With Brian Roberts coming back tonight, infielder Steve Tolleson was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk.
We will be watching to see what Roberts does in his return; however, Tolleson did a decent job while up with the Orioles and had a few big hits. Tolleson was a victim of the numbers game, and since Ryan Flaherty is a Rule 5 guy, he can't be sent down.
I would imagine Tolleson will be back if an injury pops-up, or if there's a need for a reserve guy.
