Andino stays

Utility infielder Robert Andino cleared waivers and has been outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk.

The Orioles tried to work out a deal for Andino but couldn’t find a trade partner. Concerns about his defense, especially at second base, led the Orioles to acquire Julio Lugo from the St. Louis Cardinals late in spring training.

Andino has been told that he’ll play shortstop at Norfolk, though the Orioles also have Blake Davis and Scott Moore. It’s getting a little crowded down there.
