A magnetic resonance imaging taken today on left fielder Luke Scott's right shoulder revealed a torn labrum, according to Orioles President of Baseball Operations Andy MacPhail. "It's something that we have to manage so it's not anything that necessarily is a [disabled list]-type thing,"
With the injury confirmed by members of the medical community, the question now regards how the team and Scott will handle this. It seems like it's only a throwing issue right now, and the Orioles are willing to live with it if Scott is. MacPhail said that one step the team can take is to put in a defensive replacement -- he specifically mentioned Felix Pie -- a little earlier in the game.
Scott has been hot lately, bringing his season line up to .253/.333/.505.
