Down on the farm

Nolan Reimold is starting at first base tonight for Triple-A Norfolk. He has a five-game hitting streak, and is heating up as of late. Still, I’m told his strikeouts are still a concern within the organization.

Robert Andino
has been playing second base exclusively at the Orioles request, which is an interesting move. He’s not on the team’s 40-man roster, but getting Andino some work at second could signify a number of things.

Could the Orioles DFA Julio Lugo? More likely they’d try to deal him, since Lugo’s had a nice few games on the West Coast and has been mentioned (along with Cesar Izturis) in various trade rumors. Could it spell the end of Ty Wigginton, another trade chip ? I don’t know. It could be as simple as them wanting him to be more versatile. Still, it’s an interesting situation to keep tabs on as trade talks start to heat up. FYI, the deadline is July 31.
