The Baltimore Orioles are set to purchase the contract of infielder Bill Hall today and add him to their major league roster, according to Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun. Hall is being recalled to replace injured outfielder Nick Markakis.

This will mark Hall’s second stint with the Orioles this season. After being released by the New York Yankees in early April, Hall signed a minor league deal with the Orioles. Hall has collected two hits including a home run over his seven at-bats with the Orioles this season.

More important than his bat, Hall will provide the club with defensive flexibility. With Markakis hitting the DL for the first time in his career, Baltimore is left with only two true outfielders on their roster; Adam Jones and Endy Chavez. Hall will be able to help in this aspect as he has played all three outfield positions over the past few seasons.

Over his 21 games and 86 at-bats with the Orioles Triple-A affiliate this season, Hall has hit at a clip of .221/.272/.372. Over his 11 seasons in the majors the 32-year-old has a career line of .248/.308/.436.
