Mariners designated OF Xavier Avery for assignment.

Avery has speed but has hit just .261/.329/.356 in the minors. He could pass through waivers unclaimed.
Mar 28 - 5:16 PM

Mariners acquired OF Xavier Avery from the Orioles for 1B/OF Michael Morse.

Avery is a career .260/.328/.354 hitter in the minors that batted only .223/.305/.340 during a 32-game stint with the O's last year. He's a great athlete, but his lack of hitting skills limits him to being, at best, a fourth outfielder.

Orioles optioned OF Xavier Avery to Triple-A Norfolk.

Avery was only up for one day and didn't appear in a game. The O's will bring up a reliever prior to Friday's game.

Orioles optioned OF Xavier Avery, RHP Zach Clark and LHP Mike Belfiore to Triple-A Norfolk.

Avery had a shot at earning a bench job this spring, but none of these cuts are surprising. Belfiore is a guy to keep an eye on after he experienced a bit of a breakthrough last season in the minors in his first full year as a reliever.

Orioles recalled OF Xavier Avery from Triple-Norfolk.

Avery hit .278 (5-for-18) during his latest stint in the majors and is capable of backing up all three outfield spots. He could see semi-regular starts behind Nate McLouth in left field, but won't hold any fantasy value outside of AL-only leagues.

Orioles optioned OF Xavier Avery to Triple-A Norfolk.

He was likely cleared to make room for Endy Chavez, who is expected to be activated from the disabled list Friday. Avery is hitting .233/.317/.356 with six steals and a .672 OPS in 103 plate appearances at the big league level this season and should be back later this summer.

Orioles optioned OF Xavier Avery to Triple-A Norfolk.

The Orioles needed another bullpen arm after getting blasted for 47 runs over the last five games. Avery will return to a .268/.372/.411 batting line with six homers and 16 steals at Norfolk.

Orioles recalled OF Xavier Avery from Triple-A Norfolk.

Avery is starting in left field on Thursday night against the Indians and could be in line for regular playing time while the O's battle through a multitude of outfield injuries. Avery, 22, hit just .217 with a .615 OPS in 68 plate appearances for Baltimore earlier this year, but he may be a good source of steals in AL-only fantasy leagues.
Thu, Jun 28, 2012 03:11:00 PM

Orioles optioned OF Xavier Avery to Triple-A Norfolk.

Avery will head back down to the minors to play every day now that Endy Chavez is back from the disabled list. The 22-year-old batted .217/.299/.317 with four RBI, four stolen bases and a .615 OPS in 68 plate appearances during his first stint in the majors.
Tue, May 29, 2012 04:03:00 PM

Xavier Avery went 0-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI in Monday's setback to Boston.

Interestingly, Avery was the only batter on either side not to get a hit. Still, he is off to a good major league start with a .278/.366/.417 triple slash.
Tue, May 22, 2012 06:53:00 AM

Orioles purchased the contract of OF Xavier Avery from Triple-A Norfolk.

He's playing left field and batting leadoff Sunday. Avery was batting .273/.373/.469 with five homers and eight steals for Norfolk and is worth scooping up in AL-only leagues.
Sun, May 13, 2012 11:13:00 AM

The Orioles are expected to purchase the contract of outfield prospect Xavier Avery from Triple-A Norfolk prior to Sunday's game.

He's not on the 40-man roster, so the O's will have to do some shuffling. Avery, 22, is batting .273/.373/.469 with five homers and eight steals for Norfolk. He could receive some playing time in left field with both Nolan Reimold and Endy Chavez out. Avery will be making his major league debut.
