LHP Kelvin De La Cruz was designated for assignment to make room for INF David Adams. The lefty, acquired early in the offseason from Texas, was contending for a relief spot in a bullpen with talented, young left-handers in place.
INF David Adams was claimed off waivers from the Cleveland Indians. Adams, who plays both second and third base, will provide some insurance for the Orioles, who are awaiting the return of start 3B Manny Machado from knee surgery. Adams batted .192 with two home runs and 13 RBIs in 43 games with the New York Yankees in 2013.
