Roster moves: Roberts & Lee to the DL, Patton & Jakubauskas called up

New, comments

Per MASNsports.com, Brian Roberts has been placed on the new seven day disabled list that was created for concussions only, and Derrek Lee has been placed on the fifteen day disabled list for his strained oblique. Troy Patton and Chris Jakubauskas were called up to replace the two injured Orioles, joining Brandon Snyder, who made his 2011 debut last night. Snyder replaced Cesar Izturis, who will have surgery on his ulnar nerve and be out for six to eight weeks.  

Snyder will get the start tonight at first base, Robert Andino will play second base and bat lead off, and Felix Pie will play left field. Matt Wieters understandably needs a break after catching all fifteen innings last night, so Jake Fox will make the start behind the plate. That gives the Orioles a bench of Wieters and Luke Scott. That's a pretty shallow bench, but at least the pinch hitting options aren't bad.
