Cardinals acquired C Michael Ohlman from the Orioles for cash considerations.

Ohlman was designated for assignment by the O's last week to clear a 40-man roster spot for outfielder Travis Snider. Ohlman, 24, batted just .236/.310/.318 with two home runs in 113 games last season at Double-A. He did have a very good 2013 at High-A Frederick, but the former 11th-round pick will be nothing more than organizational depth for St. Louis.
Feb 3 - 4:32 PM

Orioles designated C Michael Ohlman for assignment.

They needed to make room for the addition of Travis Snider, and Ohlman was expendable since the O's are loaded with catchers on their 40-man roster. The 24-year-old hit .236/.310/.318 with two homers at Double-A last season.

Orioles optioned C Michael Ohlman to Double-A Bowie.

The Orioles also reassigned catcher Brian Ward to minor league camp. Ohlman, 23, hit .313/.410/.524 with 13 home runs in 361 at-bats last season in High-A.

Orioles prospect Michael Ohlman has been suspended 50 games for violating the minor league drug policy.

The 21-year-old catcher injured his shoulder in a car accident this spring and hadn't played in a game this year. Ohlman hit just .224/.320/.307 with four homers and 51 RBI in 105 games last season at Single-A Delmarva.
