Baltimore Orioles Place Pitcher On Waivers After Brief Stint With Team

The Baltimore Orioles recently made a series of roster moves to address their team needs.

One notable decision was the designation for assignment of right-handed pitcher Reed Garrett.

After being optioned to Triple-A, Garrett's removal from the Orioles' 40-man roster became necessary. Although Garrett had shown promising performance numbers at Triple-A Norfolk, he encountered difficulties during his recent appearances for the Orioles.

In a corresponding move, the Orioles added experienced catcher José Godoy to their roster.

This decision was prompted by injuries in the catcher position, prompting the need for a reliable backstop. Godoy, who had been playing in Triple-A Norfolk, had his contract selected by the Orioles to fill the void left by Garrett's departure.

In just two appearances with the Orioles, Garrett was lit up for seven hits and three earned runs across 2.2 innings of work.

However, in the minors this season, the 30-year-old has recorded a shimmering 1.59 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and 27 strikeouts over 22.2 innings and 19 appearances. He's also converted three saves.
