BALTIMORE, Sept. 23 -- After missing nearly a month with a shoulder ailment, Baltimore Orioles right-hander Jeremy Guthrie is close to returning, just in time for one more start.
Manager Dave Trembley said Guthrie will pitch in a three-inning simulated game on Wednesday, the last step before activating the pitcher from the 15-day disabled list. If all goes well, Trembley said Guthrie could be ready to start either on Saturday or for Sunday's season finale.
"He says he feels real good, he says he feels 100 percent," Trembley said.
From the Washington Post, btw.
So, we have the possibility of Jeremy Guthrie returning for one last start, because, well, he wants to.
I'm not feeling this. What's the upside? The downside is huge. Your thoughts, Birdland?
