Fiorentino gone again

Jeff Fiorentino is packing his bags again.

According to this tweet from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Orioles traded Fiorentino to the Atlanta Braves for cash considerations.

Here today, gone tomorrow, here again, gone again...

Fiorentino was batting .250 with one double, two triples, two homers and 13 RBIs in 20 games with Double-A Bowie. He’ll report to the Braves’ Double-A affiliate in Mississippi.

Fiorentino appeared in 56 games with the Orioles over parts of the 2006, 2007 and 2009 seasons. He got into two games with the Oakland Athletics in 2008 and played in Japan last year.

The Orioles drafted him in the third round in 2004 and reacquired him twice - off waivers and as a minor league free agent - before making today’s trade.

Maybe a third reunion is already in the works. Stay tuned.

Outfielder Kyle Hudson was promoted from Single-A Frederick to Bowie earlier today.
