Orioles Designate Eveland, Outright Paulino

The Orioles have designated Dana Eveland for assignment and outrighted Ronny Paulino to Triple-A, the team announced. The moves create room on the roster for Miguel Socolovich and Taylor Teagarden. Paulino can refuse the assignment and become a free agent, but he would forfeit the remainder of his $1MM salary.

Eveland, 28, made two starts and a dozen relief appearances for Baltimore this season. He pitched to a 4.73 ERA with 5.0 K/9 and 3.6 BB/9 in 32 1/3 innings. His 2.21 ERA in 36 2/3 Triple-A innings earned him a call-up in the first place. The 31-year-old Paulino has hit .254/.266/.302 in 64 plate appearances for the O's this season while missing time with a fractured toe.

Paulino is a 5 plus guy can refuse to report (not declare free agency) Baltimore must release him or keep him. If the release him they owe him the balance of his salary.

 If Paulino leaves, he probably goes back to the Mets.

I understand the Mets were not happy with him last year.

The only reason Paulino made the team out of spring training was the injury to Teagarden.  Paulino showed up very late to camp and for a week or so nobody in the organization truly knew where he was and what was going on.  The joke in O’s camp was that Paulino’s car would make the team and Paulino wouldn’t– the car showed up a week before Paulino did.

Teagarden has more upside than Paulino and Exposito. Paulino had that banned substance issue while with the Fish and wasn’t exactly the most popular teamate anyway.

 I don’t know anything about Exposito, but the words “upside” and “Ronny Paulino” are mutually exclusive.

Is there a record for being DFA’d?  Dana Eveland and David Pauley must be close.

I was going to say—didn’t the Orioles DFA Eveland last year too?

Dan Eveland and Ronny Paulino, two guys who stole some money from the Pirates.

Teagarden just smacked an opposite-field 2 run walk off in the bottom of the 13th vs Tigers.  Congratulations!
