Minor Moves: Lew Ford

Here are today's minor moves from around the league…

  • The Orioles released outfielder Lew Ford from Double-A Bowie, according to Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com (on Twitter). Ford, 37, resurfaced in the Majors with Baltimore in 2012 after a four-year hiatus, during which he played in Japan, Mexico and the independent circuit in the U.S. He batted .236/.291/.463 in 33 games across three levels in the Orioles' minor league system this season. Ford hit .302/.383/.461 in 188 games in his first two seasons with the Twins in 2003-04 but hasn't been able to recapture that form since.
  • As can be seen in MLBTR's DFA Tracker, there are four players currently in DFA limbo: Pat Neshek of the A's, Chien-Ming Wang of the Blue Jays, Edinson Volquez of the Padres and Edgmer Escalona of the Rockies.
