In a not so surprising move, Rhyne Hughes was sent back to Norfolk yesterday. After a hot start a few weeks ago, Hughes struggled at the plate as his average dipped to .213. The O’s have not set a corresponding move but it will most likely be Alberto Castillo. Roch Kubatko is reporting that Kam “The Almighty” Mickolio is suffering from a sore back and Dennis Sarfate is on not currently on the 40-man roster. That makes Castillo the likely choice.

Was the Hughes Experiment too short lived?

Also, Roch Kubatko is reporting that David Hernandez is going to miss his start today because of a sore back. He will be replaced by the lanky Mark Hendrickson.

Would you have rather seen Berken get the nod?
