Tuesday, September 28: Bruce Zimmermann returns as Orioles try to play spoiler vs Chris Sale

Recommended Posts

Gametime:  7:05 pm

Forecast:  mid 70s, there have been on and off light showers during the day and there could be a few tonight, but very minor

Roster MovesBruce Zimmermann is coming off the 60 day IL to start.  Tyler Nevin is recalled from Norfolk.  Anthony Santander and Chris Ellis both went on the 10 day IL, thus ending their seasons.  To make room on the 40 man roster for Zimmermann, Keegan Akin was moved from the 10 day IL to the 60 day IL.

Pregame Ceremony:  Orioles honor the winner of the Jim Palmer Award for Minor League Pitcher of the year, Grayson Rodriguez, and the co-winners of the Brooks Robinson Award for Minor League Player of the year, Adley Rutschman and Kyle Stowers.

Here we go.   Last week of games to root for the O's until 2022.   Chance to play spoiler, chance for Bruce Zimmermann to show he is healthy as a leadup to next season.  He may go four innings or so, according to Hyde.

I figured that the Orioles bar would look like that, but check out the Pirates.


Wow.  So we've used 62 players this year, I believe, and 59 of them apparently combined for 0 WAR?
