The Baltimore Orioles have designated 29-year old righty reliever Odrisamer Despaigne for assignment. Despaigne pitched in 16 games (0 starts) for the Orioles this year and he was 0-2 with a 5.60 ERA and a 1.72 WHIP. He gave up 32 hits and 15 walks while whiffing 17 batters in his 27 1/3 innings for the Orioles this year. He has now pitched in 66 games (34 starts) in his first three years in the show and he is 9-18 with a 4.84 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP. This isn’t going to hurt the Orioles too much moving forward, as Despaigne didn’t pitch too well for them this year.
UPDATE: (9/15/2016) – The Orioles have lost Odrisamer Despaigne on waivers to the Miami Marlins.
