Orioles | Ainsworth Out Nearly Two Months

The Baltimore Sun's Roch Kubatko is reporting Baltimore Orioles SP Kurt Ainsworth (shoulder) has two tears in his right shoulder and a defect that threaten to end his season, and perhaps his playing career. Ainsworth has been found to have a torn labrum and a partial tear of the rotator cuff. Dr. Charles Silberstein, the team's orthopedic specialist, also found a divot in the glenoid fossa, or shoulder socket. Rather than undergo surgery immediately, Ainsworth will return to Fort Lauderdale, and rest for 10 days before beginning a throwing program, and he won't be cleared to pitch for at least 1 1/2 months.
