Terdoslavich batted .214/.254/.375 in 28 games with Atlanta in 2015. Originally selected by the Braves in the sixth round of the 2010 Draft, the 27-year-old switch-hitter has batted .280/.345/.451 with 156 doubles, 12 triples, 68 home runs and 335 RBIs in 604 career Minor League games. He has played in 92 career Major League games, hitting .221/.296/.324.

Terdoslavich is a graduate of Sarasota High School in Sarasota, Fla. -- home of Baltimore's Spring Training facility -- and is the nephew of former Major League player Mike Greenwell.

With the move, the Orioles' 40-man Major League roster is full.
