Florimon claimed off waivers

DALLAS - The Twins claimed shortstop Pedro Florimon off waivers from the Orioles.

The Orioles needed to clear a spot on their 40-man roster for the Rule 5 draft.

Also, pitcher Pedro Viola cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk.

Florimon, who turns 25 on Saturday, went 1-for-8 for the Orioles in 2011, making his major league debut Sept. 10 at Toronto.
