Orioles make flurry of roster moves Friday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/5/15) Among the flurry of moves made Friday by the Orioles were the promotion of infielder Rey Navarro and left-handed reliever Cesar Cabral from Triple-A Norfolk and the demotion of catcher Steve Clevenger and pitcher Mike Wright to the same team.
The 26-year-old Cabral has been lights-out this season with a 0.00 ERA and 25 strikeouts in 21 2/3 innings of relief. Left-handed hitters are batting just .120 against him.
Wright has certainly not been sent down due to performance. He pitched shutout ball in his first two starts and stands at 2-1 with a 2.96 ERA.
Orioles activate C Matt Wieters (elbow) from DL
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(6/5/15) Orioles catcher Matt Wieters, who has been on the disabled list for more than a year after undergoing Tommy John surgery, was activated by the team Friday and likely will serve as the team's designated hitter, per MASNSports.com.
Wieters, who did rehab assignments throughout Baltimore's farm system, should be a boost to an Orioles offense that has struggled recently. He was hitting .308 with five homers before going on the DL on May 10, 2014 with an elbow issue.
The Orioles optioned catcher Steve Clevenger to make room for Wieters' return.

|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/26/15) The Orioles recalled catcher Steve Clevenger from Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday. To clear a roster spot, catcher Ryan Lavarnway was designated for assignment.
Clevenger never appeared in a game for Baltimore before being demoted to the minors in early April. He hit .352 with with two home runs, three doubles and 14 RBI in 27 games. He also has 11 walks and 10 strikeouts.
"I'm excited," he said to MASN Sports. "I'm going to try and help the team anyway I can. Feeling good at the plate and I have been playing really well out there. I'm just excited to get out on the field and play here.
"I went down there on a mission," he said. "Coming into spring training this year, I wanted to focus more on my catching and I tried to do that. I went down there and played very well. Just tried to concentrate on my catching and helping the pitchers do what they can do best, and that's pitch and not worry about anything else. I was just playing solid defense down there."
Lavarnway appeared in just 10 games (eight starts) for Baltimore. He hit .107 (3 for 28) with one double, no home runs and no RBI.
Orioles' Steve Clevenger improving behind plate in Triple-A
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/18/15) Orioles catcher Steve Clevenger has produced encouraging reports from Triple-A manager Ron Johnson for his work behind the plate, a facet of his game the team wanted him to focus on improving, MASNSports.com reports.
"Clevenger's doing well down there. He's catching real well," manager Buck Showalter said. "Really like what R.J.'s been saying about him."
Clevenger has thrown out just 13 percent of base-runners at the major-league level, a mark which is less than half of the league average during his major-league career.
