Bergesen to start Tuesday

via www.baltimoresun.com

From Jeff Zrebiec:

The Orioles are planning to recall Brad Bergesen to start Tuesday's series opener against the Chicago White Sox at Camden Yards.

The club, which also considered recalling Triple-A left-hander Chris Waters, will likely hold off on making the announcement until Monday, when it will also have to make a roster move to accommodate Bergesen. However, multiple team sources confirmed that the plan is to give Bergesen an extended look in the rotation in place of injured right-hander Alfredo Simon, who is out at least a month, if not much longer, with elbow problems.

It will be the major league debut for Bergesen, a 23-year-old right-hander who was the organization's Minor League Pitcher of the Year last season.

So for all those hoping to see Bergesen sooner than later, here's his chance. But please do yourself a favor and don't get carried away. He's an extreme control specialist and most of these guys (Josh Towers was one, too) have some (or a lot of) trouble in the majors.

But I'm happy he's getting the chance. I don't really have anything against Chris Waters (I'll take Waters over Eaton), but Bergesen had a great 2008 at Bowie and a nice spring, and he's earned the look. Do it to it, Brad.
