The Orioles have released outfielder Travis Snider, MASN’s Roch Kubatko reports. The club had designated him for assignment on August 7.

Snider compiled a poor .237/.318/.341 triple-slash line with three home runs and 20 RBI in 236 plate appearances. The Orioles upgraded their outfield, acquiring Gerardo Parra and Junior Lake at the trade deadline, which left Snider on the outside looking in. Lake, however, was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday to make room for Henry Urrutia, coming up from Norfolk.

The O’s also purged outfielder David Lough on Friday.
