    • Valaika was claimed off waivers by the Diamondbacks on Thursday. Valaika was designated for assignment by the Orioles last Friday after posting a .190 batting average and one home run over 40 major-league games with the Rockies in 2019. He had a strong showing at the Triple-A level with a .320/.364/.589 slash line with 22 home runs, but he'll need to show more consistency against higher-end competition if he hopes to secure a major-league roster spot.

    • Valaika was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Friday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports. Baltimore claimed Richard Urena off waivers Friday, and Valaika was sent to waivers to make room on the 40-man roster. He spent the 2019 season with the Rockies, struggling to a .190 average to go along with four RBI and seven walks.

    • Valaika was claimed off waivers by the Orioles on Wednesday. The 27-year-old was effective in the minors in 2019, hitting .320/.364/.589 with 22 home runs in 84 games at the Triple-A level, but he couldn't translate his success to the majors, even though he got to play his home games at Coors Field. In 40 major-league games last season, Valaika hit .190/.256/.316 with 34 strikeouts. While he has some defensive versatility, Valaika will likely only fill a major-league bench role in Baltimore at best unless he can turn things around.

    • Valaika was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday. Valaika made the Rockies' Opening Day roster but hasn't played in the majors since before the All-Star break. The 26-year-old went 6-for-47 (.128 average) before his last demotion, but he fared better at Triple-A with a .953 OPS in 84 games. He'll start at second base and bat seventh Sunday versus the Pirates.

    • Valaika was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Valaika recorded a wRC+ of 9 in 133 plate appearances last season and has managed to get even worse in 53 plate appearances this year, hitting .128/.226/.213, good for a wRC+ of 5. There's little reason to believe that he'll be an interesting fantasy option when he returns to the big leagues, even at Coors Field. Kyle Freeland was recalled in a corresponding move.
