Reserve catcher Taylor Teagarden (pictured) hasn't played a whole lot during the first month of the season, but the Orioles still are going to miss him now that he's on the disabled list with a dislocated thumb. The O's can only hope Chris Snyder can spell Matt Wieters effectively because Wieters can't be expected to play every game during this long run without an off day. He had just four hits in 13 at-bats and drove in three runs in six games last week (starting one as a DH), but you always have to balance that against his deft handling of the pitching staff.
