The Baltimore Orioles have recalled infielder Jimmy Paredes after optioning Kevin Gausman last night. The Orioles optioned Gausman as another “paper” move in preparation of the September roster expansion.
Paredes will add another infielder to the Orioles who can play third base and second base. I do not see Paredes getting much playing time while the Orioles are in the playoff race.
Here is the Orioles press release.
