ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -The Baltimore Orioles reinstated third baseman Melvin Mora from the 15-day disabled list Sunday and optioned infielder Luis Hernandez to Double-A Bowie.
Mora had been out since July 13 with a mid-foot sprain. He went 2-for-7 in two minor league rehab games with the Gulf Coast League Orioles.
``Mora would not have been activated today if he did not assure all of us that he's 100 percent,'' Baltimore manager Dave Trembley said.
Mora was hitting .265 with 12 homers and 41 RBIs in 79 games when he was injured.
Hernandez hit .333 with four RBIs over 13 games. He was called up from Triple-A Norfolk on July 7 and made his major league-debut one day later.
