Orioles Release Chad Moeller

The Orioles granted catcher Chad Moeller his request to be released, reports Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun.  The Orioles re-signed Moeller to a minor league deal in December, but recently chose Craig Tatum to back up Matt Wieters.  Moeller refused a minor league assignment.  The Sun's Peter Schmuck questioned the Tatum selection in an article yesterday.

Zrebiec notes that the Orioles are now in the market for a backup catcher to help out at Triple A.

Moeller’s a great guy who works well with pitching staffs. The O’s just decided to go with a better Defensive catcher to back up Weiters. good luck and hope he finds work somewhere.
