Orioles' Johnny Giavotella: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giavotella will begin the season with Triple-A Norfolk, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

The 29-year-old was in the running for a reserve infield spot with Baltimore, but his .701 OPS ultimately wasn't enough to warrant a spot on the 40-man roster being opened up for him. Giavotella will likely spend a good amount of time in the minors, although his major-league experience could help him be one of the first players called up if someone in the major-league infield gets injured or falters significantly.

Orioles' Johnny Giavotella: Fine after taking liner off hand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giavotella says he's completely fine after taking a line drive off his palm in Friday's Grapefruit League game, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

He stayed in the game after the incident and said it was pretty painful but "nothing I couldn't play through." Expect the veteran infielder to continue getting plenty of at-bats with the absences of Jonathan Schoop and Manny Machado, both of whom are competing in the World Baseball Classic. Giavotella is competing for a reserve infield spot on the Baltimore roster this spring.

Orioles' Johnny Giavotella: Signs minor league contract with Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giavotella agreed to a minor league deal with the Orioles on Wednesday, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

The 29-year-old spent the better part of the past two seasons with the Angels big league club, slashing .267/.305/.375 over 869 plate appearances as their primary second baseman. Despite his below average glove, he offers the Orioles much needed infield depth and will compete for a bench spot in spring training.

Angels' Johnny Giavotella: Clears waivers, headed to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giavotella cleared waivers Sunday and has been outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Giavotella was designated for assignment on Saturday, but went unclaimed through the team's waivers and is no longer a member of the team's 40-man roster. The team intends to evaluate a couple other options at second base, but that doesn't rule out a return to the majors for Giavotella at some point.

Johnny Giavotella: Cut by Angels
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Giavotella was cut by the Angels on Saturday, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The Angels, who began Saturday with the fourth-worst winning percentage in the league, are clearly planning for 2017. Giavotella is the third position player from the Opening Day roster to be let go, joining Daniel Nava and Craig Gentry. In a corresponding move, the Angels recalled infielder Kaleb Cowart from Triple-A Salt Lake. Manager Mike Scioscia said Cowart, Cliff Pennington and Gregario Petit will share the playing time at second base.
