LJ Hoes (pic) was optioned to Norfolk today by the Orioles leaving 48 player in camp. Hoes hit .320 this spring with two doubles in 25 plate appearances.
The 24-year old Hoes will head to Norfolk for his second season after putting up a .300/.374/.397/.771 line in 357 PAs last year there. He'll probably move around all three outfield positions as he tries to show he can be a solid 4th outfielder option.
