Orioles designate C Jesus Sucre, place P Alex Cobb on IL
BALTIMORE– The Orioles have placed a starting pitcher on the Injured List, leading to another shuffling of the roster.
To replace Sucre on the roster, the team claimed P Shawn Armstrong off waivers from the Seattle Mariners.
Cobb, 31, has had a disastrous 2019 season, starting three games for the Orioles and finishing with 12.1 innings of 10.95 ERA ball. There is no timetable for his return.
Sucre, 30, was batting a lowly .210 with 3 RBI’s over 20 games for the team.
Incoming is Armstrong, 30, who had an awful start to the year with the Mariners.
Over 3.2 innings pitched, Armstrong has a 14.73 ERA.
The Orioles will hope he rebounds with the club.
