BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles have claimed right-hander Pedro Strop on waivers from the Texas Rangers.

Strop was 0-1 with a 3.72 ERA in 11 games with the Rangers. He is expected to join the Orioles during their series in Tampa Bay this weekend.

Originally signed by the Rockies as a non-drafted free agent in January 2002, Strop spent the first four years of his professional career as a shortstop before becoming a pitcher in 2006.

The Orioles also purchased the contracts of pitchers Rick Vandenhurk and Kyle Hudson from Triple-A Norfolk. Both joined the team Thursday for Baltimore’s game against Toronto.
