A few other notes..
*Rick VandenHurk was released today, after clearing waivers, and the right-hander is now officially a free agent. VandenHurk was taken off the 40-man roster to make room for Wilson Betemit. Best of luck to VandenHurk moving forward.
*The organization has also hired Chris Correnti as a Performance Consultant. Correnti, who was with the New York Mets as a rehabilitation specialist from 2007-2010, will fill a similar role for the Orioles. He served as an assistant trainer and rehab coordinator with the Boston Red Sox during Dan Duquette’s time as general manager.
In his role, Correnti will provide fitness and conditioning advisory services to the organization. He will be responsible for the oversight of the individual rehabilitation of injured players, as selected by the medical staff. He will also implement year-round training and conditioning programs for the organization’s pitchers.
