JUNE 22: Janish has accepted the assignment to Triple-A Norfolk and will remain in the organization, tweets Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com.
Janish has already cleared outright waivers, as Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun was among those to tweet. He’ll have three days to decide whether to accept an assignment to Triple-A.
The 33-year-old has seen scattered major league action in eight of the last nine seasons. All told, he owns a .216/.284/.289 batting line in 1,277 plate appearances at the game’s highest level. Janish had turned in a .329/.364/.356 slash in his 77 Triple-A plate appearances before being called up by Baltimore this year.
