Orioles expected to DFA Atkins

 
Garrett Atkins may be designated for assignment by the Orioles to make room for Brad Bergesen and Koji Uehara, the Baltimore Sun 's Dan Connolly writes .

Atkins signed a one-year contract for $4.5 million in the offseason and has playing sparingly in the past month. He's hitting just .219/.282/.292 with a home run and nine RBI in 43 games for Baltimore.

Connolly also offers relievers Matt Albers and Frank Mata along with outfielder Lou Montanez as possible candidates to be cleared from the 25-man roster to make room for the two pitchers.
