The Orioles announced on Twitter that they have designated right-hander Jair Jurrjens for assignment in order to clear a 40-man roster spot for Jairo Asencio, who has been called up from Triple-A Norfolk.


Nice call by osforlife who predicated that Ascencio would eventually be called up to fill Strop's BP role more than a week ago.

Jurrjens hasn't been sharp in AAA this year, in fact, he's been practically the exact same pitcher as he was last year in AAA. Take a look: http://www.baseball-reference.com/minor ... rrje001jai . He'll most likely go unclaimed and continue to provide reasonable depth at Norfolk.

Jurrjens has cleared waivers and elected to become a free agent.
