Who the Henn is pitching tonight?

Sean Henn made his O's debut last night, which makes him the 871st different player to hit the field for the Orioles. He came to the O's organization earlier in the day yesterday in a trade from the Twin for a PTBNL.

He is being used as a situational lefty out of the bullpen, and essentially auditioning for that open spot on next year's team. He made his Orioles debut in the bottom of the 8th inning and started out his Orioles career well, by striking out J.D. Drew on 4 pitches. He then gave up back-to-back bloop singles to Kevin Youkilis and David Ortiz and was replaced in the game by Cla "the Claw" Meredith. Meh. Coulda been better, or worse. Welcome to Dave Trembley's relief pitching carousel.

Sean has played for the Yankees, Padres, Twins and now the Orioles since 2005 and his career numbers are on par to Chris Lambert's.
In 55 Major League games, Henn is 2-9 with a 7.47 ERA and 1.979 WHIP.

All of the pictures and cards that I could find of him featured him in a Yankees uniform so I don't feel like including them in my blog. There is plenty of coverage elsewhere about that team.
