The Orioles have released right-hander Armando Galarraga, Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com tweets. The move creates Triple-A roster space for left-hander Dana Eveland.

The Orioles had signed the 30-year-old SFX client to a minor league deal in January following a difficult 2011 season. Galarraga came within one out of throwing a perfect game for the Tigers in 2010, but the 2011 season wasn't nearly as successful. Galarraga, who was traded from Detroit to Arizona in January of 2011, posted a 5.91 ERA with 5.9 K/9 and 4.6 BB/9 in 42 2/3 innings for the D'Backs last year. He also made five Triple-A starts, allowing 24 earned runs in 23 1/3 innings.

His career sure seems to have peeked in a single night. Seemed like a classy guy in the way he handled that situation, hopefully he gets another chance

That was one of the thoughts I had when I read this. The other was that we are fortunate to have at least five starters at AAA and another five at AA that the team sees as better than him. Definitely an improvement over previous years.
