Orioles | Miguel Gonzalez to DL

The Baltimore Orioles placed SP Miguel Gonzalez (thumb) on the 15-day disabled list with blister on his thumb Thursday, May 9, and recalled RP Alex Burnett from Triple-A Norfolk in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: The team was hoping that Gonzalez could be pushed back to this weekend, but that won't be the case. Steven Johnson is now healthy and was due to make his start with Norfolk Saturday, so he's the logical candidate to replace Gonzalez in the rotation. Johnson isn't likely as good as his numbers last year suggest in a small sample size. If he gets the rotation spot, he's worth watching for a few starts before using a roster spot on him in a mixed league.
