No, not that one. The other one:

The Boston Red Sox and Lowell (MA) Spinners today announced the
extension of their Player Development Contract (PDC) for an additional
two years. The extension keeps the Red Sox New York-Penn League
Short-Season Single-A affiliate in Lowell through the 2012 season.

Oh, don’t look at me like that. If you weren’t hungry for some baseball news you wouldn’t clicked in the first place.

Orioles place Chris Davis on injured list

The Orioles announced on Sunday that first baseman Chris Davis has been placed on the 10-day disabled list due to a hip injury. Pitcher Evan Phillips was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk.

It is unclear when Davis, 33, suffered the injury, but he hadn’t started since Thursday. Davis famously got off to a very slow start — setting a record for futility — but has hit better over the last six weeks or so. Since April 13, he has a .229/.302/.427 batting line with five home runs and 15 RBI in 106 plate appearances. Still not what the Orioles want, but better than nothing.

Renato Núñez and Trey Mancini will handle first base while Davis is recovering from his injury.
