Dan Connolly at the Baltimore Sun tweets more bad news for former Orioles top draft pick Matt Hobgood. The right handed pitcher will have surgery on April 2 to size down his rotator cuff and is expected to miss the entire season.
The O’s selected Hobgood fifth overall in 2009 ahead of names like Zack Wheeler, Mike Minor, Mike Leake, Jacob Turner and Drew Storen.
And you wonder why this team has lost for a decade and a half?
In seven starts with Aberdeen last season, Hobgood went 0-6 with a 10.46 ERA.
