Orioles outright outfielder Steve Pearce to Triple-A Norfolk

The Orioles have outrighted outfielder Steve Pearce to Triple-A Norfolk, the team announced today.

Pearce spent two separate stints with the Orioles last season, hitting .254/.321/.437 in 28 games with the big league club. He also spent time with the Houston Astros and New York Yankees last season.

The Orioles signed Pearce to a major-league contract just before last month's deadline to tender contracts to arbitration eligible players.

So the move could be an indicator that the Orioles need Pearce's 40-man roster spot to make an upcoming move. Stay tuned.
