Orioles Claim Pitcher Off Waivers

The Baltimore Orioles have claimed Chris Vallimont off waivers from the Minnesota Twins.

Vallimont was designated for assignment by the Twins a few days ago, but he will now be a part of the Orioles' organization. He will be beginning his tenure there as a member of their Double-A affiliate in Bowie. 

Vallimont is a starting pitcher who is trying to make his way up to the majors. In seven games this season with Double-A Wichita, he has a 0-2 record and 9.95 ERA in seven games. Naturally, he will be aiming to rebound from his rough start. Perhaps the change of scenery will help him do just that.
