Wilkerson was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Wednesday.

The 29-year-old was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday and has now been removed from the 40-man roster. Wilkerson had an opportunity to secure the everyday role at second base with the Orioles, but he slashed .167/.211/.208 with a 39.5 percent strikeout rate in 31 games before being demoted.
