Orioles make roster moves, Gonzalez to DL

The Baltimore Orioles made a series of roster moves addressing their pitching.

Miguel Gonzalez was placed on the 15-day disabled list with an oblique problem that scratched him from his most recent start.  Expected to take his spot is Kevin Gausman, who should be called up in the coming days.

In addition to the loss of Gonzalez, the club has optioned right-hander Preston Guilmet to Triple-A Norfolk.  Taking his place and making his major league debut will be 2009 50th round selection, Tim Berry.  Berry, a left-hander, represents the lowest-draft player in club history to play in the Majors.  He went 3-3 in 11 starts for Bowie, with a 4.12 ERA in 63 innings pitched.

Evan Meek will be joining Berry in the bullpen after pitching in 12 games for Norfolk.  To make room for Meek on the 40-man roster, 2014 Rule 5 selection, Michael Almanzar, has been placed on the 60-day DL.
