Outfielder Alejandro De Aza designated for assignment by Orioles


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/27/2015) The Orioles have designated outfielder Alejandro De Aza for assignment on Wednesday. De Aza has struggled this season to the tune of a .214/.277/.359 batting line with three home runs and seven. He also had 34 strikeouts compared to just seven walks in 103 at-bats. 

De Aza was acquired by the Orioles from the White Sox in August 2014. 

"We know he's capable of better and he'll probably be able to do that somewhere else, but we kind of got into a situation where we had to make a move," manager Buck Showalter said, per MASNSports.com. "It's not going to be the first time, either. We're going to have some more of those coming up, some tough ones with other people coming back to us. That's also why we had to acquire players for the depth that we've had to have for the first part of the season."

The move opens up a spot for infielder Ryan Flaherty, who was activated from the disabled list.
