On the 15-day DL
Ramon Hernandez, C BAL
News: Catcher Ramon Hernandez was put on the 15-day DL on Sunday by the Orioles because of a strained left oblique, and left-hander Kurt Birkins was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk. Hernandez was scratched from last Monday's opener, and the DL move was made retroactive to March 31, one day after his last spring training game.
Analysis: Hernandez will be out until at least April 14, so keep him reserved in all leagues for Fantasy Week 2 (April 9-15). He should be fine for the following week, though. Birkins is nothing more than a middle reliever for the deepest of AL-only leagues.
