The Orioles have released outfielder Jay Gibbons. Gibbons was linked to HGH shipments which he admitted he received and that led the Orioles to believe that he wasn’t good enough to make the team this season. He played in 84 games for the Orioles last year and he was 62 for 270 (.230 avg, .620 OPS) with 28 runs scored, 6 homers and 28 RBIs. Gibbons played all 779 games of his major league career with the Orioles and he was 724 for 2,787 (.260 avg, .767 OPS) with 348 runs scored, 121 homers and 405 RBIs. The Orioles won’t miss Gibbons at all in 2008.
