The Orioles have designated pitcher Brad Bergesen for assignment to make room for Bill Hall on the 40-man roster.

Bergesen is 1-2 with a 5.13 ERA in eight games, including six starts, at Triple-A Norfolk. He's allowed 45 hits, walked 13 and struck out 17 in 33 1/3 innings.

Bergesen tossed five scoreless innings in Thursday's start after rejoining the Tides' rotation.

Bergesen, who lost his arbitration hearing this winter and is making $800,000 instead of the $1.2 million he sought, is 17-24 with a 4.68 ERA in 83 major league games.

The Orioles have designated Brad Bergesen for assignment, reports Dan Connolly of The Baltimore Sun (on Twitter). The move clears a 40-man roster spot for Bill Hall, who was called up from Triple-A.

Bergesen, 26, had pitched to a 5.13 ERA with 4.6 K/9 and 3.5 BB/9 for the team's Triple-A affiliate this season. He's made 59 starts and 24 relief appearances for the Orioles over the last three seasons and owns a 4.68 ERA in 394 1/3 career innings. Bergesen appears to be a candidate for a waiver claim given his age, flexibility, and the fact that he has a minor league option remaining.
