Daniel Cabrera


The Baltimore Orioles recalled Cabrera from Triple-A Ottawa on Tuesday after sending him down in July to work on his confidence.


The Baltimore Orioles placed Cabrera on the 15-day disabled list Monday with shoulder inflammation. The right-hander left his Sunday start against Kansas City in the fifth inning. He has undergone an MRI exam, and the Orioles have decided to shut him down while the results are still pending. Cabrera is 2-2 with a 5.23 ERA in eight starts this season.


The Baltimore Orioles are expected to activate Cabrera from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, in time to start against another hurler coming off the DL, Toronto's Ted Lilly. Cabrera went on the DL in mid-August and hasn't pitched since August 12. He is 8-11 with a 5.00 ERA and .233 opponent batting average in 24 starts.


The Orioles placed Cabrera on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 17. He had suffered a lower back strain while warming up in preparation to start last Wednesday at Oakland, and was replaced last minute by Eric DuBose. Reliever Chris Ray was called up from Double-A Bowie to take Cabrera's slot on the active roster.


After being scratched from his start last Wednesday because of a back problem, Cabrera is tentatively scheduled to make his next start on Tuesday against the Angels. He says his back is feeling better after getting treatment for the injury.


After leaving Baltimore's loss to the Chicago White Sox on Saturday, when he was hit on the back of the hand by a line drive, Cabrera will start on Monday against the White Sox. The Orioles' 24-year-old righthander threw just 33 pitches on Saturday before departing. He will oppose Mark Buehrle on the hill on Monday.


Cabrera left in the second inning of Baltimore's loss to the Chicago White Sox on Saturday after being hit on the back of his right hand by a line drive off the bat of Joe Crede. X-rays were negative and the injury is being described as a bruise.
