The Orioles today announced that they have placed RHP CHRIS JAKUBAUSKAS on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 17, with a strained right groin. He appeared in three games for the Orioles, pitching to a 7.36 ERA (7.1IP, 6ER) and twice going 3.0 innings or more.
The contract of LHP CLAY RAPADA has been selected from Triple-A Norfolk; he will join the Orioles for tonight's game and wear #57. In two games with the Tides, Rapada did not allow a run and recorded one save in a total of two innings.
To make room for Rapada on the 40-man roster, the Orioles transferred RHP JUSTIN DUCHSCHERER to the 60-day disabled list.
