Orioles Designate Lou Montanez For Assignment

The Orioles designated Lou Montanez for assignment to make room for Robert Andino on the 40-man rosterm according to the team. Baltimore called up Andino, Brandon Snyder and Nolan Reimold today, now that rosters have expanded.

Montanez, 28, has not played in a game for the Orioles since late June. He has spent much of the season in the minor leagues, but did play all three outfield positions for Baltimore earlier in the year. In 11 minor league seasons, the former first-rounder has a .778 OPS. Montanez has just 266 career plate appearances in the big leagues; his major line of .223/.257/.323 doesn't compare to his minor league numbers.
