The Orioles announced Sunday that they have recalled infielder infielder Danny Valencia from Triple-A Norfolk.

Valencia is batting .200/.243/.443 (14-for-70) in 24 games for the Orioles this season and will serve as the designated hitter and bat seventh on Sunday afternoon.

He takes the place of right-handed pitcher Steve Johnson, who was optioned back to Norfolk following Saturday’s loss.
