Orioles activate Chavez from disabled list
BALTIMORE -- The Orioles activated outfielder Endy Chavez from the 15-day disabled list before Friday's game.

Chavez (.162) had been on the DL since June 13 due to a strained right hamstring. He was not in the starting lineup for Friday's game but does give the Orioles some outfield depth. In addition, the Orioles optioned outfielder Xavier Avery back to Triple-A Norfolk.

This was Avery's third time with the Orioles this season, and he's shown some talent, heading back to Norfolk with a .233 average. Avery will get to play on a regular basis back in the Minors, something that won't happen in Baltimore.

The Orioles might get to see back-up catcher Taylor Teagarden this weekend. He's been on the DL since April 4 with a strained back.

Teagarden has done well in rehab and is almost ready to go. Manager Buck Showalter said he'll be catching with Single-A Delmarva Friday, and if Teagarden (also battling a hand injury) does well, they could look at bringing him back to the Orioles Saturday.
