Orioles send Dan Johnson and Chris Dickerson to Norfolk
The Baltimore Orioles have sent Dan Johnson and Chris Dickerson to AAA Norfolk. They have outrighted them so they are not on the 40-man roster. This keeps both these players on the Orioles team.
Dickerson had some valuable at bats with the Orioles last season but he was mainly at Norfolk. Johnson only received a few at bats with the Orioles.
Here is the Orioles press release.
