Bynum officially on the roster

and he's 1-for-1. He just singled to right field to start the third inning. The Orioles lead the Royals 1-0 in the top of the third.

Bynum was activated from the DL earlier today and recalled from AA-Bowie. He's in the lineup at shortstop and the nine hold.

Eider Torres was optioned to AAA-Norfolk to even the roster out at 25. The Orioles continue to carry 13 pitchers and I wouldn't be surprised to see that change in the upcoming weeks.

Bynum is now on second as he advanced on a wild pitch.

I don't really think that Bynum is the answer at Shortstop. He seems to fit in more as a utility guy. However, he might be the Orioles best option, and he should provide more offense than Luis Hernandez has thus far. But expect Hernandez to become a late inning defensive replacement for Bynum. Hernandez had played a bit better of late, but he definitely isn't ready to be an everyday major league shortstop.
