Brad Bergesen Outrighted To Norfolk

Brad Bergesen Outrighted To Norfolk

The Orioles won a game today in Kansas City, lost a minor league player and retained another one.

The Yankees claimed infielder Matt Antonelli off waivers this afternoon, but pitcher Brad Bergesen has cleared waivers and will be outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk.

Bergesen was designated for assignment on May 12 to make room for infielder/outfielder Bill Hall on the 40-man roster. He was 1-2 with a 5.13 ERA in eight games, including six starts, at Norfolk, with 45 hits allowed, 13 walks and 17 strikeouts in 33 1/3 innings.

The Orioles didn't find much interest in Bergesen on the trade market, so they'll keep him in the organization and return him to the Tides' rotation.

They could use him. Norfolk has another doubleheader scheduled today, and Eddie Gamboa is listed as the Game 2 starter. Miguel Gonzalez is listed as tomorrow night's starter, and Sunday is TBA.

Bergesen tossed five scoreless innings in his last appearance with Norfolk after rejoining the rotation. He's 17-24 with a 4.68 ERA in 83 major league games.

At this point in his career I no longer consider him a ML pitcher, but I'm glad we didn't lose Bergesen. Maybe the fact that other teams were not interested in him will be a wake up call for Brad and he will RUN to Rick Peterson looking for help to get his career back. It would be nice to have the Brad Bergesen of 2009 back.

We've played this tune too many times. How about signing a minor league arm with some upside??? 8-)
