Gonzalez reinstated from disabled list, Jurrjens optioned

Miguel Gonzalez is back from the disabled list, and Jair Jurrjens is one and done - for now.

The Orioles announced this afternoon that they have reinstated Gonzalez, who had been dealing with a blister on his right thumb, from the 15-day DL. To clear a spot on the 25-man roster, Jurrjens was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk.

Gonzalez will start tonight against the Yankees, against whom he is 2-1 with a 2.75 ERA in three regular season starts. Jurrjens pitched Saturday, starting against the Rays in a no-decision.

Jurrjens, signed to a minor league contract in spring training, was 4-1 with a 3.14 ERA in eight starts with the Tides before being recalled. He has a June 15 opt-out clause, but the Orioles have been impressed with his progress and hope to keep him in the organization.
