Blue Jays signed RHP Chorye Spoone to a minor league contract.

He was evidently cut loose by the Red Sox after posting a 3.51 ERA and 27/34 K/BB ratio over 41 innings between Double- and Triple-A. Spoone has always had a good arm but trouble finding the strike zone. It's unlikely he'll make an impact in Toronto.

Red Sox signed RHP Chorye Spoone to a minor league contract.

He'll also get an invite to spring training. Spoone, 26, posted a 4.50 ERA and 80/67 K/BB ratio over 122 innings this season between Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk. He'll likely serve as organizational depth.

Orioles designated RHP Chorye Spoone for assignment.

Orioles prospect right-hander Chorye Spoone is confident that he's fully recovered from shoulder surgery.

Spoone was once one of the O's top pitching prospects, but has had a long road back since undergoing surgery in September of 2008. He appeared in 10 games in 2009 and tossed 132 innings with Double-A Bowie last season, but hasn't felt fully confident in his shoulder until now. "I would say, the way my shoulder is feeling now and the way my offseason throwing program went, some will look at me and say, 'he'll never be the way he was in '07.' But I feel I am back as close as I can get to that and all I can do is get stronger," explained Spoone. "I feel like my stuff will be there this year as good as it ever has been." Spoone showed flashes of his electric stuff with the Baysox last season, but only managed an 88/79 K/BB ratio. Finally healthy, 2011 figures to be a crucial year for the 25-year-old's development.

Orioles purchased the contracts of RHP Chorye Spoone, RHP Bradley Bergesen, LHP Wilfrido Perez, OF Nolan Reimold and RHP David Hernandez.

Spoone gets added to the 40-man roster even though he'll miss much of next season following shoulder surgery. He is quite promising, so another team might have picked him in the Rule 5 draft and stuck him on the DL for most of the year.
