The Orioles have acquired left-handed reliever Scott Barnes from the Cleveland Indians for cash considerations, the club announced Wednesday. Barnes, 27, spent the entire 2014 season with the Indians' Triple-A team in Columbus, Ohio, going 3-2 with a 3.69 ERA in 25 appearances, all but one in relief. Barnes held hitters to a .193 batting average, getting both left-handed (.191 average) and right-handed (.194) batters out with success. He averaged 9.9 strikeouts per nine innings, striking out 35 in 312/3 innings. In 22 major league appearances — all in relief with the Indians in the 2012 and 2013 seasons — Barnes is 0-1 with a 5.20 ERA. Barnes has no minor league options remaining, so he can't be outrighted to the minor leagues without clearing waivers. The Indians designated Barnes for assignment Sunday to create 40-man roster space. Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said in a text message that Barnes possesses "a good arm and sharp slider that he uses to get out both left-handed and right-handed hitters." The Orioles also officially announced Wednesday the signing of infielder Rey Navarro to a major league deal. Navarro, 24, has played both middle infield positions in the minors, but Orioles scouts like him as a second baseman.
