The Orioles have acquired outfielder Chris Roberson from the Phillies for a wad of cold, hard cash. Roberson played in 28 games for the Phillies last season and he was 8 for 28 (.286 avg, .596 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 1 RBI and 2 stolen bases. He has now played in 85 games in his major league career and he is 16 for 69 (.232 avg, .515 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 2 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. To make room on the roster for Roberson the Orioles have designated outfielder Jeff Fiorentino for assignment. The 24-year old outfielder last played in the majors in 2006 for the Orioles. He has played in 32 games in his major league career and he is 21 for 83 (.253 avg, .663 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 1 homer, 12 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.
