Game 36, Mariners At Orioles
Pineda vs Arrieta, 4:05 pm.
If you were hoping David Aardsma was going to be back shortly, you can forget that – Shannon Drayer reports that Aardsma has a “grade 2 sprain of his UCL”, which is the ligament that gets replaced in Tommy John surgery. He’s going to see Dr. Lewis Yocum, and while I’m certainly not a medical expert, it seems like surgery is probably on the table. There’s probably a pretty good chance that Aardsma’s season is over.
As we talked about below, the M’s have a new line-up today thanks to Bradley’s release. Justin Smoak is your new #3 hitter.
