ST. PETERSBUG, Fla. -- The Orioles optioned catcher Chris Snyder to Triple-A Norfolk, the club announced on Friday. Because of his major league service time, Snyder can either accept the assignment or choose to become a free agent. Snyder was designated for assignment Tuesday so the team could activate catcher Taylor Teagarden from the disabled list. He cleared waivers before being optioned to Norfolk. The Orioles would like to keep Snyder because he gives them a valuable veteran backstop to be third on the organization's depth chart behind Matt Wieters and Teagarden.

The Orioles have attempted to bolster their lack of catching depth by sending minor league right-hander Rob Delaney to the Los Angeles Angels organization for veteran catcher Chris Snyder. Snyder, 32, will meet the team in Seattle on Tuesday and presumably will take over the back-up catching void created when Taylor Teagarden dislocated his left thumb Saturday. The Orioles recalled Luis Exposito for Sunday's game - he did not play -- but now it is likely he will lose his place on the big league roster Tuesday with the pending arrival of Snyder, a veteran of parts of nine major league seasons.

Today marks the first day that Major League Baseball's free agents can sign with any club. In the previous period between today and the end of the World Series, players could only sign with their most recent clubs. Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said Monday that, during the exclusive signing period, he did not have any negotiations with representatives of his seven free agents -- right-handed pitchers Scott Feldman, Jason Hammel and Francisco Rodriguez, infielder Brian Roberts, catcher Chris Snyder and outfielders Nate McLouth and Mike Morse.

The Orioles can win a series for the first time in two weeks this afternoon with a win over the White Sox. The Oriols win' last night, combined with the Rays' loss out west, puts them just two games out of the second AL wild-card spot as play begins today. Catcher Matt Wieters is getting the afternoon off, and Chris Snyder is making his first start since he joined the club on Sept. 1. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said if he would have considered starting reserve catcher Steve Clevenger (Mount St. Joseph)

It's hard to argue with the logic of designating backup catcher Taylor Teagarden for assignment at this point in the season, but that doesn't mean it isn't a tough break for a guy who has been a good soldier playing a very difficult role. Teagarden played in just 23 games this year and never got an opportunity to get into any kind of rhythm at the plate. That's the way it goes when you play behind a guy who's going to play every possible inning, and you really can't say that the decision to replace him on the roster with Chris Snyder and Steve Clevenger is not fair.

Orioles rookie right-hander Kevin Gausman 's first two major league starts were marred by home runs and inconsistencies. After losses to Toronto and Washington, the rookie entered Sunday's matchup with Detroit - the best hitting team in the majors - with an 11.00 ERA. But before the matchup with the Tigers - a 4-2 Orioles win - Gausman spent more time in the video room with catcher Chris Snyder looking over the Tigers' lineup from top...

SEATTLE -- The Orioles have made a series of roster moves before tonight's game against the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field. Right-hander Zach Clark (UMBC) has been called up from Triple-A Norfolk and catcher Chris Snyder -- acquired in a trade from the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday -- has also been activated. Lefty Zach Britton, who allowed six runs in six innings Monday night here, has been optioned back to Norfolk. Catcher Luis Exposito has been designated for assignment, clearing room on the 40-man roster for Snyder.

NEW YORK - The Orioles made major switches at the catcher position on the first day of roster expansion Sunday, designating backup Taylor Teagarden for assignment while purchasing the contract of veteran Chris Snyder and Baltimore native Steve Clevenger from Triple-A Norfolk. Teagarden, who has been the Orioles' chief backup behind Matt Wieters since last, found himself as the odd man out. Snyder - who filled in when Teagarden went on the disabled list earlier this season - could have opted out of his contract if the Orioles didn't add him to the active roster Sunday.

The Orioles have done a good job of not allowing tough losses to linger, and they'll have to do that again this afternoon in their series finale against the Tigers at Camden Yards. “You get beat some times and today we got beat,” center fielder Adam Jones said following the Orioles' 10-3 loss to the Tigers. “It happens. But [Sunday] there's a series to win and according to my calculations, if you win a lot of series you should put yourself in pretty good situations.” The Orioles' loss Saturday to Detroit was bizarre.

When Orioles right-hander Freddy Garcia was left without a job just a week before the regular season began this year, there was no doubt in his mind that he would pitch in the major leagues in 2013 if he was given the chance. Garcia - a 15-year major league veteran who won the World Series with the Chicago White Sox in 2005 and is the winningest Venezuelan-born pitcher in baseball history (152 career wins) - didn't need to prove anything after the San Diego Padres released him in late March.
