The Baltimore Orioles have designated right-hander Jason Berken for assignment, reports Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun:

Berken was designated to make room for left-hander Zach Phillips on the Orioles’ forty-man roster.

Berken appeared in one game this season for Baltimore, surrendering seven runs, two earned, on six hits and one walk in an inning of work against the Texas Rangers in early May. The 28-year-old started twenty-six games this season for the Orioles’ Triple-A affiliate, maintaining an ERA of 3.50 with 6.1 SO/9 and 2.4 BB/9.

Berken was an effective option out of Baltimore’s bullpen in 2010, posting an ERA of 3.03 over forty-one appearances spanning sixty-two and one-third innings. He owns a career 5.40 ERA over parts of four seasons at the major league level.

Phillips, 25, has appeared in eleven games for the O’s over the past two seasons, maintaining an ERA of 3.12. He posted a mark of 4.01 over eight seasons in the minors.
