Earlier this week the Orioles optioned Freddy Garcia to Triple-A and because he’s a veteran he had the ability to decline the assignment. Garcia did just that, but today he re-signed with the Orioles on a new minor-league deal.

That means he’ll report to Triple-A and remains in Baltimore’s plans as a potential fill-in option.

Garcia pitched well during his first month with the Orioles, but fell apart this month and posted a 5.77 ERA in 53 innings overall. Dating back to last season the 36-year-old right-hander has a 5.39 ERA in 160 innings.

    So what’s the timeline, I wonder? Does he opt for free agency on the off-chance that some other team needs a fill-in, and when there are no jobs goes back to the Orioles cuz screw it, he’s already got leases in Norfolk and Baltimore anyway? Is there a chance this was about a bit more money from the O’s?

    Just interested, I suppose.
