Justin Turner had two hits and an RBI filling in for Brian Roberts in the Orioles' 3-1 win over the Twins on Tuesday. I haven't seen a photo of the guy, so hot may be a relative term. Just sayin'. -duck

Hernandez to AAA? -
Hernandez has a 14/1 K/BB ratio, but since he's allowed three homers, his ERA stands at 4.50 through 10 innings. Hernandez is still working as a starter, even though it's doubtful that he'll have a rotation spot unless someone gets injured. He'd have a better chance of making the Orioles as a reliever, but since he's not getting any experience there right now, it looks like he's probably Triple-A bound. -duck
