Orioles release Loewen, outright 5 to Triple-A 2008-10-20
BALTIMORE (AP) - The Baltimore Orioles released pitcher Adam Loewen and outrighted five other players to Triple-A Norfolk on Monday.

The 24-year-old lefty was 0-2 with an 8.02 ERA in seven games for the Orioles. Loewen was placed on the disabled list on July 8 when he re-injured the stress fracture in his left elbow that ended his 2007 season.

Loewen is attempting a comeback as a position player.

The Orioles outrighted right-handers Randor Bierd and Rocky Cherry, infielder Brandon Fahey, outfielder Jeff Fiorentino and catcher Omir Santos to Triple-A Norfolk.

Bierd, 24, went 0-2 with a 4.91 ERA in 29 games with Baltimore. Cherry, 28, went 0-3 with a 6.35 ERA in 18 games. Fahey, 27, batted .226 with 12 RBIs in 58 games.
