Yesterday we witnessed a foul ball hit a catcher in a spot where no man ever wants to be hit. Needless to say, I’m happy they invented cups.
It was announced yesterday that Caleb was going to the hospital, after remaining in the game. Roch Kubatko tweeted today that it’s official, Caleb is heading to the DL. I have not seen for the length of time he’ll be out, but my guess is the minimum, 15 days.
The Orioles will call up Francisco Pena today, to fill the backup role.
Pena is a career .244 hitter while with triple-a Norfolk.
