BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles have claimed outfielder Sam Hilliard off waivers from the Atlanta Braves.

The Orioles announced the move Wednesday. They also designated right-hander Joey Krehbiel for assignment.

The 29-year-old Hilliard was limited to 40 games for Atlanta this season because of a right heel injury. He hit .236 with three home runs. He spent his first four big league seasons with Colorado and hit a career-high 14 homers in 2021 for the Rockies.
