The Orioles have placed right-hander Miguel Gonzalez on the 15-day disabled list with a blister on his right thumb and called up right-hander Alex Burnett from Triple-A Norfolk to take his roster spot.
Burnett has been working as a reliever at Norfolk, so it’s likely he won’t be Gonzalez’s replacement for Saturday’s start. The Orioles can make another roster move before Saturday’s game or start relievers Tommy Hunter or T.J. McFarland if they’re available to start.
The move to place Gonzalez on the DL is retroactive to May 4, so he would be able to return on May 18.
The Orioles were planning to make a decision on Gonzalez today following his bullpen session.
