HUNTINGTON - The Baltimore Orioles designated former Marshall University pitcher Dan Straily for assignment on Thursday.
Strailey, 30 and a right-hander, struggled in 47 2/3 innings with Baltimore, which signed him as a free agent after the Miami Marlins released him on March 25. Strailey went 2-4 with a 9.82 earned run average and allowed a league-high 22 home runs.
Oakland selected Straily in the 24th round of the 2009 Major League Baseball Draft. He debuted with the A's in 2012 and was traded to the Chicago Cubs in 2014. In 2015, Chicago dealt Straily to Houston, which one year later traded him to San Diego. The Cincinnati Reds selected Straily off waivers from the Padres on April 1, 2016 and he turned in the best season of his career, going 14-8 with a 3.76 ERA.
Cincinnati swapped the former Thundering Herd hurler to Miami on Jan. 19, 2017 in a deal that brought the Reds pitchers Luis Castillo and Austin Brice, as well as outfielder Zeke White.
The Orioles have 10 days to trade or release Straily before he becomes a free agent if no other team claims him off waivers.
