Friday Bird Droppings: Where the Orioles’ roster paring has begun

Good morning, Camden Chatters.

If you’re the type of baseball fan who thirsts for roster moves, yesterday was your lucky day. The Orioles began cutting down their 40-man roster in preparation for adding a number of prospects by Nov. 20. They unlucky quartet to lose their spots yesterday were infielder Andrew Velazquez and pitchers David Hess, Branden Kline, and Kohl Stewart. Hess became a free agent, while the other three were outrighted to the minors and will stay in the organization.

There are no surprises on that list.
