1057topper Orioles RHP Simon Returns From Restricted List

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles have reinstated right-hander Alfredo Simon from the restricted list and optioned infielder Josh Bell to Triple-A Norfolk.

The moves were made Tuesday.

Baltimore transferred second baseman Brian Roberts to the 60-day disabled list to make room for Simon on the 40-man roster.

Simon returned to the United States on Monday night after attending a legal hearing in the Dominican Republic. Simon, the lead suspect in the fatal shooting of his cousin Jan. 1, had the hearing suspended when prosecution witnesses did not show.

Simon is expected to start Friday’s game against the Los Angeles Angels.

Bell was recalled from Norfolk on Monday and hit a single against Boston.
