The latest minor transactions:
- The Orioles announced that right-hander Shawn Armstrong has cleared waivers and been sent outright to Triple-A Norfolk. Baltimore designated the 30-year-old for assignment last week. As a player who has previously been outrighted in his career, Armstrong had the right to elect free agency. He’s apparently chosen to accept the minor league assignment, though, as he’s listed on Norfolk’s active roster. Armstrong tossed twenty innings for the O’s this season before being designated, only managing an 8.55 ERA/4.30 SIERA.
