Roch Kubatko of MASN passes along notice that Orioles outfielder Luke Scott slugged two home runs and tallied six total RBI on Thursday evening in a rehab game with Double-A Bowie.

Scott drove in a run with a groundout in the first inning, smashed a two-run homer to center field in the third, hit a two-run double in the fifth and ended the night with a solo shot. He now has three home runs in three Double-A rehab games.

Scott has experienced a couple of setbacks with his sore right shoulder and the Orioles were planning on asking him to spend a considerable amount of time on playing minor league rehab games, but tonight’s performance may have changed their minds. Kubatko, for one, suspects that the 33-year-old will be activated from the disabled list this weekend to serve as Baltimore’s DH during a three-game set against the Angels.

Scott was batting .223/.305/.408 with nine homers and 22 RBI through 233 plate appearances.

    Until he produces the balls he hit out of the yard, it’s suspect.

      Says Who? I’ll believe it when I see it. Were you there Drew? And who the hell is Roch Kubatko, obviously not an American with a name like that. What is MASN, some pinko organization masquerading as a media outlet. Plus, I never heard of Bowie, except at the Alamo, where real Americans were actually fightin’ Mexicans crossin’ the border.

      What’s this disabled list? Some sorry assed excuse for a bunch of no good loafers, trying to scam the system. Bet they get paid for sittin’ around on their fat asses collectin’ government checks. I don’t care about any fancy shmancy statistitics. What’s DH stand for Didn’t Happen? Nice try Drew, but where I come from you gotta Show Me.

        Wow, this site is more popular at night than I thought. Must be a slew of Luke Scott fans out there, craving his return date.

        WOW! That is an awful lot of people without their sarcasm detectors on this evening. (Or just no sense of humour)

        “What’s this disabled list? Some sorry assed excuse for a bunch of no good loafers, trying to scam the system. ”

        That was the funniest thing I’ve read all week. Props

        On a side, note, this is the first time I have seen AA and rehab in a headline, and drugs and alcohol have nothing to do with it.

        My Luke Scott baseball card doesnt have a raised seal. Should I be worried?

      Holy cats! As of 11/8 pm there are 11 thumbs up and 50 birthers so far…

        Kiwi, I think it has more to do with the fact that seeing the same stupid, tired Scott jokes every time something is posted about him is old.

        Yes he’s a birther, we know already.

        How about we talk about baseball?

    All well and good, but what is Scott’s view on the debt limit? Does he agree with his fellow right-wingers that it should not be raised? Inquiring minds want to know.

      Tough crowd this evening huh?!

    Someone is just gaming the thumbs system again. just like the umpires thread a few weeks ago. Just a little birther humor. Chill out guys.
