Scott Back to the DL

The Orioles have placed OF Luke Scott on the 15 day disabled list and recalled 3B Josh Bell from AAA Norfolk.

That didn’t last long. You could tell all night in his first game back from the DL that Scott just wasn’t comfortable. His shoulder is clearly still bothering him and at this point I don’t see why he doesn’t just get surgery done to correct the issue. It would end his season but he isn’t performing well anyway and the team isn’t in contention so why not try to get 100% healthy for the 2012 season. Bell comes back up after getting a one game call up earlier in the week. Looks like he’ll have an extended chance to be a bench player. It beats AAA I’m sure and he can always earn more playing time. Maybe he’ll split time with Nolan Reimold and Matt Wieters at the DH spot until Vladimir Guerrero comes off the disabled list.
