Orioles reinstate RHP Chris Tillman from 15-day DL; INF Yamaico Navarro optioned to Triple-A Norfolk

The Orioles today announced that they have reinstated RHP CHRIS TILLMAN from the 15-day disabled list and optioned INF YAMAICO NAVARRO to Triple-A Norfolk.

Tillman, 24, was placed on the DL on March 28, retroactive to March 22, with a left abdominal strain.

Navarro, 25, was recalled yesterday but did not play.  He was acquired from Pittsburgh on November 30, 2012 in exchange for minor league RHP JHONDANIEL MEDINA.  Navarro batted .276/.417/.379 in 29 spring training at-bats for the Orioles after hitting .279/.366/.491 in 66 games with Triple-A Indianapolis last season and going 8-for-50 with the Pirates.
