Update: Although the Orioles haven't announced a roster move yet, a locker is being set up for Jair Jurrjens. Jurrjens will be used as a long reliever.

Update II: Travis Ishikawa is no longer listed as a reserve, but he is still in the clubhouse. It is unclear if Ishikawa was designated for assignment or if the Orioles have traded him.

Update III: Ishikawa just confirmed that he has been designated for assignment. The Orioles had been hoping to work out a trade, and perhaps still can, but the team needed a roster spot for Jurrjens.
