Kam Mickolio left the Orioles before the end of the road trip to have his pitching arm examined by team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens. Mickolio has been used sparingly in the last couple weeks due to arm fatigue, and the Orioles sent him home to make sure he’s OK.
“Mickolio will not be available for this series. He went back to Baltimore,” said Orioles manager Dave Trembley of his wayward reliever. “Right now, we’re just saying that he has some inflammation in the biceps area. He’ll rejoin us when we get back on Monday.”
