Brian Matusz Needs MRI

Just saw Brian Matusz will need an MRI for his back. He has been scratched for his start tomorrow. This is not good news.  So far since beginning of spring training he's had to have a wart removed, took a line drive off his forearm, and now a bad back. It will be interesting to see who they decide to call up if he has to be placed on the DL.Chris Jakabauskas could be a possibility if he does hit the DL, but lord I hope not.

Edit by Stacey: 

MASNsports.com confirms this bad news. From the article:

Brian Matusz left the ballpark to undergo an MRI on his back after experiencing pain while trying to throw. He's a candidate to join Justin Duchscherer on the disabled list and create a possible ripple effect in the rotation.

No. 3 starter Chris Tillman could be bumped up a day and start tomorrow night, or the Orioles could bring up a pitcher from their minor league camp.

Manager Buck Showalter indicated that the pain is to the left side of Matusz's middle back area.
