The Baltimore Orioles have activated Ryan Webb off the 25-man roster and activated Andrew Miller. Miller was acquired yesterday from the Boston Red Sox.
Webb signed a decent two-year contract this offseason with the Orioles and I am sure they want to hold onto him. Webb has pitched well with a 3.80 era and a three and two record.
Here is the Orioles press release.
