Callups - Stern and Knott

No J.R. House?  Well, I guess he's not as good with the glove as the O's are looking for...pinch hitter?  No.

According to Roch: "It sounds like the Orioles will bring up outfielders Adam Stern and Jon Knott from the minors to replace Kurt Birkins and Corey Patterson on the roster."

Bynum is going to start in center most of the time with Stern coming in late. Sure...

UPDATE: (zknower)

Per the Sun, both Stern and Knott have been called up.

Outfielders Adam Stern and Jon Knott have been brought up from Triple-A Norfolk and will join the team in St. Petersburg, Fla., as the Orioles return to a 12-man pitching staff. They optioned reliever Kurt Birkins to Norfolk and placed center fielder Corey Patterson on bereavement leave after the recent death of his grandfather.

... Stern has recovered from an arm injury that kept him at extended spring training in Sarasota, Fla. The Orioles needed another center fielder besides Freddie Bynum and weren't sold on Ruddy Yan, who began today batting .115 with the Tides.

... Knott, a corner outfielder who's batting .222 with two homers and four RBIs in eight games at Norfolk, signed as a minor league free agent after leading all minor league players with 113 RBIs at Triple-A Portland, a San Diego Padres affiliate. He has appeared in 12 major league games, including three last September, and also can play first base.

The Orioles also considered catcher/corner infielder J.R. House, who began today hitting .367 with two doubles, two homers and 10 RBIs, but they focused on outfielders while waiting for Patterson and Jay Payton to return. Payton remains on the disabled list with a hamstring injury and might not be activated until the next homestand, which starts Friday.

... Another roster move is coming. Catcher Ramon Hernandez, also in Sarasota rehabbing a strained oblique muscle, will meet up with the team Tuesday and take batting practice. He could be activated during the series, which would bump backup catcher Alberto Castillo from the roster.
