Brad Bergesen will work on short rest tonight when he takes the mound for Triple-A Norfolk’s game against Lehigh Valley.
Bergesen started Thursday night against Toledo, but lasted only 2 2/3 innings. He was removed after 65 pitches and three runs, allowing him to come back tonight.
The Orioles need a starter Saturday night against the Nationals, so Bergesen is lined up to make his return to Camden Yards. But it won’t happen if he’s shelled tonight.
Trust me, you don’t want to be shelled by an IronPig.
Pie update: Felix Pie is batting third and serving as the designated hitter today for the Gulf Coast Orioles. He grounded to second base in his first at-bat.
