O’s to recall Hunter for Wednesday start at Twins
The Baltimore Orioles plan to recall right-hander Tommy Hunter
in time to start Wednesday night against Minnesota.
Hunter is 3-4 with a 6.11 ERA this season. He was optioned to
Triple-A Norfolk on July 1 when the Orioles added slugger Jim Thome
in a trade with the Phillies. He will make his 14th start of the
season and has had the most trouble on the road, where he is 0-3
with an 8.07 ERA in six starts.
The Orioles also placed infielder Robert Andino on the 15-day
disabled list with a strained left shoulder, moved infielder Nick
Johnson to the 60-day disabled list with a sprained right wrist,
purchased the contract of right-hander Brad Bergesen and optioned
right-hander Miguel Socolovich to Norfolk.
