The Orioles designated Felix Pie for assignment to create roster space for Matt Angle, according to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun (on Twitter). The Orioles have confirmed the moves and announced that they also selected the contract of Jake Fox.
Pie, who is out of options, is under team control through 2013 and earns $985K this year. The 26-year-old posted a .220/.264/.280 line in 175 plate appearances for Baltimore this year, playing all three outfield positions. Pie, a former top prospect, has a .249/.298/.374 line in 1051 career plate appearances for the Cubs and Orioles. His most productive years came in 2009-10 in Baltimore (.739 OPS).
MLBTR's Tim Dierkes suggested earlier today that Pie was a candidate to lose his roster spot.
