The Orioles are expected to call up right-hander Odrisamer Despaigne on Tuesday.

The team has yet to make an official announcement. Despaigne, 29, has posted a 3.59 ERA and 53/20 K/BB ratio in 62 2/3 innings over 12 starts in Triple-A this season.

Orioles optioned RHP Odrisamer Despaigne to Triple-A Norfolk.

Despaigne surrendered 19 hits and 10 earned runs in 13 1/3 innings this spring in the Grapefruit League. He'll work out of the starting rotation at Norfolk.

Orioles acquired RHP Odrisamer Despaigne from the Padres for RHP Jean Cosme.

Despaigne posted an ugly 5.80 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and 69/32 K/BB ratio in 125 2/3 innings last season for the Padres, but he carries three minor league options and gives the O's some much-needed organizational pitching depth. The 28-year-old right-hander will probably open the 2016 season at Triple-A Norfolk, unless he can secure a long-relief role with a strong showing this spring. He does have experience as a starter too.

Odrisamer Despaigne turned in an unimpressive performance in Sunday's loss to the Giants, surrendering four runs on five hits over just 3 1/3 innings.

This was Despaigne's first start in over a month. It didn't go well. How poorly did it go? He held a 3-0 advantage entering the bottom of the second inning. In the frame, Ehire Adrianza notched an RBI single, but that paled in comparison to what would come: A three-run homer by Giants starting pitcher Mike Leake. Ouch. Despaigne will likely return to the bullpen, now, to lick the wounds that a 5.79 ERA and 1.38 WHIP tend to inflict on the soul.

The Padres have moved Odrisamer Despaigne to the bullpen.

Despaigne was tagged for seven runs over five innings in his last outing to push his ERA up to 5.11 for the season, so the move isn't surprising. Colin Rea will replace him in the rotation.

Odrisamer Despaigne was destroyed in Thursday afternoon's loss to the Brewers, yielding seven runs on nine hits over five innings.

Yikes. The 47-63 Brewers tossed up a run in the first inning, then unleashed back-to-back three-run frames covering the third and fourth innings. Despaigne struck out just one against three walks and now holds a bloated 5.11 ERA and 1.27 WHIP. A home start against the Reds awaits him on the schedule.

Odrisamer Despaigne supplied a quality start in Saturday's win over the Marlins, allowing three runs on five hits over six-plus innings.

Despaigne allowed two runs in the fifth inning on a pair of RBI singles, with an additional run scoring against him in the seventh to finish off his line. On the evening, he struck out five and walked one. While this start was fine, Despaigne's had his issues with consistency throughout the season and currently holds a 4.75 ERA and 1.21 WHIP. A road start against the Brewers is up next on the schedule as the Padres try to remain a relevant baseball team.

Odrisamer Despaigne pitched well in Sunday's victory over the Marlins, hurling six innings of one-run ball.

The right-hander allowed just six hits while striking out five on the afternoon. The only damage against him came on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Ichiro Suzuki in the fifth inning. He'll look to build off of this strong effort when he brings a 4.76 ERA into a rematch against these same Marlins in Miami on Saturday.

Odrisamer Despaigne was hit around to the tune of six runs in five innings, taking the loss versus the Giants on Tuesday.

Despaigne allowed two home runs: a solo shot to Hunter Pence in the second inning and a three-run job to Brandon Crawford in the fourth. He gave up seven hits overall while walking two and striking out only one batter. The right-hander's inability to miss bats has hurt him this year, as he has a miserable 4.98 ERA with a 1.26 WHIP and a 48/19 K/BB ratio over 90 1/3 innings. Despaigne will try to get back in the win column for the first time since May 31 when he finishes a homestand against the Marlins.

Odrisamer Despaigne pitched well in a no-decision against the Cardinals on Saturday, allowing just one run on four hits over his five frames.

The right-hander punched out three and walked just one on the afternoon. He has done a serviceable job as a replacement for the injured Brandon Morrow, posting a 4.75 ERA and 46/17 K/BB ratio in 83 1/3 innings. He'll look to get back in the win column on Friday when he takes on the Rangers in Texas.

Odrisamer Despaigne struggled in a losing effort against the Diamondbacks on Sunday, allowing five runs (four earned) on three hits in 5 2/3 innings.

Despaigne punched out six on the afternoon and didn't issue a walk. All of the damage against him came via the long ball, with Welington Castillo blasting a three-run homer in the second inning and David Peralta adding a solo shot in the third. Despaigne will carry a disappointing 4.94 ERA into Saturday's start against the Cardinals in St. Louis.

Odrisamer Despaigne struggled early in Wednesday's loss to the A's, surrendering four runs in the first inning and ultimately lasting six-plus innings.

Despaigne ran into trouble out of the gate, allowing hits to five of the first seven batters. The big blow in the inning came when Billy Butler socked a three-run homer off the 28-year-old right-hander. He allowed just two over his next five-plus innings, but the damage was already done. Despaigne had tossed quality starts in four of his last five outings, but Wednesday's game was certainly not that. Until Brandon Morrow is able to return to the rotation, Despaigne will continue to hold value in deeper NL-only formats, though owners shouldn't expect miracles with his 4.66 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 35/14 K/BB ratio in 67 2/3 innings. A road start against the Giants is up next on the docket.

Odrisamer Despaigne allowed two runs -- one earned -- in 6 1/3 innings Friday in a no-decision against the Dodgers.

Despaigne almost matched Clayton Kershaw, with only an unearned run doing him in. He's turned in quality starts in four of his last five outings, and it looks like he'll be of use in NL-only leagues for a while longer following Brandon Morrow's setback.

Odrisamer Despaigne took a loss, yielding four runs in six innings as the Padres dropped Sunday's game against the Reds 4-0.

All of the damage done against Despaigne came via the bat of Jay Bruce. He hit a solo homer in the second inning and a three-run shot in the sixth, accounting for all four runs. Despaigne served up nine hits overall, but walked none and struck out three. The 28-year-old has pitched better as of late, but is a risky proposition outside of NL-only leagues. Despaigne will bring a 4.72 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and 28/12 K/BB ratio over 55 1/3 innings into a home start against the Dodgers.
