We've been telling you for the last year that the Orioles clubhouse is pretty loose. Here was another example of that, courtesy of newcomer Russ Canzler's big day on Wednesday against a Team Spain club made up of minor leaguers and independent leaguers. Canzler, who is fighting for a reserve job as a first baseman-outfielder, didn't realize that his two-homer, six RBI performance Wednesday wouldn't count toward the spring stats until after he came out of the game and got some razzing from his teammates.

One night after being sent down to Norfolk, right-hander Josh Stinson started for the Tides on Friday against Charlotte. Stinson pitched into the sixth inning, but he was removed after walking the first batter of the inning. He finished with one run on four hits and two walks in five innings with five strikeouts. Showalter said he wants the 25-year-old to keep pitching on his usual days and not sit around in the Orioles bullpen waiting for an opportunity. Stinson posted three straight quality starts for the Tides, including allowing one unearned run on three hits over seven innings at Charlotte on July 6 in his final start before his Wednesday call-up.

Russ Canzler spent this offseason flipping rosters. He was placed on waivers four times and has been claimed each time. Since mid-December, Canzler was on the 40-man rosters of the Indians, Blue Jays, Indians again, Yankees and then the Orioles. “I just kind of sat in my living room and answered the phone every couple weeks to see which team I was going to be on,” Canzler said with a smile. “You can get worked up about it. You can get upset, but I have a lot of faith I'd land somewhere.

The Orioles acquired infielder Alex Liddi from the Seattle Mariners and designated infielder Russ Canzler for assignment, the team announced Saturday. Along with Liddi, the Orioles received the Mariners' international signing bonus slot No. 3, while sending the Mariners their international signing bonus slot No. 2. Liddi, 24, was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk. He played in 61 games in the majors for the Mariners since 2011, hitting .208/.266/.370 with six home runs and 16 RBIs.

The Orioles have claimed first baseman/outfielder Russ Canzler off waivers and designated catcher Luis Martinez for assignment to make room for him on the team's 40-man roster, the club announced Tuesday. The organization had interest in claiming the 26-year-old Canzler earlier this offseason - this was the fourth time he was placed on waivers since the end of last season - but the Orioles were never previously high enough on the waivers list to snag him. The Yankees designated Canzler for assignment Friday to make room for Travis Hafner.

The Orioles made two outfield roster cuts before Monday's game, optioning Russ Canzler to Triple-A Norfolk and reassigning Jason Pridie to minor league camp. The moves trim the Orioles spring training roster to 38 players, including 10 non-roster invitees. Canzler, who played both outfield and first base competing for a reserve spot, recorded a .265/.324/.294 batting line this spring in 23 games. Pridie, a non-roster invitee, had a solid spring, hitting .310/.341/.548 with two homers and nine RBIs in 19 games.

The Orioles took a break from their exhibition schedule to play a true exhibition game - one in which the stats don't count in Grapefruit League action - against Spain's World Baseball Classic team on Wednesday afternoon. Russ Canzler may petition the league office to let this one count. In the Orioles 19-7 victory, Canzler, who is fighting for a reserve role, put up some gaudy numbers. He hit two homers - a three-run shot in the first and a two-run homer in the fourth -- and added a sacrifice fly - for six RBIs.

The Orioles announced after Saturday's 10-6 loss to the Tampa Bay rays that they optioned infielder Ryan Flaherty to Triple-A Norfolk. Flaherty, 26, was hitting .133 with a .228 on-base percentage and a .233 slugging percentage in 90 at-bats over 30 games for the Orioles this season. He had two homers and six RBIs. Flaherty appeared in Saturday's game as a defensive replacement. The Orioles recalled Yamaico Navarro from Norfolk on Tuesday and he started the past two games at second base.

The Orioles have made another roster claim, this time grabbing right-handed pitcher Todd Redmond from the Cincinnati Reds. To make room for Redmond on the 40-man roster, the club designated outfielder Trayvon Robinson for assignment. Robinson was acquired in November when the Orioles dealt Robert Andino to Seattle. But the Orioles have signed several reserve outfielders since then -- including Chris Dickerson -- and Robinson's spot became less secure. In addition, the club announced that catcher Luis Rodriguez, who was designated earlier this week for Russ Canzler, has cleared waivers and been outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Because of the surplus of minor league outfield depth the Orioles have, outfielders Xavier Avery and Lew Ford will open the season at Double-A Bowie, executive vice president Dan Duquette said Sunday. Ford, 36, had a strong spring, compiling a .405/.463/.643 batting line with three doubles, two homers and six RBIs in 37 Grapefruit League at-bats. Ford came to the Orioles on a minor league deal last season, signed from the independent league Long Island Ducks and played 25 games with the Orioles last season, hitting .183/.256/.352 with three homers and four RBIs.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter knows the numbers don't add up. The Orioles were successful in strengthening their depth this offseason, but the glut of outfielders will make it difficult to keep all of them in the organization. “You guys have done the math,” Showalter told reporters Tuesday. Before Tuesday's Grapefruit League game in Fort Myers, the team reassigned outfielder Lew Ford to minor league camp with the hope that he will be in the mix for Triple-A at-bats, but knowing that there are only so many outfield spots in Norfolk.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- With 16 players capable of playing the outfield in Orioles camp this spring, manager Buck Showalter will spend a lot of time with his eyes on the outfield. In deciding reserve roles, defensive flexibility will play a large factor. Four players - Russ Canzler, Travis Ishiakwa, Steve Pearce and Conor Jackson - will split time between outfield and first base as the Orioles seek a back up first baseman behind Chris Davis, which could give them a leg up on the competition Utility man Ryan Flaherty also offers a backup option at those positions.
