Orioles off, but Bergy will pitch

The Orioles will watch Brad Bergesen’s outing in Triple-A Norfolk very closely on Monday, as a solid performance will most likely result in Bergesen making Saturday’s start against the Nationals. To clarify on a few emails I got, Stephen Stasburg will not pitch in that series against the Os this weekend.

It’s likely Chris Tillman won’t either, but it’s still an option. If the O’s elect to go with Bergesen there will likely be a roster move on Tuesday. since they don’t want Tillman sitting in the ‘pen. They will want to get him a start at Norfolk and perhaps call up an extra arm for a few days before naming Saturday’s starer.

I know Mark Hendrickson was a possibility for Saturday’s start, but he hasn’t looked that great in his last few outings. Jason Berken has done so well in the ‘pen, I’d have to think they’d be hesitant to call on him for a spot start.

Stay tuned.

Not sure that bringng Bergy back so quick is a good move. Why would it matter if Hendrickson spot starts? He can’t be any worse than Tillman or Arrieta were in their last starts.
