The Baltimore Orioles claimed catcher Luis Martinez off waivers from the Texas Rangers.

Martinez, who appeared in 10 games in two different stints with the Rangers in 2012, was designated for assignment to make room for A.J. Pierzynski on the 40-man roster.

Also, catcher Eli Whiteside cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Round Rock. He was designated for assignment to make room for Jason Frasor on the roster.

Whiteside played in 12 games with the Giants last year and was claimed by the Rangers from Toronto on Dec. 12. Whiteside was invited for major league spring training as a non-roster invitee.
