Orioles notes on Gonzalez, Ohlman, etc.
The Orioles made a bunch of minor moves on Tuesday, agreeing to terms with right-handed pitcher Miguel Gonzalez, trading Steve Lombardozzi and Michael Ohlman and bringing back outfielder Nolan Reimold on a Minor League contract.
Gonzalez will get $3.275 million for 2015 and leaves the O’s with just two remaining arbitration eligibles in closer Zach Britton and Alejandro De Aza.
Lombardozzi was traded to the Pirates while Ohlman was dealt to the Cardinals, with both moves netting Baltimore cash considerations. Lombardozzi, 26, spent most of the season in Triple-A for the Orioles, who acquired him in a late spring trade from the Tigers. Ohlman, who had been designated for assignment by Baltimore, has yet to play above Double-A and is coming off a disappointing 2014 campaign in which he batted .236/.310/.318.
Reimold’s deal, which was first reported by MASNSports.com, includes an invite to Major League Spring Training. The 31-year-old has spent most of his big league career in Baltimore, the organization that originally drafted him, and was a waiver claim by Toronto in July. He was later claimed again by Arizona.
