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.
