Casey at the bat: Orioles roster move

May 07, 2007 | WNST Staff

Jon Leicester is here in the Orioles clubhouse, and while no announcement has been made officially concerning the roster move, my guess is that Kurt Birkins could be gone again.

I spoke with Leicester and he said he got the call last night around 6 p.m. He was scheduled to pitch today in Norfolk, where he was 1-2 with a 3.19 ERA. Leicester said he is ready to go if the team needs him today and would be OK with going into the long-relief role for the O’s.

I am saying Birkins is gone, because the team did not seem too happy with his performance yesterday and they have options that they can use on him.

Back to the clubhouse to see if there is more news.
