Baltimore Orioles Acquire Two New Players

The Baltimore Orioles have bolstered their infield lineup by acquiring Liván Soto and Nick Maton, marking a strategic move to enhance their 40-man roster.

Soto, a 23-year-old infielder, was claimed off waivers from the Los Angeles Angels, adding a versatile left-handed hitter to the Orioles' roster.

Soto is known for his proficiency in playing multiple infield positions including second base, shortstop, and third base.

In his tenure with the Angels during the 2022 and 2023 seasons, Soto demonstrated his potential by maintaining a .375 batting average with a home run and nine RBIs across 22 games​​.

In a separate transaction, the Orioles also acquired utility man Nick Maton from the Detroit Tigers.

This move, along with the acquisition of Soto, indicates the Orioles' intention to deepen their infield options and add flexibility to their lineup.

Over his three-year MLB career, the 26-year-old holds a .208/.306/.361 triple-slash line, with 15 home runs, 63 RBIs, three stolen bases, and 58 runs scored across 179 games played.

The addition of these players to the Orioles' 40-man roster reflects the team's proactive approach in strengthening their squad and addressing specific needs within their infield positions​. Photo Credit: Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports
