Three More Outrighted

The Orioles have outrighted RHP Alfredo Simon, RHP Bob McCrory, and LHP Rich Hill to AAA Norfolk after they passed through waivers, removing them from the 40 man roster.

Grade: C

The Orioles are just clearing out the dead weight so they can protect some minor league players from the rule 5 draft. I don’t see Simon or McCrory being with the Orioles next year. Hill could elect to become a free agent or he could stay in our minors. He still has some interesting potential, but hes running out of time to prove himself. The Orioles are getting ready for the offseason. I can’t wait to see what they’re going to do.

11/04 Update: LHP Rich Hill, OF Jeff Fiorentino, and C Guillermo Rodriguez have refused their demotions and elected to become free agents. They could still sign with the Orioles. RHP Alfredo Simon accepted his demotion to AAA Norfolk. Also, 3B Scott Moore was re-signed to a minor league contract.
