Lough DFA’ed, Clevenger recalled
The Orioles recalled catcher Steve Clevenger from Triple-A Norfolk on Friday while designating outfielder David Lough for assignment.
Clevenger, 29, has appeared in four games with the Orioles this season, going 5-for-11 at the plate. He was hitting .305/.375/.393 at Norfolk, where he was named an International League All-Star this season.
The 29-year-old Lough hit .202 in 76 games for Baltimore this season. He does not have any previous outright assignments so if he’s not claimed on waivers he could be sent to Triple-A Norfolk and return as a September call-up.
