Orioles place Dean Kremer on 15-day IL with strained right triceps

CHICAGO (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles will have to get by without another starting pitcher after placing Dean Kremer on the 15-day injured list Friday because of a strained right triceps.

It's another hit for Baltimore after veteran John Means was placed on the 15-day list the previous day because of a strained left forearm. The second-place Orioles are trying to keep pace with the Yankees in the AL East. They were 30-18 and trailed New York by three games entering Friday's matchup with the Chicago White Sox.

Kremer is 3-4 with a 4.32 ERA in nine starts. The right-hander got tagged for five runs in four innings, matching his shortest outing this season, in Monday’s loss at St. Louis.

Baltimore recalled right-hander Dillon Tate and and left-hander Nick Vespi from Triple-A Norfolk and optioned righty Jonathan Heasley to the minor league club on Friday.
