BALTIMORE -- The Orioles placed Darren O'Day on the 10-day disabled list prior to Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Royals, adding lefty Tanner Scott in his stead.
O'Day, who was diagnosed with a hyperextended right elbow, last pitched in Oakland last Friday and the move is retroactive to Sunday. The righty is 0-1 with a 3.77 ERA over 13 appearances this season.
Scott gives the O's a second lefty to go along with Richard Bleier and also some length. Baltimore starter Dylan Bundy did not record an out in Tuesday's loss, and the Orioles will need some help as they have a doubleheader looming on Saturday. This will be Scott's third stint with the Orioles this season.
The 23-year-old has appeared in three games, allowing three earned runs over 4 2/3 innings.
O's Honorary Bat Boy
Baltimore native Dr. John H. Fetting will be honored this Mother's Day as the Orioles' Honorary Bat Boy and Birdland Community Hero for his exceptional work in the fight against breast cancer.
Fetting, an associate professor of oncology at the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins Hospital, is an advocate for breast cancer prevention, research and fundraising. Through his work as a medical oncologist with the Johns Hopkins Breast Cancer Program, Fetting has been actively involved in clinical trials and patient care. The John Fetting Fund for Breast Cancer Prevention at Johns Hopkins, initiated by patient Leslie Ries, has raised $3.8 million since its inception. Along with proceeds derived from the pink cap auction, the Orioles will donate an additional $2,500 to the fund as part of Dr. Fetting's recognition as the Birdland Community Hero.
Major League Baseball will also do its part to help the fight against breast cancer. Once again, players will don pink licensed apparel, and Louisville Slugger will donate proceeds from the sale of their pink bats, which will be stamped with the MLB breast cancer awareness logo, to Susan G. Komen and Stand Up To Cancer. MLB will again donate its licensed uniform royalties through Mother's Day apparel to Susan G. Komen and Stand Up To Cancer.
