For the first time since Buck Showalter has taken over, the Orioles have some bad news. Reliever Jason Berken is likely to miss the rest of the season with a tear in his right labrum and rotator cuff inflammation.

It's not all bad in Oriole-land, though -- Berken tells the Baltimore Sun 's Jeff Zrebiec that he's been told he doesn't need surgery.

"There's some time now for some good rest, I'll be shut down for a little while," Berken said. "If that calms everything down, at some point, I'll star the rehab process."

The Orioles put him on the disabled list and called up Rick VandenHurk.

Berken is 3-3 with a 3.03 ERA in his first year as a reliever. Berken has struck out 45 batters in 62 1/3 innings.
