PostPost #1 by Tucker Blair » September 21st, 2012, 1:31 pm



The Orioles today announced that they have reinstated DH JIM THOME and LHP TROY PATTON from the 15-day disabled list.

Thome was placed on the DL on July 31 (retroactive to July 28) with a herniated disc in his neck. He has batted .261/.354/.391 in 18 games for the Orioles after being acquired from Philadelphia on June 30. Thome was batting .316/.409/.526 in his last 10 games before going on the DL.

Patton was placed on the DL on August 14 (retroactive to August 13) with a right ankle sprain. Patton is 1-0 with a 2.58 ERA (52.1IP, 15ER) and 48 strikeouts in 50 appearances this season. He currently owns a career-high 18-game scoreless streak (13.2IP) since July 6.

I'am actually glad to have Thome back now with Betemit gone. Nice to have a shutdown lefty again.
