Veteran right-hander Yovani Gallardo makes his second rehabilitation start on his way back from right shoulder tendinitis this afternoon in Norfolk, and Orioles manager Buck Showalter was noncommittal when asked if it would be Gallardo's final start before returning.
The Orioles will be without reliever Darren O'Day for at least 15 days after the team's setup man was placed on the disabled list prior to Friday's series opener against the New York Yankees. The Orioles recalled right-hander Mike Wright from Triple-A Norfolk to take O'Day's roster spot.
Manager Buck Showalter was trying to find the right word Wednesday afternoon to describe how his inconsistent hitters might be feeling after losing the first two games of the four-game home series against the first-place Boston Red Sox.
The Orioles' stalwart catcher Matt Wieters homered in the second inning, hit an RBI double off the wall in the deepest part of center field in the fourth inning, then hit his second double of the game with one out in the eighth inning as he provided most of the offense in Wednesday's bounceback game against the Seattle Mariners.
