Tatum Returns

The Orioles have called up C Craig Tatum from AAA Norfolk and sent LHP Troy Patton down to the same team.

So that makes two stints Patton has had with the Orioles where he never got into a single game. He’ll go back down to AAA Norfolk’s rotation and wait for his next opportunity. I’m glad we’re finally back to a four man bench, I just wish we would’ve gotten rid of Mark Hendrickson instead of Patton. But I understand the decision. Tatum comes back up to be the back up catcher and Jake Fox will return to his previous role. Now we’ll be able to pinch hit late in games instead of saving Fox for an emergency. Tatum played in six games while he was down and struggled with the bat hitting .095/.208/.190 with a triple and 3 RBI. Now hes back in the bigs to play once a week.
