Orioles Place Simon On 15-Day DL, Recall Berken

TORONTO (AP) —  The Baltimore Orioles have placed reliever Alfredo Simon on the 15-day disabled list with a right hamstring injury.

The move was announced Wednesday and is retroactive to June 13.

To fill the right-hander’s spot on the roster, Baltimore recalled righty Jason Berken from Triple-A Norfolk.

Simon is 1-1 with a 3.14 ERA in five appearances this season.

Berken went 0-2 with a 7.94 ERA in 15 appearances with the Orioles earlier this year. He is 0-1 with a 3.86 ERA in four starts for Norfolk but is expected to fill a bullpen role with the Orioles.
