    Japanese pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada tries on an Orioles cap after signing with the Orioles in Baltimore

    Two offseasons ago Tsuyoshi Wada left Japan to sign a two-year, $8 million deal with Baltimore, but he underwent Tommy John elbow surgery before ever throwing a pitch for the Orioles. He hit the free agent market again after having a $5 million team option declined and now Wada has agreed to a minor-league deal…

    Tsuyoshi Wada hasn’t thrown a pitch for the Orioles since signing a two-year, $8.15 million contract with the club in December of 2011. And while he is now fully recovered from Tommy John surgery on his left elbow, he’s still not ready to join the big club. After Wada posted a miserable 8.14 ERA and…

    Japanese pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada tries on an Orioles cap after signing with the Orioles in Baltimore

    Tsuyoshi Wada has yet to throw a pitch for the Orioles since signing a two-year, $8 million deal in December of 2011, suffering an elbow injury last spring that eventually required Tommy John surgery. He’s on the comeback trail and Rich Dubroff of CSNBaltimore.com reports that the Orioles are targeting June 1 for the left-hander’s…

    Tsuyoshi Wada signed a two-year, $8.15 million contract with the Orioles last offseason, but he didn’t throw a pitch for the club in 2012 because he required Tommy John surgery in May. And now his recovery is expected to stretch into the 2013 season. According to Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports, Orioles pitching coach Rick…

    Remember Tsuyoshi Wada? The Japanese left-hander signed a two-year, $8.15 million free agent contract with the Orioles last winter but developed elbow discomfort shortly after arriving at spring training and wound up needing Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery in early April.

    Wei-Yin Chen

    In an effort to boost a rotation that had MLB’s worst ERA last season the Orioles brought in a pair of starters who’d thrived in Japan, signing Wei-Yin Chen for $11.3 million and Tsuyoshi Wada for $8.15 million. Wada experienced elbow problems early in spring training and will miss the entire season following Tommy John…

    The Orioles signed Tsuyoshi Wada to a a two-year, $8.15 million contract over the winter. Then he couldn’t make it out of spring training due to elbow soreness, and since then has pitched a grand total of one inning of minor league ball. But now his year — and most of next, I’d wager — is over:…

    Initial tests showed ligament damage in Tsuyoshi Wada‘s sore elbow and the Orioles left-hander will get a second opinion from renowned surgeon Dr. Lewis Yocum. Yocum actually performed Wada’s pre-signing physical exam and gave him a clean enough bill of health that the Orioles inked the Japanese veteran to a two-year, $8.15 million contract. However,…

    One wonders if the Orioles may have found the new Koji Uehara when they signed Tsuyoshi Wada to a two-year, $8.15 million contract in December. Uehara was signed as a starter, only to end up in the bullpen late due to durability concerns. Wada could follow the same path after being shut down indefinitely Sunday…
