Os/Twins finale and tidbits

The Orioles will look to take three of four games this afternoon in the series finale against the Twins.

*The big pregame news was that of Jim Johnson, who was placed on the disabled list in Norfolk late last night and has been diagnosed with a strained ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. He will see Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion sometime this week, but the hope is he will be able to avoid surgery.
*With the Orioles slumping bats and outfielder Corey Patterson tearing up Triple-A, manager Dave Trembley hinted that there could be further roster movement for Tuesday’s homestand. Could Lou Montanez’s days be numbered? We’ll see.
*Lastly it’s Mother’s Day, so call your mom, hug your wife. Spread the love. The Orioles, like every Major League Baseball team, will hit with pink bats today to help raise breast cancer awareness. Slumping Nolan Reimold joked if he gets a hit he’s going to hit with the pink bat again Tuesday. I’ll have a full story on MLB’s efforts up post game.
