Orioles Designate Justin Turner For Assignment

The Orioles designated Justin Turner for assignment to make room for Scott Moore, according to a team press release. Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun anticipated the move earlier this afternoon. Turner, a 25-year-old infielder who was acquired in the Ramon Hernandez deal, was hitless in nine trips to the plate this year. Turner hit .300/.362/.388 at Triple A Norfolk last year, but is not considered a top Orioles prospect.

Moore, 26, was hitting .276/.324/.463 in Triple A. The former first round pick hasn't appeared in the majors since 2008, but he has had brief stints with the Cubs and Orioles. Moore is primarily an infielder and he has professional experience in the outfield.
