Orioles activate Sceroler

Two days after optioning left-hander Zac Lowther to Triple-A Norfolk, the Orioles filled out their 26-man roster by reinstating Rule 5 pick Mac Sceroler from the injured list prior to tonight’s series opener against the Mets at Camden Yards.

The Orioles also reinstated infielder Pat Valaika from the bereavement list and optioned infielder Ramón Urías to Norfolk.
