The Orioles have bumped 27-year old lefty Brian Burres to the bullpen. Burres has pitched in 21 games (19 starts) this season for the Orioles and he is 7-7 with a 5.37 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP. He will likely be the long man in the bullpen unless George Sherrill or Jamie Walker are traded before Thursday. 27-year old righty Dennis Sarfate will replace Burres in the rotation and he should fit right in with the other Orioles’ starting pitchers as he doesn’t like to throw strikes. Sarfate has walked a stunning 39 batters in only 50 innings for the Orioles this season. He does have good stuff as he has only allowed 35 hits and has whiffed 52 batters in 50 innings pitched. He has pitched in 45 games (0 starts) for the Orioles this season and he is 4-1 with a 3.78 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP. This is probably not a good idea for the Orioles as Sarfate will take a while to get stretched out enough to give them 5 innings which will tax the bullpen.
