The Royals announced that they’ve claimed infielder/outfielder Jimmy Paredes off waivers from the Orioles. The 25-year-old Paredes was claimed by the Orioles (from the Marlins) just two days ago. Paredes’ departure from Baltimore’s 40-man roster makes room for right-hander Suk-Min Yoon, though the O’s have yet to officially announce his signing.
