The SportsXchange

The Orioles selected the contract of left-handed pitcher J.C. Romero, who was acquired on Monday from Cleveland.

Romero's only major-league action this season came with the St. Louis Cardinals, and he was 0-0 with a 10.13 ERA for the Cards.

The Orioles also recalled right-handed pitcher Steve Johnson from Triple-A Norfolk and placed left-handed pitcher Troy Patton on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 13, with a right ankle sprain.

Right-handed pitcher Miguel Socolovich has been designated for assignment.
