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.

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.
