I would be surprised if RF was cut loose after coming this far with the team. I think Lew Ford goes back to Norfolk and returns when there is an injury
To demote Lew Ford, he would have to clear waivers and at this point in the season he probably would not. He has no options remaining that I am aware of. His contract was purchased by the Orioles and would need to stay on the 25 Man Roster.
Endy Chavez would have a better chance of clearing waivers and then he would have to accept an assignment in the Minors or become a free agent. I seriously doubt we would end up returning Flaherty to the Cubs as he also would not clear waivers.
