"I'd say I'm ready," Hammel said. If the Orioles need him, Jason Hammel said he's ready to return. Hammel threw 2 2/3 shutout innings in his first rehab start last Thursday at Bowie. Hammel struck out two, walked one and remained in command throughout. Given expanded rosters in September, the team can add Hammel whenever they want and he's expected to be there for Thursday's series opener against the White Sox. Carlos Asuaje's RBI single to center gave Lowell its run off of Hammel. I feel healthy, so I'm ready to go when they want me."
