It is September and that means callups and roster expansion.

The Baltimore Orioles recalled reliever Evan Meek and starting pitcher Joe Saunders on Monday.

Meek has struggled during his 15 appearances this season posting a 7.47 ERA. He figures to be used simply as a relief pitcher in games that are out of hand.

Saunders will be used in a similar role. Expect the 33-year-old to be used as a long reliever. In eight starts this season for Texas, Saunders has a brutal 6.13 ERA and a 2.07 WHIP to go with a 0-5 record.
