Orioles released RHP Logan Ondrusek.
The right-hander is set to receive a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews on his injured pitching elbow and could be headed for Tommy John surgery. The O's made the decision to release him now so they won't have to pay his full salary. There's a chance they could look to bring him back on a minor league pact. Fri, Mar 17, 2017 09:13:00 AM

Logan Ondrusek will receive a second opinion on his right elbow from Dr. James Andrews.

Ondrusek didn't reveal what exactly the MRA on his elbow earlier this week revealed, only to say it wasn't what he hoped. It's pretty easy to read between the lines here, though. Tommy John surgery could be in Ondrusek's future.

Logan Ondrusek is day-to-day due to a sore elbow.

It doesn't sound like a major concern, but Ondrusek has had a hard time staying healthy this spring. He only recently got over an ankle issue. The veteran reliever appeared in seven games with the Orioles last season after starting the year in Japan.

Logan Ondrusek (ankle) is expected to resume throwing off a mound soon.

Ondrusek just said a day ago that he wasn't sure when he'd resume throwing, so he must have experienced a lot of improvement over the last 24 hours. The reliever rolled his ankle nearly a week ago, but he'll be fine.

Logan Ondrusek (ankle) said he's not sure when he will be cleared to resume throwing.

Ondrusek rolled his ankle last weekend in Orioles camp and still has some minor swelling. It's not a big issue here in late February, but the right-hander is fighting for a spot at the back end of the Baltimore bullpen and any missed Grapefruit League appearances will hurt his cause.

Ondrusek rolled his ankle on Saturday and still hasn't been cleared to return to mound work, but that should be coming soon. It's a very minor issue here in the early weeks of spring training.

Orioles re-signed RHP Logan Ondrusek to a one-year, $650,000 contract with a club option for 2018.

The 31-year-old right-hander appeared in seven games for the Orioles in 2016, compiling a 9.95 ERA, 1.90 WHIP and 4/3 K/BB ratio in 6 1/3 innings. He'll look to latch on elsewhere on a minor league deal.
