According to Roch Kubatko, the Orioles have signed Corey Patterson to a minor league contract to fill the spot left in Norfolk by Lou Montanez's promotion. Corey has had a tough road since leaving the Orioles after the 2007 season, spending almost as much time in the minors as the majors and finding himself in 2010. He was signed by the Mariners to a minor league deal in Spring Training, but opted out after he didn't make the team.
Just to recap, the Orioles started the 2010 season with an outfield envied by many. Nick Markakis, Adam Jones, Nolan Reimold, and Felix Pie. Now, Markakis and Jones are having a disappointing start to the season (Adam especially), Pie is out for three months, and Nolan can't play outfield due to his bum Achilles, leaving Lou Montanez to get starts in left.
