Baltimore Orioles Notes, Quotes 2009-04-21
--RHP Brad Bergesen will be recalled to make Tuesday's start against the White Sox, according to the Baltimore Sun. Bergesen, 23, gets the nod over Class-AAA Norfolk teammate Chris Waters after opening the season 1-1 with a 2.45 ERA with nine strikeouts against three walks in 11 innings.

--RHP Radhames Liz was rocked in what could be his last outing with the club for some time. The former prospect allowed six runs on three hits and one walk in one-third of an inning, watching his ERA explode to 67.50. Liz, 25, was then demoted in favor of a yet-to-be-named starter -- believed to be prospect RHP Brad Bergesen -- for Tuesday's series opener with the White Sox.

BY THE NUMBERS: 14 -- Players who have played in 1,000 games in an Orioles uniform. 2B Brian Roberts will become No. 15 when he reaches the milestone. He entered the week needing 12 more appearances.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I know it's a very historic venue. The Green Monster itself is really famous in Japan, but obviously I've only seen it on television. ... Maybe (David) Ortiz is bigger." -- RHP Koji Uehara, via interpreter Jiwon Bang, on his first impressions of Fenway Park.
