Albers Down; Mickolio Up

The Orioles have sent RHP Matt Albers down to AAA Norfolk and recalled RHP Kam Mickolio.

Grade: A

This was bound to happen. Albers has been terrible lately, giving up 17 runs in his last 6 innings pitched. Apparently his problems aren’t injury related. The club wants him to go down and work out his problems with the possibility that he comes back to the team when the rosters expand in September. Mickolio has been up and down alot lately, hopefully this time its for the long haul. He hasn’t given up a run in 4.2 innings pitched as an Oriole. In AAA he has a 3.50 ERA with 52 strikeouts and 16 walks in 43.2 innings.
