Brad Bergesen, Orioles go to hearing

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Right-hander Brad Bergesen and the Baltimore Orioles have argued their cases in salary arbitration.

Bergesen asked for a raise from $434,000 to $1.2 million during Wednesday's hearing, and the Orioles argued he should be paid $800,000.

A decision by arbitrators Robert Herzog, Mark Burstein and Elizabeth Neumeier is expected Thursday.

Bergesen was 2-7 with a 5.70 ERA in 12 starts and 22 relief appearances last season.

Orioles outfielder Adam Jones remains in arbitration.
