Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez shut down with groin injury

Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez exited Tuesday’s start in the fifth inning with a groin injury and now he’s been placed on the disabled list.

Baltimore manager Buck Showalter indicated that the team is hoping Gonzalez will be able to return when his 15-day minimum stay on the DL is up, but he does have a previous history of groin problems.

Mike Wright will step into the rotation for Gonzalez, who has somewhat quietly and under-the-radar posted ERAs of 3.25, 3.78, 3.23, and 3.33 in his four seasons with the Orioles.
