Chris Davis is likely finished for the season just 10 games after the Orioles acquired him from the Rangers in the Koji Uehara trade.

Davis was placed on the disabled list yesterday with a right shoulder injury that president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail described as “a small tear.” He’s scheduled to be examined Thursday by Dr. Lewis Yocum, which means season-ending surgery could be right around the corner.

It’s a tough break for Davis, who spent much of the past two seasons at Triple-A and was finally in line to play regularly down the stretch in Baltimore. Instead he whiffed 14 times in 40 at-bats and probably won’t be back in the lineup until 2012.

    Damaged goods?

    More like a damaged organization. Baltimore has more torn shoulders than any team I have ever seen. I wonder if they ever heard of stretching before games and practices? Cal Sr must be spinning in his grave!
