Orioles outfielder Endy Chavez, his strained right hamstring still sore after pulling up lame rounding first base last night, is out of the lineup for tonight's game against the Pirates and is currently day-to-day.
Chavez said he didn't believe he would have been able to play tonight but said he didn't think the injury would force him onto the disabled list for the second time this season. He spent 19 days on the DL month with an oblique strain.
"I feel better today," Chavez said. "It’s still sore. We’ll give it some treatment and see how it responds the next two days.
The Orioles will likely made a decision whether to place Chavez on the DL tomorrow before going on the road for six interleague games in National League parks.
"It would be kind of tough going into six National League games short on the bench, so we’ll see," manager Buck Showalter said. "It’s sort of tough to test it out because you don’t want to injure it further. So we’ll see."
