Orioles claim Steve Pearce off waivers

Joy R. Absalon-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Baltimore claims the first baseman from the Yankees just a few days after his DFA.

The Baltimore Orioles claimed first baseman/outfielder Steve Pearce off waivers from the New York Yankees on Saturday, the team has announced:

The move from New York to Baltimore will mark Pearce's second stint with the Orioles this season. The 29-year-old Pearce began the year with the Yankees, then had his contract purchased by the Orioles in early June. Pearce appeared in twenty-eight games for Baltimore before moving on to Houston and then back to New York in late August.

The Yankees designated Pearce and pitcher Justin Thomas for assignment earlier this week to make room on the roster for Brett Gardner and David Aardsma.

Overall, Pearce is batting .239/.328/.377 with four home runs in sixty-one games on the season. As he was picked up well beyond the August 31 deadline, Pearce will not be eligible for Baltimore's playoff roster.
