Tampa Bay Rays (3) at Baltimore Orioles (5) - May 12, 2012 | MLB.com BAL Recap
"Orioles third baseman Steve Tolleson picked a critical time to pick up his first RBI of the season with a second-inning double and Bill Hall added a homer in the eighth after being called up from Triple-A Norfolk earlier in the day. With the victory, the Orioles remain in first place in the American League East, two games ahead of the Rays."

Steve Melewski: Xavier Avery is headed to Baltimore to join the Orioles
"After he had hit .259 with 156 strikeouts last year with Double-A Bowie, there was some talk that outfield prospect Xavier Avery would have to go back to Double-A for the 2012 season. But the Orioles instead sent him to Triple-A Norfolk, where he has been hitting well, and tonight, after just 33 games with the Tides, Avery is getting on a plane in Indianapolis and will fly to Baltimore. He is expected to be activated by the Orioles in time for Sunday's game."

Orioles have designated Brad Bergesen for assignment - baltimoresun.com
"The Orioles have designated Brad Bergesen for assignment, according to a source." The move still hasn't been officially announced. and Mark Reynolds' move to the 15-day DL didn't necessitate its completion last night. But somewhere around 12:30 p.m. today, expect to see this become reality. EDIT: Bergesen was DFA'd last night to make room on the 40-man roster.
