The clubhouse is closed to the media because the Orioles are
making cuts. We were in there for about 30 minutes and it wasn’t hard to guess
who was moving over based on their street clothes and faces.
Brandon Snyder, Josh Bell, Rhyne Hughes, Jonathan Tucker,
Dennis Sarfate and Pedro Florimon were packing their bags and have 72 hours to
report to Minor League camp in the adjoining locker room. Michael Aubrey, Frank Mata and Josh Perrault were also assigned to Minor League camp.
In 17 games, Bell went 7-for-31, including a homer from both
sides of the plate in the team’s Grapefruit League opener.
Snyder was 6-for-18 with one home run and three RBIs in 13
games. He also played some impressive defense at first and said he was good with the move because he knows where he stands in the organization.
Also, the Orioles made official the Stockstill brothers swap.
