BRADENTON, Fla. -- The Orioles continued to trim down their spring roster on Monday morning, optioning left-handed pitcher Tim Berry and catcher Michael Ohlman to Double-A Bowie and reassigning catcher Brian Ward to Minor League camp.

The moves put the Orioles at 53 players in Major League Spring Training, including 15 non-roster invitees.

Ohlman appeared in two games, going 2-for-3 with a pair of RBIs while Ward went 1-for-2 in three games. Berry allowed a run on two hits over three spring innings (two appearances).

Manager Buck Showalter was particularly impressed by Berry, who was protected on the 40-man roster this winter, and will be part of the Baysox rotation.

"Very intriguing what the future may hold for him," Showalter said. "I think it's going to be a big year for Berry. I think he's got a chance to really pop."
