Robert Andino Clears Waivers

WEDNESDAY, 1:09pm: Andino has cleared waivers and been outrighted to Triple A Norfolk, according to an Orioles press release.  MLB.com's Brittany Ghiroli has comments from Andino on the situation.

SATURDAY, 3:25pm: The Orioles have designated Robert Andino for assignment, writes Dan Connolly of The Baltimore Sun.  The club now has ten days to trade, release, or request waivers on the infielder.

The recent acquisition of Julio Lugo from the Cardinals made the soon-to-be 26-year-old expendable.  Baltimore GM Andy MacPhail says that the roster, barring injury, is now set, according to MLB.com's Britt Ghiroli.

In 215 plate appearances for the O's last season, Andino hit .222/.274/.288 with 2 HRs.  However, he played an above-average shortstop, posting a UZR/150 of 6.3.

I’m sure they tried, I was just somewhat surprised he wasn’t traded to someone like Texas.

This would be a great back up plan for Houston if Tommy Manzella falls through. Houston MOST get him!!!!

I am glad we were able to retain both Andino and Aubrey, would have been a shame to lose either for the sake of Lugo…
