The Orioles have shipped out utility player Oscar Salazar to the San Diego Padres in exchange for relief pitcher Cla Meredith. Salazar was out of options so he had to remain on the roster and could not be optioned down to the minor leagues without being placed on waivers. In that scenario, a team most likely would have put in a claim and received Salazar while the Orioles would have not gotten anything in return.
