Orioles left fielder Luke Scott received the results of an MRI Monday afternoon, and the news wasn't good. He has a partially torn labrum in his right shoulder. He's been playing through the pain for a bit and expects to continue to do so, though this result likely means he's going to have to have surgery at some point -- the offseason if he makes it all the way through the 2011 season.

"I knew it was definitely a possibility," Scott said. "I was very disappointed to find out, but as I’ve said, I’ve had miracle healings before and I’m just trying for another one. I’m going to play through the pain, pray and believe in my miracle healing. That’s it." (Orioles Insider )

Scott has been the Orioles best hitter so far this season, sporting a .333 on-base percentage, six home runs, 14 RBI and 13 runs. He's often replaced on defense in the late innings by Felix Pie and the Orioles have told the media they'll continue to employ this strategy -- and they just might do it sooner in the game now to try and save Scott's injured throwing arm from more pain.

In other Orioles news, they will likely be getting J.J. Hardy back this week, possibly as early as Tuesday. He's been sidelined since April 9 with -- what else? -- an oblique injury.

Of course, it's questionable how much an upgrade Hardy will be over Robert Andino. Andino has hit. 277 with a solid .390 OBP in 78 plate appearances this season. Before falling injured, Hardy was hitting just .200 with a .294 OBP. Small sample size, to be sure, but Hardy hasn't been above average at the plate since 2008. Injuries haven't helped, but he hasn't hit when healthy since then.
