Orioles option Brach
The Baltimore Orioles have optioned right-handed pitcher Brad Brach to Triple-A Norfolk. The Orioles acquired Brach this winter for minor leaguer Devin Jones. Brach is a relief pitcher and still had options so he was sent down despite having a really solid spring training.
Brach has put up some solid 3.70 era in his first three Major League seasons. Last season Brach had a 3.19 era in 31 innings pitched.
The Orioles will likely need Brach at some point this season.
Here is the Orioles press release.
