Minor O's moves

The Orioles announced tonight that they have outrighted catcher Guillermo Quiroz and pitcher Freddie Deza to the Triple-A Norfolk roster, clearing two spaces on the 40-man major league roster.

The roster now stands at 38, which clears room for a variety of possibilities. The Orioles now have room to acquire a couple of major league players by trade or free agency. They could also use one or both of the spaces to take players in the Rule 5 draft.

Quiroz, since he has been outrighted before, has eight days to accept the assignment, but both players have signed 2009 contracts.
