Luke Scott comes off DL, will play through torn shoulder again

Hitting two homers in a Double-A game yesterday apparently convinced the Orioles that Luke Scott was done resting and rehabbing his shoulder injury, because he’s off the disabled list and back in the lineup for tonight’s game.

Scott performed horribly while trying to play through a partially torn labrum, hitting .187 in a 35-game stretch before finally shutting things down three weeks ago. He may still end up needing offseason surgery, but in the meantime he’ll give it another go after homering three times in three rehab games.

For tonight he’ll start at designated hitter and bat sixth, assuming the lineup card posted by the Orioles isn’t a fake.

    Luke Scott has the constitutional right to make dumb statements and to be the butt of jokes.

      I believe his constitutional right to make idiotic statements essentially mandates people mocking him—kind of like a civic duty.

        Luke Scott’s relatives are gaming the thumbs down button again.

        Look people, are we even sure this is the REAL Luke Scott? Obama could have had him replaced with a robot you know.

        Luke Scott’s relatives could not be responsible. They are still working on the opposable thumb technique.

    Loving the mid-air pic. Makes me think of the old SNL skit with the late night sports memorabilia guys selling a Shaq poster. HE IS STILL IN THE AIR!

    That lineup card clearly was not a real American.

      Someone check Buck Showalter’s birth certificate.

    With more performances like that, teams wanting to sign him might be willing to increase their debt limit. And just like when Paul Revere warned the British the British were coming, Luke Scott is putting out a warning to American League pitchers: He will be your daddy, just like John Quincy Adams is a founding daddy.

    • Utley's Hair - Jul 22, 2011 at 6:38 PM

      I’ll nitpick: John Quincy Adams HAD a Founding Daddy…or drop the Quincy. But I laughed anyway.

    • hittfamily - Jul 22, 2011 at 8:02 PM

      No…the Quincy part is right. I mean it’s wrong, so very, very wrong. But in this context, it is correct. Google JQA and Founding Father, and you will learn some interesting things :)

    Has anyone seen JQA’s birth certificate? Did he even have one?

    • natstowngreg - Jul 22, 2011 at 11:05 PM

      If there was one, it was British. He was just short of 9 years old when his father helped create the USA.

      • jwbiii - Jul 23, 2011 at 1:47 AM

        And seven when Paul Revere rode to warn the British.

        Luke Scott says you can still have baby teeth and be a founding father.

    Luke Scotts relatives can save the wear and tear on their thumbs. Luke is probably going back on the DL. Luke will not have to answer questions about Washington’s birth certificate if he ever had one.
