The O's could also be joined by outfielder Joey Rickard, who played for Class-A Delmarva on Monday night and will get in at least one more game. Rickard, who has been dealing with a finger injury, could join the Major League club, though finding a spot will be interesting. He has a Minor League option remaining but manager Buck Showalter would prefer to add Rickard to bolster the bench, meaning the Orioles could get creative in finding room elsewhere.
