Scott confident DL stint won't be necessary
BALTIMORE -- Orioles left fielder Luke Scott said prior to Friday's game that he is "very optimistic" that the right shoulder impingement that has been plaguing him will not warrant a trip to the disabled list.

Scott -- who was in Friday's starting lineup -- said he has been playing through the discomfort since late in Spring Training, and he hopes Monday's MRI will give him and the team more clarity concerning the problem.

"I want to just see if there's anything going on in there, and if there is, what to do about it," Scott said. "If there isn't, that's good. I just want to know exactly and go from there."

Scott entered Friday's game hitting .259 with a team-leading six homers and 13 RBIs.
