And the hits keep on coming. From Britt Ghiroli's blog:

The injury problems continue to pile up for the Orioles, who will be without second baseman Robert Andino for 3-4 weeks after Monday’s MRI revealed a left shoulder strain. Andino will be placed on the disabled list on Tuesday, with starter Zach Britton taking his roster spot[.]

Well, that really sucks. We're now down one Brian Roberts and one Robert Andino, which means that tonight we're seeing Tolleson in the lineup at second base tonight, and per Buck Showalter, he and Ryan Flaherty are the internal options to replace him.

The offense is really struggling right now and while Robert Andino isn't a huge bat, switching from him to Tolleson/Flaherty is definitely a step down. Add that to the injury to starting pitcher Jason Hammel which will leave him on the disabled list for at least three weeks, and it's not looking good for the team.
