The Orioles have demoted 24-year old righty starter Brad Bergeson to AAA and he certainly deserved to go. Bergeson has started 3 games this season for the Orioles and he is 0-2 with a 12.19 ERA and a 2.61 WHIP. He gave up 21 hits (4 homers) and he walked 6 batters in only 10 1/3 innings for the O’s which is stunning. 26-year old righty Jason Berken will likely come out of the pen to replace Bergeson in the starting rotation. Berken has pitched in 4 games (0 starts) for the O’s so far this season and he is 0-0 with a 1.50 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP. He has only given up 9 hits while walking 2 batters in 12 innings pitched. Berken struggled last season as a starter in his rookie season for the O’s who hope that he has learned from his mistakes.
