Kolarek was signed by the Orioles following his release from the Mets in early October, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports. Kolarek, who pitched with Double-A Binghamton in 2015, improved upon his dreadful 2014 numbers (6.07 ERA, 1.75 WHIP in 56.1 innings), but not by much, posting a 4.43 ERA and 1.30 WHIP in 67 innings with the Double-A affiliate this season and was subsequently released. He will now try to climb the minor league ladder with the Orioles.
The Mets made several roster moves Monday, which included optioning Erik Goeddel, Steven Matz, Josh Edgin and Wilfredo Tovar to the minors. Logan Verrett, Adam Kolarek, Chasen Bradford, Dustin Lawley, Brandon Nimmo, Cory Vaughn, Danny Muno and Kevin Plawecki were also reassigned to minor-league camp.
