Orioles' Louis Head: Claimed by Orioles
The Orioles claimed Head (shoulder) off waivers from the Marlins on Tuesday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
Currently on the injured list rehabbing from a shoulder injury, Head threw a scoreless inning with two strikeouts Saturday in the Florida Complex League. The righty has only been out since June 22, so he doesn't figure to need much more rehab work at the lower levels. Head has a 7.23 ERA in 23.2 innings this season, so it's no guarantee he gets opportunities with the Orioles when fully up to speed.... See More ... See Less

Marlins' Louis Head: Set to resume throwing
Head (shoulder) will begin a throwing program Wednesday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

It's not yet clear how long he's been bothered by thee shoulder injury, but he'll be on the shelf for at least two weeks. Zach Pop was recalled from Triple-A Jacksonville to take Head's place in the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Louis Head: Picks up first career save
Head allowed a hit and no walks while striking out two in two-thirds of an inning to earn the save in Sunday's 5-4 win over Atlanta.

Head preserved the one-run lead to earn his first career save. The right-hander has now tossed 5.1 scoreless innings in his first six appearances of the season, but he's unlikely to be a regular option for saves since the Marlins also have Anthony Bender (hip), Cole Sulser and Richard Bleier in the bullpen, with Dylan Floro (shoulder) also close to returning....

Rays' Louis Head: Called up again
Head was recalled by the Rays on Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Head has bounced on and off the major-league roster all season and is about to embark on his remarkable 12th separate stint on the roster. Such is the life of a reliever with options, as his 2.51 ERA through 32.1 innings certainly doesn't merit constant demotions. He'll likely fill a low-leverage role during his time on the roster, which may not even last until the end of the week considering how his season has gone thus far.... See More ... See Less

Head was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Sunday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
