Escalona had been outrighted off the Orioles' 40-man roster, and he's decided to seek a job elsewhere rather than remain in the organization. The right-hander holds a 6.10 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 14/5 K/BB ratio over 20 2/3 Triple-A innings this season.

Edgmer Escalona (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment on Friday.

Edgmer Escalona will be shut down for at least the next three weeks due to right shoulder inflammation.

Escalona was surprisingly able to land a major league deal after he posted a 5.67 ERA over 37 relief appearances with the Rockies this past season. However, the Orioles have been intrigued by his success in winter ball and clearly see him as a piece of their bullpen for 2014.

Edgmer Escalona (calf) returned to action Friday.
