Though manager Juan Samuel announced that Jake Arrieta was headed up from Norfolk to make tonight's start against the Yankees, the official roster addition and deletion will be made tomorrow. The Orioles will have to make room on the 40-man roster to accommodate him.

It shouldn't be too hard to figure out who will be moved off the 25-man roster. Samuel indicated on Tuesday that the Orioles were considering moving Will Ohman back into his normal left-handed specialist role, which would figure to make left-hander Alberto Castillo the most logical candidate to step aside. He has not been effective, giving up five homers and 12 earned runs in 10 2/3 innings (10.12 ERA).

There was some room to wonder whether the O's might option Brad Bergesen back to Triple-A Norfolk, but a source told me earlier tonight that Bergesen probably would stay and pitch out of the bullpen.
