The Orioles optioned right-handed pitcher Mike Baumann to Triple-A Norfolk after Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Orioles were carrying 14 pitchers on their roster and had to cut a pitcher to comply with the 13-pitcher limit that’s effective beginning on Monday.

Baumann, who pitched a scoreless inning in Sunday’s 2-1 win over Tampa Bay, is 1-2 with a 4.50 earned-run average in 11 games.

It’s Baumann’s third option this season. Teams are limited to five options per season.
