Valaika cleared waivers and accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Valaika had served as the Orioles' preferred option at second base in July after Freddy Galvis (quadriceps) landed on the IL, but he was designated for assignment after he hit just .192 with four home runs, 21 RBI and 13 runs in 72 games this year. He was unable to land another spot on a 40-man roster and will remain in the organization.
