Eveland clears waivers, outrighted to Norfolk

The Orioles announced Thursday afternoon that left-handed pitcher Dana Eveland has cleared waivers and has been outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk.

Eveland was designated for assignment on March 29 when the club claimed infielder Zelous Wheeler off of waivers from the Milwaukee Brewers. The 28-year-old Eveland was brought to Baltimore in a trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers for left-handed pitcher Jarret Martin and outfielder Tyler Henson at the Winter Meetings,

Eveland was 1-2 with a 3.46 ERA in six games (three starts) this spring and is expected to part of a Norfolk rotation that currently includes Brad Bergesen, Chris Tillman, Jason Berken, Armando Galarraga and Steve Johnson. It’s possible one of those pitchers will be bumped to the bullpen or Double-A to make room for Eveland, with a six-man rotation another possibility.
