Orioles @ Twins

*Brad Bergesen was designated for assignment to make room for tonight’s pitcher, Tommy Hunter. Bergesen has his contract purchased yesterday and did not pitch. He is on outright waivers and –assuming he clears — he will be optioned to Triple-A Norfolk. The Orioles chose to take him off the 40-man rather than just option him, which is why Bergesen was designated for assignment. The team’s 40-man roster is now at 39.

*The Orioles were awarded the fourth pick in the Competitive Balance Draft Lottery, which took place today. More on that here.

*In case you missed it, Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette said despite the team’s recent struggles he still expects the organization to be a buyer over the next few weeks leading up to the trade deadline. More on that here.
