Orioles Notebook

As reported in the Washington Post:

Lopez May Miss a Few More Games
By Jorge Arangure Jr.Washington Post Staff WriterTuesday, May 2, 2006; Page E10
BALTIMORE, May 1 -- The Baltimore Orioles' clubhouse continues to resemble an infirmary, leaving the team short-handed because of injuries. Manager Sam Perlozzo said designated hitter Javy Lopez likely would miss several more games because of back spasms, and first baseman Kevin Millar would miss at least another game because of a bruised right hand. But at least shortstop Miguel Tejada, who is nursing a sore left knee, might be ready to return to the field. Tejada has been the designated hitter the past two games in order to remain in the lineup and keep intact his consecutive games streak, which stands at 995, the longest in the majors. Tejada said he likely would be back at shortstop on Tuesday.
"I don't want to rush it," he said.

Perlozzo said he has noticed that Tejada has not been fond of the DH role, which he's had for only four games in his career.
"I doubt Miggy wants to DH very much," Perlozzo said. "It's a necessary evil. We just have to get him back."
Tejada entered Monday with an American League-best .422 average.

Hello there,
I am Peter Robert Casey and I am a basketball columnist. I have initiated an idea to create a sports blogroll where bloggers from all sports disciplines could participate. All you need to do is to add my blog link to your blog and i'll do the same. That way, we could have a mutual partnership and we could refer visitors to each other's blog.
Please let me know if you would be interested.

Your's in Hoops,
Peter Robert Casey
