Bourn is not traveling with Triple-A Norfolk after utilizing the opt-out clause in his contract Tuesday, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports.

The Orioles now have 24 hours to either send the veteran to the big leagues or to grant him his release from the team. As a roster formality, Bourn was sent down to Low-A Aberdeen to clear space on the Tides' roster, but more likely than not, he'll likely be heading into free agency. More information on this should be revealed in the next day or so.
