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 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.
