NEW YORK (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles made a series of roster moves Tuesday, activating infielder Chris Davis from the 15-day disabled list after he recovered from a slight tear in his right shoulder.
The Orioles put Davis in the starting lineup, batting eighth and playing third base, for Tuesday night’s game against New York at Yankee Stadium.
Davis was acquired from Texas with pitcher Tommy Hunter on July 30 for reliever Koji Uehara. Davis has hit .225 with one homer and three RBIs since the trade.
The Orioles also recalled infielder Josh Bell from Triple-A Norfolk and infielder Pedro Florimon from Double-A Bowie. They selected the contracts of right-hander Jeremy Accardo and lefty Clay Rapada from Norfolk.
Lefty Mark Hendrickson and infielder Blake Davis were designated for assignment.
