Cubs claimed LHP Edgar Olmos off waivers from the Orioles.
The Cubs lost Olmos to the Orioles on a waiver claim earlier this month, but now he's back again. The 25-year-old southpaw spent most of the 2015 season at the Triple-A level, where he posted a 3.55 ERA and 34/13 K/BB ratio over 33 innings. Assuming he stays put, he could compete for a bullpen job in the spring. Wed, Dec 23, 2015 02:42:00 PM

Orioles claimed LHP Edgar Olmos off waivers from the Cubs.

Olmos was just claimed by the Cubs last week, and the O's are now his third organization since the start of December. The southpaw owned a 3.55 ERA and 34/13 K/BB ratio over 33 inning at Triple-A Tacoma, the Mariners' affiliate, this past season.

Cubs claimed LHP Edgar Olmos off waivers from the Mariners.

Olmos was removed from the Mariners' 40-man roster earlier this week when they needed to tender arbitration-eligible players. He spent most of 2015 at Triple-A, posting a 3.55 ERA and 34/13 K/BB ratio over 33 innings.

Mariners designated LHP Edgar Olmos for assignment.

The move clears a spot for Andy Wilkins on the 40-man roster. Olmos made six appearances (two starts) with the Mariners this past season, but spent most of the year in Triple-A where he posted a 3.55 ERA and 34/13 K/BB ratio over 33 innings.

Mariners optioned LHP Edgar Olmos to Triple-A Tacoma.

Olmos didn't make it out of the second inning in his start Friday night against the A's. The 25-year-old lefty had been used primarily as a reliever in the minors.

Edgar Olmos surrendered five runs -- four earned -- in 1 1/3 innings Friday in his start against the A's.

It's anyone's guess why the Mariners are giving starts to Olmos. He made just two in Triple-A this year after making none in the minors for the Marlins in 2013 and 2014. He's not going to be anything more than a reliever going forward, and it sure seems like the Mariners have better options to start in his place now.

Making his first career start, Edgar Olmos allowed three runs on five hits over five innings in Sunday's no-decision against the White Sox.

In addition to the five hits allowed, Olmos also walked five batters. The 25-year-old southpaw had been working from the bullpen prior to Sunday's start, with 7 2/3 scoreless innings out of the pen at the big league level. He held a 3.55 ERA in 20 Triple-A relief appearances prior to being called up on August 17.

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon announced Friday that Edgar Olmos will make his first career start on Sunday.

The 25-year-old southpaw has appeared out of the bullpen in all four of his outings with the M's this season, hurling 7 2/3 scoreless innings. He could be worth a look as a streaming option in AL-only leagues, though he's unlikely to work deep into the ballgame.

Mariners recalled LHP Edgar Olmos from Triple-A Tacoma.

Olmos holds a 3.55 ERA over 20 relief appearances at Tacoma this season. He'll work in middle relief.
Mon, Aug 17, 2015 04:31:00 PM

Mariners activated RHP Edgar Olmos from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Tacoma.

Olmos had been sidelined since late spring with a left shoulder impingement. He'll begin rebuilding strength in his throwing arm against Triple-A competition and should become an option for the M's bullpen later this summer.
Wed, May 20, 2015 05:08:00 PM

Mariners placed RHP Edgar Olmos on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 30, with a left shoulder impingement.

Olmos will be eligible to rejoin the Mariners bullpen in mid-April, but it's unlikely he will be ready by then. He is scheduled to begin throwing off flat ground on Monday.
Fri, Apr 3, 2015 08:21:00 PM

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said that Edgar Olmos (shoulder) should start throwing off flat ground next Monday.

The Rangers claimed Olmos off waivers from the Mariners last month, but the claim was voided after he was diagnosed with a left shoulder impingement. The 24-year-old appears likely to begin the year on the DL.

The Rangers have returned LHP Edgar Olmos to the Mariners.

The Rangers claimed Olmos off waivers from the Mariners last week, but they are getting it reversed after he was diagnosed with a left shoulder impingement. The 24-year-old southpaw was previously designated for assignment by Seattle after the Rickie Weeks signing.
Wed, Mar 4, 2015 09:35:00 AM

Edgar Olmos will be held back from throwing due to a left shoulder impingement.

It's not clear when Olmos, who was just claimed off waivers earlier this week, might be ready to throw again. The southpaw was already a long shot to crack the Opening Day roster.

Rangers claimed LHP Edgar Olmos off waivers from the Mariners.

Olmos was designated for assignment earlier this month after the Mariner signed Rickie Weeks. The 23-year-old made five appearances with the Marlins last season and posted a 4.06 ERA and 60/30 K/BB ratio over 77 2/3 innings between Double- and Triple-A.
