Baltimore • The Baltimore Orioles have placed right-hander Miguel Gonzalez on the 15-day disabled list with a right thumb blister.
Gonzalez is 2-2 with a 4.58 ERA in six starts this season. He left his last start on May 3 against the Angels after six innings because of a blister.
The Orioles pushed Gonzalez back from his scheduled start Thursday, hoping he would be ready Saturday. But the blister evidently hasn't healed enough to allow him to pitch.
To fill out the 25-man roster, Baltimore recalled right-hander Alex Burnett from Triple-A Norfolk. Burnett was claimed by the Orioles on waivers from Toronto on April 12.
Burnett went 1-0 with a 0.96 ERA in six relief appearances with Norfolk. He was 4-4 out of the bullpen last year with Minnesota.
