Orioles Designate Danny Valencia, Select Cedric Mullins

The Baltimore Orioles have designated veteran infielder Danny Valencia for assignment, selecting the contract of outfielder Cedric Mullins, according to an official team announcement made on Friday.

Valencia, 33, has been a solid contributor for Baltimore this season, posting a .263/.316/.408 line, but with the O’s looking to a complete rebuild and youth movement, Baltimore likely thought it was time to move Valencia down to provide playing time for younger players.

With an easily digestible $1.2M salary this season, it is likely that teams will kick the tires on Valencia for a stretch run.

Mullins has posted a .267/.332/.425 slash line in Triple-A this season.
