Hidalgo signed a minor league contract on Feb. 26, reported two days later and spent four days in uniform before leaving the team Saturday to be with his ailing wife. He never returned, and the Orioles released the frustrated outfielder Tuesday to allow him to pursue an opportunity in Japan.

"The way it was relayed to us through his agent was that he's not a guy that likes coming off the bench. He's a guy who wants to play everyday," Orioles vice president Jim Duquette said. "He didn't have the desire to keep playing if it wasn't an everyday job."

Even if he made the team, Hidalgo probably would have been a fourth or fifth outfielder.
