    Jose Acevedo breaks collarbone - out for the season

    Sad story from a player who was once a shining light of hope for the Reds

    O's pitcher breaks ribs, collarbone; will miss season

    SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) -- Baltimore Orioles pitcher Jose Acevedo broke four ribs and his collarbone Friday in a motorcycle accident and is expected to miss the entire season, his Dominican winter league team said.

    Acevedo was conscious and in intensive care Friday, Aguilas Cibaenas executive Luichy Sanchez told The Associated Press.

    A non-roster invite to Orioles spring training, Acevedo crashed his motorcycle into a car early Friday in Santiago. Aguilas Cibaenas officials did not know if the car was moving at the time of the accident.

    "Is this a surprise? Absolutely," Orioles executive vice president Mike Flanagan said in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. "We're obviously saddened to hear the news. This sounds like a serious accident."

    Acevedo, who did not pitch for a major league team in 2006, is 18-25 with a 5.74 ERA in five seasons with Cincinnati and Colorado. He threw eight innings and was named an All-Star in the recent Caribbean Series in Puerto Rico, which the Aguilas won for the Dominican Republic.

    Pitchers and catchers were due to report to Orioles camp by Wednesday, but Acevedo never arrived. Flanagan said the delay was caused by difficulty in securing an airline reservation, and Acevedo had been expected to join the team this weekend.

    Bad "break" for Jose, who had a really good winter league season.
