BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Orioles have reinstated right-hander Alfredo Simon from the restricted list.

Simon has been charged with involuntary manslaughter in his native Dominican Republic. No trial date has been set.

He had to be activated by Sunday from the restricted list, but the Orioles made the move early after playing a 15-inning game on Wednesday and losing 17-5 to the Nationals on Friday night.

Simon takes the roster spot of Jason Berken, who was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk after Friday's loss. Baltimore also transferred infielder Cesar Izturis to the 60-day disabled list Saturday.

Simon will work out of the bullpen. He was 4-2 with 17 saves and a 4.93 ERA in 49 games for the Orioles last season.
