O's option reliever Socolovich to Triple-A
BALTIMORE -- The Orioles optioned right-handed reliever Miguel Socolovich to Triple-A Norfolk after Sunday's game.

Socolovich, who has pitched to a 6.97 ERA in 10 1/3 innings across three stints with the O's, was recalled on Wednesday to provide an extra arm for a bullpen that pitched nine innings in Tuesday's 14-inning marathon.

Manager Buck Showalter said on Wednesday that Socolovich's status with the O's would be reassessed on a "day to day" basis.

The righty allowed only one hit in two shutout innings against Seattle on Wednesday before surrendering one run -- an Alex Gordon solo homer -- on two hits against the Royals on Saturday.

Socolovich is 4-0 with a 1.90 ERA in 52 innings for Norfolk this season.

A corresponding roster move has not yet been announced.
