Orioles sent C Johnny Monell outright to Triple-A Norfolk.

Orioles designated C Johnny Monell for assignment.

Johnny Monell went 3-for-4 with a home run and four RBI in the Orioles' win over the Twins on Wednesday.

Monell struck out in three of his first four at-bats this spring, but the 27-year-old couldn't miss on Wednesday. Monell stroked two singles to go with his three-run home run off Jared Burton in the third inning. The catcher, who was acquired from the Giants in November, has always been a threat at the plate. If the Orioles can stomach his defense behind it, he could find his way onto the Opening Day roster as backup to Matt Wieters.

Orioles acquired catcher Johnny Monell from the Giants for cash considerations.

The 27-year-old Monell hit .275/.364/.494 as Triple-A Fresno's starting catcher last season, but defense behind the plate has held him back. While the Orioles could consider carrying him as Matt Wieters' backup, they'll likely continue to look at alternatives.
