BALTIMORE -- While the Major League teams were competing, the Royals and the Orioles made a Minor League deal Thursday.

The Royals sent third baseman Brandon Wood from their Triple-A Omaha club to the O's Triple-A Norfolk team in exchange for cash. Wood was a part-time player for the Storm Chasers, hitting .264 in 16 games with two home runs and seven RBIs.


Wood, a first-round Draft pick by the Angels in 2003, was in the Royals' Major League Spring Training camp. He batted .323 in 17 games.
