Orioles send two pitchers packing
The Orioles have released veteran Aaron Laffey and fellow left-hander Steve Garrison . The 28-year-old Laffey showed some promise with Cleveland from 2007 to 2010, but never emerged as an effective starter. He bottomed out with the Mets and Blue Jays last season with a 7.11 ERA in five appearances.
Garrison sent to minors
The Mariners sent pitchers Steve Garrison, Philippe Valiquette and Jarrett Grube to the minors on Friday.
