BALTIMORE: Steve Trachsel, P, DFA

New, 32 comments

The inevitable has finally happened - Steve Trachsel has been designated for assignment, ostensibly for the purposes of giving him his outright release.

From The (Baltimore) Sun :

The Orioles announced today that they have designated right-handed pitcher Steve Trachsel for assignment and selected the contract of first baseman Oscar Salazar from Triple-A Norfolk.

Trachsel, 37, was 2-5 with an 8.39 ERA in 10 games (8 starts) this season.

Salazar, 29, has a .311 batting average with seven home runs and 44 RBIs in 63 games for the Tides. He appeared in eight major league games with Detroit in 2002 and was signed by the Orioles as a minor league free agent in November 2006.

I would say "More as it becomes available...", but really, what is there to add?
