery and his speed. You all really don't give a person a chance. I think he did as good as a lot of the veterans on the team. To be a rookie he was good. And after looking at the game I couldn't tell the difference between the veterans and the rookie. I'm just saying. In addition, Betemit didn't do any better than Avery. I don't know what some of you critics are looking for but i'm sure you couldn't do any better. I'm just saying....
  • I know that's right Lucy Lucy, give the rookie an applaud.

Berrys call-up the highlight of Adam Jones week

The two are so close that Jones is the godfather...
