Olson likely to start Tuesday

If you were unsure of the Orioles' plan to replace the injured Adam Loewen in the starting rotation the next time his turn comes up in the rotation, you got an indication last night at AAA Norfolk.

Garrett Olson, who is believed to be the potential minor league callup, was lifted after two innings in the game. He allowed one earned run, while walking four in the two innings.

But based on the fact that Olson didn't go beyond two innings and that the Orioles have used both of the potential replacements in their bullpen in Matt Albers and Jim Johnson, I think you can expect to see Olson back in the big leagues on Tuesday. I would expect to see Olson recalled and Brandon Fahey optioned out after Monday night's series finale in Chicago.

The Orioles and White Sox are set to play game three of the series this afternoon in Chicago.
