Top pitching prospect Hayden Penn has apparently made his last start this season at Triple-A Ottawa. A day after the 21-year-old pitched eight shutout innings for the Lynx, Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo said he doesn't feel Penn needs any more minor league starts. At this point, the Orioles' plan is to call him up when rosters expand Friday and plug him into the starting rotation. Anything after that - such as whom the young right-hander will replace in the rotation, if anybody at all - has not been decided yet. "We'll have to figure out a way to get him in there," Perlozzo said.
