BALTIMORE—After another subpar outing, the Orioles are concerned about Miguel Gonzalez.
Gonzalez, who lost for the fifth straight time on Sunday, will be looked at carefully.
“Miguel’s come in a little sore today in a couple of places,” manager Buck Showalter said. “We’ll see how that shakes things out. I know [trainer Richie Bancells] is concerned about a little bit. We’ll see how that works out. “
Because the Orioles have an off day on Thursday, Gonzalez’s turn might not have to come up until Sept. 8.
Steve Johnson, who will be added to the team on Tuesday, is a possibility to start. Tyler Wilson, who hasn’t pitched since early this month because of an oblique injury, will throw a four-inning simulated game for Norfolk on Tuesday. Mike Wright, who is on the disabled list with a strained left calf, will pitch for the Tides on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Dylan Bundy was cleared to start a throwing program by Dr. James Andrews.
“I haven’t heard any particulars about what they found,” Showalter said.
Meanwhile, Showalter reiterated that he doesn’t expect any trades between now and midnight. He and executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette discussed additions to the roster for Tuesday.
“[Dan] didn’t mention anything to me today or hasn’t about some impending transactions that affects one of our players being traded. He doesn’t have to. He normally does,” Showalter said.
“I haven’t heard anything at all, and I haven’t heard anything that would make me change my thought.”
