Blue Jays released LHP Juan Oramas.

Oramas was claimed off waivers from the Padres back in December, but the Blue Jays designated him for assignment over the weekend. The 24-year-old southpaw had a 4.75 ERA, 1.54 WHIP, and 116/51 K/BB ratio in 136 1/3 innings last season between Double- and Triple-A. He's now free to seek an opportunity elsewhere.

Blue Jays designated LHP Juan Oramas for assignment.

Oramas had already been optioned to Triple-A earlier in the spring, but the Jays needed to create room on the 40-man roster. Provided he passes through waivers unclaimed, he'll continue to serve as organizational depth at Triple-A Buffalo.
Apr 5 - 4:34 PM

Blue Jays optioned LHP Juan Oramas to Triple-A Buffalo.

Oramas didn't allow a run in his two Grapefruit League appearances, but he entered camp as a long shot to go north. The lefty has a good shot to make his major league debut at some point in 2015.

Blue Jays claimed LHP Juan Oramas off waivers from the Padres.

Oramas had been designated for assignment earlier this week. The 24-year-old posted a 4.75 ERA, 1.54 WHIP, and 116/51 K/BB ratio in 136 1/3 innings this past season between Double- and Triple-A.

Padres designated LHP Juan Oramas for assignment.

Oramas gets the boot to clear a 40-man roster spot for Brandon Morrow, who was signed to a one-year, $2.5 million contract on Tuesday. Oramas, 24, had a 4.75 ERA, 1.54 WHIP, and 116/51 K/BB ratio in 136 1/3 innings this past season between Double-A and Triple-A.

Padres optioned LHP Juan Oramas to Triple-A Tucson, OF Yeison Asencio to Double-A San Antonio; reassigned OF Daniel Robertson, RHPs Adys Portillo and Joe Ross to minor league camp.

There are no surprises in this group. Oramas, 23, has a shot to make his major league debut this season after posting a 3.07 ERA with 64 strikeouts over 55 2/3 Double-A innings last year.

Padres purchased the contract of LHP Juan Oramas from Double-A San Antonio.

The 23-year-old southpaw finished with a 2.87 ERA with a 1.21 WHIP and 79/18 K/BB ratio in 62 2/3 innings between Double-A and the Padres' rookie league affiliate. Oramas' addition to the 40-man roster protects him from being selected in December's Rule 5 Draft.

Padres re-signed LHP Juan Oramas to a minor league contract.

Oramas was non-tendered by the Padres last month, but the two sides have hammered out a new agreement. The 22-year-old left-hander had Tommy John surgery in June and will likely be sidelined until around midseason.

Padres non-tendered LHP Juan Oramas.

The 22-year-old left-hander posted a disappointing 6.37 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 33/16 K/BB ratio in 35 1/3 innings at Double-A San Antonio in 2012, but was limited to just eight starts due to elbow trouble.
Fri, Nov 30, 2012 08:16:00 PM

Padres recalled LHP Juan Oramas from Double-A San Antonio.

Oramas was limited to just eight starts this season due to a bone spur in his pitching elbow. The Padres have high hopes for the 22-year-old.

Padres optioned LHP Juan Oramas to Double-A San Antonio.

Oramas, 21, posted a 3.49 ERA and 106/29 K/BB ratio over 108 1/3 innings this season between Double- and Triple-A last season. The diminutive lefty holds some intrigue but isn't ready for the majors.

Padres purchased the contract of LHP Juan Oramas from Double-A San Antonio.

The move protects him from December's Rule 5 Draft. Oramas, 21, posted a 3.49 ERA and 106/29 K/BB ratio over 108 1/3 innings this season between Double- and Triple-A. He's only 5-foot-10, but has three average or better pitches, including a plus-curveball. The southpaw should begin the 2012 season at the Triple-A level.
