FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (AP) - The Baltimore Orioles have acquired infielder Robert Andino from the Florida Marlins for pitcher Hayden Penn.

The Orioles announced the trade Wednesday.

Penn was 3-6 with a 9.31 ERA in 14 major league starts for the Orioles in 2005-06. The right-hander had 10 minor league starts in 2007 and spent 2008 at Triple-A Norfolk because of bone chips in his right elbow. He was 6-7 with a 4.79 ERA in 21 starts with Norfolk.

Andino has a .201 average (29-for-144) with two home runs and 12 RBIs in 79 games with the Marlins over four seasons. In 2008, Andino batted .206 (13-for-63) with two homers and nine RBIs.
