Orioles call up Ishikawa, Britton
DETROIT (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles have purchased the contract of infielder Travis Ishikawa from Triple-A Norfolk and put right-hander Miguel Gonzalez on the paternity list.
Baltimore also recalled left-hander Zach Britton from Nolfolk so he could start Tuesday night’s game at Detroit. The Orioles designated infielder Yamaico Navarro for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for Ishikawa.
Gonzalez and his wife Lucia had their first child, daughter Leah, on Monday night.
Orioles manager Buck Showalter says ailing right-hander Jason Hammel could start Friday or Saturday, and he could be available out of the bullpen before then.
Pats’ Gronkowski undergoes back surgery
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has undergone back surgery.
The operation was performed on Tuesday by Dr. Robert Watkins and was successful, said Drew Rosenhaus, Gronkowski’s agent.
On May 20, Gronkowski had his fourth surgery on the left forearm that he broke on Nov. 18 while blocking for an extra point in a 59-24 win over the Indianapolis Colts. He broke it again in the Patriots’ first playoff game, a 41-28 win over the Houston Texans. Rosenhaus said the fourth surgery was expected to be the last on his forearm.
The Patriots open training camp in late July and start the regular season on Sept. 8 at Buffalo.
In 43 NFL games, Gronkowski has scored 39 touchdowns, 38 on passes and one on a run.
