Dana Eveland has signed a one-year contract with the Hanwha Eagles of the Korean Baseball Organization.

Eveland will make $675,000 guaranteed with an additional $225,000 available through incentives. It's a nice contract for the 29-year-old, who was likely headed for a minor league deal this offseason.

Dana Eveland has elected free agency.

Eveland posted a 4.73 ERA over 12 games -- two starts -- this season for the Orioles. The soon-to-be 29-year-old will now look to catch on elsewhere.

Orioles sent LHP Dana Eveland outright to Triple-A Norfolk.

Orioles designated LHP Dana Eveland for assignment.

It's the third time this season he's been designated. Eveland was only up for a day this time around and didn't pitch. He'll almost surely clear waivers.

Orioles purchased the contract of LHP Dana Eveland from Triple-A Norfolk.

Eveland will add depth to a Baltimore bullpen that was needed for 6 1/3 innings on Wednesday night. The 28-year-old left-hander has a 4.73 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in 32-plus frames this season in the major leagues.

Orioles sent LHP Dana Eveland outright to Triple-A Norfolk.

Eveland was designated for assignment by the O's over the weekend and passed through waivers with ease. He owns a 5.46 career ERA and a 1.67 career WHIP.

Orioles designated LHP Dana Eveland for assignment.

It was largely a procedural move, as the Orioles needed a 40-man roster spot for Taylor Teagarden. Eveland seems likely to pass through waivers and return to the Triple-A Norfolk roster.

Dana Eveland was pounded in Saturday's loss to the Indians, allowing five runs on six hits in 3 2/3 innings.

Eveland did manage to record five strikeouts while walking two, but he was mostly very hittable. He has compiled an underwhelming 4.11 ERA in 30 2/3 innings this season and can continue to be ignored for fantasy purposes Thursday against the Angels.

Dana Eveland will start Saturday against the Indians.

Eveland ultimately got the nod over Tommy Hunter. The 28-year-old left-hander has a 3.00 ERA over one start and 10 relief appearances this year, despite an underwhelming 13/11 K/BB ratio in 27 innings. He can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Dana Eveland is the favorite to start Saturday's game against the Indians.

It's down to him and Tommy Hunter, but with the Indians hitting .216 against left-handed pitching this season, Eveland is likely to get the nod. He holds a 3.24 ERA and 1.32 WHIP over 10 appearances -- one start -- this season for the O's and can be ignored for fantasy purposes.

The Orioles will place Dana Eveland on the paternity leave list Tuesday.

He'll miss the series against the Angels in order to be with his wife. It's not clear at this point how will replace him on the roster.
Sun, Jun 24, 2012 11:04:00 AM

Dana Eveland will be placed on the paternity leave list in the next few days.

Eveland's wife is due to give birth on June 26, so he could leave the team any day now. A player can remain on the paternity leave list for 24-72 hours.

Dana Eveland walked six against the Rays on Friday, in his first start of the season with the Orioles.

Despite the wildness, he only allowed three runs on five hits over his six innings of work, striking out two in the process. It’s unlikely that he showed enough to warrant another turn in the rotation, but if the Orioles think otherwise he’ll take on the Royals in Kansas City on Wednesday.
Fri, May 11, 2012 09:51:00 PM

Orioles recalled LHP Dana Eveland from Triple-A Norfolk.

He'll get the ball Friday against the Rays. Eveland has posted a 2.21 ERA in 36 2/3 innings this year for Norfolk but holds a 5.52 career ERA, 1.69 career WHIP and 5.9 career K/9 in the bigs, so he can safely be avoided in fantasy leagues.
