The former Pittsburgh farmhand joined the Orioles organization Saturday after nearly making the Pirates' Opening Day roster in 2016. The 26-year-old worked a 5.76 ERA over 45.1 innings at Triple-A Indianapolis last season. With the Orioles' bullpen mostly set at the major league level, Haley will likely remain at Double-A Bowie or Triple-A Norfolk in 2017.
Haley was designated for assignment on Saturday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Haley received the demotion as his performance with Triple-A Indianapolis has been abysmal this year. He's accumulated a 6.66 ERA and 1.89 WHIP over the span of 24.1 innings. The 25-year-old will likely head to Double-A Altoona where he'll look to improve upon his peripherals.
Trey Haley , who did not make the Opening Day roster, was among the Pittsburgh Pirates ' final cuts this spring.
The hard-throwing righty will attempt to earn a promotion to the big club from Triple-A Indianapolis.
Trey Haley was rocked for three homers and six earned runs in two-thirds of an inning Friday.
It was unlikely Haley cracked the bullpen prior to Friday and now it's even more unlikely he'll make the team. Look for the hard-throwing righty to open the season in Triple-A.
Trey Haley has impressed Pittsburgh with his mid-90s fastball but probably won't crack the Opening Day roster, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
He's on the 40-man roster and has options remaining, so the Pittsburgh Pirates will likely start him at Triple-A. Haley hasn't given up a run in five spring appearances covering five innings, allowing four hits and two walks while striking out four. He's walked 287 batters in 399.1 career minor-league innings, making improved control a requirement before he enters the scene in Pittsburgh.
