Luke Scott has played through a torn shoulder labrum for much of the season, with horrible results, and now the Orioles have finally decided to shut him down.

Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports that Scott will be placed on the disabled list after hitting just .223 with a .712 OPS that’s 135 points below his career mark. He went just 12-for-62 (.194) with 15 strikeouts since June 1.

Scott will be eligible to return shortly after the All-Star break, but according to Connolly season-ending surgery remains an option depending on how the shoulder responds to time off.

Felix Pie and Nolan Reimold figure to form a platoon in left field for however long Scott is out.

    But rumor has it that Luke will opt for blood-letting, leach therapy, deer-blood antidotes, and prayer before he surrenders to the modern medical approach.

      Has he considered the healing power from the mud at the bottom of Chesapeake Bay?

    Can I see the medical records proving he has a torn labrum and then deny their validity with the argument that anyone can produce those documents?

    Will his lobotomy be reversed though?

    Oddly enough, this is listed as a right knee contusion injury and not a torn labrum.

      He hurt his knee over the weekend, the DL stint is probably a combination of the two.

    He might have torn his labrum, but that mullet is still as strong as ever.

    He clearly forged the MRI results using Photoshop.

    MR. SCOTT, WHERE ARE THE TEST RESULTS?

    Luke says no surgery until he sees Dr. Andrews long form MD diploma
