Also, the Orioles find out today whether outfielder Lou Montanez, who was designated for assignment last week, clears waivers, but the result couldn't be any less significant for them. At season's end, Montanez will be a six-year minor league free agent and he can sign with any team that he wants to go to for 2011. I highly doubt that will be the Orioles, who already have a glut of outfielders and no plans to call up Montanez. So whether he clears or not, he isn't expected to be in the organization next year anyway. Montanez, of course, is hoping he doesn't clear so he gets on another 40-man roster.
