Orioles Designate Zelous Wheeler For Assignment

The Orioles have designated infielder Zelous Wheeler for assignment, according to Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun (via Twitter).  The O's placed right-hander Matt Lindstrom on the disabled list to make room on the 25-man roster for pitcher Dana Eveland and DFA'd Wheeler to make space on the 40-man.

Wheeler, 25, split time between Double-A and Triple-A this season and hit just .202/.288/.283 in 27 games.  For his minor league career, Wheeler owns a .268/.367/.402 slash line with most of his time coming at the Double-A level.
