Orioles Option Two Pitchers

The Baltimore Orioles have optioned pitchers Nick Vespi and Bruce Zimmermann to Triple-A Norfolk.

Vespi has posted a middling 4.21 ERA, a 1.36 WHIP and 28 strikeouts over 25.2 innings of work in the majors this season. He has five wins and has converted one save. 

We'll most likely see him back with the Orioles at some point this month.

The Orioles have also optioned pitcher Bruce Zimmermann. 

Zimmermann saved the Orioles from having to use a lot of arms yesterday after starter Jordan Lyles was scratched due to illness. However, it didn't go so well, as Zimmermann allowed eight hits, five earned runs and one walk while striking out three over six innings. 

On the season, the twenty-seven-year-old holds a lackluster 5.99 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 49 strikeouts over 73.2 innings of work. He'll wait for his next opportunity in the majors.
