SEATTLE - The Orioles announced today that they have placed left-handed pitcher Adam Loewen on the 15-day disabled list with left elbow soreness. Infielder Eider Torres was called up from Triple-A Norfolk to fill Loewen's spot on the roster.
Loewen, a 24-year-old left-hander who gave up five earned runs and lasted just 2 2/3 innings in the Orioles' 8-7 victory over the Seattle Mariners last night, acknowledged last night what some of his teammates had suspected while watching him labor through the second shortest outing of his career.
When he was removed from the game, Loewen complained of forearm discomfort in his pitching arm that he claims is unrelated to the stress fracture in his elbow that required surgery last June.
