Turns out Val Majewski never was with the club. It was just a silly dream. And David Newhan isn't really injured. He was in the shower the entire time.
Any "Dallas" fans out there? If not, I really wish I had opened with something else.
Manager Sam Perlozzo described Luis Terrero as someone who can play all three outfield positions, provide a right-handed bat and run and throw a little. "He's kind of a whole-package guy," Perlozzo said.
Perlozzo explained Majewski's one-day stay as the Orioles needing a "quick fix" when Newhan fractured his fibula and Luis Matos was unavailable because of a sore shoulder. Majewski was on the 40-man roster. A space couldn't be cleared for Terrero until the club knew that Tim Byrdak's sore elbow was bad enough to put him on the disabled list - and warrant a transfer to the 60-day DL earlier today.
The Orioles also didn't want Majewski sitting for long stretches. He needs to play. And he'll get that opportunity at Triple-A Ottawa.
Trust me, as cold as it is there, he won't be sitting much. Pacing is more like it.
Matos had his shoulder examined today and we're still waiting to find out the results. Maybe I'll have something after the game.
