The Mariners roster shuffle continued Wednesday.
The team made a series of minor moves, claiming infielder Andy Wilkins off waivers from the Baltimore Orioles. To make room for Wilkins, the organization designated left-handed pitcher Edgar Olmos for assignment. The Mariners also announced that catcher John Hicks, who recently was designated for assignment, had been claimed off waivers by the Minnesota Twins.
Wilkins, 27, never played for the Orioles. He was a waiver claim from the Dodgers earlier in the offseason.
He played for two organizations in 2015, spending his time at Class AAA for Oklahoma City and Buffalo. He hit a combined .251 with 28 doubles, a triple, 18 homers and 79 RBI in 126 total games.
