Red Sox acquired RHP Randor Bierd from the Orioles in exchange for RHP David Pauley.
Bierd, a Rule 5 draft pick from the Tigers last year, had a promising start to the season before coming down with a sore shoulder. He could emerge as a late-inning reliever down the road if he's fully recovered. Mon, Jan 19, 2009 02:30:00 PM

Orioles sent RHP Randor Bierd, RHP Rocky Cherry, INF Brandon Fahey, OF Jeff Fiorentino and C Omir Santos outright to Triple-A Norfolk.

Bierd, a Rule 5 pick from the Tigers, got off to a nice start, posting a 2.03 ERA over the first month before going on the DL with a sore shoulder. He didn't return until after the break, and he had a 6.56 ERA in 23 1/3 innings the rest of the way. We're still somewhat surprised that he cleared waivers.

Orioles activated RHP Randor Bierd from the 15-day disabled list.

Orioles placed RHP Randor Bierd on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 30, with a right shoulder impingement.

Bierd, who the Orioles got in the Rule 5 draft from the Tigers, is 0-1 with a 2.03 ERA and expects to return in mid-June. He allowed a two-run home run to B.J. Upton on Tuesday, and reported feeling soreness afterwards. An MRI revealed some tendinitis.

Orioles manager Dave Trembley announced Friday night that Randor Bierd has won a spot in the bullpen.

Bierd, a Rule-5 pick from the Tigers, had a 2.38 ERA in 10 appearances this spring. Trembley also announced that Dennis Sarfate, Greg Aquino and Matt Albers will be in the Orioles bullpen.

Rule-5 pick Randor Bierd pitched two scoreless innings and struck out three Thursday against the Twins.

Bierd has pitched 5 1/3 scoreless innings this month after giving up two runs in his first appearance of the spring. It looks like he's going to win a spot on the Orioles as a middle reliever.

Orioles selected RHP Randor Bierd from the Tigers with the third pick in the Rule 5 draft.

One of the better bets to stick, Bierd, 23, made a successful jump from low-A ball to Double-A last season, posting a 3.35 ERA and a 52/10 K/BB ratio in 45 2/3 IP with Erie. He doesn't have closer-type upside, but he could be adequate in middle relief right away.
