In flurry of moves today, the Orioles said “So long” to Justin Duchscherer. Duchscherer was recovering some injuries and it was hoped that he might contribute to this young rotation; however, every time it seemed like he would make progress in rehab, it would be followed by a setback.
I’m not really frustrated by this. The O’s took a gamble on a guy and lost.
So now on to another risk. The O’s picked up pitcher Jo Jo Reyes on the Waive Wire. Reyes, 26, went 5-8 with a 5.40 ERA (110.0IP, 66ER) in 20 starts for the Blue Jays this season. That should fit perfectly into what the O’s are currently sending out there.
