ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles have reinstated outfielder Lou Montanez from the 15-day disabled list and optioned him to Triple-A Norfolk.

The move was made before Friday night's game against Tampa Bay.

Montanez had been on the disabled list since June 26 with a strained left oblique.
