O’s obtain infielder Danny Valencia from Red Sox

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles have acquired infielder Danny Valencia from the Boston Red Sox for cash.

The 28-year-old Valencia played in 44 games with Minnesota and Boston last season. He hit a combined .188 with three homers and 21 RBIs.

Valencia broke into the majors in 2010 with the Twins and had his best season in 2011, batting .246 with 15 homers and 72 RBIs in 154 games.

To make room on the 40-man roster, the Orioles designated infielder Joe Mahoney for assignment. Mahoney made his major league debut with Baltimore in 2012, going 0 for 4 in two games.

Lions’ Suh fined $30,000 for kick

on Texans’ QB

ALLEN PARK, Mich. — Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was fined $30,000 by the NFL on Wednesday, but says he didn’t kick Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub on purpose.

That’s why Suh insisted he doesn’t need to apologize to Schaub.

Suh spoke to reporters Wednesday for the first time since his left cleat connected with Schaub’s groin area in Detroit’s loss to Houston last Thursday.
