The Angels acquired veteran shortstop Jose Iglesias from the Orioles in a trade for minor league right-handers Garrett Stallings and Jean Pinto.
Starting second baseman Hanser Alberto was let go Wednesday by the Baltimore Orioles, who agreed to one-year contracts with catcher Pedro Severino and infielder Yolmer Sanchez. Severino gets $1,825,000, and Sanchez $1 million. Baltimore also reached one-year deals that avoided arbitration with right-hander Shawn Armstrong ($825,000) and infielder Pat Valaika, who will make $875,000 in the majors and $300,000 in the minors.
The Orioles have reportedly cut ties with infielder Hanser Alberto after he played a utility role for them over the 2019 and 2020 seasons.
