Orioles get closer back

Posted on: June 13, 2010 7:26 pm

The Orioles activated closer Alfredo Simon following Sunday's loss to the Mets, the Baltimore Sun reports . The Orioles sent right-hander Brad Bergesen back to Triple-A Norfolk, where he will rejoin the rotation after spending time in the Orioles' bullpen.

Simon has been on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring since May 25. Simon has six saves in seven opportunities, going 1-1 with a 2.92 ERA.

"I try to come back to the same thing I was doing before. It feels really good right now," Simon told the Sun. "When I try to run hard, I feel a little bit [in the hamstring], but when I am throwing, not at all."

Orioles interim manager Juan Samuel told the paper Simon probably wouldn't pitch Monday against the Giants, leaving David Hernandez as the team's closer for one more game.
