Chris Ray On His Way Back Up

The Orioles will recall RHP Chris Ray from AAA Norfolk for Tuesdays game against the Florida Marlins. LHP Alberto Castillo has been optioned back to AAA Norfolk.

Grade: B

Castillo just wasn’t very effective in his short stint with the O’s. It was small sample size, but left handed hitters were batting .417 off of him. He was continuing the trend Jamie Walker started in the role. Ray was sent down last month to work on things, and it looks like he may have righted himself out a bit. He pitched in 8 games while he was in Norfolk. He ended up with 12 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 4 BB, 13 K, and a save for an ERA of 2.25. If Ray can continue along those lines he will be a very nice help for the bullpen. Now if we can replace Mark Hendrickson with someone good, we’ll be alright.
