Orioles outfielder Felix Pie has cleared waivers.
He can now elect to become a free agent or report to Triple-A Norfolk. He has until Saturday morning to make that decision, but he can make it sooner.
If he chooses to become a free agent, he would forfeit what is left of his $985,000 salary for 2011.
Update: Pie is expected to accept the assignment and will report to Norfolk either Friday or Saturday.
