Berry (back) appeared in a minor-league game Thursday, the Boston Globe reports. He went 2-for-2 with a homer and played three innings, one at each outfield position.

Berry has signed a minor league contract with the Red Sox, SB Nation's Chris Cotillo reports.

Berry compiled a respectable .285/.382/.367 batting line with 25 steals in 112 games with the Orioles' Triple-A Norfolk affiliate last season, but his ceiling as a Quad-A player is pretty well established at this point. The 30-year-old has little-to-no pop in his bat and figures to once again play out the season as organizational depth in the minors.

Berry was released Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

With the addition of Ryan Lavarnway to the roster Tuesday, Baltimore released the 30-year-old, who appeared in 10 major league games last season. He spent the bulk of the year at Triple-A Norfolk, hitting .285 with 35 RBI in 365 at-bats.

Berry will be added to the Orioles' roster Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Berry will provide the Orioles with another body in the outfield, but the likelihood of playing time is low given the loaded nature of the outfield. The 29-year-old hit .285/.382/.367 at Triple-A Norfolk this season and will look to push the Orioles into the playoffs. The team will need to make a corresponding move to put Berry on the 40-man roster.

Orioles reassigned OF Quintin Berry and INF Alexi Casilla to minor league camp.

Quintin Berry led off and went 2-for-3 with a double, two runs scored and a stolen base in Wednesday's game against the Twins.

Berry hit just .191 while bouncing between the Royals, Red Sox and Tigers' Triple-A teams last year, but the 29-year-old is trying to win a job with the Orioles as a non-roster invite to camp. Berry's best asset is his speed -- even with the miserable batting average, he still managed to steal 30 bases in the minors in 2013 -- something that the O's might have a use for on their bench. Still, it'll be an uphill climb for him to make the team at this point.
