Daniel Cabrera - S - Orioles
Orioles optioned RHP Daniel Cabrera to Triple-A Ottawa.
Adam Loewen will replace him in the rotation. We're surprised it's Cabrera and Sendy Rleal, not Bruce Chen, taking the fall for Thursday's debacle. Cabrera's 5.25 ERA isn't very good, but there plenty of AL starters with worse marks. Rodrigo Lopez (6.77) is one. It can't be a good sign that the Orioles think the Triple-A coaching staff has a better shot at turning Cabrera around than Leo Mazzone does. Should Baltimore make him available in trade talks, there will be a great deal of interest.
