. The formidable trio of Canadia

  • 08 Apr
    NEW YORK -- With star outfielder Adam Jones nursing a tender hamstring, the Baltimore Orioles selected the contract of Julio Borbon from Double-A Bowie and optioned pitcher Mike Wright to Triple-A Norfolk.Borbon was inserted in the starting lineup for Baltimore, batting ninth against hard-throwing New York Yankees rookie Chad Green.We had some other center field options, manager Buck Showalter said. Borbon is our best option at this point.Jones left Fridays game in the second inning with a left hamstring strain. He departed the previous nights game at Washington in the ninth inning with hamstring cramps and aggravated the injury hustling down the first base line on a soft grounder to third.I got a feeling that if he hadnt had that first swinging bunt, it might not have been a problem, Showalter indicated. Hes not going to trot to first base as much as I talked to him about it before the game.Although Jones was unable to talk his way into Saturdays lineup, Showalter speculated that he might be available to pinch-hit.The 30-year old Borbon was 2 for 9 in five games with the Orioles earlier this season, but was designated for assignment on July 26. To create room for Borbon on the 40-man roster, pitcher Logan Ondrusek was designated for assignment on Friday. Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys . 10 Texas A&Ms offence dominated as usual against SMU.
