Analysis: With right-hander Miguel Gonzalez expected to be recalled soon after throwing a 75-pitch simulated game Monday for Double-A Bowie, the Orioles needed to clear a spot in the rotation for his impending return from the minor leagues.

He's 4-9 with a 4.83 ERA and has walked 66 batters, tops in the American League.
