Orioles Add LHP Richard Bleier from Yanks for PTBNL


LHP Richard Bleier was a 29 year old rookie last season for the New York Yankees who allowed 6 hits against 40 left-handed batters that he faced. He was DFA’d when the Yankees bought Chris Carter.

Originally a Texas Ranger, Bleier is a soft tossing LOOGY. He appears to have two minor league options.

Christian Walker was DFA’d to make room on the 40 man roster for the left hander. His future as an Orioles was blocked by the logjam in the outfield, a ne position for Walker, and the long term deals for both Chris Davis and Mark Trumbo. The moves have been announce by the Orioles.

Michael Williams
Michael Williams has been an Orioles fan since the sixties when his family moved from Reading Pa to York Pa. Also, the Phillies and 1964. His Grandfather got the Chef Boyardee box seats and Mike was hooked. Brooks Robinson calls him not a fan, but a friend. He has been a member of the Orioles Hangout since early in the New Millennium and Managing Editor since 2011. Or so it seems. He lives in Harrisburg PA, down by the river. Not currently in a van.
