Urrutia to rest two days with sore shoulder

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Henry Urrutia will be shut down for the next two days with a sore right shoulder, according to manager Buck Showalter.

Urrutia was available only to hit in Saturday's game, and Showalter announced following the Orioles' 9-7 win that the plan is to have Urrutia take some anti-inflammatories and shut him down in hopes of clearing all the inflammation out.

In his first Major League Spring Training, the 26-year-old Urrutia is competing for an Opening Day roster spot.

The outfielder will be replaced on Sunday's travel roster to Boston with farmhand Mike Yastrzemski, grandson of Carl, who should attract a sizable crowd against the Red Sox.
