SARASOTA, Fla.- The Orioles added right-handed pitcher Gabriel Ynoa to their roster last
Friday after acquiring him from the New York Mets for cash options.
Ynoa, 23, of the Dominican Republic, was called up to the majors in 2016, pitching a perfect 11th inning against the Padres for his debut win with the Mets. His major league career consists of 10 games with three starts, 17 strikeouts and a 6.38 ERA.
Making room for Ynoa on the 40-man roster leaves catcher Francisco Peña designated for assignment, according to reporter Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com.
Ynoa joins the predominantly right-handed pitching staff at spring training this year.
