Baltimore will be down a starter after placing right-hander Miguel Gonzalez on the disabled list with a thumb blister.

To replace him on the roster the Orioles called up Alex Burnett from Triple-A, but he’s strictly a reliever and they haven’t announced yet who’ll take Gonzalez’s turn in the rotation Saturday.

Gonzalez was a big part of the Orioles’ surprising playoff run last season, going 9-4 with a 3.25 ERA in 105 innings as a 28-year-old rookie. This year he had a 4.58 ERA in six starts.

    Gee, sure would be nice to have Bundy right about now…

    I wonder if they’ll call up Gausman in a few days when Gonzalez’s turn comes up.

    I think they may kick the tires on Matusz again. Call it a hunch. Regardless Buck said Miggy’s blister should only hold him back one start and he’ll be back at it.
