Jason Hammel threw a bullpen today, and it went okay according to Buck Showalter. Hammel will rest for two days and then throw another bullpen session that includes around 40 pitches, according to Rock Kubatko.
Hammel’s likely return to the Orioles in 2-3 weeks increases their playoff chances. If you’re looking to bet on the Orioles, check out this website for Sportsbook reviews and more sports information.
