Orioles place Pearce on DL, activate Gonzalez

*The Orioles have placed outfielder Steve Pearce on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to yesterday, and reinstated Miguel Gonzalez from the paternity leave list. The move allows them to keep first baseman Travis Ishikawa, who took Gonzalez’s roster spot last week.

*Nolan Reimold is playing in left field tonight for Double-A Bowie as he continues his rehab assignment. He could be activated when the team comes off their road trip.

I’d like to see this the rest of the year as soon as Chen is back:

1. Hammel
2. Tillman
3. Chen
4. Gonzalez
5. Britton

Long Relief: TJ McFarland & S Johnson ( when back)
Emergency Long Relief: Gausman

6th Hunter – Patton
7th Matusz – Strop
8th O’Day
9th Johnson

Gausman should only be called up for emergency starts or long relief, otherwise he should start at AAA. If Gausman dominates at AAA and someone in rotation is struggling he should take their place.
