CHICAGO -- The Orioles officially recalled Miguel Gonzalez from the Minor Leagues prior to Sunday's start against the Cubs, designating infielder Cord Phelps for assignment to clear a spot on the active roster.

Phelps was hitless in three at-bats for the Orioles this season, and the move leaves the O's with a short bench for the next week until September's roster expansion.

Leading up to Sunday's start, Gonzalez pitched to a 3.80 ERA in 20 games (19 starts) for the Orioles and was re-added to the rotation with struggling righty Ubaldo Jimenez moved to the bullpen last week.
