    • Janish announced that he will retire after the 2017 season to take a coaching job at Rice University, David Hall of The Virginian-Pilot reports. A fifth-round draft pick of the Reds in 2004, Janish has enjoyed a 14-year professional career. He's known more for his glove than his bat, as evidenced by the impressive .983 fielding percentage Janish posted over 473 major-league games. The 34-year-old shortstop will hang 'em up to rejoin Rice, where he was a captain on the Owls' 2003 national championship team.

    • Orioles' Paul Janish: Sent outright to Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Janish cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday. The veteran infielder was designated for assignment on Saturday, but he failed to attract any interest while he was exposed to waivers. Janish will continue on with the Orioles organization as an infield depth piece, although his major-league experience could help him head back up to the big leagues later in the season if injuries plague the squad in Baltimore.

    • Orioles' Paul Janish: DFA'd by Orioles
      By RotoWire Staff

      Janish was designated for assignment Saturday. Janish certainly hasn't impressed since being being brought up on June 19, recording just four hits in 41 at-bats while serving mainly as a reserve infielder. The Orioles hope to have the 34-year-old sent down to the minors as organizational depth, according to Eduardo A. Encina of The Baltimore Sun, though he may opt to become a free agent after spending the last three years with the club.

    • Janish is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rays. Janish had made four consecutive starts at shortstop earlier in the week, but after failing to impress, it seems Ruben Tejada has reemerged as manager Buck Showalter's top option at the position. Neither infielder brings much fantasy upside to the table, but Tejada makes for the more appealing option for the time being while he draws a fourth straight start Sunday.

    • Janish will start at shortstop and bat ninth Wednesday against the Blue Jays. It will be the fourth start in a row for Janish, who seems to have leapfrogged Ruben Tejada on the depth chart to become the Orioles' preferred option at shortstop while J.J. Hardy (wrist) is out. Janish brings a capable glove to the middle infield, but his career .214/.282/.286 batting line may make it hard to justify rostering him even in AL-only formats.
