Orioles Designate Chorye Spoone For Assignment

The Orioles designated minor league starter Chorye Spoone for assignment to create a 40-man roster spot for newly-acquired Zach Phillips, according to a team press release.

Spoone, 25, posted a 4.73 ERA, 5.6 K/9, 5.1 BB/9, and 0.6 HR/9 in 97 innings for the Orioles' Triple and Double-A affiliates this year.  Prior to the season, Baseball America ranked Spoone 24th among Orioles prospects, saying that he once had electric stuff but now may be better off as a reliever.  Spoone had shoulder surgery after the '08 season.
