Date:

Jayson Aquino was scratched from his scheduled start Thursday for Triple-A Norfolk.

Aquino was supposed to pitch in Indianapolis but now it looks like he'll be headed to Kansas City, where he'll join the Orioles Friday for the start of their three-game set against the Royals. The left-hander carries a 9.00 ERA in three outings including one start for the O's this year.
May 11 - 7:50 PM

Orioles optioned LHP Jayson Aquino to Triple-A Norfolk.

Aquino was solid in a spot start for the O's but was then roughed up in consecutive relief appearances. He'll join Norfolk's rotation.
Apr 30 - 8:24 AM

Jayson Aquino held his own in a spot start Saturday against the Red Sox, scattering six hits, two runs and two walks over six innings of solid work for his first win of 2017.

He also added two strikeouts. Aquino was making his first career start. The only runs he allowed came on a towering two-run blast by Jackie Bradley in the third inning. Aquino didn't have many clean innings but was able to keep the damage to a minimum. He might get another start while the Orioles wait on Chris Tillman to return from a shoulder injury.
Apr 22 - 11:03 PM

Jayson Aquino will start Saturday against the Red Sox.

It will be the left-hander's first big league start. The Orioles haven't settled on a No. 5 starter in Chris Tillman's absence, instead rotating arms in and out based on matchups. Alec Asher, who was used last week when the Orioles needed a fifth starter, will pitch out of the bullpen going forward.
Apr 20 - 7:02 PM

Orioles recalled LHP Jayson Aquino from Triple-A Norfolk.

Aquino had allowed five runs -- four earned -- over nine innings (two starts) this season at the Triple-A level. He'll give the Orioles long relief depth.
Apr 19 - 3:21 PM

Orioles optioned LHP Jayson Aquino to Triple-A Norfolk.

Aquino could return later this month when the Orioles need a fifth starter. The lefty allowed just two runs over 15 innings this spring.
Apr 2 - 1:20 PM

Jayson Aquino tossed four innings of one-run ball and struck out four as the Orioles edged a Blue Jays split-squad 2-1 on Sunday.

Aquino might wind up as the Orioles' fifth starter with Chris Tillman (shoulder) set to spend most or all of April on the disabled list. He's not of any interest in AL-only leagues just yet, but he's done well in allowing just two runs in 15 innings this spring.
Mar 26 - 3:49 PM

Jayson Aquino has been cleared to pitch.

He'll be available out of the bullpen Sunday against the Diamondbacks. Aquino has spent the last few weeks at the team's spring training facility in Florida in an effort to limit his innings. The left-hander hasn't allowed a run in three relief appearances for the O's this year.
Sat, Sep 24, 2016 05:35:00 PM

Jayson Aquino will be sent to the Orioles' spring training complex after Wednesday's game.

Baltimore's decision-makers want Aquino to get innings, and he's not going to get them as a mop-up man at the major league level. The 23-year-old left-hander is at 129 innings between the minors and majors in 2016, after throwing 137 1/3 innings in 2015. He could challenge for an Opening Day rotation spot in 2017.

Orioles recalled LHP Jayson Aquino from Triple-A Norfolk.

Aquino made one appearance with the O's earlier this season and held a 3.72 ERA while working mainly as a starter between Double- and Triple-A. He'll be used in long relief in September.
Fri, Sep 2, 2016 02:25:00 PM

Orioles optioned LHP Jayson Aquino to Double-A Bowie.

Aquino has 2/3 of a scoreless inning to his name for the 2016 campaign. A return to Double-A is probably for the best, here, as it will allow the 23-year-old southpaw plenty of opportunities to develop and hone his craft. Opportunities that just did not exist for him with the big league club at this phase in his professional career. Prior to his July 4 promotion, he held a 3.25 ERA and 55/22 K/BB over 80 1/3 Double-A frames.

Orioles recalled LHP Jayson Aquino from Double-A Bowie.

Aquino, who was acquired from the Cardinals in April, owns a 3.25 ERA and 55/22 K/BB ratio in 80 1/3 innings over 13 starts and one relief appearance in Double-A this season. The 23-year-old southpaw will pitch in long relief.
Mon, Jul 4, 2016 04:53:00 PM

Orioles acquired LHP Jayson Aquino from the Cardinals for cash considerations; optioned him to Double-A Bowie.

Aquino was designated for assignment last weekend by St. Louis. The 23-year-old left-hander had a 3.28 ERA in 24 starts last year in the minors, but he has never pitched meaningful innings above High-A ball. He probably won't be a factor at the major league level in 2016.

Cardinals designated LHP Jayson Aquino for assignment.

The Cards claimed Aquino off waivers over the winter, but he was an early cut in spring training and is now off the 40-man roster. It's possible he'll pass through waivers this time.
