Crichton (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day disabled list and optioned to Triple-A Norfolk.
After Crichton tossed two scoreless innings while making his second rehab appearance with the Orioles' rookie-level Gulf Coast League club Monday, he was given a clean bill of health and cleared to head back to the high minors. The right-hander was sidelined for a little under a month with the strained shoulder.
Crichton (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment Monday, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.
The Orioles could be getting some bullpen help in the near future with both Crichton and Mike Wright (shoulder) starting rehab assignments on the same day. Baltimore has yet to announce which level Crichton will be assigned to for the start of his rehab stint, but he'll likely need multiple appearances regardless after missing nearly a month with a shoulder strain. Once healthy, Crichton figures to return to the Baltimore bullpen despite his 8.03 ERA and 2.43 WHIP over 12.3 major league innings this season.
Crichton (shoulder) has had no setbacks through the first week of his throwing program in Sarasota, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
A strained left shoulder sidelined the 25-year-old right-hander on June 30. He's a little behind his bullpen mate Mike Wright, but Crichton is expected to head out on a rehab assignment in the near future. If all goes well, he could be in line to return to a low-leverage role for the Orioles by the end of July.
Crichton (shoulder) will initiate a throwing program Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Crichton hit the disabled list over the weekend with a strained left shoulder, but the fact that he's already set to begin throwing again suggests a long-term absence isn't on the table. He could be a candidate to return from the DL immediately after the All-Star break, though he likely wouldn't be in line for anything more than mop-up work out of the Orioles' bullpen.
Crichton was placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday with a right shoulder strain.
It's unclear when the injury cropped up on Crichton, but it's apparently serious enough to warrant a trip to the DL. The move is retroactive to June 27, so he'll be eligible to return July 7 if he's ready, though it's very possible the Orioles will hold him out past the All-Star break to allow him to fully recover. Crichton owns a 8.03 ERA and 2.42 WHIP through 12.1 innings of relief this season. Miguel Castro was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk in a corresponding roster move.
