Orioles vs. Cardinals Game 3

Greetings from Camden Yards, where the Os are going for the sweep.

Miguel Gonzalez was in the clubhouse this morning talking about the move yesterday that has him now in Triple-A in place of Ubaldo Jimenez. Gonzalez said he understood why they had to make the move and is hoping to just make one start for Triple-A Norfolk.

Bud Norris, Wei-Yin Chen and Chris Tillman will start the three-game series against the Yankees that starts on Monday.

As for September call ups, manager Buck Showalter said he’s already thought about potentially who could help the club and doesn’t expect to have that many additions. Obviously they’d add a few pitchers: Joe Saunders and Ryan Webb seem to be locks, another catcher (Steve Clevenger) and outfielder Quintin Berry adds a serious speed threat. I’d imagine they’d add a few more pitchers and probably an extra infield option as well.

Speaking of Showalter, he was challenged to the ALS Ice Bucket challenge that’s circulating around by center fielder Adam Jones. You can watch that fun video on my Instagram page here.
