SAN DIEGO (AP) -The Baltimore Orioles purchased the contracts of right-handed pitchers Rob Bell and Paul Shuey on Tuesday from Triple-A Norfolk.
The Orioles optioned right-handed pitchers Jim Hoey and Cory Doyne to Norfolk to make room on the roster.
Bell missed the first month of the season with an infection on his right finger. He was 4-3 with a 2.97 ERA in 10 starts for Norfolk. Shuey, who has pitched in parts of 10 major league seasons, had been on the disabled list with a strained right hamstring. The righty has one save with an ERA of 4.70 in 21 relief appearances for Norfolk.
Hoey and Doyne were added to the Baltimore roster prior to Saturday night's game against Arizona and each appeared in the game.
To make room on the 40-man roster for Bell and Shuey, the Orioles transferred right-handers Jaret Wright and Jon Leicester from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day DL.
