O's go to journeyman Waters
(8/5/2008) According to The Sports Xchange notes: The Orioles were busy Monday night -- but more so in the transaction column than on the field. The team recalled left-hander Chris Waters from Triple-A Norfolk to make Tuesday's start. The 27-year-old is 3-6 with a 5.70 ERA in 18 games with the Tides. The former Braves fifth-round pick began the year 5-0 with a 1.69 ERA in six games at Double-A Bowie. With the way right-hander Dennis Sarfate threw Monday, the club might be looking for another starting option. Sarfate went just three innings, allowing five runs on six hits and three walks. Right-handers Hayden Penn, Brad Bergesen and Chris Tillman are each deserving of a call-up, but each has his reservations. Penn was struck with a splintered bat in a recent start at Norfolk, and Bergesen and Tillman would be viewed as "rushed" to the majors from Bowie.
