There were a lot of people, including myself, who were wondering where Kam Mickolio was last night, when manager Dave Trembley had to send in Dennie Sarfate in a close middle-inning situation in the sixth inning.
So I checked with our Orioles beat reporter, Jeff Zrebiec, who told me that Mickolio has not been available for a couple of days because he has a tired arm. Guess he got pushed a little hard when he came on so strong after his most recent call up.
Zrebiec also said that Chris Ray has complained of some late-season discomfort in his arm, but he went out there last night and got shelled. I'm not sure what to make of his situation right now. He looked pretty good for awhile, but when he's bad, he can get lit up like a Christmas tree, something the Yankees confirmed in the seventh inning last night.
