1057topper Orioles Cut C Teagarden, Adds Cs Clevenger, Snyder

NEW YORK (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles have shuffled catchers, cutting Taylor Teagarden and promoting Steve Clevenger and Chris Snyder from Triple-A.

The Orioles also brought back pitcher Wei-Yin Chen to start Sunday against New York at Yankee Stadium. The left-hander is 7-7 with a 3.76 ERA, and the Orioles sent him to their Gulf Coast affiliate last week to create roster space.

Teagarden and outfielder Eric Thames were designated for assignment.

Teagarden, 29, hit .167 with two home runs and five RBIs in 23 games for Baltimore. Thames was acquired from Seattle on June 30 and was in the minors.

Clevenger was obtained on July 2 from the Chicago Cubs in a multi-player trade. He hit .199 with one homer and 16 RBIs for the Cubs.

Snyder, 32, hit .118 in six games for Baltimore this year. He also has played for Arizona, Pittsburgh and Houston.
