O's trim spring roster by six players

The Orioles today announced six spring training roster cuts, bringing their spring roster to 37 players.

The Orioles optioned infielder Josh Bell to Triple-A Norfolk and assigned non-roster catcher Michel Hernandez to minor league camp.

Minor league invitees left-handers Mike Ballard, Alberto Castillo and Chris George, and right-hander Chris Jakubauskas were also assigned to minor league camp.

With the moves, the Orioles have 37 players in camp including 19 pitchers (five non-roster invitees), seven outfielders (one non-roster invitee), eight infielders (two non-roster invitees) and three catchers.
