SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orioles reassigned top prospectChance Sisco to Minor League camp prior to Monday's home game against the Red Sox.
Sisco, who remained at Ed Smith Stadium on Monday, will head to the Minor League complex at Twin Lakes Park starting on Tuesday. The catcher will leave after making a great impression and staying in big league camp longer than many would have anticipated.
Sisco batted .292/.370/.500 in 17 games this spring, going 7-for-24 with two doubles, one homer, three runs scored and five RBIs. He's expected to start the season with Triple-A Norfolk.
Orioles outfielder Anthony Santander, one of the club's two Rule 5 Draft picks and its ninth-ranked prospect, is expected to start the season on the disabled list.
"[Santander] just started throwing," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said on Monday, "but looks like it's going to be tough for him to make the start of the season."
Santander, who had offseason right shoulder surgery, did not play the field this spring and has been dealing with some lingering elbow soreness. He did see some time at designated hitter, hitting two homers and seven RBIs in 14 spring games, posting a .250/.313/.464 line.
