The Orioles cant lose today, mostly because they dont play a game. In todays links, Miguel Tejada has a birthday, some Os prospects are struggling, and more. If you didnt get to watch yesterdays loss to the Twins, the Orioles seventh straight one-run loss, you might be better off not having done so, but if you still need to catch up on the not-so-lovely totals, heres my recap of the game.
New York Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury left Wednesday’s game against the Kansas City Royals because of a concussion and a sprained neck. Ellsbury banged his head into the center-field wall while catching Alcides Escobar’s fly ball on Luis Severino’s opening pitch. He stayed in for the rest of the inning before being removed. Etc. Outfielder Michael Bourn was released from a minor league contract by the Baltimore Orioles. He batted .220 in 11 games with triple-A Norfolk. ... Right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall was scratched from the Cleveland Indians’ lineup and is being evaluated for a possible head injury. Chisenhall was tagged out sliding headfirst at the plate Sunday against Houston.
I’m really, really worried about your team. The rankings (records through Wednesday’s games): 1. Houston Astros (31-16; Previous: 3): Three years since Sports Illustrated said they’d win in ’17, and now everything feels a little stale. 2. Washington Nationals
