Robert Andino has cleared waivers and has been outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk, the Orioles announced today.
As a utility infielder in 2009, Andino batted .222 with 10 RBIs in 78 games. He was acquired by the Orioles on April 1, 2009 in a deal that sent Hayden Penn to the Florida Marlins.
Andino's place on the Orioles' roster became tenuous when the club traded for St. Louis Cardinals infielder Julio Lugo. Andino was designated for assignment April 4.
