The Orioles filled their 40-man roster by adding three pitchers, right-handers Parker Bridwell and Andrew Triggs and left-hander Chris Lee.
Bridwell was the biggest surprise of the three, and he’s the only one who is a product of the Orioles farm system.
The 24-year-old Bridwell, who was the team’s ninth round draft pick in 2010, has had his career slowed by injuries. It wasn’t until this year when he finally reached Double-A. Bridwell was 4-5 with a 3.99 ERA at Bowie.

Lee was acquired by the Orioles from Houston in May and was 3-6 with a 3.07 ERA at Frederick before earning a promotion to the Baysox, where he was 4-2 with a 3.08 ERA in seven starts.
Triggs, who was a Kansas City Royals product, was 0-2 with a 1.03 ERA in 43 games at Bowie.
Neither Lee or Triggs allowed a home run at Bowie in a combined 99 innings.
'We like the pitching depth we added to our roster today from the minors," Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette wrote in a text message.
"Andrew Triggs had a terrific year at Bowie and Chris Lee made a good first impression after coming to the Orioles in a trade. Parker Bridwell is an excellent athlete with very good secondary pitches who is coming into his own. All three could make a contribution to the 2016 club with some more seasoning."
Today is the final day the Orioles can add prospects to their 40-man roster in advance of the Dec. 10 Rule 5 draft.
The Orioles figure to make some deletions from the roster so that they can draft players in the Rule 5 draft.
