As the Birds Turn: Another week of small moves at the Warehouse...

Happy trails, eh? - Christian Petersen

Sure, there's a draft going on, but who's the utility infielder at Bowie?!

In a move sure to launch literally tens of Death of a Salesman jokes, the Orioles acquired 1B Seth Loman from the Chicago White Sox for cash considerations. The large (6'4"/250) and in charge 27 year old can bop, as indicated by his solid .282/.382/.509 career minor league slash line. He has walked 253 times and struck out 664 times in 2794 career plate appearances while hitting 124 bombs. He has also had his highest walk and k-rates and lowest BABIP this season since his professional debut in 2006. Loman has also been mashing lefties of late, but is no slouch against righties (.258/.439/.516 vs. .211/.372/.456).

You also may recall way back in April when the Orioles traded for legacy pro infielder Cale Iorg. Well, about that...

In 18 games for the Baysox, Iorg was sporting a .455 OPS and a .897 fielding percentage. Indy league/Rule 5 tweener Tom Boleska also retired. The Canadian righty walked 14 and struck out 28 in 16 games for the Baysox this season.

Finally, according to Matt Eddy, 2009 5th rounder Ashur Tolliver has been reinstated from the DL. His twitter feed seems to indicated that he's reporting to Delmarva.

Tolliver has had his share of injury issues, but is a lefthanded, carbon-based life form that can throw a baseball.
