Movin' Minor Leaguers
The Orioles made a few minor league moves over the weekend. They signed left-handed pitcher Ryan Edell, right-handed pitchers Eun Chol Choi, Jon Link and Kyler Newby, and outfielders Lee Cruz and Antoan Richardson.
They re-signed infielder Carlos Rojas, who has been with the organization since 2008, and has bounced between AA Bowie and AAA Norfolk, but is still waiting for his first call-up to Baltimore.
Also re-signing was pitcher, Raul Rivero, who has steadily risen through the organization since signing out of Venezuela in 2005. He has played at every level of the minors for the O's up through AA Bowie, where he spent the entire 2011 season.
A few other former Orioles minor leaguers signed with other organizations as Mike Ballard inked with the Nationals
and Brendan Harris signed with the Rockies.
