The Baltimore Orioles purchased the contract of left-handed pitcher Dana Eveland and placed righty Matt Lindstrom on the 15-day disabled list with a right middle finger injury.
Eveland, 28, is 3-2 with a 2.21 ERA in six starts for Class AAA Norfolk this season. Lindstrom, 32, has a 1.29 ERA with 14 strikeouts in 14 innings for the Orioles.
To make room for Eveland on the 40-man roster, the Orioles designated infielder Zelous Wheeler for assignment.
