Well, the Orioles juggled some players and seem to have changed option dates on Alex Burnett, so we are in for another posting of Arrivals and Departures. If you want a quick primer, you will find it here. If you have any further questions, feel free to email me at Jon.Shepherd@baltimoresportsandlife.com.
Transactions since 4/7/2013:
4/22/13 – Orioles option RHP Jake Arrieta to Norfolk and recall RHP Alex Burnett from Norfolk.
4/24/13 – Orioles option RHP Alex Burnett to Norfolk and recall RHP Josh Stinson from Frederick.
4/25/13 – Orioles option RHP Josh Stinson to Norfolk and recall LHP Zach Britton from Norfolk.
4/28/13 – Orioles place C Taylor Teagarden on the 15 day DL after his thumb was dislocated by a foul tip. C Luis Exposito was recalled from Norfolk.
The only interesting aspect to all of this pitcher shuffling is that Alex Burnett’s promotion resets his option date to 4/24/13. If my math and understanding of the CBA is correct, he needs to stay down there until May 13th for it to count for the year.
