Orioles recall RHP Tommy Hunter from Norfolk

From the good folks at the Baltimore Orioles. Looks like Tommy Hunter is being brought up. Jake Arrieta – as I incorrectly said based on what I’ve heard (and assumed) – is staying with the Orioles; however, he will be used out of the bullpen for now.

Miguel Gonzalez was sent back to Norfolk despite being very productive in relief. I guess it was a numbers game in Gonzalez’s case, but he may be back sooner rather than later if the Orioles have needs.
