Baltimore Orioles Designate Pitcher For Assignment

The Baltimore Orioles have designated Rico Garcia for assignment.

Garcia has appeared in six games with Baltimore this season, where he has a 0-0 record to go along with a 4.50 ERA. Overall, he has had mixed results when called upon by Baltimore, so perhaps this DFA isn't all too surprising. Now, he is set to hit the waiver wire where the rest of the league will have the chance to claim him.

In the minors this season, Garcia has been excellent, and that could be enough for another club to take a flyer on him. In 21 games split between Triple-A, Double-A, and Single-A+, he has a 2-1 record and 1.76 ERA.
