The Orioles formerly signed Delmon Young on Friday designating catcher/first baseman Ryan Lavarnway for assignmnet.
Lavarnway has now been with four different organizations this winter and figures to land with a fifth shortly. The 27-year-old is a proven hitter at the minor league level but owns just a 208/.389/.370 batting line during his brief major league career. He will end up with someone for spring training.
Likewise the Cubs designated left handed reliever Mike Kickham for assignment.
Kickham was claimed off of waivers from the Giants a few weeks ago but sees his time on the Cubs 40-man roster end with the signing of Chris Denorfia.
