Orioles Option Stu Pomeranz And DFA Antonelli

Orioles Option Stu Pomeranz And DFA Antonelli

The Orioles created room on the 25-man roster for outfielder Xavier Avery by optioning reliever Stu Pomeranz. They made room on the 40-man by designating infielder Matt Antonelli for assignment.

Pomeranz hasn't allowed a run in two appearances covering four innings since the Orioles purchased his contract on May 7. He gave up four hits, walked one and struck out three.

The writing was on the wall for Antonelli when the Orioles bypassed him twice for non-roster players Steve Tolleson and Bill Hall. Antonelli, signed as a minor league free agent on Nov. 21, is batting .204/.351/.280 with four doubles, one homer and seven RBIs in 29 games at Triple-A Norfolk.

A little disappointed in Pomeranz being called down, but he will be up again soon I think.

Antonelli has been disappointing to say the least.

Why? I think an extra bullpen arm is more vaulable then some outfield depth. Tolleson, Hall, Betemit, and Flaherty can hold down left field until Chavez/Reimold comes back. Is Antonelli going to stay with the organization?
