Phelps designated for assignment to clear roster spot for Gonzalez

CHICAGO - Miguel Gonzalez has officially rejoined the Orioles after being recalled from Double-A Bowie this afternoon to start against the Cubs.

To clear a spot on the 25-man roster for Gonzalez, infielder Cord Phelps has been designated for assignment. Phelps was hitless in three at-bats for the Orioles.

With only a week left before Sept. 1 roster expansion, the Orioles will go with three reserves and only one backup infielder, Ryan Flaherty.
