Odds & Ends: Braves, Orioles, Pirates

A few notes from around the majors…

  • Veteran Greg Norton tied a major league record in what may be his final season, says MLB.com's Mark Bowman
  • In another blog entry, Bowman said that though Martin Prado spent some time in the outfield while playing in his native Venezuela, Prado is not a candidate for Atlanta's right field job.
  • MASN's Steve Melewski reports that the Orioles have signed their first Guatemalan player, 17-year-old Manuel Hernandez
  • In a chat on MLB.com, Pirates president Frank Coonelly said that Andy LaRoche was "open" to the possibility of playing second base next season given some of Pittsburgh's minor-league options at third base (including top prospect Pedro Alvarez).
  • Dick Kaegel of MLB.com reports on two changes to Kansas City's coaching staff in 2010.
