Orioles give Taylor his walking papers

October 12, 1990

The Orioles shuffled some pitchers yesterday, moving Mark Williamson and Brian DuBois from the disabled list to the major-league roster and placing Dorn Taylor on waivers for the purpose of giving him his unconditional release.

Williamson broke the ring finger on his right (pitching) hand Aug. 18 and did not return to the lineup. He was 8-2 with one save and a 2.21 earned run average in 49 games, all in relief.

DuBois, whom the Orioles traded to Detroit for Keith Moreland in 1989, was reacquired by the Orioles on Aug. 29. He underwent surgery to reconstruct the ligament in his left elbow on Sept. 19.

Taylor came to the Orioles Sept. 5 from the Pittsburgh organization to complete the trade that sent Jay Tibbs to the Pirates on June 15. Taylor appeared in four games with the Orioles, going 0-0 with a 2.45 ERA.
