Baltimore Orioles, Toronto Blue Jays

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Outfielder Dwight Smith Jr. has been acquired by the Baltimore Orioles from the Toronto Blue Jays for international signing bonus pool allocation.

Smith hit .293 with two home runs and nine RBI in 47 games with Toronto over the past two seasons.

The 26-year-old is the son of former major leaguer Dwight Smith Sr., who played for the Orioles in 1994.

To make room for Smith on the 40-man roster, Baltimore designated 30-year-old left-hander Josh Osich for assignment on Friday.

Baltimore acquired Osich off waivers from the San Francisco Giants on Feb. 19. Osich is 6-5 with a 5.01 ERA in 160 games with the Giants over the last four seasons.
