 BALTIMORE (AP) - The Baltimore Orioles have acquired catcher Nick Hundley from the San Diego Padres in a trade for left-handed reliever Troy Patton.
The 30-year-old Hundley hit .271 with a home run and three RBIs in 33 games with the Padres this season. The Orioles are currently operating without starting catcher Matt Wieters, who's on the disabled list with a strained right elbow.
Patton was 0-1 with an 8.10 ERA in nine appearances with Baltimore. He missed April while serving a 25-game suspension for testing positive for a banned amphetamine last year.
The Orioles also received cash considerations from San Diego in the deal, announced Saturday.
With Patton off the roster and Hundley not yet with the team, Baltimore recalled infielder Steve Lombardozzi from Triple-A Norfolk before Saturday's game against Cleveland.
