Monday Bird Droppings

The Hall of Famer and his mini statue.

The weekend is over and the Orioles have dropped another series. They now embark on an eight-game road trip with four games each in Minnesota and Cleveland. In case you missed the latest injury news over the weekend, Jason Hammel is having knee surgery today and will be out at least three weeks. Robert Andino hurt his shoulder on a dive yesterday and came out of the game. He's having an MRI today, but Andino talked about it as though it wasn't a major thing.
