Reds pick up Fiorentino

January 05, 2008|By ROCH KUBATKO

The Cincinnati Reds claimed former Orioles outfielder Jeff Fiorentino off waivers. The Orioles designated Fiorentino for assignment this week to make room on the 40-man roster for outfielder Chris Roberson, who was acquired from the Philadelphia Phillies for cash considerations. Fiorentino, drafted in the third round in 2004, batted .282 with 15 homers and 65 RBIs at Double-A Bowie last season. He hit .253 with one homer in 32 games with the Orioles during the 2005 and 2006 seasons.
