Adam Loewen On The 15-Day DL

It sucks for the big kid; however, one could tell something was really off with him. After seeing him labor yesterday, it was not good. It's too bad that he might have another setback, and I would not be surprised if it's related to his arm problems in 2007.

For the short-term, the loss may not eally impact the Orioles that much; however, long term, the loss of a youngster who has had flashes of brillance, but has struggled to maintain some consistency may be the question.

From the Baltimore Sun: "The Orioles announced today that they have placed left-handed pitcher Adam Loewen on the 15-day disabled list with left elbow soreness. Infielder Eider Torres was called up from Triple-A Norfolk to fill Loewen's spot on the roster.

Loewen, a 24-year-old left-hander who gave up five earned runs and lasted just 2 2/3 innings in the Orioles' 8-7 victory over the Seattle Mariners last night, acknowledged after the game what some of his teammates had suspected while watching him labor through the second shortest outing of his career.

When he was removed from the game, Loewen complained of forearm discomfort in his pitching arm that he claims is unrelated to the stress fracture in his elbow that required surgery last June."
