Blue Jays sent LHP Scott Barnes outright to Triple-A Buffalo.
Barnes held a 3.60 ERA over seven appearances this spring after being claimed off waivers from the Rangers. He'll now be exposed to waivers again.
Nolan Reimold homered and doubled in his two at-bats before Friday's Orioles-Rays game was called due to rain.
The Orioles were up 4-3 in the fourth when the game ended. Since it's not official, stats from the game won't count. That's too bad for Reimold, who needs every hit he can muster to force the Orioles to free up a roster spot for him. They probably can't carry all three of him, Delmon Young and David Lough as bench players. Including today, Reimold is batting .353 with two homers and a 5/6 K/BB ratio in 34 at-bats.
Robbie Grossman (quad) has been cleared for game action.
Grossman had to leave Wednesday's game with a bruised quad, but he's OK after a day of rest. The 25-year-old is competing for a backup outfielder job.
Bud Norris surrendered three runs over four innings Friday against the Rays.
Norris lowered his spring ERA to 8.62, so that's something. After striking out one and walking two today, he's sporting a 10/11 K/BB ratio in 15 2/3 innings. He's certainly pitched the worst of the Orioles' rotation options, but since he's coming off a 15-win season, it's hard to imagine the team sending him to the pen. He'll probably get the month of April to work through his troubles.
Jonathan Villar (ankle) has been cleared for game action.
Villar was held out of workouts for a day due to a sprained ankle, but he's fine. The 23-year-old has a good shot at a utility role with a .286/.390/.486 batting line so far this camp.
Mike Montgomery gave up three runs in an inning of work before Friday's game against the Orioles was cut short due to rain.
Montgomery opened camp as a reliever, only to be thrust into the rotation mix because of the Rays' myriad injuries. If the season started tomorrow, either Montgomery or Everett Teaford, who started today and allowed one run in two innings, would be the Rays' fifth starter. Still, our guess is that the Rays will grab a veteran cut by another team to round out their rotation.
Twins sent RHP Lester Oliveros outright to Triple-A Rochester.
They now have an extra spot on their 40-man roster, which they're likely to use to add Blaine Boyer. Oliveros was sent to minor league camp earlier this month.
Marlins re-assigned INF Scott Sizemore to minor league camp.
Sizemore had four hits in just 12 spring at-bats. The oft-injured infielder will provide depth at Triple-A.
