Date:

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.
Sep 7 - 12:26 PM

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.
Sep 2 - 2:25 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.
Jul 6 - 11:51 PM

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.
Jul 4 - 4:53 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.
Apr 7 - 11:24 AM

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.
Apr 3 - 8:22 AM

Cardinals optioned LHP Jayson Aquino to Triple-A Memphis; Re-assigned RHP J.C. Sulbaran, Trey Nielsen, Daniel Poncedeleon, Luke Weaver, LHP Corey Littrell and Cs Steve Bean, Luis Cruz and Alberto Rosario to minor league camp.

There are no real surprises with this round of cuts, though Sulbaran potentially could have earned a spot in the club's Opening Day bullpen. Aquino is an interesting talent, though is 23-years-old and has never pitched meaningful innings above High-A ball.
Mar 13 - 10:32 PM

Cardinals claimed LHP Jayson Aquino off waivers from the Indians.

Aquino was designated for assignment by the Indians this week after they claimed outfielder Joey Butler off waivers from the Rays. The 23-year-old has yet to pitch above High-A and had a 3.28 ERA in 24 starts with three different organizations in 2015.

Indians designated LHP Jayson Aquino for assignment.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Joey Butler. Aquino, 23, posted a 3.80 ERA in A-ball in 2015, striking out just 86 over 137 1.3 innings.

Indians LHP prospect Jayson Aquino came within five outs of a no-hitter Saturday in a win for High-A Lynchburg.

He scattered four hits and one walk over 8 2/3 shutout innings. 63 of Aquino's 86 pitches went for strikes. The 22-year-old has already been traded twice this season despite a respectable 3.36 ERA in 131 1/3 innings. Saturday's victory was his first since joining Lynchburg on August 7.
