O's option McFarland to Triple-A Norfolk

MLB.com

BALTIMORE -- Seeking to add some infield insurance with Chris Davis' oblique injury, the Orioles optioned lefty T.J. McFarland to Triple-A Norfolk following Friday's game.

A corresponding roster move will be announced on Saturday, but it's expected to be a position player from Triple-A to help the O's as they wait to further evaluate Davis. The All-Star first baseman exited Friday's game after four innings with a left oblique injury, and the team is hopeful they got ahead of the injury.
