The Orioles placed veteran infielder Cesar Izturis (strained left groin) on the 15-day disabled list and recalled reliever Jason Berken from Triple-A Norfolk.
Izturis was just activated from the disabled list last Friday after spending nearly three months on the DL following right elbow surgery. He was playing in his second game Sunday when he strained his groin while running out a groundball.
Berken is 1-2 with a 6.27 ERA in 31 appearances for the Orioles this season. In five games (four starts) with Triple-A Norfolk, he's 0-1 with a 3.50 ERA.
