Liddi was released by the Orioles on Friday, Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports. Liddi only appeared in one Grapefruit league game, but the Orioles simply did not have a place for the veteran in their organization. He'll try to latch onto another team looking for a versatile veteran for their minor league system.
Liddi signed a minor league contract with the Orioles, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports. Liddi has bounced around a few organizations during his career, including a stop in the Orioles organization in 2013 and, most recently, a stint with the Royals Double-A affiliate. While with Double-A Northwest Arkansas last season, the 27-year-old hit .297 with 39 doubles, 13 homers, and 56 RBI to help him post a .798 OPS. While the Italian-born righty might not make a huge impact with the major league club immediately, his ability to play first base, third base, and the corner outfield positions gives the Orioles depth at multiple positions.
Infielder Alex Liddi was added to the roster at Triple-A Albuquerque Wednesday, following the suspension of Miguel Olivo. Liddi was signed to a minor-league del by the Dodgers last week.
Former White Sox infielder Alex Liddi signed a minor-league deal with the Dodgers on Thursday, SB Nation reports. Liddi batted .171 in 76 at-bats in the minors. He will be reassigned to Triple-A Albuquerque.
The White Sox announced several minor-league roster moves prior to Monday's series opener against the Athletics in Oakland, ESPN Chicago reports. The team released left-hander David Purcey and infielder Alex Liddi. Right-hander Maikel Cleto was also outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte.
