Orioles reassign 3 to Minor League camp

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orioles reassigned three players following Sunday's split-squad games, trimming their spring roster to 37 by sending Dariel Alvarez, Chaz Roe and Chris Parmelee to Minor League camp. The moves leave five non-roster players in camp in outfielder Nolan Reimold, infielders Paul Janish and Jayson Nix and catchers Ryan Lavarnway and J.P. Arencibia.

Alvarez had a solid spring and is expected to help the Major League club at some point this season. The 26-year-old right fielder showcased his incredible arm and held his own at the plate in his first big league camp.

Parmelee hit seven homers and drove in 28 runs in 87 games for the Twins in 2014, and he had more success against left-handed pitchers, hitting .325 with an .859 OPS. Defensively, he spent most of his time at first base (33 games), right field (33) and left field (22). He hit .241 in 24 games for the O's this spring, hitting his first home run during Sunday's 4-2 split-squad win over the Blue Jays.

Roe picked up the save on Sunday and had a 5.91 ERA in the Grapefruit League.
