Orioles lose Florimon, outright Viola

The Orioles announced on Monday that left-handed pitcher Pedro Viola has cleared waivers and been outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk. Additionally, infielder Pedro Florimon, Jr. has been claimed on waivers by the Minnesota Twins.

Viola, 28, appeared in four games for the Orioles in 2011, pitching to a 9.82 ERA (3.2IP, 4ER).  He owns a 7.50 ERA (12.0IP, 10ER) in 15 career major league games.

Florimon, 25 on Saturday, went 1-for-8 for the Orioles in 2011, making his major league debut on September 10 at Toronto.

With these moves, the Orioles now have 39 players on their 40-man roster, meaning they have a spot for Thursday’s Rule 5 Draft.
