Orioles designated OF Jaycob Brugman for assignment.

The move clears a spot on the Orioles' 40-man roster for right-hander Chris Tillman, who was officially re-signed to a one-year deal on Wednesday. Baltimore acquired Brugman from the Athletics in November for a player to be named later or cash considerations. The 26-year-old outfielder batted just .266 with a .688 OPS over his first 162 major league plate appearances in 2017.

Orioles acquired OF Jaycob Brugman from the Athletics for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Brugman was designated for assignment by Oakland on Monday. The 25-year-old batted just .266 with a .688 OPS in 162 plate appearances this past season at the major league level, but he can play all three outfield spots and his minor league numbers suggest he's capable of better things offensively. Brugman will be in the running for a bench job next spring in Orioles camp.
