NEW YORK - The Orioles designated Edwin Jackson for assignment today and optioned Stefan Crichton to Triple-A Norfolk as part of their latest bullpen maneuvering.

Jackson said he’s going to stay in Baltimore for a few days and see what happens. He isn’t sure whether he’ll accept an outright assignment if he clears waivers.

Closer Zach Britton is scheduled to pitch for the first time on June 19 at short-season Single-A Aberdeen.

Third baseman Manny Machado remains out of the lineup, but he’s going to attempt to hit and throw this morning.
