The Orioles announced that they have designated Jairo Asencio for assignment. The move allows the O's to recall outfielder L.J. Hoes from Triple-A Norfolk.
Asencio, 30, appeared in four games for Baltimore this season and allowed two runs. In parts of four big league seasons, the right-hander owns a 5.34 ERA with 6.6 K/9 and 4.5 BB/9. Across four Triple-A campaigns, the veteran has a much sharper 2.44 ERA with 10.1 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9.
Hoes will be starting in LF today. It will interesting to see whether he can maintain the same plate discipline he displayed in AAA.
