BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Orioles look to add some muscle to their already powerful lineup.

The team announced Friday that they have selected the contract of OF Henry Urrutia and recalled INF Danny Valencia from Triple-A Norfolk.

To make room, OF Nolan Reimold has been placed on the 15-day disabled list and OF Chris Dickerson has been designated for assignment.

Urrutia, 26, has batted a combined .365/.427/.531 in 67 games with Double-A Bowie (52 games, .365/.433/.550) and Triple-A Norfolk (15 games, .367/.406/.467) in his first professional season.

He will wear #51 and become the 12th Cuban born player in Orioles franchise history when he makes his debut.
