iStockphoto/Thinkstock(BALTIMORE) -- The Baltimore Orioles acquired catcher Nick Hundley from the San Diego Padres on Saturday for left-handed reliever Troy Patton.

In 33 games with San Diego this season, the 30-year-old Hundley is batting .271 with one home run and three RBIs.

The Orioles are currently without two-time All-Star catcher Matt Wieters, who is sidelined with an elbow injury. No timetable has been set for his return.

The 28-year-old Patton was 0-1 with an 8.10 ERA in nine games this season with Baltimore. In 140 career games with the Orioles, Patton compiled a record of 5-2 with a 3.26 ERA.

Baltimore will also receive cash considerations from San Diego as part of the trade.
