Every Major League team has a checklist.

The Baltimore Orioles have one.

Talent: B

Potential: A

Stats: D

Durability of Players: F

The O’s have had trouble with many things this season, and the injury bug adds more bad news to the cause.

They have the talent, but it has not been working out this year. 

The only player on the 25 man roster that is actually producing numbers is Ty Wiggington, who has come out of nowhere (not to mention the fact that he is the only All-Star candidate for the 2010 MLB All-Star Game in LA).

The injury bug had hit Brian Roberts, as he is finally returning to baseball activities this week. It will still be some time before he gets into an Orioles uniform.

It has also hit closer Mike Gonzalez and reliever Jim Johnson—who was replacing Gonzalez in the closing role. Both are still rehabbing.  

But also add two more players to the DL: pitchers Koji Uehara (right elbow strain) and Alfredo Simon (left hamstring strain). 

This has been already a tough year, but there is still baseball to be played.

As many expected, this is going to be one long season for the birds.
