Orioles released OF Michael Bourn.

Bourn exercised his opt-out Tuesday after the O's couldn't find a spot for him on the major league roster. The veteran outfielder was batting .220/.373/.317 in 51 plate appearances this season with Triple-A Norfolk. Again a free agent, he'll likely have to settle for another minor league deal.

Dylan Bundy struck out seven and held the Twins to two runs over seven frames but took a loss Tuesday.

He walked three and served up a solo homer to Brian Dozier, but it was a nice bounce-back showing from Bundy after he had his first non-quality start of the season the last time out. This was just the fourth time in 10 starts that he’s struck out more than three batters. He’ll get the Yankees next.

Manny Machado struck out once in four hitless at-bats in Tuesday's loss to the Twins.

Ervin Santana limited the Orioles to two singles in a shutout. Machado has slugged six home runs this month and has 10 on the season, but his average is sitting at a disappointing .218.

Orioles recalled LHP Jayson Aquino from Triple-A Norfolk.

Aquino has a 9.00 ERA this year in the majors and a 5.13 ERA at the Triple-A level. No matter what role he fills, the 24-year-old left-hander carries no fantasy relevance in Baltimore.

According to Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com, Michael Bourn has exercised the opt-out in his minor league contract with the Orioles.

The Orioles now have to decide whether to add him to the major league roster. Bourn, 34, is batting just .220 (9-for-41) through 11 games with Triple-A Norfolk. He'll likely end up hitting the free agent market.

Orioles optioned RHP Stefan Crichton to Triple-A Norfolk.

Crichton has allowed six earned runs on 15 hits over 8 1/3 innings of relief this season at the major league level. He's being replaced on the O's active roster by left-hander Jayson Aquino.

Orioles sent C Francisco Peña outright to Triple-A Norfolk.

Peña cleared waivers after being designated for assignment last week. The 27-year-old has appeared in 17 games with the Orioles over the past two seasons and will continue to provide depth behind the plate in the minors.

Ubaldo Jimenez was pounded for six runs in four-plus innings by the Twins on Monday.

The Orioles are going to have to do better than this; Jimenez is sporting a 7.11 ERA and a 32/25 K/BB ratio over 42 2/3 innings. This is the last year of his four-year contract, so the Orioles need not be so patient here.

Adam Jones clobbered a three-run homer off the Twins' Kyle Gibson on Monday.

That's three homers in five games for Jones. This one gave him his first multi-RBI game since April 24.

Orioles activated RHP Gabriel Ynoa from the 10-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Norfolk.

Ynoa is over the hamstring issue that sent him to the DL earlier this month, but he'll try to work his way back up through the minors. The righty has posted a 6.65 ERA at Norfolk this season but threw six shutout innings in a spot start with the O's.

Ryan Flaherty (shoulder) will receive a platelet-rich plasma injection Monday.

The Orioles are saying only that he'll be sidelined for more than the minimum 10 days, and it seems likely to be quite a bit longer than that. Flaherty has been bothered by a right shoulder issue since spring training and was finally put on the DL Sunday.

Ryan Flaherty could be given a platelet-rich plasma injection in his ailing right shoulder.

The Orioles are still trying to determine whether the strain Flaherty is dealing with is more in his lat or his rotator cuff. Either way, he'll be sidelined for a minimum of two weeks if he receives the injection and in all likelihood longer than that.

Orioles recalled RHP Tyler Wilson from Triple-A Norfolk.

He'll replace Miguel Castro on the active roster. Wilson owns a 4.91 ERA and 5/3 K/BB ratio over 11 innings with the Orioles this season and will operate in middle relief.
Mon, May 22, 2017 03:11:00 PM

Manny Machado (hand) is in Monday's lineup against the Twins.

Machado was hit in the left hand by a pitch on Sunday, but he never had to leave the game. The Orioles sent him for X-rays just to be on the safe side, but it appears that there's no reason for concern.
Mon, May 22, 2017 03:09:00 PM

Orioles optioned RHP Miguel Castro to Double-A Bowie.

The 22-year-old right-hander was only with the club for a couple of days as an extra bullpen arm. He'll continue to provide organizational bullpen depth in the minor leagues.
