Roar from 34's Long Shot Gets Shot Down

So long, Fredy Deza, we hardly knew ye ... but we tried.

Roar from 34's spring training "Long Shot to Root For" doesn't make the cut.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP)—Prized pitching prospects Chris Tillman, Jake Arrieta and Brian Matusz were among 12 players the Baltimore Orioles reassigned to minor league camp on Saturday.

Joining right-handers Tillman and Arrieta at the minor league complex in Sarasota will be right-handers Fredy Deza and Ryan Keefer; catchers Jose Reyes and Adam Donachie; and infielder Craig Brazell.

Matusz, a left-hander who was the fourth overall pick in last summer’s first-year player draft, was among five players on the 40-man roster to be reassigned. The others were right-handers Chorye Spoon, David Hernandez and Jim Hoey, and left-hander Troy Patton.

The moves leave Baltimore with 56 players in camp."
