Brian Matusz scratched from start; DL possible

Orioles lefty Brian Matusz will not make Saturday’s scheduled start after he came in on Friday with acute middle back pain, and manager Buck Showalter said the team will wait and see the results of an MRI before determining a plan.

This is painful to read. Thinking of all the next steps this creates, plus the potential loss, even short term of the only potential ace of the staff, the impact on calling on Britton it all makes my head hurt.

Even more painful is the thought that Mark Hendrickson is being considered for a few starts. Migraine on its way.

Matusz to DL to make room for Britton. Strained intercostal muscle. Macphail says anywhere 3-6 weeks
