Pair to go to Bowie

Orioles outfielder Lou Montanez will report to Double-A Bowie and is expected to play in Wednesday night’s game, with reliever Jim Johnson joining him on Thursday.

Montanez played in four Gulf Coast League games, going 3-for-15 (.200) with an RBI and has been on the 15-day disabled list since June 26 with a left oblique strain suffering during pregame batting practice.

Johnson appeared in four GCL games, pitching four innings and allowing three earned runs on five hits -including a homer – with a walk and a five strikeouts. All three of those runs came in one outing, giving him a 6.75 ERA over that stretch.

Johnson (right elbow inflammation) has been on the 60-day DL since May 28.
