Baltimore Orioles Outright Pitcher

Earlier this week, Rico Garcia was designated for assignment. This led the 28-year-old to be placed on waivers, but he has since cleared them and has now been outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk as a result.

Garcia does not have the option to reject this outright assignment, as he has not been outrighted previously and does not have three years of MLB experience. As a result, he will be remaining with the Orioles organization as a depth piece.

Garcia appeared in six games for the Orioles this season, where he went 0-0 and sported a 4.50 ERA. He will now be aiming to earn a spot back on their 40-man roster, as it could be what leads to an eventual call-up. Yet, with the season inching closer to its completion, the chances of that happening are lower.
