BALTIMORE -- A day after starter Chris Tillman failed to record an out in the second inning, the Orioles made several roster moves to replenish their bullpen and fill in for an injured Miguel Gonzalez.
Gonzalez, who had been dealing with oblique soreness, was placed on the 15-day disabled list. The move was backdated to May 31.
Kevin Gausman arrived in Baltimore Friday but was not activated. He will start Saturday's game against Oakland.
In Gausman's previous stint with the Orioles this season, he gave up five runs on six hits in four innings and taking the loss against Detroit on May 14.
Because Baltimore had to use five relievers, it needed some fresh arms for Friday's game. Therefore, Tim Berry was called up from Class-AA Bowie, Evan Meek was recalled from Class-AAA Norfolk, and Preston Guilmet was sent down to Norfolk.
Berry, a 23-year-old left-handed starter, is 3-3 with a 4.12 ERA in 11 starts for the Baysox this year after a stellar season at High Class-A Frederick last year. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the plan was for Berry to return to Bowie after being available in the bullpen Friday night.
Meek is 0-1 with a 6.94 ERA in 12 relief appearances this season. He made the Opening Day roster, but hadn't pitched in Baltimore since May 1.
Guilmet was 0-1 with a 5.79 ERA in nine appearances. He excelled in his first five outings, but had given up at least a run in each of his last four appearances.
To make room for Meek on the 40-man roster, the Orioles transferred Rule 5 draft pick infielder Michael Almanzar to the 60-day disabled list.
