Orioles Claim Zelous Wheeler, Designate Dana Eveland

The Baltimore Orioles have claimed infielder Zelous Wheeler off of waivers from the Milwaukee Brewers, according to the teams. In a corresponding move, the Orioles have designated Dana Eveland for assignment to make room for on the 40-man. Wheeler will be optioned to Triple-A.

Wheeler, a 25 year-old from Alabama, was drafted in the 19th round of the 2007 draft. In five minor league seasons, Wheeler has compiled an o-k .271 / .371 / .408. This fulfills the Orioles' obligation to try at least one questionable/average/terrible infielder per month. That said, his On-Base is sound and he could provide value to the club if he sees time.

Eveland, a 28 year-old lefty, has 360 innings pitched over the course of seven seasons as a pro. He's seen his number of teams, too: six teams in seven years, including Oakland, Milwaukee, Arizona, Pittsburg, Los Angeles (Dodgers), and Toronto. His career ERA is 5.52 and he's compiled -1 win above replacement (which explains his numerous stops).
