Orioles Claim Gabino

The Orioles have claimed RHP Armando Gabino off waivers from the Minnesota Twins.

Grade: C –

I don’t know what to make of this one. Gabino is 26 and pitched mainly out of relief last year for AAA Rochester, although he did make seven starts. He was 6-4 with a 2.94 ERA over 98 innings, striking out 64 and walking 24. He also had two appearances with the Twins, accumulating in a 17.18 ERA over 3.2 innings. The O’s must like him as AAA depth with an outside shot at the Orioles bullpen at some point. Maybe we’ll turn around and try to pass him through waivers ourselves.
