Orioles DFA Ishikawa And Recall Jurrjens

The Orioles have designated Travis Ishikawa for assignment, according to Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com. The move will allow Baltimore to welcome Jair Jurrjens back to the active roster.

Ishikawa, 29, saw just six games of action for the O's varsity squad this season. As MLBTR first reported, the first baseman had an opt out clause in his minor league deal earlier this month. When he triggered it, Baltimore managed to find room for him on the big league roster. Ishikawa forced the issue by posting an impressive .316/.413/.525 slash line with seven homers in 208 plate appearances for Triple-A Norfolk.

Ishikawa is a quality player that was in an unluckly situation with Chris Davis on the roster. He'll latch on somewhere, and it could be the Yankees. He's better than Lyle Overbay.
