Kevin Gregg has had a resurgence of sorts after a slow start this season and a rough year in 2012. He had strung together seven scoreless outings totaling 9 1/3 innings pitched. That all came to a halt in the seventh inning Monday. Entering in relief of Tommy Hunter (6 IP, 9 hits, 5 earned runs), Gregg allowed a one-out single, double and then intentionally walked David Ortiz. Adrian Gonzalez broke the 5-5 tie with a sacrifice fly and Will Middlebrooks added a RBI single to give the Red Sox a two-run lead.

Kevin Gregg, the hulking, bespectacled reliever who endeared himself to teammates for his brotherly advice and refusal to back down to the opposition - but drew the ire of fans for his ineffectiveness as a well-paid closer - was designated for assignment on Tuesday. The Orioles have 10 days to trade, release or ask waivers on the 34-year-old right-hander, who was 3-2 with a 4.74 ERA in 40 games this season. "We're trying to see if we can put him in a place where he can get the ball on a consistent basis and present himself as a good option," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

You may want to turn away, Kevin Gregg haters. At least for now. Because the big guy in the goofy goggles has been pretty impressive lately. Up until the past few days, the haters could dismiss it by saying his meaningful appearances have been exceptionally limited. But the Orioles' former/deposed closer has entered his past two outings in the extra innings of tied games. He has held the opponent scoreless and ended up with the win. Gregg, who was booed on Opening Day at Camden Yards, didn't make things better when he allowed five earned runs in his first 3 2/3 innings this season.

Orioles closer Kevin Gregg pitched a perfect ninth inning in Wednesday’s 3-2 win over the Athletics, giving the team its first home sweep of the Athletics in more than a decade. It was a rare uneventful night for Gregg, whose propensity to allow baserunners in save situations often leaves fans chugging Alka-Seltzer. His late-night appearances usually aren’t heartburn-free, but he has been getting the job done the past three weeks. Gregg, who was signed to a two-year deal in the offseason, has converted his last five save opportunities and he hasn’t allowed a run in seven straight appearances.

Kevin Gregg, whom the Orioles designated for assignment on Tuesday , said he's “really disappointed” that he will not be able to make a final postseason push with the Orioles this season. But he also felt like he couldn't thrive in a situation where he wasn't pitching much. And when he wasn't pitching much, he wasn't effective, giving him fewer chances to pitch.   Here are some quotes Gregg told The Sun moments ago: Gregg on being designated for assignment: “To be honest, I wasn't surprised.

The boos that Orioles reliever Kevin Gregg received when he was introduced Sunday afternoon at the Rogers Centre actually seemed to be a decibel level higher than the ones he received from Orioles fans on Opening Day. Gregg, who saved a career-high 37 games with the Jays in 2010, obviously didn't leave a favorable impression. But after Gregg's outing north of the border in the Orioles' 9-2 loss to the Jays, you could hear the boos all the way from Baltimore. Gregg allowed five runs to be scored while he was on the mound during a seven-run sixth inning Sunday.

Right-hander Kevin Gregg took his place in the parade of major league pitchers who worked in Sunday's "B" game, but didn't take it personally. The Orioles have to schedule extra spring games to get enough innings for all the pitchers in camp, and it wasn't like Gregg was being relegated to a lower class of competition. He pitched between possible No. 1 starter Tommy Hunter, who apparently has won his bout with lower back soreness, and left-hander Zach Britton, who was testing his injured shoulder for the first time in a game.

The Orioles have made two roster moves today, selecting the contracts of outfielders Endy Chavez and L.J. Hoes  from Triple-A Norfolk. To make room on the 40-man roster, they have designated right-hander Kevin Gregg and infielder Ryan Adams for assignment.       Gregg's departure came as a shock to the other pitchers on the staff , and the reliever said he was "really disappointed" to be leaving the O's in the middle of a playoff push. Gregg went 3-2 with a 4.74 ERA in 40 appearances for the Orioles this season.

**The most impressive thing about 22-year-old outfielder Xavier Avery is the maturity and patience at the plate he has exhibited. It's something I didn't expect when he was recalled last week. The perfect case in point was in the third inning Monday. He came up with the bases loaded in a 2-0 game - and most rookies would have been feeling the heat in that situation. But Avery didn't try to do too much. He took a called strike from Clay Buchholz, and then fouled one off. So the kid was down 0-2. He ended up working a nine-pitch walk that scored the Orioles' first run. Ten-year veterans sometimes get too anxious in an at-bat like that.

The last time the Orioles met the Red Sox, they played baseball's version of the Boston Marathon - a 17-inning game at Fenway Park that completed Baltimore's first sweep of Boston since 1994. And the last time the Red Sox came to Camden Yards, they left with their season shattered, sending them prematurely into an offseason of upheaval. Its pretty clear that the Orioles have had the Red Sox's number of late, beating Boston in seven of their last eight entering Monday. But these Red Sox arrived at Camden Yards surging, winners of eight of their last 10 games as they try to work their way out of the early-season American League East cellar.

After four weeks of negotiations, the Orioles reached an agreement Tuesday on a two-year, $10 million deal with veteran reliever Kevin Gregg, a move that further solidifies the back end of their bullpen and likely marks their last significant addition in a busy offseason. Gregg's deal, which is pending a physical, also includes a club option for 2013 that will vest if the reliever finishes a certain number of games during the 2012 season. Gregg saved 37 games with the Toronto Blue Jays this past season and has recorded 121saves over the past four years.

SEATTLE -- For one day, the outlook was bright again. Rodrigo Lopez was back to pitching like a No. 1 starter, Brian Roberts was in the lineup and scoring runs and the Orioles, admonished by their manager for a lack of effort a night earlier, were feeling pretty good about themselves again. Perhaps, Lopez spoke for his entire team when he said, "I am smiling after a game. Finally."
