BALTIMORE (AP) The Baltimore Orioles have acquired infielder Yamaico Navarro from the Pittsburgh Pirates for minor league pitcher Jhondaniel Medina.
The 25-year-old Navarro hit .160 with one homer and four RBIs in 29 games with Pittsburgh last season. He is a career.279 hitter over seven minor league seasons.
Medina is a 19-year-old right-hander who pitched primarily in the Gulf Coast League in 2011.
To make room for Navarro on the 40-man roster, Baltimore designated right-hander Stu Pomeranz for assignment. Pomeranz had a 3.00 ERA in three games with Baltimore last season.
Also Friday, the Orioles agreed to 2013 contracts with infielder Alexi Casilla, outfielder Steve Pearce and catcher Taylor Teagarden, avoiding arbitration.
We all have our dreams and some of us aim higher than others.
What if you're a professional baseball player, and a 5-time All-Star at that?
Well, if you're Adam Jones you want to be the guy who manages the penalty box of a hockey game and the San Diego Gulls of the AHL accomodated his dream.
His list of duties includes the following:
If Adam controls the box like he controls the outfield, I'm sure he'll do just fine.
It looks like Orioles’ superstar slugger Mark Trumbo is staying in Baltimore.
After leading the majors with 47 home runs in 2016 during his first year with the Orioles, Trumbo and the team reportedly reached a deal with the free agent Thursday: three years for $37.5 million.
However, the deal is contingent on the outfielder/designated hitter passing a physical.

Last season, Trumbo, 31, maintained a .850 OPS and finished with 108 RBI, helping the Orioles get to the postseason for the third time in five years — also his first career playoff appearance. He also earned his second career All-Star nod.
Following the 2016 season, Trumbo rejected Baltimore’s one-year, $17.2 million qualifying offer.
Before joining the Orioles’ lineup, he spent time with the Angels — who drafted him in 2004 in the 18th round — the Diamondbacks and the Mariners, who then traded him in December of 2015.
