No surprises here.
Gregg is hoping to catch on with another team and the Orioles couldn't come up with a trade partner over the winter or during the season. He figured to be cut loose after they designated him for assignment Tuesday.
Gregg went 3-2 with a 4.74 ERA in 40 appearances for the Orioles this season. He allowed six runs (seven earned) in his last five games over 4 1/3 innings.
The Orioles will absorb the remainder of the $5.8 million on Gregg's contract for this season. They held a $6 million option for 2013.
Adams, a second-round pick in 2006, batted .224/.312/.353 with four homers and 20 RBIs in 65 games with the Tides this season.
