The Orioles have announced that they’ve placed Tommy Hunter on the 15-day disabled list with a left groin strain. Hunter will likely be sidelined for three weeks.

It’s been a rough 2014 so far for Hunter. He has a 6.06 ERA and 1.84 WHIP in 16 and a third innings. He has 11 saves but three blown, two of which have come in his last four outings.

The O’s will use a committee at closer in his absence.

    Fine with me. I always wanted O’Day to be the closer anyways.

      I’m surprised the Orioles didn’t listen to you.

        For some reason the league thinks that closers have to throw 98 miles an hour.

    They were going with a closer by committee before he was injured.

    At least he didn’t pull a Michael “I sucked because I was hurt but didn’t tell anyone” Gonzalez.
