The Orioles have designated Brad Bergesen for assignment, according to a source. The move has not been made official, but the club needs to make a move by tonight because infielder/outfielder Bill Hall has been called up from Triple-A Norfolk. The 26-year-old Bergesen, a former fourth-rounder in 2004 by the Orioles, is 17-24 with a 4.68 ERA in 83 games, 59 starts, for the Orioles in his career. He did not make the team out of spring and has been in Norfolk, where he is 1-2 with a 5.13 ERA in eight games (six starts)

Today is arbitration exchange day in Major League Baseball. By late this afternoon we will know what agent Scott Boras believes catcher Matt Wieters and first baseman Chris Davis should earn in 2014. And we'll know what the Orioles think, too. Wieters made $5.5 million last year and Davis made $3.3 million. Here's a prediction: they are both going to get handsome raises in 2014, no matter if they settle or if they end up in an arbitration hearing next month. Wieters and Davis are two of five current Orioles who are eligible for arbitration.

After seeing their bullpen carry an extended load in four games since the All-Star break, the Orioles have purchase the contract of right-handed reliever Brad Bergesen to help aid a taxed relief corps.  At Triple-A Norfolk, the 26-year-old Bergesen was 4-3 with a 4.03 ERA in 22 games (10 starts). Over 80 1/3 innings, he allowed 90 hits, 42 runs, 36 earned runs with 41 strikeouts and 23 walks. Over his last 10 outings, he's pitched to a 2.35 ERA. He last pitched two innings on Saturday for the Tides.

The Orioles lone arbitration case has them more than $2 million apart. Catcher Matt Wieters, represented by agent Scott Boras, has filed for a 2014 salary worth $8.75 million, while the Orioles filed at $6.5 million. The club settled with the rest of their arbitration-eligible players on Friday. The 27-year-old Wieters made $5.5 million in 2013, when he hit .235 with a .287 on-base percentage and had 22 homers and 79 RBIs in 148 games. He was a finalist for a Gold Glove, but did not win. The Orioles can continue to negotiate with Wieters up until hearings begin at some point next month.

The Orioles have decided to non-tender Jo-Jo Reyes, allowing him to become a free agent. Reyes was snagged off the waiver wire from the Toronto Blue Jays at midseason and posted a 6.16 ERA for the Orioles in nine games (five starts). With the acquisition of Dana Eveland last week, and the Orioles' interest in other starting pitchers in the market, Reyes, 27, became expendable. The Orioles also have non-tendered Luke Scott, though they hope to bring him back at a salary lesser than the $6.4 million he made in 2011.

Base-running blunders and a lack of timely hitting hurt the Orioles, who wasted a solid start by Brad Bergesen. Box score, PG 4.

THAT WAS FAST Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis was just 7-for-30 lifetime heading into Friday's game against Toronto ace Roy Halladay, so it figured that his hitting streak could be in jeopardy. Markakis wasted no time disproving that theory. In the first inning, Markakis went down and drove Halladay's breaking ball into the right-field seats, his third homer of the year extending his hitting streak to a career-high-tying 17 games. NO RETRIBUTION The Orioles hit three batters, though the Blue Jays didn't retaliate.

 The Orioles have reduced their number of arbitration eligible players to five, agreeing on Thursday with right-hander Bud Norris to a 2014 contract valued at $5.3 million, according to an industry source.  Norris, 28, made $3 million last year when he went 10-12 with a 4.18 ERA in 32 games with the Orioles and Houston Astros. Traded by the Astros for outfielder L.J. Hoes and minor leaguer pitcher Josh Hader on July 31, Norris was 4-3 with a 4.80 ERA in 11 games (nine starts) for the Orioles.

The evolution of Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman continued Friday night with an outing that was reminiscent of an experienced veteran and not a guy who was in the minors a year ago wondering about his future in the organization. In the Orioles' 2-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox in front of a nearly packed house on a picture-perfect baseball evening at Camden Yards, Tillman did what good pitchers are supposed to do. He won without having particularly strong command, walking four to tie his season high set in the first game of the year.

The Orioles and their three remaining arbitration-eligible players have officially filed salary numbers for 2013. Closer Jim Johnson, who led the majors in saves with 51, asked for $7.1 million while the Orioles countered with $5.7 million. He is in his third year of arbitration and made $2.625 million last year. Starter Jason Hammel, who was 8-6 with a 3.43 ERA in 20 starts for the Orioles last year, asked for $8.25 million and the Orioles countered with $5.7 million. He is in his fourth year of arbitration and made $4.75 million last year.

It's a pretty good time to be a Baltimore sports fan. This is the first time since the Ravens came into existence in 1996 that both the Orioles and Ravens had season records above .500 in the same calendar year. Both the Orioles and the Ravens made the playoffs in 2012 - something that hasn't happened to Charm City's NFL and MLB teams since 1971 (Orioles lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates in the World Series in seven games and the Baltimore Colts lost to the Miami Dolphins 21-0 in the AFC title game)

Now that the Orioles have declined the $11 million option for next year on Mark Reynolds, the club has two options to try to keep the 29-year-old first baseman. Since Reynolds has one year of arbitration eligibility remaining, the Orioles could tender a contract to Reynolds and hope to sign him for less through the arbitration process. Reynolds made $7.5 million last season, and it's very rare to see players take a pay cut going through arbitration. So even though Reynolds had a down year offensively, he would still figure to make in the $9 million range through the arbitration process.

CLEVELAND - The Orioles may have found a defensive stopgap for second base Friday, and they officially cut ties with a pitcher once expected to be part of the franchise's future. It wasn't exactly a pre-trade deadline blockbuster, but the Orioles sent cash to the New York Mets on Friday for 30-year-old infielder Omar Quintanilla , who was designated for assignment earlier this week. The Orioles had an opening on their 40-man roster after designating right-hander Brad Bergesen on Wednesday.
