NOTES: Adam Jones goes on the 15-day DL, but is probably done for the year with a break in his foot that may take 4-6 weeks to mend. That means Sept 20 on the outside, and there's no point to bringing him back for 7 or so games at that point.

Chris Waters makes the start, and whatever he "found" in Bowie, he left there. His ERA went from 1.69 with the Baysox to a less-than-adequate 5.70 at Norfolk. OK, that's almost Liz-esque, and that's not good. He does have a decent K -to-BB rate for the year, which he maintained for the most part at Norfolk. Here's hoping, but there's a reason an almost 28-year-old was still in AA at the beginning of the season - he never was that good to begin with.

Lou (Don't Call Me Luis) Montanez makes his way to the 25-man roster as well. His numbers this year are gaudy - .355 / .385 / .601 / .986 for the season at Bowie. He was also named Eastern League Player of the Month for his efforts, beating out teammate Matt Wieters. But again, what is a 26-year-old doing at AA if he's capable of hitting MLB pitching? I suspect we will find out over the next 6 weeks. Adam Loewen was transferred to the 60-day DL to get him off the 40-man roster and Lou on it. He really needs a nickname, and I ain't gonna call him Sweet Lou. Between Whitaker and Pinella, that's retired.

Let's just get out of Anaheim with no more injuries and I'll be relieved. I don't think we have a 4-32 in us to finish the season (DD will single-handedly WILL this team to at least 15 more wins, if not 20), but the season is definitely about to get a lot longer with the rotation we currently have and the lack of Adam Jones in the #2 spot.
