Orioles claim Jimmy Paredes off waivers


The Orioles have added depth to their outfield, which has been a position of need for them this off season.

Multiple sources reported that Baltimore claimed utility man Jimmy Paredes off waivers from the Miami Marlins Saturday afternoon. Paredes had been taken off of waivers by Miami from Houston, where he played all three seasons of his major league career thus far.

Last year, with Houston, Paredes played in 48 games manning right field, second base and third base. Over three years, totally 118 games, Jimmy is a .234/.274/.311 hitter.
