Orioles - Outrighted Raines

Baltimore Orioles - Outrighted OF Tim Raines Jr.; optioned OF Jeff Fiorentino to Frederick; recalled OF Ramon Nivar.

Raines Sr. is probably still a better player than Raines Jr. is and I wouldn’t be too suprised if this was still the case in 10 years.

Nivar’s probably more useful as a backup at this point than Fiorentino is (though it was fun to see a player promoted aggressively in this organization).  I am suprised that they’re sending him all the way back down to A-ball; I figured he at least earned a promotion to Bowie.
