Orioles Designate Michael Aubrey For Assignment

The Orioles designated first baseman Michael Aubrey for assignment to make room for Julio Lugo, according to a team press release.  Officially, the O's acquired Lugo and cash from the Cardinals for a player to be named later or cash. 

Aubrey, 28 in a few weeks, hit .290/.323/.436 in 407 Triple A plate appearances last year and .289/.326/.500 in a 95 plate appearance stint in the bigs.

Aubrey was drafted 11th overall by the Indians in 2003 out of Tulane.  He dealt with back and hamstring injuries in the Indians' organization, and was eventually designated for assignment in January of '09.  He cleared waivers, but was traded to the Orioles for a player to be named later in June.
