Orioles make first roster cuts, work out Buxton

The Baltimore Sun

The Orioles' first roster cuts of the spring were made Sunday afternoon, and there weren’t a lot of big surprises.

Infielders Ryan Adams and Josh Bell were optioned to Triple-A Norfolk, while rookie right-hander Dylan Bundy is headed to Single-A Delmarva. Xavier Avery, L.J. Hoes, Michael Ohlman, Manny Machado, Brian Ward and Steve Johnson had been informed that they were returning to minor league camp.

Technically, Machado is not a cut. He's a minor league invitee, so he is just being sent back to minor league camp. He'll likely be brought back to play in a few more spring games.

Buxton works out for O’s

The Orioles worked out projected top-five high school prospect Byron Buxton early Sunday at Ed Smith Stadium. Buxton, a two-sport star at Appling County High School in Baxley, Ga., could still be available when the Orioles pick fourth in the June draft, but there’s a lot of buzz that the Mariners will take him with the third pick.
