This got circulated over the weekend — and creatively expounded upon — but this screen capture from 30FPS pretty much says all that needs to be said about late March spring training games:

I feel bad for him, but we’ll all be better off if he goes back to the minors, the major leaguers all head north and everyone begin to play some baseball that counts.

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.
