Bill Hall has cleared waivers and the Baltimore Orioles have outrighted the 32-year-old to Triple-A Norfolk, according to Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com. Hall was designated for assignment this weekend to make room for Steve Pearce.

The O’s designated Hall just a day after he was recalled to replace injured outfielder Nick Markakis. Hall made it into one game with the Orioles before once again being demoted to the minors, going 0-2 with a pair of strikeouts and a walk.

Hall will rejoin the Orioles Triple-A affiliate, the Norfolk Tides, where he has hit at a clip of .221/.272/.372 with seven extra base hits and 10 RBIs over his 86 at-bats. Hall has also appeared in a total of seven games this season for the Orioles, going 2-9 with a home run and five walks over that span.

Baltimore values Hall because of his defensive versatility. Hall has played all over the infield in Triple-A and has manned both corner outfield positions for the Orioles this season.
