Orioles add OF Reimold, INFs Snyder and Andino

The Baltimore Orioles have fortified their bench by recalling

three players from Triple-A Norfolk: outfielder Nolan Reimold and

infielders Brandon Snyder and Robert Andino.

The moves were made Wednesday.

Reimold started the season with the Orioles but was optioned to

Norfolk after batting .205 in 29 games. He was in the starting

lineup Wednesday night against Boston as a designated hitter.

Snyder, Baltimore’s first-round pick in the 2005 amateur draft,

has yet to play in the big leagues.

Andino played with the Orioles last year but had spent all of

this season with Norfolk after being designated for assignment by

Baltimore in early April.

To make room for Andino on the 40-man roster, the Orioles

designated outfielder Lou Montanez for assignment. Montanez batted

.223 in 93 games over the past three years with Baltimore.
