The Orioles today announced that they have selected the contract of INF CORD PHELPS from Triple-A Norfolk and placed INF MANNY MACHADO on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 12, with a right knee sprain.

Originally a 3rdround pick by Cleveland in 2008 out of Stanford University, Phelps is a lifetime .280/.368/.431 hitter in seven minor league seasons. He has played in 53 major league games since making his debut for Cleveland in 2011. Phelps will wear #38.

Machado, 22, has batted .278/.324/.431 with 12 home runs and 32 RBI in 82 games for the Orioles this season.

Wieters, 28, was placed on the 15-day disabled list on May 11 with a right elbow strain and had "Tommy John" surgery on June 17.
