ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -The Baltimore Orioles purchased the contract of pitcher Rob Bell from Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday.
Bell, designated for assignment last Thursday by the Orioles, cleared waivers and was sent outright to Norfolk on Tuesday. The right-hander was 3-3 with a 6.49 ERA in 21 games with Baltimore earlier this season.
Baltimore also gave right-hander Paul Shuey his outright release after he cleared waivers. Shuey was designated for assignment on Aug. 28, which ended his comeback with the Orioles.
Shuey, signed to a minor league contract as a free agent in February, made it back to the majors for the first time since 2004 after undergoing hip surgery. He was 0-1 with one save and a 9.82 ERA in 25 games.
To make room on the 40-man roster for Bell, pitcher Sendy Rleal was designated for assignment.
