 BALTIMORE (AP) -The Orioles optioned Garrett Olson to Bluefield, the team's rookie level club, and recalled right-hander Jim Johnson from Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday.
The move was designed to fortify a bullpen depleted by Wednesday's doubleheader against Texas, which included a 30-3 loss in the opener when long relievers Brian Burres and Rob Bell both received extensive action.
``Really what we needed was to open up a spot so we could bring Johnson up,'' Trembley said. ``Everybody saw what happened yesterday, and our bullpen's somewhat short. So we brought up Johnson as a long guy, and we moved (Olson) to Bluefield, which gives us some flexibility.''
Olson, the starter in Wednesday's second game, is 1-2 with a 7.33 ERA. By sending him to Bluefield, the Orioles can get him back quicker than if he went to Norfolk.
``Normally when you send somebody down, you have to wait 10 days for them to come back unless there's an injury. The other criteria is, when you send someone down, you have to wait 10 days or until that season is over,'' Trembley explained. ``That season in Bluefield is over before the 10 days if he were to go to Norfolk.''
Johnson made one appearance for the Orioles earlier this year, allowing two earned runs in two innings against Boston on April 25. He went 5-11 with a 3.99 ERA with 100 strikeouts in 24 games for Norfolk.
