LOS ANGELES -- Corner man Andy Wilkins was claimed off waivers by the Orioles on Sunday, ending the left-handed slugger's tenure with the Dodgers.

Wilkiins was designated for assignment on Thursday to make room on the 40-man roster for Corey Seager.

The Dodgers acquired Wilkins from the Blue Jays on May 3 for cash considerations, and the 26-year-old hit .249/.307/.472 with 18 home runs and 25 doubles in 105 games with Triple-A Oklahoma City. Wilkins started 64 games at first base for Oklahoma City this season, and also started 11 games at third base, eight games in left field and one more in right field.

Wilkins, who led the International League with 30 home runs in Triple-A in 2014, saw time in the majors with the White Sox in 2014, going 6-for-43 (.140) with two doubles, two RBI, two walks and 22 strikeouts.

To make room for Wilkins on their 40-man roster, Baltimore designated left-handed pitcher Cesar Cabral for assignment.

For those wondering, yes Wilkins will count for old friend status.
